So, onto our roundup of the BEST LEGO GIFT IDEAS:
Klutz Lego Make Your Own Movie Activity Kit
We found this great LEGO activity book at our school book fair and we’ve had quite a bit of fun building and recording our own Stop-Motion animations. The book includes scenery, props and very helpful instructions for inspiring young movie producers!
These cute LEGO Brick storage boxes are a clever way to store your LEGO brick collection, or even just an easy way to take part of your LEGO collection with you while traveling — especially at holidays and on vacation. Having multiple-sized plastic storage brick bins are a fun way to decorate and to keep bricks off of your floor, too!
LEGO Education Wheels Set
When it comes to building with LEGO, vehicles, and cars are a staple in our home. Extra plates and wheels allow for even more fun and racing, and less fighting over who gets to use which important car bricks. This is a great value-add set for your family’s LEGO collection!
LEGO Search and Find Books
A fun twist on Search-And-Find books, explore the Ninjago world while searching for favorite characters like Samurai-Droid, finding Pizza Boy in LEGO CITY, or exploring the magical worlds of Harry Potter and Star Wars.
Customize your own Minifigure for a Personalized LEGO Search-And-Find Book
These clever personalized LEGO Search-And-Find books by Penwizard are even better than the off-the-shelf Search-And-Find books! Choose your special LEGO lover’s hair color, glasses, clothing, and facial expression. Insert their name and even a personalization message into this one-of-a-kind book. This ships from the UK, so make sure to allow enough time for production and mailing.
LEGO Minifigure LED Headlamp
I think this novel gift will be a hit with kids of all ages, but I can definitely attest to the fact that the children in our life (ages 3 to 9) wear headlamps EVERY night in their bedroom before they fall asleep and would LOVE this LEGO headlamp design.
Silicone LEGO themed trays
This 6-piece set includes molds for bricks and minifigures. Use these LEGO food molds to create LEGO-themed candles, LEGO crayons, LEGO candy, LEGO cupcakes and more! This is an affordable creative gift for the LEGO lover in your life, whether child or adult!
LEGO Classic sets are especially perfect for younger children brand-new to LEGO or for children just moving up from Duplos because the Classic sets quickly add a variety of brick color and basic bricks to any LEGO collection.
The Classic #10698 set includes many 2x4s, 2x3s, 2x6s, etc – increasing your basic brick building capabilities – while the specialty bricks like doors, windows, upper and lower slanted angles, several round bricks, 2 green baseplates, 6 wheels, and 7 eyepieces open up new creative options. The LEGO® Classic box set comes in a plastic storage bin shaped like a brick (bonus!) and includes 790 pieces.
The LEGO Classic series also has sets that come in smaller boxes that run about $5. (Think: friend’s birthday gifts or stocking stuffers!) You can purchase these smaller boxes by color, allowing you to bulk-up your child’s favorite color – like ORANGE!
Kids LEGO-Compatible Toy Block Tape
These rolls of stickable tape allow you to attach LEGO minifigures and bricks to any surface. Use on furniture, walls, other brick sets and more.
Get creative, by sticking this tape under a desk to “hang” your favorite figures or make upside-down scenes! This is an inexpensive gift that extends creative play for the brick-building enthusiast in your life. This tape is manufactured by a variety of vendors and comes in many different colors and sizes.
LEGOS for KIDS’ LAPTOPS
If your child is old enough to have their own computer, then they might love this creative decorative addition by Brik. Brick.co allows you to create pixel art on your Brick laptop case. (aka build mosaics on your laptop!)
LEGO Chess Set
At 7, our son has discovered chess. This LEGO chess set is buildable (the board and the pieces) and then has storage available to keep the built board as a functional chess board and game. You can play checkers, too.
The set is a bit pricy, but for 2-for-1, both a LEGO set and game, it seems worth it. Plus, this is one of those sets that we plan to keep for a looong time; I can see it being passed down to grandkids! As of Nov. 2019, Lego.com sells the LEGO Iconic Chess Set for about $55, while Amazon‘s price is fluctuating upwards of $99.
LEGO Brick Headz > Go Brick Me
This LEGO Brick Headz set allows you to build a Brick Head that looks like you, your best friend, family or really anyone! This set includes specially selected LEGO bricks to match a variety of hairstyles and skin tones.
LEGO Road Baseplates
Give your cars a place to zoom, race and park! Create city streets with LEGO CITY straight and crossroad base plates. The roads come in sets of 2 base plates for T-junctions, straight roads and curves. Extend your roads and even add parking lots with off-brand LEGO compatible road plates.
Arts and Bricks “Racers” Wall Stickers
These durable wall decals are designed and built with LEGO bricks. They add a creative touch to any bedroom, playroom or LEGO space.
LEGO alarm clock
Klutz LEGO Crazy Action Contraptions Craft Kit
Klutz books and products are really great; I still remember my Learn to Juggle Klutz book from the early ’90s (and yes, it did teach me to juggle!). This set gives hours of creative play for making launchers, noise-makers, gadgets, vehicles and games.
Bulk Used LEGO Bricks
One of the best gifts my son EVER received was a bulk container of my childhood LEGO bricks from the 1980’s. Grandad unpacked them from the garage and split the lot between his two grandsons for Christmas. BIG TIME WIN! (Plus, I spent several hours that day recreating sets from my childhood, because of course my Dad saved the instructions, too!)
Over the summer we were thinking we could once again use a large bulk set of LEGO bricks to replenish our collection, so we turned to EBAY. (We checked Facebook marketplace, but our area had very little options). It was a great success! Read this post if you’re wondering how many bricks are in bulk pounds.
Eat, Sleep, Build T-Shirt for Kids
We received a pair of brick sunglasses as a party favor this year. They were very cute! Of course, our kids are tough on sunglasses and kid’s sunglasses are made cheaply, so they are not going to last multiple seasons, but I think they were still worth the excitement and cute pictures.
Perfect for summer birthdays, stocking stuffers, and more. The build-on sunglasses come in a 6-pack which is actually really nice even for one or two children as when they break you’ll still have another pair!
LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Bones – Fossils
For the LEGO and dinosaur lover in your life, it doesn’t get better than this! Assemble your very own dinosaur bone exhibit featuring the fierce T-Rex, Triceratops and Pteranodon. This 910-piece set includes a paleontologist minifigure and skeleton LEGO Sapians figure. Lego recommends for ages 16+, but I’ve read several reviews that have 7-year olds building it completely by themselves.
Another similar LEGO dinosaur bone set is the discontinued LEGO Cuusoo Research Institute #21110. It is still available on Ebay, Amazon and even online from Walmart.
365 Things To Do with LEGO Bricks Book
We’ve had this book in our personal collection for about a year. It’s a very high-quality, hard-backed book with an extra flap for marking your page. The red square (shown on the bottom) is a functional activity timer and selector. Simply push the ? button and the numbers will cycle through and land on a number between 1 and 365. This is your activity selector, simply flip to that activity number and get to building.
To be honest, we’ve probably only specifically completed a dozen or so of the projects, however our son frequently flips through this book by headlamp at night in his bed. It sparks creative ideas and he just loves reading it and flipping through the pages.
Brick Activity Table
This plastic building blocks-compatible table makes a nice addition to a child’s bedroom, playroom or dedicated brick-building space in your home. A best seller on Amazon, this activity table comes in two color combinations: Red/Green/Blue/Yellow and White/Blue/Pink/Purple.
LEGO Minifigure Packs
Did you know that you can buy LEGO minifigures in packs, similar to how you buy trading cards? Single packs are great for add-on gifts! They often include unique accessories like golf clubs, guitars, hats and unique hair styles. Packs are unmarked, so it’s always a surprise what character you’ll open.
Attach minifigure packs to your gift bow and ribbon to add extra excitement about your wrapped gift. Buy several and give as a gift to friends, or use as LEGO stocking stuffers!
LEGO Cookie Cutters (5-Pack)
We recently ordered these from Lego.com as a festive addition to our cookie cutter collection. I’m thinking about using them as a stocking stuffer. Could be great for children’s LEGO themed birthday parties, too.
This buildable mech moves like a spider, each leg lifts and the crawler moves forward and backwards by the wheel on the underside. It also shoots webs from 2 stud shooters. This is one of the rare sets that is still in tact in our home, months and months later. Plus, it comes with a Spiderman minifigure – a definite crowd-pleaser.
This is by far our most expensive LEGO purchase to-date, but it’s also the most versatile and “techy” Lego set that we own. Lego Boost was created to bring the LEGO robotics and programming to children ages 7-12. The set has 5-builds and the instructions and programming happen on a free App that you access on your smartphone or tablet. The activities and programming are fun and entertain children and geeky adults!
This was a Christmas gift that captivated the cousins for multiple hours each day of the holiday (winning!). The down-side, Vernie the Robot was so loved that our son refused to take him apart to build the other designs.
Custom Wall Decal: 6-month Subscription
This is a gift that delights and encourages creativity month-after-month! My children build specifically for what they’re going to get made into stickers. Stickers can be created from children’s artwork or brick-built creations. Either way, they’re a great keepsake and make your child feel like a true artist!
BONUS: Turning your child’s brick-built creations into keepsakes frees up the physical bricks to be used and re-used, again and again!
Ninjago Stormbringer – Dragon LEGO set
In our home, when a LEGO set remains in tact for 6+ months then you know you’ve purchased a keeper. This is one such set! Stormbringer, the Ninjago blue dragon, has about 500 pieces and the coolest tail movement I’ve seen in a LEGO set. BONUS: This set can combine with your LEGO Boost to be programmed/controlled.
Design your own minifigure with MiniFigs.me
I haven’t purchased a custom-designed minifigure, yet, but this looks really cool! The minifigs.me website lets you choose your parts, images, accessories and more, and then they print directly on the minifigure and send you your customized design. Great idea for children and adult LEGO lovers alike!
Buy Custom Minifigures – even Holiday Themed Ones
There are other custom minifigure designers in the market, too. Customized after market minifigures get pretty pricy, but they are really creative!
These holiday buildable LEGO BrickHeadz Mr and Mrs Claus characters feature festive red and white outfits, detachable gift sack and assorted cake and cookie elements, also includes a buildable Christmas tree and a pile of gifts.
LEGO Water Bottles
LEGO Brick Backpack
This is a wonderfully made backpack; it’s very high quality, and washes up well. Has great front pockets for notes, snacks and school supplies. Matching lunch boxes are available, too.
Build a one-of-a-kind kid’s mug (perfect for apple cider and hot cocoa) or buy one for the kid in you! Add wings, minifigures, wheels and more! The sky is certainly the limit.
Please note: I’m disappointed that I can’t figure out which of the manufacturers for this product is the “original” as there are now many Chinese manufacturers on Amazon.
LEGO Upscaled Mug
Drink your hot cocoa, apple cider or even just morning milk in style – like Emmet – with this upscaled classic LEGO red mug.
Brick-Built Heart Wall Stickers
Bring heart to your little LEGO loving child with these cute wall stickers. Perfect for stocking stuffers, too!
Featuring your favorite LEGO man, these red, blue and yellow slippers are the perfect at home LEGO-BUILDING footwear!
