Gifts For Kids Under 5 For Under $30

Gifts For Kids Under 5 For Under $30

Did you see my gift round up for preschoolers? Well, I’m continuing with my love for this age group, (seriously, they’re the best) but on a budget friendly strain 🙂 All of these gifts are perfect for girls and boys 5 and under. And they won’t break the bank! Everything is under $30!

Truly, when it comes to young kids, they tend to love a $3 gift as much as a $300 one. It’s the beauty of their innocence and I so appreciate how they embrace the holidays – learning to give and graciously receive. Let these ideas be a kickstarter for gifts you plan to give your kids, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and friends – I’m sure you’ll get a hearty hug of thanks for each and every one!
