10 Big Christmas Gifts for Kids—Up to 58% Off

There is some debate on social media about who the “big” Christmas gifts should come from—one school of thought says that big-ticket items should come from Santa, while others argue that more expensive presents should always come from parents. No matter which side of the festive fence you are on, we’ve rounded up some big-ticket gifts that can be delivered by December 25—and to make your holidays even brighter, they’re all on sale. 

Make dreams come true with a Barbie dreamhouse on sale for $50 off, a light-up Paw Patrol tower, or a Nintendo Switch bundle that’s $60 off. Or, spark imaginations with toys that encourage creative play, like a Melissa & Doug Sweets and Snacks food cart that’s 45% off or a discounted indoor play tent complete with fairy lights. No matter what tickles your kid’s fancy, these big-ticket gift deals are sure to have their eyes sparkling come Christmas morning.

A Barbie Dreamhouse is a classic big-ticket holiday gift that’s sure to light up any child’s eyes when they see it wrapped under the tree. Plus, it’s an open-ended toy that can promote creativity and play in kids of many different ages, so it’s a present parents can feel give about their kids receiving as well. Right now, the 2023 Dreamhouse is $50 off at Walmart—a.k.a its lowest price ever.

Along with classic Barbie details and pink coloring, this toy has a slide, a pool, and a special sleepover-ready bonus room. It comes with over 75 accessories, a wheelchair-accessible elevator, working lights and sounds, an outdoor swing, and outdoor details like a palm tree. Shoppers approve of it, too, reporting that it’s “simple” to set up and that their kids “love” the house and its accessories.

Long winter days and nights with kids cooped inside can be anything but magical, so picking up an affordable indoor playhouse they can entertain themselves in is a gift that keeps on giving. Standing 53 inches high and 35 inches wide, this easy-to-assemble tent has a “door panel” that opens up to reveal cozy space that invites play time, reading time, or a rest. 

The tent comes with a small padded mat for kids to relax on, though it will also accommodate most crib mattresses if you wish to add your own touch. And for even more magic, the tent comes with a string of LED fairy lights.

If you’re not a regular mom but a cool mom, you may want to add the Stairslide to your cart while it’s on sale. This kit comes with four different pieces that will span nine to 12 stairs on a staircase, forming a “slide” kids can go down. Each slide part is made of impact-resistant ABS plastic and has a 13-inch seat. According to the manufacturers, the Stairslide is self-anchoring, meaning that it can be easily installed directly on the stairs without any additional tools or pieces—and folded away when the kids are done sliding. 

You can also customize how “intense” the slide is by angling the pieces to create a more steep slide or keep things at a slower pace. We recommend adding a helmet for added safety while playing.

To buy: Stairslide Original Indoor Stair Playset $250 (was $400);
