49 Gifts To Cover Every Child On Your List From Tots To Teens

A one-and-done list so you can shop now and spend the rest of your time on more important things, like your holiday film watchlist.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

What a year! The holidays are finally here! And while we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time, shipping times are especially tricky this year, so we suggest shopping as early as you can.

Stock and shipping times can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. So order earlier than you think you need to and be sure to double-check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for when you need it.

1. A Tobi 2 smart watch for kid-friendly tech that shares similarities with other smart watch devices. They can take selfies, play games solo or with friends, and even track their steps.

2. A Digimon X virtual pet monster that'll let you raise and train your own pet monster and battle them against friends. It's the same nostalgic toy of the '90s with a few upgrades, ready to entertain a new generation.

3. A bedtime soother complete with a night-light and sound machine that'll be their favorite part of bedtime.

4. A bouncy pal they can ride indoor or outdoor all over the house. If you think you can't catch them now, wait until they take off on their noble ~magical~ steed.

5. A Miko 3 — a splurge-worthy robot that might look like a fancy toy to the untrained eye but is so much more. This robot is packed with games and educational content and can play, help with homework, and act as a video chat device when you want to check in on the kid. It's...pretty amazing.

6. A Got2Glow Fairy Finder in case the child you're shopping for is enamored by the magic of fairies. Carry the jar around and find fairies to collect. Once they catch the fairy, they can feed, play, and care for it. Each jar can collect more than 30 fairies, with 100+ fairies to collect in total. Friends can trade fairies they collect, too.

7. Pixicade mobile game maker in case the child you're gifting is not only into video games but also interested in making their own. They can draw a photo, take a picture of it, play, and share their game. They can build 1,200 video games! 🤯

8. An innovative smart teddy that's just as much a gift to the child as it is to the parent. This teddy comes with 28 bedtime stories and more than 30 daily routines that help the child to develop good habits.
