Best Gifts For Big Kids


For elementary-aged kids, Christmas is a pretty big deal! My kids in this age range have been talking about the excitement of new Christmas gifts for weeks! They love to receive but they also enjoy giving as well.  We always let our kids do a "Secret Santa" with each other just so they get to experience that it's really more blessed to give than to receive. Together with Janessa and Miranda of Thrifty Nifty Mommy, I've assembled my top picks for the best gifts for kids! You'll find great ideas here for all the elementary-aged kids on your list, no matter what your budget!
