2.  Wall Art

Wall Decals are a great way to make a huge impression for little price.  Decals are large and sure to thrill your little ones no matter there age.  There are endless selections as for as characters, designs, art or quotes that can be applied to your child’s room or play area.

We purchased a Hulk Decal (only $19.99!!!) for our son on Christmas.  While he slept we applied it to his bedroom wall and he woke up elated at the new decor adorning his wall.  The impact this gift had was so delighting we purchased Captain America for this Birthday.  These are really easy to apply, they don’t damage the wall or paint and you can move them around whenever you please.

    1. They are pricey. However, I believe the cost is worth it considering they last the test of time. I have spend so much on toys that fall short of little ones rough play and have to be tossed.

  1. Ok I LOVE this post! I always try to steer our kids’ grandparents to get them gifts that will stand the test of time (like these) instead of ones with all the bells and whistles and lights! 🙂

  2. Seriously my kids would love all these gifts! Great suggestions. I especially love the mushroom fort, and the magnetic blocks!

  3. A giant “yes” to the teepee idea! My MIL made one for my husband when he was little, and now my son plays in it. He LOVES it! It’s great for play, for stories, for naps, for “camp outs,” and picnics!

    1. Haha, I know what you mean. I love the glowing balls too. We purchased these when my son was little and transitioning into a toddler bed. They helped to ease him into the idea and took the fear out of the new situation.

  4. Wallpapers are my personal favorite, I’m so in love with them. And some of these other ideas, I have never even thought of them!
    Thanks for sharing, now I’d be sharing on Twitter!

  5. You are so right!! My kids would love a fort or costume at any time! LOL but, I never think of these ideas for other kids gifts! Thanks!!
