Mommyish Gift Guide: Top 12 Gifts For That Kid You Don’t Know Well

It always happens. There’s one child that you barely know anything about, but you suddenly have to buy a gift for. It’s a cousin’s child that lives in another state. It’s a dance class Secret Santa with a kid that you couldn’t pick out of a line-up. It’s your friend’s child that you don’t see very often and who is somewhere between the ages of six and ten.

Every year, these kids languish at the bottom of our shopping lists. We have no idea what they like. We have no clue what to buy them. Gift cards aren’t appropriate for kids, so you can’t fall back on your go-to generic present.

Well don’t worry. Mommyish to the rescue. We have a great selection of toys that every child will love. These aren’t too expensive, since we figure you don’t want to spend a fortune on a child you aren’t too familiar with. They’re just enjoyable, easy toys that will make you a hit with any kid.

      Thank you – I never know what kids want now. But two questions
      1. What the heck does a Bop it do? and
      2. Do I really have to give that fire engine away? :)
