Here are some great Christmas gift ideas for children

With Christmas just around the corner, I’m sure you already did most of the shopping. However, finding the perfect gift for your kid is not an easy task, especially given the huge amount of things you can find in stores nowadays. So, if you’re still in doubt about picking the right present for the little one, maybe the following tips & tricks will help you easily decide on what’s best for your kid.

Ask your kid to write a letter to Santa

Although most of the kids nowadays think letters are obsolete, it is best to still keep some of the Christmas magic hanging and ask your kid to write a real letter to Santa. Kids tend to be extremely concise in wishes and write down only the important things they really wish they would receive.

This is a great method to not only practice handwriting, but also find out more about your children’s passions and what’s new in terms of toys and gadgets. Plus, it will save you some useless trips to the shopping mall trying to guess what your kids want based on their reactions to the toy departments.

 

Legos and puzzles

If the previous tip failed or your kid’s wishes are way above your budget, you can never go wrong with some new Lego and puzzle games. These are the perfect games to develop your kids’ creativity and imagination while providing endless combinations of things they can build. Ever since the toy company released its first interlocking toy bricks back in 1949, millions of children worldwide learned to use limited resources and enrich their imagination by creating new toys each time.

Board games

Board games are perfect for when you have more kids and you want them to keep quiet for long hours. They are also good for children reunions to keep them away from boredom or to complete family nights. Board games improve children’s creativity and logic, helping them develop strategies and an analytic thinking. They could last for hours but will certainly become indispensable at family reunions or birthday parties, so I suggest looking for the coolest ones this season.

And, since Christmas is approaching, you could also take a look at the board games specific for the holiday season, as I am certain you are going to find at least one that is interesting and fun to play.

 

Artsy crafts sets

If your kid is into DIY projects, probably one of the coolest presents you can purchase for them is a creative set to help them develop more of their creativity. From sewing to knitting or building, craft sets can even turn your kid’s passion into a future job.

 

 

3 amazing presents for book geeks

Book nerds are wonderful people that have a great personality and sense of humor. The reason why we fail to see these positive aspects is that they prefer to read a book and sip from a tea mug in a nice and quiet place. Even though they like to be left alone, no one will ever say no to a special gift that comes from the heart.

Because it’s difficult to understand a geek’s nature, we have a hard time deciding on the perfect item to give them as a present. Fortunately, lots of online stores have tons of cool stuff that suit perfectly the personal needs and preferences of a bookworm. Showcased below you’ll find a top list of suggestions that you can use next time you need to get a present that won’t disappoint the receiver.

 

 

  1. An explorer’s guide to the hidden treasures of the world

The majority of books geeks are fascinated about books that cover all sorts of beautiful locations from all over the world because they feel like virtually traveling while reading them. So it’s quite a great idea getting them a book that doesn’t look like a traditional travel guide. Instead, it gives you hints about places that are not so famous and less crowded with tourists. Basically, it’s like having a useful local guide that shows you what’s actually cool to see and not what all people want to visit.

Also, a book like this covers all the continents so that it’s impossible to ever get bored. The best part is this written gem doesn’t necessarily encourage people to book a ticket and travel but to learn new things and expand their cultural horizons.

 

  1. Solar lantern for reading

Now, this is a real lifesaver for any book lover out there. It happens a lot especially when you find an excellent book that really captures your interest and you forget about time. Some people enjoy reading books at night because it’s the only moment when they feel relaxed. Plus, it’s quieter and almost no chance to be disturbed.

A solar lantern that can be deflated and folded comes in handy if you’re on the road, camping with your RV. The best part is that it is completely waterproof and shatterproof and features different lighting modes to choose from.

 

  1. Secret library door

This gift is truly magnificent because it gives the user the possibility to have its own bookshelf that swings open and reveals a hidden door. The door provides access to a room that can be used as a private reading room, a secret passageway or a pantry.  

A product of this kind comes with clear instructions that allow you to customize the door according to your space and other elements of design.

 

 

 

5 funny baby gifts for new parents

 

It is said that having a newborn will complete your life as a mother, and will give greater meaning to your family life as well. And while all that seems magnificent, how many of you mothers and fathers out there didn’t feel like losing it at least once in the first few months?

All the baby screamings, constant eating, and changing diapers doesn’t seem like my type of week, but I wouldn’t change it for anything in the world. Well, maybe just for an afternoon off, a hot bubble bath, and a large glass of rose wine.

However, being a new parent does have its perks as well, meaning you get to receive a lot of gifts for the baby shower and the upcoming birthdays. And, while most of them will happen to be for the baby itself, one can only dream of something actually useful, or at least funny, for the parents too. Anyway, I made a list with some of the funniest baby gifts I know I would want to receive for my upcoming baby shower (wink, wink).

A new stroller

I know it’s an expensive gift but just think for a second about all the spending I have to on my list just by taking this baby out of me. If you want to make a considerable gift to a new parent, buy a baby stroller. These cool baby strollers may come in handy if you’re running out of ideas.

Baby onesies and bodies

Again, not entirely for the parents, but I cannot resist buying tons of onesies and bodies for that little fellow. They are simply adorable, and some of them can make the parents laugh too. What I like is that all of them are made from soft and breathable fabrics, so my baby won’t get rashes or irritations while wearing them and looking cool.

Trust me; a cool baby onesie will be a great gift for parents too because, let’s face it, people are the ones seeing it, not the baby itself.

Adult coloring books

It may seem like childish, but there are some very cool “mom life” coloring books depicting every story that has happened or will happen to you, as a new parent. So why not cut some slacks and get a good laugh once in a while? But if you manage to perfectly color more than a couple of pages in a month, you may want to look after your baby more.

Funny T-shirts for parents

Sometimes you want to brag about your parent skills, so what better way to do so than by letting your outfit speaking for you? With just a quick online browse you will find thousands of shops selling funny t-shirts to wear while shopping, day caring, taking your child to kindergarten, and others. I got mine saying “World’s Number 1 Okayest Mom” because, well, I have bad days too.
