Christmas Gift Ideas Under $20 For Kids

Wii Nunchuk Controller

This goes with the Wii games that support nunchuk use, fitting into the hand that isn't performing the main action in the game. Nunchuks are those things that Ninjas use, you know - those sticks with chains in the middle that I'd kill myself with if I ever tried to use them. It plugs into the bottom of the Wii remote via a cable that is 2 1/2 ft. long. It has 2 trigger buttons and a joystick. No batteries required.

More Wii for Under $20

Wii Grand Slam Sports Pack

The Wii controller fits into the handle of these pieces. Actually, these pieces all share the same handle - one at time, of course. When you want to change sports, you unscrew the one you're using and screw on the new one. The set includes a tennis racket, a baseball bat, golf club and sterring wheel. Apparently, the controller needs to be removed during pitching when baseball is being used. The tennis racket light fixture requires two AA batteries.

Set the Mood

Anyone on your list would love this jewel tone 5pc tea light candle tray. It's great to use as a centerpiece for home or office. This attractive candle set adds a calm and relaxing ambiance to any environment. Product includes 5 glass votive holders, 5 tea light candles, river rocks, and a wooden candle tray. The votives come in an array of colors to match any décor.

Give the Kids an Old Fashioned, Non-Electronic Game for Christmas

  • Jenga - Ages 6 & Up - Stack the blocks and have each player take a turn removing one until the tower falls down. Unlike puzzles, this game isn't ruined if a piece is lost. Fun for adults, as well as kids. Comes in a sturdy canister for storage.

  • Twister - Ages 6 - 99 - Who doesn't love Twister?? It's good exercise and tons of fun! Grandmas and Grandpas will remember playing Twister in their younger days, so it’s a great game to involve the entire family in over Christmas.

Box DVD Christmas Set

Christmas Movie Fun for Kids

New Christmas Classics Gift Set

There are 4 holiday movies for your little ones in this boxed set. That's 284 minutes on 2 DVD's. Full screen display features Casper, George of the Jungle, Fat Albert and Gumby. Not rated. Starting at only 55 cents! This one fits in everyone’s budget and makes a terrific stocking stuffer.

Barbie Does a Christmas Carol

Barbie in a Christmas Carol

Every little girl will love this one. Barbie stars in this adaptation of the traditional Charles Dickens' story. Fashion, laughs and singing - this movie has it all! As best as I can figure out, Ken does not have a role in Barbie's screen debut. It's just 60 animated minutes of the beautiful Mattel model, a cat and three Christmas spirits.

Kids and Adults Alike Love Shrek

Shrek for Under $20

Shrek the Halls

The beloved ogre returns to the screen with the usual cast of loveable characters to celebrate the Christmas season. Shrek extends his typical heart-warming wishes, "Smelly Christmas to all and to all a gross night."

Kids and adults alike love Shrek! This movie features 22 seasonal minutes of run time.

Christmas Gifts for Her

Ladies Watches

Unless you already bought her one recently, you just can't go wrong with a nice looking watch. They're functional and pretty. Watches are typically gift-boxed for giving and come with a warranty or guarantee.  Not only that, they come in a myriad of colour ways and styles.

A watch is a pretty good gift for the $20 range.

Warm, Cozy Scarves

Have you ever felt a 100% pure Pashmina scarf? Me either, but I'd sure like to. Amazon describes these 72" x 26" beauties thusly:

"Fine wool from the undercoat of Himilayan mountain goat, raised by semi-nomadic herders. Luxurious rarity; incomparable softness, warmth and durability; extremely lightweight."

You can see why I didn't bother to paraphrase. I was too busy drooling.

These scarves come in a variety of colours and get softer the more they're worn. She will lo-ove you for this!

Christmas Gifts for Him

These knives are from Victorinox, which I can tell you from being in the promotional products industry, is THE best brand.

Numerous sturdy little hand tools hide away in the swiss built body.

Victorinox knives come boxed for easy wrapping and have a lifetime warranty. You can get this little beauty for less than $20.

V-Neck Sweater for Him - $19.99. Really.

Keep Him Warm This Christmas

Yes, yes, I know. You're holding your heart and gasping because it says this mens v-neck sweater is $60. Now, would I do that to you? Nope. Go ahead and click on picture. It'll take you to the Amazon page where it is selling for only $19.99, plus free shipping if you order $35 or more of goods.

You don't have to tell the lucky recipient of this gift how little you got it for but you'll know you came in under budget with this item.

Feel better?

Great Christmas Gift for a Boyfriend, Brother, Dad, etc.

He'll love this Axe shower detailer. The mesh side helps to clean the sensitive, delicate areas, while the other side takes care of scrubbing the tougher places. This is meant to be used with liquid soap only and provides a great lathering clean. Axe body wash is available in drug stores, etc., so it's really easy to keep your guy well stocked with his favourite fragrance. N.B. Pick one you like the smell of, too. :-)

Hope This Helps

Hopefully, this hub will save you some time and money. I know that it took me hours to find all these items.

These products are all from Amazon as you can see, but that will save you even more time. Shopping online for your Christmas gifts means not having to go to crowded stores or try to find a parking spot. Heck, some gifts can be shipped gift wrapped.

If I spot more things that I think might go well here, I'll add it.

Happy Shopping & Merry Christmas!
