With the holidays swiftly approaching, I am so ready to start making my list and checking it twice! With seven nieces and nephews in my brood of little ones, coming up with the perfect little things to buy them is always one of my favorite parts of the holidays. I personally love somewhat old-school, timeless gifts for kids. Gifts that ignite the imagination and invite them to engage in a game of house or make believe. Gifts that can become keepsakes and are treasured for years to come. Have a gaggle of kiddos deserving of something special this holiday season? Here are my picks for holiday gifts for kids under $50!
