2021 Holiday Gift Guides: For the Kids

The McGee’s picks for kids gifting this season

10 November 2021 -

We’re getting ahead of shopping for our kids this year… 

and if you’re anything like us, the little ones in your life change their minds about what they want for Christmas about as much as they change their favorite color (every five minutes).  

The truth is, though, sometimes the best gifts are the ones they didn’t even know they wanted in the first place. We’re determined to get ahead of holiday shopping this season, and we’re excited to share our finds for the best gift for kids in 2021 in this highly requested gift guide.

Stocking stuffers 

If you want to fill your kid’s stockings with more than just candy, it can be hard to find the good stuff. These options are so fun that we secretly want them in ours, too! 

Arts & crafts 

It seems like there are more arts & crafts gift options each year, and we’re here for it! In the McGee Home, there are always at least two different craft projects spread out on the table, and these gifts are definitely Ivy & Wren approved. 

Books & games 

We love gifting our kids’ books and games that we can read or play together. This collection of Roald Dahl and Nancy Drew books bring back all the nostalgia. Plus, who wouldn’t love Harry Potter-themed Uno? 


These toys are as cute as they are creative, and they are engaging enough not to be forgotten about after Christmas morning. This toy cottage dollhouse reminds us of the McGee Home exterior, and we wish all workbenches looked like this Crate & Kids version. 

Active toys 

Get your kids up and moving with these active toys they will love for years to come. You might recognize this Jump’n Slide Bouncer from our Netflix show, Dream Home Makeover, and this Activity Gym is cute enough to blend right into your home decor. 

For baby 

Although you might not be into wrapping gifts for your baby on Christmas morning, the holidays are a good excuse to finally add that new outfit you’ve been eyeing to your cart or gift to a friend with a little one!
