Welcome to the land of Pokémon gifts for kids!
1- Pokémon Labyrinth Game
It’s the classic family board game of Labyrinth, but with a Pokémon twist! Instead of collecting treasures inside the maze, this time players have to catch their favorite Pokémon to win. It still requires the same strategy and critical-thinking skills befitting the best Pokémon trainers. Ages 7+
2- MEGA Forest Pokémon Center Building Set
This nearly-650-piece set is a challenge to build, but when it’s done they’ll have a Pokémon center that opens to a play set and has lots of features like a rotating door or a platform to stand on that makes the figures look like they’re moving. “It had a lot of cool things you could do with it, like spin a Poké Ball around in a machine,” one 8-year-old tester said. “I liked the characters that came with it too.” Ages 8+
3- Custom Pet Pokémon Card
If they’ve always felt their pet has special abilities, you can have to get them a customized pet Pokémon card! You’ll get both a physical version to gift and a digital version, so they can post it online. You can use a photo or give it a “painted” effect, choose if you want to make it a holographic card, and even specify all the types and moves you think the pet would do (or they can figure all those details out for you, if you want).
4- Pokémon 2023 Holiday Advent Calendar
They can collect festive, two-inch figurines of their favorite characters, including Pikachu, Eevee, Jigglypuff, Rowlet and Rockruff, along with accessories to put them in a wintry, holiday scene. Some of the figures themselves are even decked out for the holidays, like Pichu in a Santa hat! They’ll have a menagerie of 16 Pokémon after every door is open, along with eight accessories. There are also advent calendars featuring the Pokémon in Funko Pop or Mega Construx forms. Ages 4+
5- Snorlax Squishmallow
For those kids (or adults?) who’ve always dreamed of resting against a snoozing Snorlax, they finally have their chance now that the ultra-collectible and super-squeezable Squishmallows plush has a Pokémon line. They come in several sizes and also other forms, like Pikachu, Togepi and Gengar, but be warned: These always sell out quickly, so snap them up if you see them. Ages 3+
6- Hanna Andersson Pokémon Holiday Pajamas
Celebrate the holidays the Pokémon way! These PJs have a holiday-inspired Pikachu print, and they’re OEKO-TEX® certified organic cotton, so they’re soft and warm. They also come as a long-sleeve baseball tee instead of PJs, or you could go with last year’s Fair Isle-inspired Pokémon print, which comes in baby sizes, kid sizes, women’s sizes, men’s sizes and even pet sizes if you want to do a family match. Sizes 2 – 16
7- Pokémon Electronic Bank
Pikachu is so mischievous! If you put a coin on the Poké Ball, the electric mouse will pop its head out of the box, pause a moment and then steal the coin by pushing it into the bank. It just can’t resist!
8- Crayola Squirtle Art Case
There are more than 75 pieces in this case designed to get their creativity flowing. They can color in their favorite characters, and then adorn their creations with Pokémon stickers. It comes with 24 crayons, 20 markers, 16 coloring pages, three character standees and more. Ages 5+
9- Electronic Die-Cast Poké Ball Replica
Hardcore Pokémon collectors will flip for this high-quality replica Poké Ball made by The Wand Company. Its metal shell is actually sensitive to proximity, and the button glows when it senses motion. It looks impressive sitting on a shelf or in a collector’s case, and it comes in other versions, like the Heal Ball or Friend Ball.
10- Pokemon Gengar Laplander Beanie
You gotta keep their brains warm if they want to keep their wits about them in the heat of battle. This hat will do the trick — or it works as a cosplay item if you pair it with a purple hoodie.
11- Pokémon Train and Play Deluxe Pikachu
This little Pikachu packs a whopping 50 unique reactions, including movements, sounds and lights, so it really feels like it’s responding to its training. It also has different reactions when you give it one of its two different berries. Ages 4+
12- Poké Ball Waffle Maker
One way to jazz up a boring breakfast? Turn waffles into Poké Balls! The outside of this waffle maker looks like a standard Poké Ball — and it makes the waffles inside look like one, too. You can also get ones that make the waffles look like Pikachu, Squirtle, Charizard or Eevee.
13- Kids’ Ash & Pikachu Digital Watch
They’ll always want to be on time when they get to wear this stylish Pokémon kids’ watch! When they press the button on the side, lights spin around the watch bezel. It’s also easy to set and read.
14- Loungefly Pokémon Double-Strap Shoulder Bag
Loungfly has a reputation of being a true fan’s backpack, and Pokémon fans are spoiled for choice when it comes to prints and designs. In addition to this one, which features tons of favorite Pokémon, you can also get bags featuring Pikachu, Umbreon, Gengar, Snorlax, Eevee, Piplup and several others.
15- Pokémon Primers: 123 Book
They can practice their numbers by counting the Pokémon in this sturdy board book, some of whom are hiding behind engaging lift-the-flaps. If this is a hit with your young trainer, you can move on to Pokémon Primers for letters, colors, shapes and more. Ages 1+

Remember, Pokémon gifts are not merely material possessions; they are gateways to exciting adventures and cherished memories. Whether it’s a plush Pikachu that becomes their trusted companion, a deck of trading cards that sparks strategic battles with friends, or a video game that transports them to captivating virtual realms, each gift holds the potential to create moments of joy, laughter, and shared experiences.
Beyond the immediate joy and entertainment, Pokémon gifts also offer valuable opportunities for learning and growth. From enhancing cognitive skills like problem-solving and critical thinking to fostering social interactions through trading and battling, Pokémon gifts provide a platform for children to develop important life skills in a fun and engaging way. Additionally, the themes of friendship, teamwork, and perseverance that permeate the Pokémon world serve as valuable lessons that can shape young minds and hearts.
Lastly, let us not forget the enduring nostalgia that Pokémon gifts can evoke. Just as those who grew up with Pokémon hold cherished memories of their own Pokémon journeys, the gifts you bestow upon the young ones today may become treasured mementos that they carry with them well into adulthood. Each Pokémon gift becomes a symbol of a special time in their lives, reminding them of the joyous moments, the friendships formed, and the dreams sparked.
So, as you embark on the quest to find the perfect Pokémon gift for a child, we encourage you to embrace the spirit of adventure, imagination, and discovery that Pokémon embodies. Allow your heart to connect with theirs as you envision the smiles, laughter, and excitement that your chosen gift will bring. And remember, the true magic lies not only in the gift itself but also in the love, care, and thoughtfulness behind it.
