20 imaginative gifts from Amazon for kids ages 3-15Written by Jamie Martin of Simple Homeschool and Steady Mom

Still looking for that perfect gift choice for one of your little (or big) people?

To help you in the search, I’ve compiled a list of 20 gifts from Amazon that inspire the imagination. Many of these we’ve enjoyed in our own home–other ideas came from those of you on Facebook who mentioned what you’re choosing for your children this year.

I’ve put these in order by price, so that no matter your budget you can find something that suits you. I’ve also mentioned an age range so you can get a feel for which would be right for your kids.

Prices can fluctuate slightly on Amazon, but these amounts were accurate (based on Amazon Prime) as of when I finished the post. And if you’ve completed your shopping already, consider starting a “Wish List” with any items that strike your fancy–make your gift giving in the future even easier!
