Holiday Gifts Children Will Love!
Since Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is on its way, it’s time to brainstorm what gifts to give to the children in your life! Whether the child you’re shopping for is into action heroes or already likes music and video games, why not be creative and give him gifts that he will love?
There are so many fun games you can gift a child that will get his or her creative mind going. Whatever you decide on you know the child the best – so enjoy purchasing gifts they will enjoy and then wrapping them up and placing them underneath the Christmas tree!
If a child is into building things and LEGOs, for example, chances are they will love this holiday’s new sets made with kids in mind. There’s no doubt he or she will have a blast interacting with the characters and roaming with them everywhere across the land (aka your home) with a set that comes with colorful LEGOs and buildable flying vehicles. No bad guys will get away!
Another idea is to incorporate playground sports equipment into your driveway or backyard. Have a child who dreams of becoming a famous basketball player? Whether there’s a child in your life who enjoys the great outdoors or loves playing with a ball, chances are they will also enjoy sporting equipment such as a basketball hoop. Shooting hoops with a child is a great way for them to work on their coordination and bond with a parent or friend!
Marker airbrush set and paint
What about a marker airbrush set or paints that will help a child unleash their creativity? Allow them to use an airbrush set to produce really cool effects on clothes, windows, and paper. The markers easily turn into spray art, and some kits come with fabric markers, washable markers, paper, and stencils so they can be creative all they want. Set up a child with his or her own creative station and allow them to be artistic with a new airbrush set or paints after the holiday!
Fish tank with colorful fish
Not ready to commit to a cat or a dog? Then perhaps a fish or two is just what a child needs to prep them for a furry friend in the future. From modern fish tanks to aquariums, most little boys enjoy a deep water tank abyss that they can have fun with and gaze at the beautiful fish. You can place it in the child’s room, out in the kitchen or the living room.
Depending on the child’s age consider giving them a fish tank during the holidays might be the perfect idea. Also, don’t forget to fill it up with tropical fish and treasure trove accessories that will add color and character to the tank. A kid will easily love staring at the tank with all of the adventurous sea creatures (the plastic characters, of course), and you can also use it as a learning experience by teaching children how to take care of fish and how to clean the tank.
If I’d been given an airbrush set as a child … well, there’d have been more on me (and in me) than anywhere else!
The best present I ever got was a huge cardboard packing case that a fridge-freezer came in. My sister & I travelled around the world and even to the moon in that big box!
It is the hardest to find something for the teens in my family. Their interests change all the time. Last 2 years I have just done gift cards for them.
For my youngest nephew, presents are no problem: he wants everything & he tells you every time he sees it on a commercial, lol. The older 2 are more difficult to shop for.
I always need ideas for gift for kids. These are all wonderful ideas! Especially the fish tank. 🙂
