We’re now counting the days to Christmas. It won’t be long before you see bright eyes and big smiles when the little ones in your family open holiday gifts. While many of these kids think Santa Claus came down the chimney with a sack of presents, we recognise the hard work you did, making the holidays lovely for everyone.
But now if you are out of ideas and don’t have time or the creativity for DIY presents, then here are seven fun and festive holiday gifts ideas for kids, that they’ll for sure love.
A terrific gift for both boys and girls. You don’t have to live near a pond, there are lots of indoor ice skating rinks you can take your child to. Ice skating is a fun sport that can also encourage children to take up figure skating or ice hockey in the future. Your gift of ice skates could lead to a lifetime of enjoying winter sports.
What will truly make your parents and grandparents grin ear-to-ear is learning that the latest finger paints have been created such that they only paint on the paper, and will show up as an entirely clear gel on your carpet or walls. This saves lots of cleaning time and expense, while letting your little ones express their creative side. Teaching your child how to mix different colours together to create new colours is not only joyful but also educational, too.
Christmas crackers have been a family tradition for generations. First created by a gentleman in the UK in the late 1800s, they have been a part of celebrating the Christmas holidays for so many families. Share this tradition with your children by gifting them a special package of Christmas crackers. Also, having a box of crackers at hand to give out to your family on Christmas day is always a great idea. Everyone will be able to enjoy the tiny treats, treasures, jokes, and fun surprises that are inside.
Tickets to a holiday show
Whether you are in a big city or a smaller one, this is the ideal time to see holiday plays, concerts, and shows that won’t be performed at any other time of year. Attending these with your child as a holiday gift can also become a wonderful holiday tradition. You can let your child invite a friend if the tickets are in a good price range.
This is considered one of the most classic Christmas gifts a child can receive. Do remember if they receive a bicycle, it will be something that is typically put away for the winter months. This is a gift that requires patience on your child’s part.
Encouraging your child to use their imagination is a lovely gift indeed. You’ll find so many types of hand puppets, from just about every type of animal in the zoo or pet that they would see their friends have. A hand puppet can let them create a character to tell stories or jokes. It is especially ideal to get them a set of hand puppets so that they can create their own plays with them.
Buying Christmas gifts for kids is fun and rewarding. Thankfully, today there are a lot of choices when it comes to gifts for children. One of the best gift giving decisions you can make is to share the traditions from your childhood of Christmas so that they can learn about their family. One day they will pass these traditions down to their children and grandchildren as well. Merry Christmas!
