Most of us have gotten used to online shopping. It is so easy to drop something in a cart and go on with your day. But there is something about going into the shops, browsing, looking at things in person and going home with what you want immediately. I have missed going shopping in person.
Best Holiday Gifts for Kids at Orlando International Premium Outlets
We put together a list of 10 great items that we found at Orlando International Premium Outlets that we think kids would love to find under the tree this Christmas.
My son has recently gotten into basketball, and he is really into the World Cup (which surprised me), so he would love to get some sports merchandise under the Christmas Tree. All-Star Elite offers a variety of hats from different sports teams and VIP Sports has a variety of sports paraphernalia including clothes, blankets, cups and backpacks.
You’re probably thinking to yourself, no kid wants clothes as a present, but this might be the one time they will be excited to get clothes under the tree. Both of my kids are really into anime and love wearing graphic tees with their favorite characters and are always excited to get new t-shirts. If your kids are like mine and are into Naruto, Pokemon and the like, then this present might just be a winner. I found some great Graphic Tees at the Old Navy Outlet and they were at a great price.
Crocs, you either love them or hate them or in my case, my son is obsessed with them. He wears crocs all the time. He has multiple pairs and is interested in nothing else. We are going on a trip to cold weather and we even got him fuzzy crocs to keep his feet warm on the trip. If you have a Crocs lover in your life, then a pair of these under the tree will make them very happy on Christmas morning. If you or your giftee or not traditional Crocs lovers, they do also have sandals and flip flops; one of the most comfortable flip flops that I own are Crocs brand.
If you have a teen that is a bit of a sneakerhead then you will want to check out Sneaker Sicarios. They have all the latest sneaker brands and styles. I would make sure to get the exact name, color and brand before buying though, or better yet give them a gift card to the store and let them pick out their own.
You can’t go wrong with Disney merch under the tree and Disney at a discount, even better. The Disney Character Warehouse at the outlets offers a variety of Disney merchandise on sale, some at amazing discounts. They have clothes, ears, cups, stuffed animals and more. You will be able to find a few presents here, that will allow your Disney dollars to stretch even further.
Mystery Food Boxes
If you have a traveler or an adventurous eater, you will want to check out these Mystery Food Boxes at It’s Sugar. They have 4 different boxes on offer including Japan, Great Britain, Mexico and a Sanrio snack box. Both of my kids love anime and are Japanophiles, so I got them both a Japan box. I was able to look inside before purchasing and they have a variety of sweet and savory snacks and even a drink in each box.
Tip: If buying multiple boxes, look under the bottom of the box to see the month of the box, as each month has different items inside.
Jewelry and Accessories
If you have a daughter that loves Jewelry and Accessories, then stop into Claire’s to grab a variety of headbands, earrings, bracelets, necklaces and more to put together a great “build-it-yourself” present. If your daughter is a bit older and you think she is ready for more grow-up jewelry, then the Zales Outlet has some great gold jewelry options at a great price.
Both of my kids love Funko Pops. The little one has a Funko Pops tower (he keeps them in the boxes), while the older one has taken hers out of the boxes so that she can admire them more. The store Heroes and Villains at International Premium Outlets has a huge collection of Funko Pops including superheroes, anime characters, movie characters and more. You will be able to find a Funko Pop that your kid will love here. The store also offers games, character backpacks and action figures as well.
Lotions, Body Spray and Shower Gel
Tween and teen girls seem to love scented lotion, body spray and shower items and Bath and Body Works has them in spades. You can’t go wrong with a body kit or two in a scent that she likes. The lotion or body spray with glitter is always a hit.
We couldn’t finish out a list of holiday gifts for kids without including toys. Kid’s Place offers a variety of toys for kids including Squishmallows, Pokemon figures, anime characters and more.
Part of the fun for me is purchasing the holiday gifts and trying to get something that I think will make the kids’ eyes light up when they open it. If you are looking to find gifts that will make your kids’ eyes light up on Christmas Day, then you can’t go wrong shopping at Orlando International Premium Outlets. There are so many stores to choose from, with lots of great items for Christmas and beyond.
