20 Kid-Friendly Gifts for Your Ring Bearer
Whether you're shopping for a holiday present or a thank-you gift, your ring bearer should be at the top of your list. After all, he is the one responsible for transporting your most precious cargo down the aisle. To jumpstart your gift search, we've put together a list of items that he'll love long after the wedding. And don't worry—we kept his bottomless imagination, love of all things Star Wars, and tech obsession in mind while curating our picks.
To match his broad range of interests, we've included a little bit of everything. We found a tablet for educational game play, a colorful block set that's guaranteed to keep him occupied on cold days indoors, while cozy winter accessories, like a faux-fur trimmed hat, will keep him warm when he ventures outside. If you're gifting on a budget, you'll love our book, pencil, and game picks—and so will he. Just a warning: If you gift him updated Pictionary game pick, expect to play at least three rounds.
No matter how young, your favorite little man does so much more than just carry a pretty box to the altar. He brings you light, joy, and happiness, and has (potentially!) taught you early lessons about what it means to love a little one unconditionally. If you ask us, that's as special as it gets—and that type of love is certainly worthy of a simple reward. Make his month with one of these kid-friendly picks. Hey, you never know. They might even get him to stand still during the wedding photos.
For playing educational games and watching movies on the go, there's no gift better than a kid-friendly tablet. This will be his favorite gift of the season, guaranteed.
