Birthday Gift Guide for Ages 3 to 13

If you’re a parent or relative of children age 3 to 13, then you have birthdays to attend. It can be almost every weekend sometimes! Finding the appropriate gift can be time-consuming and a bit stressful – whether it’s coming directly from you or from your child.

Never fear! Here is a gift guide to help you focus on enjoying time with loved ones (and getting on with your day!) rather than hemming and hawing over all the options. While summer birthdays have been top of my mind (especially my daughter’s half birthday party celebration), the gift guide is appropriate for any time of year. Feel free to bookmark this page as a gift that keeps on giving to you.

Gifts are organized by age group from preschooler to teen, and all of them are under $40 US! Happy gifting!
