Choosing gifts can be difficult for a number of reasons but it’s especially difficult to buy gifts for children when their likes and dislikes are forever changing. Do they still like Power Rangers? Is Pink still their favourite colour?
Sometimes it can seem like an impossible task but if you want the gift to be a surprise then asking them what they like isn’t an option. If you’re currently looking for the perfect gift for a child but you have no clue where to start then take a look at the suggestions below, this should give you a few gift ideas that you might not have thought of and which would make the perfect gift.
If you’re looking for something with a personal touch that you can tailor to suit a young child then a personalised item could be just the thing. You would be surprised at how many different items you can get personalised and here are just a few you could choose from; framed name print, personalised clothes with their name on it, a personalised jigsaw, engraved jewellery or how about a personalised stuffed animal which would make a lovely keepsake for a new-born.
If you’re looking for a gift for an older child then why not give them a gift of making memories. An experience day would make a lovely gift for a child and there’s so much to choose from, how about a ride in a hot air balloon, a young learner driving experience, a record your own music experience, or a day as a zookeeper – the options are endless. If the child you’re looking to buy a gift for is likely to receive gifts from other people, then this is a great alternative because it’s something they can enjoy and have the memory of forever.
A designer gift
If you’re looking for something with wow factor then you could opt for designer gifts for children. Everyone enjoys the nicer things in life and a designer gift would be a lovely item to give. Not
only would a designer item of clothing be practical but it’s something stylish and if you’re buying for a tween or teen we all know how important fashion and style is at that age.
Okay, hear me out here! I know that not everyone will agree with me and you might feel that a birthday should be a fun time not educational, but learning can be fun. If the child you’re buying for has a favourite subject at school, you could use this in your quest to find them a gift. If they like maths you could buy them a number related game, or if they enjoy reading you could pick out a book for their age range, if they’re always building things you could opt for a build your own robot. There are a lot of options and if you’re buying a gift for someone else’s child I’m sure they will be grateful for a fun but educational gift.
I hope the above suggestions have helped give you some gift inspiration. If you’re still struggling you could take a look at my Christmas gift guide for children which has gift suggestions that are organised by age and might give you some additional ideas.
