Celebrate Christmas and Hanukkah this year with the best holiday gifts for kids! We have cool picks for every kid (big and small) in hopes of making your lives just a little bit easier. Be warned: You might be up late "test driving" them—you know, to make sure they work and stuff. We'd also recommend a visit to local holiday markets—Bryant Park Winter Village is just one of many cool places to check out. Since, well, 'tis the season, we'd also recommend taking the festivities one step further with a visit to some of the coolest local ice-skating rinks and holiday markets, a day trip to one of these Christmas tree farms or a family movie night with one of our 20 best Christmas movies for kids.
