My boys (8 and 7) are LEGO-obsessed. They love putting together sets and they love creating their own “worlds” using LEGOs. I love that they are building, playing together, and not playing video games. :)
The LEGO boxed sets can get rather expensive (and can limit creativity with LEGOs) so I thought I might share some suggestions on other LEGO-inspired gifts.
1. Awesome LEGO Creations with Bricks You Already Have by Sarah Dees
We love this book! It includes a great blend of projects with step-by-step instructions along with other open-ended ideas intended to inspire individual creativity. The photos in the book are gorgeous and I myself enjoy flipping through to look at all the pictures.
This LEGO box goes hand-in-hand with the Awesome LEGO Creations book and is an excellent set for encouraging creative building.
Once you have the bricks and the ideas to start building, you need a place to store and build! This LEGO table is perfect for encouraging your little builders and the step-by-step tutorial makes it super easy.
We just ordered these for my boys to put in their stockings. The writing utensils each have a way for LEGOs to be attached and the ruler can be built using LEGO bricks!
Although not an official LEGO brand product, this silicone baseplate is awesome! It can be rolled up for travel and folded to make more interesting structures.
This LEGO Head Lamp is just the cutest…great for reading in the dark, camping, or sleepovers!
These reusable stickers are super fun for adding to your LEGO creations to jazz them up a bit!
Your little LEGO lover will enjoy using these brick-shaped utensils at mealtimes!
These are the cutest LEGO Minifigures yet! Each package comes with 1 random minifigure…unfortunately you can’t choose the one you want ahead of time. We got lucky and got Mickey at the LegoLand store about a month ago and it is our current favorite!
Both of my boys received LEGO travel cases very similar to these last year for Christmas. Theirs have a drawer that you pull out but it doesn’t have the divided compartments like this one. I couldn’t find the ones they have, so I thought I would share this as another option.
What is your best LEGO Gift Idea???
