|International Children's Day 2020: 15 Best Gift Ideas for Your Kids|
Most kids will probably have a wish list put together before any major gifting occasion, but sometimes you want to shop off-list. Sometimes, you want to give the little one in your life—your child, a niece or nephew, a friend’s child, whoever—a cool, creative, unique gift. Like gifts for teens or tweens, finding distinctive, good presents for kids for birthdays, Christmas, or another gift-giving occasion can be tricky, but there’s a lot out there, and you can rest assured that your standout present will have a special place in the recipient’s memory for years to come.
These gifts coverages across the board, from infants to toddlers to school-aged children. They’re also great for boys and girls alike, so children of any gender can enjoy whatever type of toy they like. Whatever the kid’s interests, there’s something here to appeal to them, so you can be sure to find something in your price range. Once your shopping and wrapping is finished, you’ll know that you’ve given something memorable. (Save those broad white elephant gift ideas for other occasions.)
Take a look at this list of great, cool gifts for kids and save yourself a trip to the toy store—you’ll thank yourself (and us) later.
1. Piggy bank
Giving a piggy bank to your kid is a great idea. It will teach the kids how to save and use the money and inculcate the habit of always thinking for the future. Once the piggy bank is full, let them buy something with that money.
2. Potted plant
Buy a cute potted plant and add a card with an interesting fact about the plant. Explain to your child how to look after the plant and trust them with the responsibility to give it water and sunshine as needed. This gift will encourage your child to be responsible.
3. Wrist watch
All of us remember how adult-like we felt when we learnt how to read the clock. Indulge your kid in the same feeling by gifting them a wrist watch this year. Make sure to choose a watch which is made of a material which is not easily breakable and is water resistant.
The biggest problem the parents face these days is that the children today are not very keen on reading. The majority of parents are clueless about how to develop reading habits in their kids. The best way to go about it is the gift of books. Choose attractive picture books for preschoolers and Montessori level kids. Fun pictures with a simple storyline and a moral can be really helpful for them. However, giving a book is not enough. Sit with them and read the book. Expressions, sounds, and your company can work miracles and get your child really interested in reading. Gifting a fun picture book or a light storybook is also a great Children’s Day gift for preschoolers.
5. Puzzles or Board Games
The lockdown in the aftermath of Covid-19 proved a bit too much for both the parents and kids. Many parents learned the importance of board games and puzzles. The reason is that too much screen time is not good for children and with the added online classes, this time has increased a lot. So, giving children board games and puzzles is an absolutely amazing idea for a Children’s Day Gift.
It is time to revive all the games you played as a child or the puzzles you juggled your mind with. Basic jigsaw puzzles of their favorite cartoon characters, Disney Princesses, and superheroes will not only be attractive, but it will also help exercise their brain. Snakes and ladders, and Beginners scrabble can bring the whole family together. The Monopoly can train future bosses of conglomerates, or simply make one of your family members rich. No matter which game you go for, it will be time well-spent.
6. Educational Games
As mentioned, places like the WB Shop are currently offering great deals on cheap board games for kids. However, you can sneak in a bit of education while you’re at it. We’d suggest checking out our picks for the best games for kids that teach money management. Games like Monopoly (especially the themed ones) and The Game of Life are extremely fun but also educational for little ones.
7. Activity Boxes as Children’s Day Gift
Children love toys and games; so give them something useful instead. I am a fan of self-help activity boxes, which aid learning with fun. There are many brands of activity boxes available online or offline. Select the age criteria and suitability according to your kid. Subscribe or get just one, these boxes are quite engaging and keep them off gadgets or T.V. addiction.
8. Personalized T-shirts or Mugs
Personalized gifts are always appealing to kids and adults alike. Love the happiness on the faces to find their names printed on T-shirts, Mugs, etc. They not only appease them but also adds to memorabilia later. They also learn how to take special care of these personalized items.
9. Bicycles or Skates
The gift must be useful and for the reasons to bring a change – Bicycle, Balancing bike, Roller Skates. Help them in developing a hobby, and outdoor activity. This not only refreshes them from the juggle between school & home but also keeps them active. The city’s space crunch is taking away the open spaces from kids. It’s time to indulge in outdoor sports or hobby which brings a positive change and strengthens the bond between kids and parents.
Your future rock god or goddess will be riffing in no time with this scaled-down take on the classic electric guitar, with the amp built right in. Flashcards and a fun augmented-reality game will help them learn songs in no time flat, and it comes in three different sizes, depending on your rock star's age and size.
11. Princess Dolls
Every girl wants to be a princess. Well, at least to a certain age. Why not get your daughter a pretty princess doll for Children’s Day? It can be Elsa from Frozen or Cinderella or Rapunzel from Tangled. Princess dolls are guaranteed to make little girls shriek with joy.
12. Box of Chocolates
Are you planning to gift milk chocolates to your kids on International Children’s Day? Go ahead and buy it for them. If you are worried about the sugar, make sure to buy a smaller box tied with a pretty, colourful ribbon. Let your child indulge in sweets on this one day; you have the other days of the year to make sure he eats healthy!
13. A recipe
Children enjoy cooking once in a while. If your child likes to cook and try out new recipes, you can give him a special and unique gift, i.e., a recipe which he can try on his own easily. It would serve as a great DIY gift for Children’s Day. Gift him a recipe for a cake or cookies, buy all the ingredients, and keep it ready. Then ask him to bake and assist him if he needs help.
14. Love jars
This is an interesting gift among International Children’s Day handmade gift ideas. Get a mason or a jam jar and tie a brightly coloured silk ribbon around it. You can also stick a nice photo of you and your child on the front. Fill the jar with notes of love and encouragement for your child, special memories you have shared with him, funny jokes, limericks, and so on. Tell your child that every morning, he can pick one of the notes to read for the day. The excitement will keep him happy all day!
15. Your time and undivided attention this Children’s Day gift to your Child
Just not for ONE day, give them your attention and time every time they in need. It gets tasking at times, but this is the most crucial phase they need you. Be supportive; not authoritative. Tell them the difference between choosing right or wrong. But with love, time & attention. Not by any rule book.
