Gifts Your Kids Will Love *Way* More Than The Box They Came In

Sticky fingers, sugar comas, and a not-so-silent night—while it might sound like your worst nightmare before Christmas, it sounds all too familiar for a parent during the holidays. Don’t get me wrong, the holidays might be one of the hardest times of year but they’re also the most rewarding. Especially if you manage to find a stocking stuffer your kid will actually want to play with instead of empty boxes and trashed gift wrap. And, I guess the whole, “seeing the holidays through your kids eyes,” is nice too. 

But honestly, finding a good gift for your child is like trying to find a missing Cheerio in the couch cushions—a lost cause. Luckily, we have a pretty impressive roster of Betches Moms in the group chat and polled them to find the best gifts for kids. So, instead of needing to go into the season totally clueless (like us parents do with everything else) we’ve got a whole list for you to choose from. Consider this and early holiday gift—enjoy.
