What do they do for fun?

Think about what the kid you’re buying a gift for likes to do for fun. Do they like building things? If so consider something like LEGOs or Lincoln logs, these are fun toys that kids can play with for hours. If they live in a neighborhood with paved streets, consider something like a scooter or roller skates. If they have a pool consider something that they can use and play with in the pool. You get the idea. Kids always like gifts that have to do with drawing or building things.

What could they use?

Thing about what present they could actually use. If they are going back to school soon, maybe a cool backpack could be something they both want and need. Getting a gift that is both practice and fun is always the best.

Think of something they can do with their friends

Kids love anything that they can use while playing with their friends. Something like sidewalk chalk or a fort kids will give kids hours and hours of fun. But more than having fun, kids are learning to work together and communicate with others. Anything that kids can use with their friends and have a good time with will make a great gift.

What not to Buy

Don’t get kids cloths or worst of all… something like socks. Don’t buy something that they have to wait to use. If it’s super hot outside where they live, don’t get them something like some jacket or winter clothes.

  1. Really great tips! We are not really a family who consume a lot. My daughter is only two now so every christmas has been small coints so she could drop them in her money pig. But ofcourse when they older they would start to wishing things.

  2. I have four children in a wide age range 27–8. The oldest wants gift cards My 20 yr old plans on moving out of our home in January and only wants house hold items(easy right). Then I have two boys 12 and 8 who want everything I cant afford. Electronics are not cheap. What happen to legos and monster trucks? $399.00 for a video game system. WOW $59.00 for 1 game to go along with it. Thats what my kids want.

  3. Thanks so much for this these are really great tips. Christmas will be here before we know it so it’s great to get a jump on the shopping!
