Gifts for Big Kids {2013 Holiday Gift Guide}

This week I’m sharing my 2013 Holiday Gift Guide, with tons of ideas for everyone on your shopping list.

For the past few years, we’ve focused on group gifts for our girls — a train table and tracks, a marble run set, an indoor play house, etc. They still get plenty of individual presents from their grandparents, great-grandparents and aunts, but the group gift encourages them to play together, which I love. {This year we got them new art supplies!}

Here are some other gift ideas that would work as individual or group gifts:
