10 Things to Consider When Buying a Gift for Kids

Are you currently shopping for gifts for your kids? Make sure to keep these 10 things in mind while you shop!

1. Keep it fun

Remember, you’re shopping for a kid! Don’t get too serious or sentimental, that will just be lost on them. Kids enjoy fun/jokester gifts that will keep them busy.

2. Choose something they’ll be interested in for a long time

This doesn’t mean a lifetime, but you want something that will keep the child happy and entertained for more than 5 minutes. That will make them happy, and keep you happy too.

3. Remember their age

The biggest mistake you can make when shopping for a child is to get them something that is either too young or too old for them.

If it’s too young, they may get upset and be offended, and if it’s too old, they might not be able to use it. If you are shopping for very young children, choose accordingly.

If you are shopping for a tween kid, you will have to get more creative and ditch Disney themed toys.

4. Consider a bunch of small gifts

In most cases, quality beats quantity. But with kids, the excitement of having numerous presents to open outweighs the desire for one good present.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money, but rather get a couple of small things that they will enjoy opening and playing with.

5. Don’t spoil them

This might sound like a contradiction to the previous tip, but it isn’t. You can get a child multiple gifts, but that doesn’t mean you should go crazy and spend a lot of money and buy them a huge number of items.

Remember, the child will remember what you did for them in previous years, so if you go overboard you are setting up an unrealistic expectation for years to come.

6. You might like matching gifts, they probably won’t

You might enjoy getting matching sweaters with your child, but that probably isn’t what will excite them.

If you do that, make sure to at least get them one other thing you know they will love.

7. Get something you can use with your child

It is so important to engage and interact with children (whether it is your own or someone else’s). Consider a toy that involves working together and problem-solving.

The child will have fun trying to solve or build the toy, and they will also be developing crucial life skills at the same time.

8. Listen to their ideas

Kids will almost always give you ideas about what they want for their birthday or over the holidays.

If you have no idea what to get them, just listen! You don’t have to get them everything they ask for (see #5), but if there is one thing, in particular, they keep talking about, that’s a good sign it’s something they’ll really love and appreciate.

9. Consider their interests/hobbies

Does this kid play a sport after school, or are they involved in some other type of after school activity? Encourage those interests by getting them a gift that they can use either at the activity or at home to help them grow their skills.

10. Stay away from technology if you can

Technology has become such a big part of everyone’s lives, including kids. If you can, consider a present that doesn’t involve technology and screens.

Kids spend too much time on computers and smartphones as it is, try to get them away from that and doing something else.

Gifts Ideas for Kids Coming Up!

How nice would it be to be a kid again! These are some of the best, most fun years of life. Today, shopping for the perfect gift for a kid can be quite a challenge!

With so many different toys out there, it’s hard to know how to make the right decision. What gifts are cool? What gifts are exciting? You might not know the answers to those questions, but we do!

Making a child smile and laugh is one of the best feelings, and we want to help make that happen!

Our gift guides for children will give you ideas for some of the coolest, most unique gifts you can get for kids of all ages, from toddlers to 10-12-year-olds to teens.

How to nail a gift for the kids of today: practical tips

Getting it right can be a wonderful experience for the giver and the child, but getting it wrong spells complete disaster.

You’ll forever be known as the person who really screwed up the gift, and it’s a reputation that could take years to live down. Having said that if you stick to some basic rules, you should be able to nail it every time.

The Cost Doesn’t Count

You don’t have to buy the most expensive toys for children, as certainly young kids fail to understand the value of toys. If they don’t understand, they often look for items that are more expensive and bigger every year. What you should be doing is getting kids to treasure every gift they receive, no matter the price.

It’s surprising when you give a kid a present of a toy, how the most expensive are not necessarily the best or the most engaging to a child.

Every Christmas there is a ‘must-have’ toy, and it’s surprising how many get discarded after just a few minutes.

Often the simplest of items can be the most engaging and can be part of the learning process through play.

Always giving expensive items can lead to dissatisfaction with anything less, and can give a child a warped sense of value.

Quality Over Quantity

Particularly at Christmas, we seem to overbuy presents for children. When the kids are small, it seems every relative thinks it’s their duty to buy a present for the little one.

We can all remember a mountain of presents under the Christmas tree of which only a few will ever get played with for more than an hour or so in its whole lifetime.

Super young kids are happy when they see a pile of packages for them which gets them excited. So, much so that it’s not about appreciating what they get but opening them that becomes the thrill.

Getting the Age Right

Especially with young kids, it's always difficult making sure the gift is appropriate to their age. As we know children develop at different rates, and a toy that may be aged for a seven or eight-year-old on the box may be too complex or too simple for your youngster. It’s important to find a toy for a child that they can master.

Otherwise, it will be discarded and never see the light of day again. If you don’t know the kid intimately, then get in contact with the parents and discuss your thoughts for an item/toy to see if it is appropriate for the child, as they will have the best inkling of their child’s ability and development.

Fun and Safe

Safety is the key, especially when it comes to very small children. Babies and toddlers are more than likely to put a gift in their mouth, so make sure it has no sharp edges, and that if it is painted the paint is non-toxic. Nowadays there are clear safety marks on toys that have passed rigorous safety tests.

Watch out for imports from the Far East that may not have gone through these checks and could, therefore, be a danger to the child’s health. Small parts that can easily break off and swallowed are another danger that gift-givers need to be aware of.

It’s the Thought That Counts

No matter how big, or how expensive the gift you give to a child, it’s the thought and action of giving that is more important.

Giving some thought to what a child might like, wrapping it in a paper, and handing it over in person, can be one of the most satisfying feelings imaginable.

Seeing a child’s face light up when they open your gift is priceless. If the gift becomes a firm favorite with the child that can add to the pleasure.

When Is The Best Time To Give a Gift?

Giving a child something for no particular reason is inappropriate, and can be very counter-productive.

If a child receives presents without a valid reason, they will come to expect them all the time, which does away with the reason for gifting.

They also can undervalue a gift if it becomes a regular occurrence. What can happen if kids take it for granted they are going to be given presents, and then they fail to understand the essence of gratitude?

What you are doing, in that case, is spoiling the child, and building up an unintentional exchange relationship. Parents often give presents to reward good behavior, however being good should be the norm and not something special that requires a gift.

That brings us to the best times to gift a child. A birthday is obviously a good time. Some years are more special than others, such as their first birthday, the year they start school or kindergarten, and of course the 18th birthday at their coming of age.

Christmas is probably the other great gift-giving day of the year. Other holidays are great for gifting sweets or chocolates such as Easter, Halloween, or Thanksgiving.

Picking the Right Present

Getting a present appropriate to the age of the child is one of the basics as we’ve discussed before, but it’s also good to know their sex and understand their interests. Buying something for a boy is very different from buying an item for a girl.

A little research before purchasing a gift will pay handsomely.
