Festive Finds: 12 Creative Christmas Gift Ideas for Kids

Christmas is just around the corner (can you believe it?), and it's time to start thinking about gifts for the kids in your life.  

At Springfree Trampoline, bringing joy to families through outdoor play is our passion. If you’re looking to bring joy to your children through creative gift-giving this Holidays, the ideas below will serve you well.  

We’ve got a mix of backyard products (our specialty!) and other unique Christmas gift ideas that are sure to delight your kiddos come Christmas Day.  

12 Unique Christmas Gift Ideas for the Little Ones  

We will break this List down into three categories:  

  • Stocking Stuffers 
  • Mid-Sized Christmas Gift Ideas 
  • Primary Christmas Gift Ideas  

Each category will contain four creative Christmas gift ideas – let’s get to it!

Stocking Stuffers  

Which small Christmas gifts will fill those stockings that serve as the appetizers for what’s to come…  

1. Specialized Socks  

You can’t go wrong with getting your kids some cool socks as a stocking stuffer. There are so many themed socks to choose from that there’s something for every kid. 

Whether your child likes sports, music, science or movies, there are options galore in the themed-sock world.  

We like Good Luck Sock as a place to look online for some stocking-stuffer socks! See some of the options below from their catalog:  

Kids themed socks.

2. So Slime Lava Kit  

Kids love slime, and the So Slime Lava Kit will let your kids watch in amazement as it grows in a lava canister:

It also glows in the dark and allows you to create your own slime by combining the clear slime, glow slime, beads and glitter!

3. Personalized Family Ornaments  

Christmas ornaments stand the test of time, and a personalized Christmas family ornament adds that heartfelt touch that your kids could cherish forever. Personalized by Santa is a good place to start your search:

4. Themed Legos  

Legos are a classic kids’ Christmas gift, but themed Legos are a hit right now.   

From Batman to Disney to architecture sets, Legos allow kids to be creative without having to be in front of a screen. Also, building a Lego set could be a fun activity for the whole family!

    Mid-Sized Christmas Gift Ideas  

    Now we get to the gifts that are not quite small enough to be a stocking-stuffer but also might not be big enough to pass as the primary Christmas gift…  

    5. Winter Apparel  

    Cold-weather attire is a must in Canada, and Roots has some stylish hoodies and sweatpants to choose from:

    If you're looking for something smaller, Roots also has fashionable clothing accessories, like beanies and mittens. 

    6. Garmin Watch  

    If you looking to develop healthy habits for your child, the Garmin Watch is a great option:

    The Garmin Watch keeps track of your kids' steps, sleep and daily physical activity. It's also swim-friendly and comes with an emergency contact information widget to provide peace of mind for parents. 

    7. Tree Swing  

    Back to the backyard with our next Christmas gift idea. A tree swing is a fun way for kids to get outside and active, all while saving space in your backyard if you don’t have the room for a swing set.   

    Costco sells our Viva Active Platform Yard Swing ($55) that could be exactly what you’re looking for as an outdoor activity for your kids.

    8. Kids Subscription Box  

    If you’re looking for a Christmas gift that keeps on giving, a monthly subscription box could be perfect for you.  

    Nowadays, there are subscription boxes for almost everything: Food, books, crafting, self-care, etc.  

    Shop Local Canada did a great roundup on the different subscription boxes for kids that you can look at to spur some ideas. Subscription boxes typically cost around $10-$40+ a month.

    Primary Christmas Gift Ideas  

    Here is the main event of Christmas gifts: The gift that will make your kid run around and scream with joy. Get your cameras ready.  

    9. Swing Set  

    Swing sets are synonymous with childhood memories. If you’re looking for a backyard activity to get your kids outside and active, check out our other brand, gobaplay, formerly known as Viva Active.    

    They offer stylish, sturdily-built swing sets (sold at Costco) that just recently won a Parents’ Picks Award for Elementary Kids.

    10. Decked Out Toy Car 

    Okay, you likely remember riding in a small toy car as a kid. But do you remember driving in something like this?

    Or this?

    If your kid is a car-lover, you can have them cruising in a toy Bentley, Mercedes or Lamborghini! Just set expectations accordingly, so they’re not expecting a real one when they turn 16!  

    11. Themed Gaming Console  

    Video games are a staple of childhood for many children, and if your kids love video games, they will surely love a themed console, like the Spider-Man PS5:

    12. Ultimate Springfree Trampoline Bundle
