7-Year-Old Gift Ideas: Best Gifts for Seven Year Olds

At seven years old, kids are starting to understand more and develop their tastes and interests, and the gifts you get them should definitely reflect that growth.

They’re at that age where they still appreciate a fun, playful gift but can also appreciate presents that speak to their developing comprehension, like books or art supplies.

Seven-year-olds can also participate more in group activities like board games or video games, which is a great opportunity for them to learn how to play with their older siblings or share toys with friends!

We’ll be taking a look at the best gift ideas for seven-year-old boys, girls, and both.

Many of my recommendations from previous gift guides will make wonderful gifts at this age as well so I highly recommend checking out all of my gift guides for each age to see the best toys for each age group and to find that perfect toy for the little boy or girl on your list:

I take my gift guides very seriously. I know we all have seen the generic gift guides floating around every year and it’s important to me to only suggest items that I have personal experience with and truly recommend.

Gender Neutral Gift Ideas for 7-Year-Olds

As kids get older they begin to learn about their own individual, unique interests. Many activities at this age can be enjoyed by both girls and boys. Seven is also a great age for spending time with peers and siblings.

It is considered the golden age of childhood and when each of my children have been seven they’ve really been the easiest to parent and I’ve seen the best bonding between them with their siblings.

Osmo Genius Starter Kit for iPad

This is a really neat gift for seven-year-olds who love puzzles. You plug your iPad into it and play games designed to build their math and science skills.

Perfect for your future scientist! My kids LOVE Osmo kits and they’ve been a great way to incorporate learning into screen time.

Stomp Rocket Dueling Rockets

It’s fun and it’s also science. The Dueling Rockets are a fun outdoor game where you see who can make their rocket go the highest! Seven-year-olds can enjoy this one with their friends or siblings.

Outdoor Tree Swing

Seven-year-olds love swings and this awesome outdoor tree swing is sure to make them smile! More than one child can fit on it, so they can have fun swinging with their friends.

We easily added this in place of a swing on our swing set and it has allowed for a nice variety in our backyard and kids play outside more frequently because they are eager to swing!

Roald Dahl Collection 16 Books Box Set

For the seven-year-old who really loves stories, this Roald Dahl collection is perfect! It has all your favorite classics: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The BFG, Matilda, and more!

This is an excellent age to really start focusing on chapter books. And Roald Dahl is a fun writer to read aloud so these books are wonderful for you to read out loud to your child to help encourage their love of reading and confidence in their newer reading skills while also having quality time together.

An added bonus is that many of the books have a movie to watch as a family movie night after you finish the book! This is a wonderful gift idea for birthday gifts or even a Christmas gift that can be enjoyed together and allow for creating memories as a family too.

Fantastic Mr. Fox

Out of all the Roald Dahl books this is my personal favorite AND the movie to go along with it, in my opinion, is the best! If you’re considering a first chapter book I think this is a great option. Bust out the remote control to then watch the movie together – it’s one the entire family will enjoy!

Nintendo Switch

In second grade, a lot of kids start to get interested in video games. And because it’s both handheld and has TV hookup, the Nintendo Switch is a great console for the whole family!
