If you are looking for an educational, yet fun gift check out a Snap Kit. This is a wonderful learning tool disguised as a toy. Go STEM! If you have a Lego lover, your kiddo will love this too! My boys love creating circuits with this kit. And at the time of posting these sets were 50% off. Prime members get 2 day shipping until 12/22!
Also remember that Amazon prices change unexpectedly, so check current price before purchasing (it might even be lower!)
