20 inspiring gifts from Amazon for kids ages 2-16


Written by Jamie Martin of Simple Homeschool

Not quite finished with your holiday shopping for the kids yet?

Never fear, I’ve got you covered! This list of 20 inspiring gifts from Amazon will help you out whether you have toddlers, teens, or some age in between–so make sure you check out the whole list here.

I’ve tried as much as possible to put these in order by price, but I haven’t actually listed the amount since costs fluctuate on Amazon. Just click over to find the current rate. You still have several days left to order and receive your packages in time for Christmas!

If you’ve completed your shopping already, treat yourself to a cookie. You deserve it! Add these ideas to a wishlist for next year and you’ll be ahead of the game when the time comes.

I‘m so happy I recently discovered the new ethical spending site: Shop Ethically! Not only is it a terrific idea, but check this out:

The bundle is only available through December 16th, so download yours now below:
