Great Holiday Gifts for Coworkers With Kids

Is your office having a holiday party for the kiddos? Did you decide to exchange gifts with the focus on the little ones this year? Whatever the case, we are here to help you choose great holiday gifts for coworkers with kids. Choosing the perfect gift can be tricky when you don’t know if your coworker has a boy or girl or if the party is a Secret Santa occasion, where gifts are randomly exchanged. That’s why we made sure to include in the list toys that would make boys and girls equally happy.


Even the kids who find reading hard and challenging, coworkers with kids will enjoy a book with fun poems, like “Llama llama and the bully goat”. This great book is part of a series by Anna Dewdney, in which Llama llama helps kids deal with everyday challenges. If you are looking for gift ideas for coworkers who have creative kids, you can choose a coloring book, like “Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book”. The ink illustrations of Johanna Basford are a work of art on their own and the book will become even more unique with the creative addition of the little ones.


Wooden Toys

Wooden toys are not only environmental friendly, they are also suitable for many different age groups. And when they are well-made, they are great décor for the kids room shelves as well. Melissa & Doug offer a great variety of wooden toys, ranging from cars and tool kits to wooden food sets.


Building Toys

For the future architect or construction manager, Lincoln logs are the fun way to get started. They offer hours of fun and allow for different combinations of the logs included, meaning the kids will never get tired of them. Of course Lego Bricks are another all time classic and if you are looking for gift ideas for coworkers who like to play with their kids, they will sure appreciate them. Building kits are a nice way for the whole family to spend time together. They just have to be careful not to step on a lego!


Dollhouses, castles and spaceships

The offspring of coworkers with kids  love to play with little figurines that inhabit colorful places. Fisher-Price has something for every taste. The little people happy sounds home toy is a three-level house with the Little People included, that can be enjoyed by kids from three up to 10 years old. The Little People Play n’ Go Castle is ideal to take at play-dates and trips. And for the little ones who like more surreal environments, the Octonauts Octopod play set is the perfect choice.


Board Games

Board games are a great gift for coworkers with kids with more than one kid, as they can all play with it, instead of fighting about it. The Educational Insights The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel Game is a great game for preschoolers that helps develop hand-eye coordination, pre-handwriting skills and sorting, among others. Sequence is a board game that will be easy enough for your kids to play and interesting enough for you, to play with them.

Other Ideas

If you know a bit more about your colleague’s kid, you can safely pick a toy that they will like. Sticker collections are appreciate by kids that like scrap booking. Easy Bake is loved by boys and girls who want to be chefs. Balance games, like Suspend, are fun for many players of many ages. So depending on your coworker’s family composition, you can make the perfect choice!
