Birthday Gift Guide for all ages

Don’t spend another moment trying to think of the perfect birthday present. As soon as you get that party invitation, head straight to this list of birthday gifts by age—it’s guaranteed to please!

Do you have any home-run gift ideas to share? Leave a comment! I’ve had great luck with these electronic piggy banks and Bluetooth karaoke microphones. For little ones, I love Pantone: Colors. It’s a great way to show that there are many different shades of each color (a difficult concept when you think about it!).

Whitney is originally from central Illinois but moved to Texas for love. After enjoying being a single twenty-something in Dallas, she settled down in 2010 and married her college sweetheart (the guy who got her here). She has two sons and a daughter. Whitney works for a major retailer in digital marketing creative, where she has been since 2009. She loves Dallas—the amazing friends she has met here, the Tex Mex, the bluebonnets, the arts and culture, the mild winters, and having lots of family, including her in-laws, one of her sisters, and her favorite uncle, nearby. Her passions include reading, sports, (daydreaming about) traveling, and spending time with friends and family.
