Christmas Gifts For Young Adult Children

Gone are the days that I get to purchase toys for my children. These days I get Christmas lists emailed to me and the gifts aren’t as fun to buy but at least I know they’ll like them.

I will say, both of our children are single and money is tight (Cory is paying back law school and Courtney is a single Mom)  so they appreciate anything we buy them!

Here are some Christmas Gifts For Young Adult Children:

My son Cory is the fashion guru of the family. I know you thought it was me but I like to think I taught him everything he knows! Cory’s an attorney and a stylish one at that.

His favorite places to shop online are,, and

These are some gifts Cory would like. I’m not sure about the French press but if you have a young man who loves coffee, it would make a great gift.

Courtney is also fashion conscious, and she is an amazing decorator. Her home is so cute! She has so much of her Nana (my Mom) in her. She loves TJ Maxx, Marshall’s and Target.

Courtney and Cory have always been very close. They’re 15 months a part (Courtney is the oldest) and I’m proud of both of them. I’m excited to see what God has planned for their future.

Christmas Gifts For Young Adult Children

Do you have any great gift ideas for young adult children?

Beauty For the Heart~~One of the things my children will tell you is I still encourage them in their relationship with the Lord. I say this all the time but If I don’t encourage my kids to walk with the Lord, who will?

Scripture says, “So commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these words of mine. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. Teach them to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up.”

It doesn’t say stop after they turn 18 or 21 years old. Continue to share Christ and encourage your children no matter what their age!

Have a blessed day!

  1. For the past few years my “go to” gift for young adults has been the gloves with special fingers for texting. Guys and girls alike seem to appreciate them, and they come in all kinds of colors. I also think everyone should get something they can play with on Christmas. The biggest hits in the past few years have been Flying Screaming Monkeys or some kind of marshmallow shooter. This year I found bows that shoot mini-marshmallows, but they also have them in air rifle style. A great fall-back would be iTunes or Netflix – they all seem to enjoy those. This year my youngest is 26, married and pregnant, so suddenly there are so many things they really need; not much fun to give, but hopefully appreciated.

  2. I just had to laugh when I saw your post. I felt the same way when my 25 year old sent me her Santa list complete with links to websites and coupons codes attached! But the good thing is she was thoughtful in what she selected knowing that we were also buying for a new son-in-law too.

  3. I couldn’t agree more, Cyndi! I was so privileged to be at home with my 4 kids all through their “growing up” years but I love being their encourager in their adult lives. We are never “done” , are we? What a blessing it is to realize that God continues to develop and grow this special gift of motherhood. I recently read this on Kirk Cameron’s website and added it to my refrigerator door:
    1) That God would make them alive in Christ
    2) That they would hunger & thirst after God’s Word
    3) That they would rely on the gospel of grace each & every moment
    4) That they would know God’s love
    This is a wonderful prayer for our children at any stage of their lives!
    God bless & thanks for the great post.❤️

  4. Hi Cyndi,
    I love the french press idea. I have never used one before. I have everyone in my office checking it out. Do you know if the coffee tastes different with the press?
    Love all your ideas.

    1. Deanne the coffee takes delicious!!!!!! I’m hoping I might be getting one for Christmas. 🙂
      It’s not quick but it you want a great cup of coffee this is the way to go!

  5. Buying for my daughter, son-in-law, son and daughter-in-law is my annual brain stretch. Trying to be creative in getting them something they don’t have or are not expecting seems impossible. This year was easier for some reason, maybe it’s because the kids gave me better information about each other. My daughter makes me laugh, she is such an “out there” diva. She flat out tells me what she wants and is very careful to make sure I know all of the details less I get the wrong thing! (this year was her favorite line of cosmetics) My daughter-in-law got a new home office this year. She likes to decorate in the “country/shabby chic” style, so office decor and accessories for her! My son is an ameteur barista. He has such a colllection of pots, filters, tea kettles that he needs an entire up and down section of kitchen cabinets for his equipment. We heard him talking about a new coffee shop he’s been visiting and how he’s become great friends with the barista there. A quick call to the barista gave me a huge list of suggestions. My son-in-law (always the tough one) is a business owner and consultant. He has taken to wearing bold dress socks with his otherwise classic suits. I found out about and had a hard time choosing from the huge offering of socks. After I finished, I felt there was something I should be panicking about because it all came too easily. I’ll pay for it next year, I’m sure and be down to the 23rd like I was last year shopping for one of them!

  6. These are the perfect gifts for your two young adults. Yes, I agree it is a good idea to get to know your children and what they would like, so not to do what I did. LOL My hubby and I went shopping for our children… and the youngest daughter being 12 was simple, the next youngest daughter of 17 was a little more complex, but not hard, then a son of 20 was easy(he told me what he needed) and then came the son of 26 who is out on his own in his own apartment and a good job, so his father thought he may need something for his vehicle…. Bought the item the father wanted to buy for him, then I called him and slyly asked about the item we bought, and yep, he already had one, so I took it back right then and bought the best thing I know for him…. A Gift Card!!

    1. The son of 20 is in college so he was not hard to buy for, they are pretty open about what they need or want, when they reach that age. LOL Daughter of 17, I’ve learned never to buy her clothes that she has not already picked out, and since she and I share some of our shoe and boot likes, I am safe there. The daughter of 12 still loves most of the stuff momma gives to her, not tooo picky, yet! But then I know what she likes as I have learned with each child.
      You are doing a good thing to still encourage them in the Lord at any age!! My oldest lives an hour from us and he has found a great church and going to it and has made his momma proud.

  7. We have been getting tickets to a touring Broadway show for our two adult children and their spouses. They are something they enjoy, but expensive and not something they would likely buy themselves. We get them tickets next to each other so it is a fun outing for the two couples together… I love building those bonds!
