Our three daughters are currently ages 6, 4, and 1. We love to use the holidays to focus on giving them items in the categories of “something you want, something you need, something to wear, something to read.” Here’s our holiday gift guide for kids 6-8 years old, with ideas in each category inspired by our 6-year-old.

Gift Guide for Kids 6-8 Years Old

Something You Want

Whatsit play couch – This play couch includes 6 pieces that can be reconfigured in lots of different ways. It can become a sofa, 2 chairs, a fort, or anything you can imagine. The cushions are made from thick, dense foam and have removable and washable covers, so they can endure lots of active play!

OOLY craft kit – This Razzle Dazzle DIY Gem Art Kit is sure to delight! It comes in cute llama, unicorn, lion, and fox versions. The kit includes everything you need to create the art, including tools and a standing frame for display.

OOLY art supplies – OOLY has so many fun, colorful art sets for coloring, drawing, and writing. We are stocking up on fresh art supplies, and we love that they offer bonus boxes.

Something You Need

123 Treasure Hunt math game –  This is a fun game to practice counting and number recognition skills. The cards include basic addition and subtraction problems, that the player gets to solve and then move that many spaces!

Joovy helmet – This is a bright, safe, comfortable helmet that is easy to adjust. It’s perfect to wear while riding bikes or scooters. Our 6-year-old daughter wears hers on her daily scooter commute to school.

Iron Flask water bottle – Our daughter uses this stainless steel water bottle every day at school because it keeps her water cold ALL DAY! She uses the 18 oz wide mouth size in the violet color, but there are lots of colors and sizes to choose from. Every water bottle also comes with 3 different lid styles, so you can find the one that works best for your drink. Use promo code TIDYDAD for 10% off an order.

Something to Wear

Kyte Baby pajama set and Kyte Baby tiered dress – These pajama sets are made out the softest bamboo fabric that is super stretchy and comfortable for sleeping. The dress is made of a silky tiered material that is perfect for spinning and twirling! Our daughters love these clothes for day and night!

Vessi waterproof sneakers – These waterproof sneakers are a game changer for daily walk to school. Our daughter can walk and ride her scooter comfortably, and still arrive to school with dry socks! They are comfortable, supportive, and the solid black style fits into her dress code. Use code TIDYDAD for $15 off an order.

Primary puffer jacket – We have our eye on these lightweight puffer jackets for the girls. They look super warm, but not heavy. They come in a rainbow of bright, solid colors. Use code TIDYDAD20 for 20% off your 1st order + free shipping.

Something to Read

Bravery magazine – This quarterly print publication for kids features strong women role models in each issue. It is full of illustrated stories, creative DIYs, and educational activities. It is a tool to empower kids to dream, learn, do, and become their own kind of brave. Use code TIDYDAD for 10% off an order.

Yoto Player  – Our girls all love listening to audio books and music on their Yoto Player, and we love that the device has no cameras, microphones, or ads. We love to use holidays to add audio cards to their collection, and this year our oldest daughter is getting the The Ramona Quimby Audio Collection.

Bake, Make, & Learn to Cook – This cookbook was created by the 2019 winner of The Great British Baking Show, David Atherton. It is filled with fun and healthy recipes for young aspiring cooks.

I hope this roundup inspires some fun ideas for you in categories of “something you want, something you need, something to wear, something to read.”

About me

Hi, my name is Tyler Moore. My wife and I live with our three young daughters in a 700- square-foot apartment in New York City. I began my tidying journey when an early-30’s crisis invited me to reflect upon, challenge, and change my patterns of daily living. I quit my job as a school administrator, returned to teaching, and started Tidy Dad to help others tidy, simplify, and find joy in their lives. I firmly believe the tidying process can transform your life. I’d love for you to join me in exploring ways that tidying can make room for what’s important in life.
