I was provided with products from LEGO®, Learning Resources, Educational Insights, and Gymboree for this post.
Adults can be tough to shop for during the holidays…but I’ve also found it to be true for kids, too. I’m not sure if it’s the teacher in me or the mom who doesn’t want a ton of clutter, but I always try to find gifts that are not only fun, but a little educational, too.
So I put together a gift guide with a preschool boy in mind (any guesses as to who helped me with all of these awesome present ideas?) but all of these gift ideas are perfect for a range of ages, boy or girl!
LEGO® sets are the toys that will never go out of style. And with all of the different themes, colors, and set sizes, you are sure to find something for your LEGO® enthusiast.

Grab your hard hat and get to work on the LEGO® City construction site, featuring Easy to Build vehicles including a dump truck, digger with rotating back arm, and a demolition crane with wrecking ball, plus a building under construction.
Some other great ideas for your little LEGO® lover:
Anything construction is huge in our house, whether it’s tools, pretend building sites, or construction vehicles big and small!
Design & Drill® Activity Center
Kids power up their imaginations and build coordination and creative thinking skills as they drill chunky, child-sized components into a sturdy activity board. Children love following the colorful activity cards to create pictures and patterns—from trains and boats to flowers and fish. Young builders can drill their very own designs! Just snap any one of the drill bits into the power drill or the screwdriver handle, grab a handful of bolts, and turn on the learning fun!

This fair isle trucks printed pajama set is sure to be a hit with your truck-loving kiddo! Gymboree makes clothes that let kids be kids. One-of-a-kind styles that can tumble on the playground, twirl at family parties and stick around long enough to be handed down.
