It seems to occur just about every year. The holidays roll along, Halloween drifts quickly into Thanksgiving, and then, before you know it, winter arrives, and it’s only a few days before Christmas.
And there are still gifts you haven’t picked out!
Not to worry – our Fundemoniacs have pitched in to come up with some great last-minute Christmas gift ideas to help speed your last-minute Christmas shopping for those favorite kids in your life.
You Can Never Go Wrong with LEGO® Sets
And, to make it even better, you can never go wrong with dinosaurs! And we have the best of both worlds with the LEGO® Jurassic World Carnotaurus Dinosaur Chase set.
Imaginations can run wild – like the posable Carnotaurus figure that is featured with this great LEGO® set. It includes a buildable helicopter and pickup truck, along with three mini-figures of popular Jurassic World characters. All three can fit in the truck, which might be needed to outrun the Carnotaurus, and the helicopter has a mini-figure cockpit.
For a different kind of LEGO action, check out the Action-loving ninja fans will be thrilled to recreate scenes from the LEGO® NINJAGO® The Keepers’ Village playset. With a prison inside a dragon’s mouth, a trap that dangles characters from a tree, and hidden shooters, this LEGO® set includes a stone pillar at the top that separates into three different monster characters.
Action and adventure await you with five mini-figures, each with ninja weapons and the challenge to win possession of the prized storm amulet.
Craft Kits for Girls and Boys of All Ages
Craft kits can run the gamut from cute and cuddly projects like the LatchKits Panda, a classic latch hook craft kit, to a set of retro, build-it-yourself paper airplanes featuring a half-dozen WWII-era fighter planes.
With a dazzling array and variety of craft kits to choose from, these make for great last-minute Christmas gift ideas for boys and girls of any age. From stained glass decorations to origami activity sets to paintable dinosaur figurines, these gift ideas are much more than mere “stocking stuffers.”
Let Your Last-Minute Christmas Gift Ideas Take Flight with Model Airplane Kits
For those kiddos on your unfinished Christmas gift list that might like a challenge a few steps above paper airplanes, there are always plastic model airplanes.
Since the first plastic model airplane kit was manufactured in the United States in 1946, a 1:48 scale Boeing Kaydet, the fascination with these wonderful kits has never ceased.
These venerable model airplane kits range from antique World War I bi-planes to stealth bombers and everything in between. And, while not technically “model airplanes,” there are even model kits of spacecraft both real and fictional (think Star Wars®) and UFOs.
For those who cannot or should not be working with glue and paint but love model airplanes, we have crew-together model kits featuring 1/72 scale modern jets with accurately reproduced airframes. These kits are fully painted and decorated and have detailed landing gear, display stands, and even a screwdriver with assembly instructions. Great for kids ages 3 and up.
Traditionally, authentic plastic model airplane kits require glue for assembly and model paint to complete the project. And we have plenty of those to choose from. A relatively easy “starter” model airplane kit is the 1:72 scale P-47M Thunderbolt, the WWII granddaddy of the modern A-10 Thunderbolt II, also known affectionately as “The Warthog.”
Last Minute Christmas Children’s Gift Basket Ideas
Okay, so you’ve got a few names still on your list, but you’re at a loss as to what to get them. Not to worry – that won’t put you off Santa’s Nice List. We’ve all been there!
An excellent idea for an alternative to a specific gift item is to create a simple children’s gift basket.
You can stuff a variety of great little gifts sure to please any kid into a basket (or sand bucket!) and make a big impression on Christmas morning. You can choose from handy toy ideas like Magnetic Take Along Jigsaw Puzzles, a variety of art and activity books, and even some games like the classic Cat’s Cradle, a huge favorite like Jenga, or maybe a new board game or two.
Throw in some decorations, Christmas candies, and wrap it all up with some nice holiday paper and a bow, and you’ve got yourself a winner with this last-minute Christmas gift idea!
