25 Handmade Toys for Gift Giving - perfect for kids Christmas Gifts, Kids Birthday Gifts and more!

When it comes to gift giving, we want our gifts to come across as thoughtful, tasteful, and never run of the mill.  Gift giving can become stressful when you get stumped! Things don’t need to get stressful or even expensive when it comes to gifts for kids.

I love giving and receiving handmade gifts.  As a child I received many handmade toys over the years – I was definitely spoiled!  My girls are benefiting from the handmade toys I received as a kid – plenty of dolls, a pair of doll cradles my dad had made for my sister and I, a soft baby grab ball and more. 

That is what is so wonderful about handmade toys, they are meant to be tucked away when your kids outgrow them and save them for a day when they have their own children.  How wonderful!
