Most popular gifts this year for kids ages 4 -7

What are the best kids Christmas gifts this year? It won’t be long before Christmas is here.

I know my 7 year old daughter is already so excited. Of course she has many items we’ve added to a wish list throughout the year. Plus, there are things that are always a hit even if they weren’t on her wish list.

Do you know what the kids in your life want this year?

It can be a challenge. This is a really fun age for kids because they still love to play. Yet, it is overwhelming to know what to choose from the zillions of items available.

Now comes the really fun part. I always love shopping for the little ones.

However, if I don’t know what they want I end up scrolling endlessly on Amazon. Or aimlessly circling the toy department at my favorite stores, and sometimes walking out empty handed.

The good news is that this won’t happen to me or you this year. Not a chance, because I created a huge list of the best kids Christmas gifts.

These are based on my own experiences with my daughter and her friends (boys and girls). I also checked out what the hottest items are this year to add to the list.
