Gifts for 5-10 Year Olds under $30

I’ll claim the broken record card when I say, “I can’t believe my daughter, nieces, and nephews are officially in the 5-10 age category!” I remember when they were all in diapers, barely sitting up, and keeping us mamas awake for all hours in the night. And now? They’re the coolest kids on the block and I get to shop for them for Christmas!

This age group is such a blast because they are reading, can follow directions, and often have die-hard hobbies. It’s so fun to introduce them to classics I enjoyed at their age and learn from them about all the new gadgets available.
