Perfect not only for Christmas time, but also great choices for birthday gifts and other special occasions, we’ve got the lowdown on the top gifts kids are clamoring for this year, and we’re about to let you in on the secret!

Dress up TrunkWhen children want to let their imagination take over and help them become something different, a dress-up trunk provides the perfect opportunity to let the inner diva come out and play. For a dress-up trunk that will keep the little ones entertained for hours, check out this personalized dress up trunk for children aged three and up.

For the child who loves purple and prefers polka dots, a piece of rolling luggage with white dots on a purple background is the perfect present. This is a gift that can be used as a rolling backpack or a fun travel bag, featuring three large zippered pockets for easy access to papers or personal items. Made from sturdy, double-stitched polyester with a telescoping handle and strong plastic wheels for easy rolling, this 23” tall rolling luggage can be personalized for that special child.

Travel LuggageThe child who loves sharks will be thrilled with an 18” piece of rolling luggage featuring the likeness of a shark on the face of the luggage, on a bold blue background decorated in a shark theme. Personalize the coordinating green pocket trimmed in blue and your child will be thrilled to call this scary-cool rolling shark luggage their own.

The doll collector will get a kick out of a doll that comes with eight outfits and her own personalized pink travel trunk for keeping it all together. This trunkful of fashion fun will keep kids busy changing the outfits for this adorable 7” tall doll, putting her down for a nap with her sleeping bag and pillow, or brushing and styling her hair.

Speaking of sleeping bags, kids love our personalized unicorn sleeping bag and cool trucks sleeping bag, perfect for sleepovers with friends, camping in the backyard, a weekend trip to grandma’s house, or building a fort in the living room. Thick and plump with comfort, these sleeping bags are made to last. A full-length zipper means these quality sleeping bags are easy to enjoy, and the cool designs will keep your kids smiling all the way to dreamland.

Mermaids and beach waves and sharks, oh, my! Who says beach towels are just for the beach? Kids everywhere Beach towellove these colorful, luxurious, high-quality personalized beach towels made of 100% absorbent cotton and featuring mermaids and sharks for a day at the beach or for wrapping up in after a bath.

Is there an aspiring equestrian in your midst? A personalized take-along show horse stable will delight and amaze with stable doors that swing open so eight toy horses can come out to play. A comfortable handle attached to the stable roof makes for easy carrying to the next big horse show.
