Christmas is coming, so if you’ve got kids the sooner you can prepare, the better. Buying for kids gets harder and harder every year – is it just me, or do they already have everything they could possibly want? If you’re stuck on ideas, I have a few here that I think are really good. Some of them are set to be very popular gifts this year too. Take a look:
A tablet is a really good gift idea for the kids, as there are so many different things you can do with it. You can download books, games, or let them browse the web. It’s really multiple gifts in one! The only downside is that they can be quite expensive, so you might like to look for refurbished models or second hand models. You can buy different tablets depending on age, so make sure you do some research on the most popular tablet by age. This could even be a great gift for any adults you’re buying for.
Books are always a brilliant gift to give, whatever the occasion. I think it’s a particularly good idea to give them to children and get them hooked on good literature as early on as possible! Books will help them to develop their reading skills, as well as communication, vocabulary, and even imagination.
A Game Console
Game consoles can be a wonderful gift, so long as you don’t let your kids spend hours and hours on them. Spending a small amount of time on them can actually help them to develop certain skills, such as problem solving and their reflexes. You can even buy games and consoles designed especially to help them develop. Make sure whatever you buy them is suitable for their age.
All kids should own a bike! I have very fond memories of going out on my bike when I was a child, apart from that one time I fell off. Teaching your kids to ride a bike young is a good idea, and it’ll help them to stay fit and healthy. There are so many different types you can get depending on where you plan on taking them. You’ll need a bike to take them out with too. There are bikes designed to be used on rough terrain, and more classic looking bikes like these Shinola bicycles. Make sure you weigh up the pros and cons to find the right style for you.
Girltech Password Journal
The Girltech password journal is a great gift for little girls. I had something similar years ago and loved it! The voice technology is really cool and you encourage her to write down thoughts and feelings, which is another good skill to have.
Lego Star Wars
For any Star Wars fan, you have Lego Star Wars. Lego Star Wars is going to be one of the most popular gifts this year!
A Monster High Doll
Another gift said to be popular, the Monster High Doll. You can get lots of different characters, but I’d get yours soon before they sell out everywhere. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Happy Christmas shopping!
