It’s all exciting when you’re seven — and that takes off some of the present-buying pressure.

7 Year Old Gift Guide

Many seven-year-olds are really into a topic — like space or unicorns or dinosaurs or magic. Like, reeeeally into it… really really. Grab a gift in their favorite deep-dive category? You’re golden. But good news: Seven-year-olds are also generally pretty pumped about, well, everything. So it’s hard to mess up when picking a present—especially if you go with giggle-inducing gifts like these.

Grow Alien

Educational gifts are great and all, but won’t your kid be over-the-moon for one that just… isn’t? Okay! So that begs the follow-up question: What do you get for the space-lover who has everything (read: every puzzle, helmet, telescope, projector, book)? An alien, of course! Submerge the egg in cool water, then watch as your extraterrestrial comes out of his/her shell over the next few days.

Hog Wild White Unicorn Popper

Unicorns, yay! Rainbows, yay! Unicorns AND rainbows?? We’re not blowing smoke! This horned horse shoots foam balls as far as 20 feet. And it’s sure to be your seven-year-old’s new main squeeze.

Treasure X Dino Dissection

Calling all archeologists! Paleontologists! Treasure hunters! If your seven-year-old has a T-rex-sized appetite for Jurassic-themed fun, and a penchant for slime, this kit allows for all sorts of discovery. Ya’ dig it?

LEGO Classic Creative Brick Box

No templates, no instructions, no limitations. Just a LEGO lover’s free rein. The 484 pieces in this set come inside a giant LEGO brick in a sort of LEGO-Inception, with 35 different colors to fuel your vivid imagination.

Klutz Jr. My Simple Sewing

This sewing kit includes a book filled with sew many ideas. Plus, the pre-cut and pre-punched felt patterns — a pizza pouch, cookie keychain, and a cupcake plush toy — make the projects sew deliciously simple! Sewing may be a useful life skill for anyone who, well, wears shirts. But sew what? When it comes down to it, it’s just sew fun.

Open the Joy Magic Kit

Presents from people you love are always magical, but they’re especially magical when the gift is — drum roll please — a magic set. If your child is interested in abracadabbling in hocus-pocusry, there’s really no trick to finding the perfect gift. Just wave a wand and POOF! This is it. Your budding magician will be so im-presto.

Modern Sprout Pizza Garden Seed Ball Kit

Don’t you know pizza doesn’t grow on trees? But it does grow on seed balls, or at least, its ingredients do. This mini kid-friendly pizza garden kit comes with seeds for ingredients like tomatoes, basil, arugula, and oregano. And it’s sure to be a hit no matter how you slice it.

Throw Throw Burrito

It's a card game, it's a food fight, it's your family's new favorite for game night! Grab the squad, and challenge them to a friendly game where the objective is to collect matching sets of cards. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, heads up – you'll be ducking and dodging flying burritos as you race to rack up the points! Silly, active fun, and probably the only dodgecall cardgame in existance.

Tulip Rainbow 5-Color Tie-Dye Kit

Tie-dye day at camp is a total fan favorite, but why wait? Let’s twist again like we did last summer… right now! The arts and crafts cabin can be open year-round with five bright colors and easy-squeezy bottles. And think outside the t-shirt: pillowcases, socks, headbands… they’re all dying to be dyed, too. Rubber bands are included, but a jam band playlist isn’t.

Pokemon Pikachu Sun-staches

Do your kids want their Pokemon obsession to be totally glaringly obvious? Let’s face it: They’ll shine in these “sunstaches.” A little bit Pikachu, a little bit rock n’ roll, they’re like a reverse holo ultra-rare GX card… but better! (Probably?)
