PSST! There’s a Target gift card giveaway at the bottom of this post, a bonus to the one already going on over here, with four of our favorite things. It’s the giving season after all, right, so go enter them both now!

It’s the shopping season and even though we don’t have kids yet, we still have a few children to shop for on our Christmas list. (And let’s be honest, I’ve bought Hubs some sort of toy every year so far!) This year, Target asked us to spend a little time shopping for kids and see what our favorite finds were, and when they offered, I accepted. Why not shop at Target? It. has. everything.

We’ve boasted about our love for ol’ “big red” more than a few times, but here is one of our most recent shopping trip favorites, also a kids item I bought for Hubs…I’m sensing a trend there…

Mr. Robot Bank 4

Anyway, this is how we found a few fun finds for kids as part of their #MyKindOfHoliday promotion. (Also, have you seen those commercials? So clever and a little bit annoyingly catchy…but the one with the presents on the ceiling tied to balloons? CUTE!)

We had so much fun window shopping for fun gifts that I kept forgetting I didn’t get to actually take everything home with me. Although, if I could have, I would have grabbed almost everything on this display.

And these chairs…they are the cutest folding chairs I’ve ever seen! I think they were made specifically for my kitchen, don’t you think?

And Hubs would have taken these home in a heartbeat if I would have let him! (Can you tell he likes legos and minions? Maybe it’s the big yellow heads…?)

Target Toys for Christmas

We are mostly shopping for older kids this year, so clothes are always popular. I’d wear this myself, so I’m sure my cousin would like these adorable options. Although she’s 13 now…so I guess teens are unpredictable. Still, I’d buy these for her, for sure!

Kid Target Clothes for Christmas

Another cousin is really into sports, so I know he’d really like the following options:

Target Sports Toys for Christmas

And they both love games, so I’m sure they’d get a kick out of playing  this one. Looks fun!

We also happen to know a few littler ones who would appreciate some Target stuff because, oh-my-goodness, who wouldn’t want this cuteness? Those shoes make me want to cry a little they’re so dang adorable.

Target Baby Clothes For Christmas

And my favorite kid gifts are from the entertainment section, because babies need books, guys!

Target Books for Christmas

Of course, sometimes, if you’re giving a gift to a really young kid, like a newborn baby, for instance, it can be nice to let the parents do their own shopping. And Target has options for that, too!


Now, for the fun part, the giveaway!

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment with the gift you’d give to a little one on your own Christmas list. Visit Target’s online catalog here for ideas! 

We’ll select a winner at random and send them a $25 Target gift card, courtesy of Target! Giveaway closes at midnight on Sunday, so enter right now!

    I would get a toy that makes lots of noise for both my great nephews. And maybe a set of Legos for my Grandma tote.

    Yay Target! This year, Everly is getting her favorite Target item that I never let her play with – her own box of baby wipes to play with! I’m sure she’ll get lots of fun toys and clothes from her extended family though… so no worries, she’s well taken care of on that front.

      Great gift idea! And yes, babies do tend to get a lot of presents, everyone just loves them so we can’t help it!

    Target has a special series of games. Monopoly, Risk, Scrabble, & Clue. They look like wooden library books. The front cover slips off and all the game pieces are inside. The box never gets ruined and they look GREAT on the shelf. Perfect for gifts. They made kid versions for awhile of chutes and ladders and such. I love the series. Need to buy Clue still. Target is Ah-Maze-ing and they give back to the community.

    I love Target!!! They have such great variety for everyone. For the little ones on my list I would get Legos to entertain their imaginations!

    I’m looking for the prefect new purse! And somehow that’s always one of the hardest things for me to find.

    The polka dot pants for your cousin is perfect and I can testify that you DO wear it yourself! 🙂 I actually got a gift for a little one for Christmas at target. I found the DVD ‘All Dogs Go to Heaven” for $5!!! Yes!!!! And I have the game Guestures and LOVE it. I can’t believe we haven’t played it together.

    I want to give my little girl Violet (a leapfrog puppy), a taggy blanket and a piggy bank!
