3 Year old Gift Ideas

At age 3 children's interests and personality really start to shine through.  If you are looking for gifts that are appropriate for children aged 3 take a look at this list.

  • Dress up box.  You could buy a special ready made outfit such as a superhero and give that as a gift. But I prefer to get a box and fill it with an eclectic mix of clothes, scarves, hats and jewelry that the child can use in what ever silly way he or she likes. A set of fairy wings and a pirate hat always be well used. 
  • A toy phone, 3 year olds love talking on the phone.
  • Simple board games such as dominos, memory or Jenga would be good.
  • Tricycles or balance bikes
  • Puzzles
  • Simple musical instruments
  • A tea set, 3 year olds love to create tea parties. 
  • Balls, choose a large ball that is easy to grip and catch
  • Books are great at all ages.  Around 3 years of age children will enjoy imaginative stories. Think about traditional stories such as The 3 Little Pigs, Goldilocks and The 3 Bears and Jack and the Beanstalk. Children enjoy reading these stories over and over again and will also love to act the story out as a play.
  • Set of textas or crayons is a great gift for 3 year olds.  You could also make a craft box and include glue, safety scissors and a range of crafty items to cut and stick eg glitter, colored paper, cellophane, wool, pipe cleaners, paddle pop sticks and anything else you can find.
  • Personalized name stickers and fabric labels ready to label his or her belongings for preschool.
  • New set of sheets for their bed if they are still in a cot.
  • A small back pack in preparation for preschool

For the girls

  • Pretend hair dressing set with brush, comb, rollers and hairdryer
  • Dolls, doll pram or high chair for the doll
  • Jewelry box and pretend jewelry, girls love dressing up with necklaces and bangles

For the boys

  • Train set
