New Christmas gifts for children

Carols, candlelight and cheer fill the air as the Christmas season comes closer.  Kids get hyper excited as they write down their wish lists for Santa and get ready for him to fill their stockings. Here are some tips to get your Christmas shopping cracking.

While shopping for children, look for unique and new toys and other gifts, also make sure they are age appropriate. For toddlers and kids below five, toys and clothes are the most popular gifts. They tend to be a little rough with toys and have a tendency to put them into their mouth. Choose colorful, sturdy and non-toxic toys, these could be toy cars, dolls, keyboards, squeezy bath toys and so on.

Gifts for children over 5 years

Children over 5 would be rapidly gaining new skills and enjoy team activities. Gift a bowling set, a football and board games that they will enjoy playing along with friends.  Encourage creative play with play dough, building kits, children’s tool kits, craft sets and so on.  You can also gift utility items like a fancy bedsheet set, clothes, pencil cases or notebooks.

Gifts for kids 9 to 12 years

Tweens (9 to 12) are a little too old to for kids stuff, yet not developed their own tastes fully and can be rather picky. Gadgets like a Kindle reader, a smart phone, funky headphones and fancy blue tooth speakers are a good idea. You can also give them gift vouchers that can be used online.

Gifts for teenagers

Teenagers are finding their own identity and gifting them a customized T-shirt,  personalized pens, personalized soap and candle sets and so on. Teenage girls are quite fashion conscious and will love trendy clothes, make-up and accessories like handbags and trinkets. Teenage boys will love trendy tees, wallets and tickets to their favorite sporting events. The latest smartphone, tablet or personal home theatre system will have teens thrilled.

Personalized gifts always hold a unique charm for children of all ages and show that you have gone that extra mile to make the recipient happy. Make up a customized gift hamper filled with delicious goodies and chocolates, this will be a surefire hit. Gift an experience, for smaller children, you can gift a visit to a theme park and for older children, it could be tickets to events or the latest movies. Books too make an universal gift and are wonderful keepsakes too.
