26 Gifts For Kids Adults Will Want Too (And That You'll Want To Buy For Them ASAP)

Age is just a number.

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. An OMG-worthy remote-control Krabby Patty car with working headlights and helmed by none other than SpongeBob (look out, Mrs. Puff) so they can have a blast zooming around and doing everything they were taught not to do at a stoplight.

2. The A Million Cute Animals coloring book, which has ridiculously squee-worthy, whimsical illustrations that strike just the right balance of simple and detailed to make it fun for artists of all ages.

3. A festive Pusheen plush who's offering this simple phrase to kids from 1 to 92: meowy Christmas to you.

4. An absolutely iconic RBG Funko Pop! figure to inspire anyone, anytime, of any age. Why get your fave kiddo a generic superhero action figure when you can gift them a ~notorious~ real-life superhero?

5. A set of 10 classic Pokémon figures you could give to the kids in your life or just keep for yourself to make up for the ones your mom sold on eBay 15 years ago without your consent that you still miss to this day. Also, did the Charizard figure you had as a kid shoot fire like this one??? Didn't think so.

6. A fuzzy blanket held by a long-armed plush animal friend, which certainly puts the "fun" in "function." It's a perfect way to make a practical gift for a little kiddo more fun, but wouldn't it also be a cute storage solution in your BFF's apartment? I think yes.

7. A set of no-show socks inspired by the original Disney squad to give them the happiest feet on Earth.

8. A build-and-decorate-your-own pinball game kit designed to help kids ages five and up learn about physics and motion, but that will also be a heck of a lot of fun for anyone in the family to reach for and play a game whenever they want.

9. Cool and collapsible over-ear headphones that can adjust to fit the whole family or your favorite kiddo as they grow. It's a super small investment for a gift that'll get a ton of use — and that should be music to your ears.

10. Throw Throw Burrito, a card game friends and fam can play indoors or out that, yes, involves throwing squishy burritos at each other. It also feels like a healthy way to relieve some of the frustrations that inevitably pop up when everyone gets together for the holidays.

11. An unbelievably awww-worthy animal waffle maker guaranteed to make recipients of any age wonder why they've ever let breakfast be boring.

It's nonstick and can make seven different snack-size animals at once!

Promising review: "These waffles brought smiles and giggles to our breakfast table. Our kids are 10.5 and 12, and they really enjoyed the animal shapes and particularly the 'dipping' size of the waffles. And so did my husband and I. The waffle maker is super easy to use, all the faces were clearly imprinted, and I didn't have any issue with cooking time or uneven browning. LOTS of FUN! Why not? Wish we'd had this years ago!" —jchungmd

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with express delivery, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Christmas (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $39.95.

12. An animatronic Baby Yoda toy who can open and close his eyes and move his head, ears, and arms — including reaching up his arms to show he wants to be picked up (say it with me: awww!!!). He also comes with four accessories (mostly food, of course) and he'll react when each one is placed in his hands.

13. A teeny and ear-resistible kitty crossbody purse adults will wish came in their size (but could totally steal and use as a travel pouch for jewelry or makeup).

14. A precious leopard Squishmallow pal equally excellent for cuddling or making an otherwise plain couch look fierce.

15. A set of too-cute-for-words animal face baskets that'd look adorbs in a nursery, sure, but also holding knickknacks in a grown-up adult apartment.

16. A pair of the rainbow fidget pop toys that are super popular with kids right now, but are also ideal for grown-up hands to play with while watching TV, sitting through a dull meeting, or trying not to pop that pesky zit.

17. A giant squishy whale shark plush for anyone, of any age, who knows that the world's largest fish is also the world's cutest. Like, it's krilling me how adorable it is.

18. Squee-worthy and sweet-as-honey Winnie The Pooh slipper socks perfect for a cozy day at home curled up watching childhood classics.

19. A soothing lavender-scented plush pal who can be heated in the microwave or chilled in the freezer to provide extra comfort to anyone from an anxious toddler to a grown-up with cramps or sore muscles. Or anyone who could just use a hug.

20. A precious and not-too-challenging rainforest animal puzzle that'll probably introduce both kiddos *and* grown-ups to some cool animals they've never heard of before. The difficulty level is more relaxing than frustrating, so they'll have no menagarie-grets about starting this one.

21. A glam rose gold Disney backpack with subtle Mickey ears accents, adjustable straps, plenty of pockets, and — best of all — a perforated design made to display their epic pin collection whether they're at school, work, a sleepover, or Disneyland.

22. And a fun fringed hair accessory organizer with strips that parents or kiddos can braid, tie, and twist to hold different kinds of headbands, clips, and hair ties. It's equally great for budding Blair Waldorfs with one too many headbands as it is for anyone who does dance, cheer, gymnastics or other sports that cause them to acquire a LOT of bows.

23. A Tacosaurus so the ~rex~ of their taco Tuesday won't get all over their plate, tablecloth, and person. This fearsome friend can hold two tacos or other slim foods like sandwiches or donuts and will go down in (pre)history for how much fun he makes suppertime for kiddos and adults alike.

24. A DIY pin-and-flair kit for anyone who's ready for a throwback (or to introduce the kids in their lives to some '80s/'90s/'00s toy magic). The whimsical, color-them-yourself designs in this set work just like old-school Shrinky Dinks, and then they can attach 'em to anything from pin backs to keychains to barrettes.

25. A unicorn beanbag that'll put even the fancy-schmanciest West Elm furniture their parents so expertly curated to shame — everyone will agree this is the best seat in the house.

26. And a positively incredible surfing potato LED light, because can you think of a single person on Earth who wouldn't welcome this little fella into their room? Whether they're 12 or 112, the recipient is sure to ~wave~ about it.
