Our top picks for the 25 best gifts for siblings to share together (and not fight over).
Looking for gifts for siblings to share? Or just trying to avoid having to purchase multiple individual gifts?
We rounded up a list of the best group gifts that the whole family can enjoy together.
These gifts will have siblings playing peacefully with one another, instead of pestering their parents about whose turn it is or how long someone is hogging an item.
So kids will love this gift ideas. But the parents will even more! Plus, there’s something for all ages (for even older siblings).
How to Buy Gifts that are Easy to Share
There are 6 stages of play. Unoccupied play, solitary play, spectator play, parallel play, associate play, and the final stage — cooperative play.
This cooperative play stage occurs around ages 4 and older. At this stage, children start wanting to play and interact with each other while engaging in the same activity.
It’s a vital stage because it’s not merely just purely play but sets kids up for adulthood when they have to learn to function as a team.
The best gifts for siblings to share are the ones that encourage them to play together. Gifts that invite siblings to work and create together are ideal.
Toys that can only be used one at a time make it hard for kids play together. So gifts with many parts and pieces are perfect so that each kid has a role.
Check out our favorites below. We made sure to pick a range of gender-neutral items for different age groups. And once you found the one, forgo the generic gift box and opt for some creative gift wrapping ideas instead!
