The Art of the Gift Kit

The holidays are fast on the way, and it’s time to reign in some budget friendly gift ideas. Today, I’m going to share some great gift kit ideas for kids. When thoughtful meets affordable, gifting becomes much more fun! These kits can be put together for about $4-$8 each! To put together a gift kit, just pick a theme and shop on!

I picked up some small containers at Family Dollar that were 2 for $1. They are also reusable, so that gives the “wrapping” more purpose which I love. These gift kits can help you stretch your dollar when you buy multi-packs and divide them among the different kits. For example, I purchased a 3-pack of Kiddy Dough for a little over $2. When divided between three gift kits, you’re really bringing down the cost. That’s a total win to me!

Now, let’s explore some gift kit ideas, shall we?

Art Gift Kit – Finding great art supplies is easy at Family Dollar. Treat the artsy kiddos in your life to a fun gift filled with items  to inspire their creativity. Fill your kit with crayons, markers, glitter pens, chalk,mini notebooks, glue or Kiddy Dough.

Princess Gift Kit – Adding a little magic is easy! With cute sets, playing cards and dolls, there is something for every princess lover. To make a more exciting  gift , you can remove the packaging from the sets before adding them, like I did above.

Activity Gift Kit – Know any kids that are bored indefinitely? I think we all know these kiddos. Put together an activity gift kit! There are plenty of small toys that will keep kids busy for hours. From mini puzzles to marbles,  “Mom, I’m bored” won’t be heard in your house.


Cupcake Gift Kit – Have little bakers on your gift list this year? Why not put together a baking kit for them? With mini pouches of cupcake mix and frosting, this is a totally cute idea. Don’t forget to grab a pack of baking cups!


Science Gift Kit – Feed the imagination of kids this holiday season with a gift kit filled with little projects. Just head to the toy section and you’ll find fun activities that inquisitive kids will just love.

Hope you found some holiday inspiration! Don’t forget to pick up your gift bows & tags at Family Dollar too! Happy Holidays!
