Kids playing a game in the arcade


Are you scouring the internet for kids’ gift ideas? What are kids into these days? The holidays are coming and all the nieces, nephews, grandkids, and little cousins need to be checked off the list. Some kids know exactly what they want while others may be harder to shop for, but Chuck E. Cheese has a range of gifts that ANY kid would be excited about. We’ve got everything from simple stocking stuffer gifts in our shop to the ultimate gaming experience. And if you know a kid that squeals with joy every time they hear the name Chuck E. Cheese, you can be sure these ideas won’t disappoint.

If you’re wondering what to get kids for Christmas, you could give them a game…or you could give them 50! A visit to Chuck E. Cheese is a totally awesome and memorable present for a child. The prize counter alone gives Santa’s workshop a run for its money. Kids get to play all the games, eat their favorite pizza and desserts, and then pick out a toy to take home! What more could a kid want?

Gift cards hold the promise of future playdates, and they’re a super simple solution to the problem of present paralysis. Our gift cards never expire, and they’re redeemable for anything sold at our fun centers: food, game play, and all the excitement that comes with a visit, including dance floor grooving and hugging Chuck E! How can something so huge fit so conveniently inside an envelope?

Remember that participating locations open two hours early on the first Sunday of each month for kids with sensory sensitivities! These special days offer a quieter environment, dimmed lighting, and a trained and caring staff so EVERYONE can enjoy the gift of play.

Gaming is awesome, but maybe you want a “real” gift — something they can unwrap. The Chuck E. Cheese shop has everything you need, from this cute Winter Winner Tee  (matching family photos, anyone?) to these adorable Chuck E. Cheese socks (the perfect stocking stuffers). The whole shop is full of gifts that make shopping for Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year’s, and other holidays a cinch! And we know you’re here for kid presents, but you can bet this Chuck E. ornament will get stolen a few times at that white elephant gift exchange.


A day of games and pizza is fitting for any occasion from Valentine’s Day to tooth fairy gifts. If you’re on the hunt for kindergarten graduation gifts or elementary graduation gifts, that’s a party the whole class will want in on. And of course you can’t think “Chuck E. Cheese” without thinking “birthday parties!” Sometimes kids’ birthday gifts come in a box, but a birthday party package is an unforgettable experience (and a gift to the parents who don’t have to clean up). Looking for something smaller? Gift cards, prize wall toys, and birthday apparel also make great birthday gifts for kids. Anything Chuck E. Cheese is sure to be a hit!
