Are you looking for DIY LEGO gifts for LEGO fans that you, or your kids, can make? Let’s be honest. Those LEGO kits come with hundreds of different LEGO pieces, many of which never get used. LEGOs aren’t just for playtime anymore. You can use them to create a wide variety of different gifts that are perfect for your young LEGO enthusiast! See all my gift ideas here. Disclosure: this post contains commissioned links.
Since M has started playing with LEGO bricks – and has become obsessed with it – I’ve learned the value of gifting along this theme.
It’s an interest with lots of educational value – more than for example Paw Patrol gifts that I’ve focused on in the past. Playing with LEGO offers lots of learning opportunities: following instructions, STEM, creativity, cooperation (when playing with a friend). It also helps us avoid screen time on days when I need a sanity break because of how entertaining it is.
While these gifts don’t necessarily all encourage that kind of play, they encourage the hobby. And since you make ’em yourself, you can get much more value of it, and it has that extra personal touch.
Below, you’ll find a great list full of DIY LEGO gift ideas that all use LEGOs! It’s subdivided into 4 categories:
- LEGO gifts using actual bricks – gift ideas that use actual LEGO bricks.
- DIY LEGO-inspired gifts – these gifts aren’t made from actual bricks but are inspired by LEGO.
- LEGO-themed crafts – LEGO crafts that use LEGOs within the craft.
- LEGO Minifigure gifts – gifts that involve LEGO characters or figures.
What are you waiting for? Grab your stack of unused LEGOs and see what you can create!
