15 Kid Gift Ideas That Have Gone Postal!

Lately, my four-year-old son Oscar is obsessed with mail. He loves it all: the letter writing, mail carriers, the post office, stamps!  Today I asked him to help me make a dream list of post office themed gifts for Christmas. I was shocked by how many adorable ideas we found!









Check out the list and tell me what I missed! I’m certainly not going to get everything, but I might get a few of his favorites. Which ones do you like the best?

  • Postal Worker Paper Doll 1 of 15
    Postal Worker Paper Doll
    I'll start with my favorite! Seeing Oscar's face as a super hero mailman cracks me up. I love everything about this present. It's magnetic. It's got style. It's funny. Perfect gift!

    A Basic! This costume is a must!

  • M is For Mailman Flashcard 3 of 15
    M is For Mailman Flashcard
    I think this would look great framed. Bonus: It's letter pressed! I'm sure Oscar won't appreciate that detail but I do!
    Buy this flashcard on Etsy
  • Mailbox 4 of 15
    I love big impact toys like this under the Christmas tree. Oscar would flip out if Santa brought it!
    Buy this at Amazon
  • Mail Bird Stamp 5 of 15

    How sweet is this little owl? I might steal from Oscar!

  • The Jolly Postman 6 of 15
    The Jolly Postman
    There are a lot of nonfiction books about post offices, but nothing stood out to me. Do you know of one? This fiction book, however, looks really fun to read. Every other page has a letter that kids can pull out of an envelope and read. Such a creative concept!
    Buy this book at Amazon
  • Various Box and Tape Set 7 of 15
    Various Box and Tape Set
    I love that this seller puts custom packages together for her buyers! Oscar was really excited when I showed him all his options!

  • Real Stamps 8 of 15
    Real Stamps
    I thought it would be fun to give him a set of real stamps to mail letters to relatives across the country. He's asked to do this a few times, but I never know where my stamps are located! Sorry cousins in Florida!
    Buy stamps at The Postal Store
  • A Lot of Post Cards 9 of 15
    A Lot of Post Cards
    I thought it would be fun for Oscar to play with used postcards. The great thing about this lot is that some of the postcards have real stamped letters and others are blank. He could write his own!

    I love the size of these trucks. Perfect to fit in his hands and zoom down the hallway!

  • Mail Bag: An Essenial 13 of 15

    This is on the top of Oscar's list. He told me he loves it because it will make him feel like a real mail carrier. I love that it's handmade!

    Isn't she cute? I was super excited when I found this puppet. My kids adore puppets! Do yours?

  • A Real Mailbox 15 of 15
    A Real Mailbox
    I showed Oscar homemade mailboxes on Etsy made out of felt. They were adorable! But he said, "No! I don't want a soft mailbox! I want a real one!" Good idea!
