Ask a child what he or she wants as a holiday gift and you’re sure to receive a mile-long list of toys and games. While I wholeheartedly agree that there’s nothing wrong with buying from their holiday wishlists, I also believe that sometimes it’s just as nice to surprise them with things they didn’t even know they wanted. For this, Etsy comes to the rescue. For kids of all ages–toddlers to gradeschoolers–the gift ideas featured below are nearly guaranteed to never disappoint. One warning at this point, however: heed shipping dates. Handmade can take just a bit longer but it’s so worth it!
