When you are looking for gift ideas for kids of all ages, it is super helpful to have some idea of their favorite things. Often times, people will say things like "I'd be happy with anything!" when you ask them what they want for Christmas.
Nice, but not incredibly helpful.
So guiding people in making their perfect list is a smart way to make YOUR life a little bit easier this time of year.
How Do You Make a Christmas Wish List?
Some families have a Christmas tradition with gift giving, a Christmas theme for gifts, a gift rule of only a certain number of presents each year, price limit, etc. All of these things should be taken into consideration when creating a wish list.
But, here are some tips for making a wish list:
1. First and foremost, be specific with your wishes. The more specific you are, the easier it will be for others to buy Christmas gifts you will love. It is a good idea to write down a website or provide a link to an item family can easily locate.
2. Don’t be afraid to dream big – after all, a wish list is all about what you want, so go for it!
3. BUT, try to be realistic with your wishes; while it’s fine to include some items that may be a stretch, if everything on your list is completely unattainable then it defeats the purpose.
4. Consider who you're making the list for.
5. Finally, don't forget to have fun with it! Make your list as creative and festive as possible.
A fun way to get motivated to create a list is to play some Christmas music or make some Christmas cookies or hot cocoa. That will definitely get you in the Christmas spirit.
While Christmas lists are fantastic, different ages might require different guidance when sharing their Christmas wishes.
Let's discuss a few.
Younger kids need a bit more help when coming up with a list of gifts and toys they want. Mom or Dad (and grandparents) likely have a pretty good idea of their interests and can help guide them with their dear Santa letters.
They can color the Santa template with crayons or markers to personalize it! But, the templates will make life a little easier for busy moms!

Older kids will likely want to make their list without a lot of direction from others. But, they might also be a bit more picky about brands and getting the specific item they want.
Want Need Wear Read Gift List
So be sure to have this age group write down as much detail as possible. Teens (or tween) can use inspiration from TikTok, Instagram, etc. to give them more ideas.
Even your favorite person, the one you thought you knew EVERYTHING about, may have a Santa wish list with unexpected items that surprise you.

How Many Items Should Be on a Wish List?
When it comes to gift giving, how many items should be on a wishlist? This is a great question and one that doesn't have a definitive answer.
However, here are a few things to consider when making your own wish list.
Think about who you are making the list for. If it's for someone close to you like a spouse or child, then you can probably get away with a longer list. They know your likes and dislikes and can probably guess what you might want.
However, if the list is for someone less close to you, like a friend or coworker, then you might want to stick to a shorter list. You don't want to overwhelm them with too many options.

Think about what you really want or need. If there's something you've been wanting for a while, put it on the list!
