If you’re still looking for some last minute gift ideas for kids, you’re pretty much down to the wire. Yes, even with more than a week remaining before Christmas, many stores sold out of the most popular gift ideas awhile back.
Fortunately, I’ve got a list of gift ideas for kids – 10 things you can still buy that cover a wide range of interests. Plus, some of these items are also offering special discounts for a limited time, including Gymboree, where everything costs $14.99 or less and ships for free, and Little Passports, where you can save 15% off a subscription.

Kids love getting boxes addressed directly to them, and with Little Passports, they’ll receive an age-appropriate, educational and fun box every month. You can buy subscriptions paid monthly, for six months or for a whole year.
Monthly subscriptions start at $15.95 plus $3 shipping, and for a limited time, you can save 15% off any subscription with Little Passports coupon code JOLLY.

For kids who show an interest in science and/or collecting, consider looking into rock collecting as a possible hobby. You can easily set up a kid for embarking on an enjoyable and educational rock collecting hobby.

Kids who build a lot of creations with LEGO blocks may become frustrated with trying to keep track of the various sizes of LEGOs. Box4Blox offers a solution with their LEGO sorter, which kind of works like a coin sorter for LEGO blocks.
Two fantastic family movies are available now on home video – Inside Out and the Minions movie. I enjoyed both of these films, and Minions have been wildly popular with kids since their debut in the first Despicable Me movie. The cute little yellow characters with their unique language and well-intentioned bumbling easily carry their own movie.
