For any child, birthday presents are the world to them! Year after year birthdays come around so fast, and there’s always a desire and a plan to find the right present for a child. Anyone can buy a video game, doll house, clothes or a movie.
The finest way to find a gift is to let the child’s style and taste guide you. You want the gift to be unique but also something that the child will enjoy. Gifts are easy to get when you support an interest that the child may have. It is always good to shop with them and get to know the child and their taste in things. If they’re interested in astronomy, buy a tour to the planetarium or the observatory. If they love animals, get them tickets to the aquarium, zoo or a 3D film that relates to animals. If they’re into cars, get them tickets or go with them to a fair and do a bumper car adventure. This gift is great because it gives you time to listen and spend quality time.
You may even find a random interest the kid might have and you can become a mentor to the child. You could bring that interest to life for them. If you can’t find a specific class you can find a special place they like to go, and take a day trip there, even spending the night in. Slumber parties, backyard camping and scavenger hunts are other memorable presents for kids. You can make the scavenger hunt exciting by using the presents that the birthday boy or girl will get when they solve the puzzles. Kids love games and this would get their energy going. Consider outdoor camping and bike riding and bonfire and barbecue, if you’re short on cash.
You can create a specialized gift basket by adding in their favorite candy or snack, or a new clothing item (sports specific/ teams) and wrapping it all up in tissue or cellophane. This can be low or high cost, depending on what you include in the basket, but it will be a memorable gift.
Kids love funny things. They find gag items hilarious. You can incorporate this humor in the wrapping of your present. Find out a fun, yet cool way to make your present a fun gift to open. Pick the craziest wrapping paper, the funkiest bows, the funniest gag wrapper or token. Try this, it’s for the kids because they will remember it.
