christmas gifts for under 15 dollars
Spread the love

In my post, you will find some cool Christmas gifts for kids for under 15 dollars. Some are more suitable for boys, and others are better for girls. But these gift ideas have two things in common: they are affordable with a price point of under $15 and are good quality products.

It can be quite challenging to find something that doesn’t cost the earth and, at the same time, is good quality as well.

So, here we go. Have fun exploring my gift guide. 🙂


#1 Dream Catcher Kit

dream catcher kitDream catchers are hugely popular. They supposed to help to catch bad dreams but are also a beautiful decoration for any kids bedroom.

This kit set is aimed at children eight years plus. With some help from parents, I would say it is also suitable for younger children.

I love the variety of different colors and materials like 17 assorted feathers and 49 beads plus a dream catcher hoop of course.

This beautiful dream catcher set includes an instruction manual and even a journal.

#2 Hot Wheels Gift Pack

The pack contains nine cars including one exclusive decoration car, not available anywhere else.

The cars are sturdy and high quality and will last for years to come. Great set for a great price!

Extra tip; they also make great stocking fillers. 🙂

The cube is a perfect stocking filler and great to take on a holiday, in the car or plane.

#4 Ravensburger Puzzle Dory

ravensburger puzzle doryRavensburger is known for its great quality products, and this puzzle is no exception. Bright and colorful and the right size for these little hands.

This box includes three puzzles with 49 pieces each. Even though it says on the packet suitable for ages five plus, I think it is also perfect for younger kids at around four years old.

Solving puzzles is a cool and relaxed activity for most kids. My little munchkins spend hours doing puzzles. In our household, it is more a challenge to keep the pieces in one place. 🙂

#5 A Troll Doll

So if your child loved the Troll movie, this troll doll would make a cool Christmas gift.

#7 Melissa&Doug Scratch Art Set

scratch art kit by melissa&dougIf your child loves to do creative stuff, then this deluxe combo scratch art set by Melissa&Doug might be the right present.

The set includes 16 different scratch art boards and sheets as well as two wooden stylus tools and three easel frames. I would recommend this art set for children from 8 to 12 years old.

Scratch the waxed paper with the wooden stylus tool and watch the magic happens. The artwork could be framed, and either hang up in the kid’s room or could be a present for a loved one. Have fun to get creative!

#8 Paint&Sip Ceramic Mug

The set contains six ceramic paints, a paintbrush, and instructions. The recommended age is from eight years plus.

What a fun way of getting a  hand painted, colorful mug. This kit would make a wonderful present!

 #9 Diary Of A Wimpy Kid – Cabin Fever

diary of a wimpy kid - cabin feverHow about giving a book for Christmas? The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series is just excellent. Easy to read and the kids can relate to the main character’s trials and tribulation.

Being a kid can be hard and Greg somehow manages to get himself into trouble, especially now, when  Christmas is just around the corner! Can Santa really see what Greg is up to? Does it mean, Greg won’t get any presents for Christmas?

These and many more questions will be answered in yet another entertaining book written by Jeff Kinney.

Even my 6-year-old daughter plays this game. It is fun and you have to be very quick to win the game.
