The Best LEGO Gift Ideas Under $30

This Holiday LEGO Gift Guide was thoughtfully put together by Jordan on the MoneySavingMom team — an expert in all things LEGO and a longtime LEGO aficionado. Even as an adult, he still enjoys putting together giant LEGO Sets with thousands of pieces.

Do you have a LEGO lover in your life? Sometimes finding the perfect set to give as a gift can be difficult. Check out this list of LEGO gifts for some ideas!

LEGO Gifts: Classic Creative Box

LEGO Gifts for Kids

1. LEGO Classic Medium Creative Brick Box — The LEGO classic sets are great starter kits for any kid just developing a love for LEGOS! This set comes with a wide array of different pieces to allow for infinite amounts of building and rebuilding — letting your child explore what they can create! For something more portable, try this smaller set that comes with a carrying case.

LEGO Green Base Plate Stocking Stuffer

2. LEGO Baseplates — The classic green base plate is a staple for any LEGO lover. It provides a stable foundation for their imagination to build on. If you want to go for a twist on the original base plate, you can always check out the traditional blue baseplate (which pairs great with nautical themed LEGO sets) or the curve and crossroad or straight and t-junction plates that pair well with LEGO City sets.

LEGO Gifts: DUPLO All-In-One Box

3. LEGO DUPLO All-in-One-Box-of-Fun — LEGO DUPLO bricks are perfect for young children, because these blocks are larger and don’t present as much of a choking hazard. They also help young children develop fine motor skills, while teaching them basic STEM concepts like pattern recognition, simple mathematics, and spatial awareness.

LEGO DUPLO Toy Story Set

4. LEGO DUPLO Toy Story Train — Kids who love Toy Story will be all about playing with this train and seeing what kind of adventures they can get into with Woody and Buzz!

LEGO City Diving Yacht

5. LEGO City Diving Yacht — I remember having a set just like this as a kid. It’s great because it doubles as a bath toy! As I got older and started to disassemble and reassemble the pieces in fun new ways, the hull of the boat became a great base for an intergalactic starship. (I may need to go dig through my mom’s attic and find this one! ;))

LEGO Creator Shuttle Transporter

6. LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Shuttle Transporter — I loved all things space as a kid (and still do!). Sets like this one were great because they let me imagine flying into the night sky and exploring the stars. If you have a kid who loves space, be sure to also check out the Mars Rover or the Satellite Service Mission. (This retro Benny’s Space Squad from The LEGO Movie 2 is also super cool because it brings back the nostalgia of older LEGO sets.)

LEGO Gifts: Creator 3-in-1 Deep Sea Creatures

7. LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Deep Sea Creatures — The LEGO Creator 3-in-1 sets are great because they help teach kids to look at new ways of assembling the pieces to create something entirely new! This can help develop their imagination and allow them to combine all sorts of sets to build anything they can think of! It’s also sort of like getting three sets for the price on one. If sea creatures aren’t up your kids alley, check out the Mighty Dinosaur, the Underwater Robot, or the Futuristic Flyer.

LEGO Friends Turtle Rescue Mission

8. LEGO Friends Turtle Rescue Mission — While I think all LEGO sets are great for boys or girls, this specific line often appeals to young girls because of the female minifigures and fun colors. This specific set reminds me of playing with the Littlest Pet Shop toys as a kid. I would have loved to have LEGO sets that included mini-figure animals like this when I was younger! There are several LEGO Friends sets that include animals, such as the Mia’s Horse Trailer and Heartlake Surf Shop.

LEGO Speed Champions Porche

9. LEGO Speed Champions — I loved toy cars as a kid, and the only thing better than a hot wheel was a LEGO car I could build on my own. There are a lot to choose from, but I’d recommend the Mustang or Porsche 911.

LEGO Gifts: Minecraft Polar Igloo

10. LEGO Minecraft Polar Igloo — This is a pretty “cool” set! 😉 It’s got great detail and will appeal to all the young Minecraft fans. If you have a kid who loves Minecraft, you might want to check out all the different Minecraft LEGO sets.

LEGO Star Wars A-Wing

11. LEGO Star Wars A-Wing — Honestly, the Star Wars nerd in me could have filled this entire list with LEGO Star Wars sets. In my opinion these are some of the most detailed and fun sets to assemble. I love how they bring the ships from the movie to life. There are Star Wars sets that span the gamut of all ages and skill levels. A few of the other sets I’d suggest looking at in the Star Wars category are The Empire Strikes Back Snowspeeder, The Phantom Menace Podracer, and The Clone Wars Anakin’s Jedi Starfighter.

LEGO Batmobile

12. LEGO Batmobile — For any kid into superheroes, you can’t pass up grabbing a set like this amazing Batmobile or maybe The Hulkbuster if your kid loves the Avengers!

LEGO City Advent Calendar

13. LEGO Advent Calendars — You can’t go wrong with LEGO Advent Calendars! This is something fun you can do each night in December leading up to Christmas. Each day comes with a mini build to put together. I recommend giving it as an early Christmas gift so they can use it throughout the season. Choose from a few different varieties, but the LEGO Friends and LEGO City calendars are both under $30.

R2-D2 Key Chain

Unique LEGO Gifts for Adults

14. LEGO LED Key Ring Light R2D2 — These key chain LED flashlights are the best and you can get them in all sorts of different figures! I personally have R2-D2 on my keychain to help me when I can’t get my door unlocked in the dark, but you can check out a whole selection of them here.

Unique LEGO Iconic Brick Calendar Gift

15. LEGO Iconic Brick Calendar — This calendar is a great gift for any adult LEGO lover who wants to remember to be a kid at heart! And it still looks clean and put together on a desk.

Unique LEGO Gift Classic Mug Upscaled

16. LEGO Classic Mug Upscaled — If your adult LEGO fan is a coffee or tea drinker, one of these mugs might be perfect. This blue mug is the upscaled version of the mugs the mini-figures hold in LEGO sets. You could also grab them this Minifigure Head Mug or this build on mug that they can decorate themselves.

Blue LEGO Slippers

17. LEGO Slippers — These LEGO slippers would make the perfect gift to keep your LEGO fans feet cozy, warm, and safe from the ever present danger of stepping on one of these tiny pieces of doom!

LEGO Life Magazine Stocking Stuffer

LEGO Stocking Stuffers

18. Free LEGO Life Magazine — This is such a fun (and FREE!) stocking stuffer for kids ages 5-9. And it’s so much fun for kids to get their own mail throughout the year! This magazine comes four times per year. If the first issue doesn’t arrive in time for Christmas, just print off a photo of the magazine cover to roll up and stick in the stocking!

LEGO Minifigure Wallet Stocking Stuffer

19. LEGO Mini-Figure Wallet — This LEGO themed wallet would be a fun stocking stuffer so they can save up to pick out their own LEGO set!

LEGO Disney Minifigures Stocking Stuffers

20. LEGO Mini-Figure — This is a great surprise stocking stuffer because you don’t know which character you’ll get. There are tons to choose from, but this Disney series is especially unique and fun!

LEGO Iconic Snowman Ornament Stocking Stuffer

21. LEGO Iconic Snowman Ornament — This would make a LEGO fan extremely happy to be able to place on the tree year after year and makes a perfect stocking stuffer.

LEGO Store Gift Card Stocking Stuffer Idea

22. LEGO Store Gift Card — Maybe all these options are overwhelming and you just aren’t sure what to get your LEGO lover. Slide a LEGO gift card in their stocking! They’ll love picking out a their own set either in a LEGO Store or online!

They can be purchased to remember a trip or maybe as a goal for a place to visit one day. Either way your LEGO fan will love putting together these models. There are several affordable options: Paris Skyline, London Skyline, San Francisco Skyline, or Great Wall of China.
