Preschoolers are a lot of fun to buy gifts for. They love anything new! These great preschooler gifts under 15 dollars are perfect for both boys and girls.
I try to balance buying cheap trinkets with items that will last a little longer. The gifts below make great stocking stuffers or gifts when you need a little something to bring to a home with small children.
Side note: have you noticed how big Christmas stockings have .gotten?! It takes a lot more stuff to fill those up these days!

Cori, I love all of these suggestions! While my kids are currently 12 and 14, we still have plenty of toddlers and preschoolers that we buy gifts for throughout the year. The little owl nightlight is adorable and I love the little jigsaw puzzles in a box. I love all of these suggestions – so affordable but not the typical “junk” that we so often default to when we’re feeling frazzled and out of ideas. Thanks for these great suggestions!
