Tips for Buying Birthday Gifts for Kids

Author: Nicole Adler   Date Posted:16 June 2016 

It can be hard to find the perfect birthday gifts or any other types of gifts for anyone. However, it’s especially hard to buy gifts for kids. The little ones have a natural tendency to be curious. So, they lean towards exploring their surroundings and their environment even more than they should sometimes. So, it’s important to note that kids need something that can either be fun and engaging or something that’s practical and useful that will not only keep them engaged and comfortable but will also lessen their parent’s stress levels.

Birthday Gifts for Babies

Babies are the most curious among kids. Since they are in a phase where mostly everything is new to them, they are the ones who would need the most nurturing and care. Unequipped with experiencing the world long enough to make sound decisions, it’s important that you give babies and their families something that’s both stimulating and safe. Giving them birthday gifts like teddies and stuffed animals like the Emme the Elephant Doll or Spot the Dog Plush would be perfect because they’re soft and are not harmful to their skin or health. Having one gives them a sense of comfort and protection because they have something to hug. It also gives them a friendly and familiar object to call their own. It teaches them early on that they too can be nurturing towards something else other than themselves. It shows them the value of things they own.
Birthday Gifts for Toddlers

Being a toddler means that they are already in the stage in their lives where they develop certain skills and fears. So, it’s important that you guide them towards optimising their environment to develop these skills and show them that there is nothing to fear.
The TOLO Rolling Stackable Shape Sorter Set is one example of a birthday gifts that will help your toddler learn and have fun at the same time. While letting toddlers roll it around and play with it and stack the shapes together, the stackable shape sorter also allows your child to develop his thinking by putting the shapes in the correct slots to be able to achieve a certain goal.
The Nutty Squirrel LED Ornament and the Loppy the Rabbit LED Ornament are also good examples of great birthday gifts for toddlers because it makes them feel safe at night from things that creep under their bed or inside their closets. These LED ornaments will be beacons of light to keep them from waking up from their sleep. It’s a silent assurance that nothing’s going to harm them. It also gives parents their much needed good night’s rest because their kids won’t be going to their room in the middle of the night to ask if they can spend the night with them. This is especially important when you want your toddlers to become independent at this early stage of their lives.
Birthday Gifts for Teens

After the stage where kids develop their skills and slowly grow out of fears comes the stage where kids want to test out their newly acquired skills and courage and go on adventures and challenges. It’s important that you keep them safe during this time without having to restrict them from finding out and exploring their true interests. So, for kids who are in their early teen years, experiences can be great gifts for them.
You can give them birthday gifts like an Introductory Full Day Adventure or some Bondi Private Surf Lessons so that they not only have fun and learn but also discover new things about themselves they never otherwise would have known in the comforts of the four corners of their home or school. This will also allow them to make memories they can share with friends they meet as they grow older. This is also perfect because you can give these types of gifts to either boys or girls.
But if you’re giving a gift to a teen that has a family that likes to explore things together, you can give them tour packages like a Chocolate Walking Tour in Melbourne that will not only satisfy their wanderlust but also satisfy their tastebuds and gastronomic needs.

Gift Hampers as Birthday Gifts for Kids

Gift hampers are perfect alternatives for when you just can’t decide what to give kids. You can order one especially for the kids themselves like the Pink Knit Blanket & Sophie Hamper  and the Peter Rabbit Baby Hamper, or order ones that have items for the parents as well like the Snuggles Baby Hamper which includes a Snuggle Bear for the babies to enjoy and a Brown Brothers Methode Traditionelle King Valley Pinot Noir Chardonnay NV for the parents.
Vouchers as Birthday Gifts
