Thursday, December 13, 2018
With Christmas just round the corner, most of us would have our Christmas Trees up, brightly lit, wildly decorated and ready to be surrounded by presents galore! If you’re looking to stock up on some gifts for your little ones, this is the article for you. Sometimes, it can be slightly difficult to figure out what is in trend these days when it comes to holiday presents. Gone are the days where a simple doll or action figure will do the trick - children are brighter than ever in 2018 and are excited by a wide variety of toys, gadgets and gizmos. If you’re ready to wow your kids, read on and have a look at some of the more unconventional Christmas presents you can get for the little ones today!
1. Let’s Get Interactive?
If you’re looking for baby Xmas presents, we highly suggest looking into interactive toys. Interactive toys are fantastic learning tools for children of all ages, especially babies who are in that process of widening their imaginations, creativity and overall attention span. Some of the most popular interactive toys at the moment are items such as stuffed animals that sing, read the alphabet or can speak at the press of a button. Items such as building blocks or simple puzzles are also fantastic options for those who would like baby to not just have fun, but develop their spatial awareness and creativity at the same time. Other fun interactive options are shape sorting sets, bead mazes and interactive pets which are popular with children of all ages!
2. Books Are a Child’s Best Friend
When it comes to Christmas presents, you don’t always have to purchase toys, dolls or gadgets for the kids. In fact, why not consider getting them some fun learning books for them to enjoy over the holiday season? Younger children will benefit from picture books, whilst teens will enjoy graphic novels or book series such as Harry Potter. Reading is a fantastic way for children of all ages to improve on their vocabulary, spelling and grammar, so why not kill two birds with one stone and get the kids some of their favourite books for Christmas? A smile on their face and improving grades - can it get any better than that?
3. Think Outside The Box
Most of us don’t think beyond purchasing an item at a gift or toy store when it comes to getting the kids something for Christmas. In reality, who is to say that gifts are limited to items? Why not book the kids into a children’s cooking/baking class, an art class or even a music class? These experiences not only serve as a fantastic gift to the little ones, but also encourage them to get out of the house, interact with their peers and learn new skills at the same time! You can even sign the kids up to day activities such as fruit picking which will educate them or where their food comes from and give them a deeper knowledge of how things are grown, picked and then shipped to the table. This provides your kids with invaluable knowledge that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. A perfect gift doesn’t have to be one that is wrapped in a box!
4. Unleash The Inner Fashionista
We all know how much children love playing dress up. Chances are, you did the same when you were a little one. It is not uncommon for children to want to pick their own clothing out, so why not use this opportunity to bring the little ones clothes shopping? Let each child pick out a full outfit of their own at a department store and purchase it for them as their Christmas present. Not only will the kids feel like they’re all grown up, they’ll feel involved in the process and come out with a brand spanking new outfit that they can show off to their friends as well!
5. Get Them A Subscription
Last but not least, why not get the kids a subscription for Christmas? This can be a subscription to a child friendly magazine, a monthly snack gift box subscription or even a Netflix subscription that you can activate kids mode on to ensure that they are watching the appropriate films for their age. Nothing will make the kids feel as cool as knowing they have their very own subscription to something they like, so this one is one we’d definitely recommend!
We hope that this article has given you a little insight into some of the more unconventional gifts you can purchase for your little ones this Christmas. Happy holidays!
