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 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.
