How to Choose Unique Birthday Gifts for Kids

10 min read

Puppies and trips to Disneyland make excellent birthday presents for kids, but if you’re looking to get away with less fur- or finance-related hassle this year around, the list of gifts your child will be thrilled by will be rather limited. Or will it? No, it won’t: in fact, there’s an entire universe of birthday presents out there that will fit both your budget and your kid’s preferences gift-wise.

Make It Cool yet Practical

Birthday gifts that won’t wind up forgotten within a month are those that have practical value to go with aesthetics and entertainment points. Even the coolest board game, Bratz doll, or toy car will quickly lose their appeal, but a present that your child will actually get to use on a daily basis is a gift investment that promises the biggest bang for the birthday buck. A beanbag with your child’s favorite sports team logo or a modular shelving unit with Harry Potter or Narnia book collection will be a lovable gift for the birthday boy or girl that will also amp their room’s functionality, not just its visual interest.

Interactive Games Are In

Most teenage kids these days are armed with smartphones and tablets, so they’ll appreciate a tech-based gift that allows them to have fun and find out cool stuff in the virtual world. That’s where apps dedicated to learning and educational PC games come in. A perfect present that will allow your kid to enhance cognitive skills and play all they want at the same time, interactive gifts such as smartphone or PC learning programs will add tons of fun to your kid’s spare time while nudging their intellectual development onto the right and speedy lane.

A Gift to Get Them Active

If your child is a future couch potato or a high school dropout in the making, birthday is the best moment for you to turn the tables on them with the help of a slyly chosen gift. Ice skates, bike, dancing lessons, or gear for an age-appropriate sport  will make ideal birthday presents that will encourage your child to work on their physical health instead of developing a screen addiction. And if you want to win bonus heart points with your athlete-to-be, you can even team up with them for the sports challenge: that way, you’ll both get to have fun and work on your shape by a single blow. If you want to buy a gift that will last, choose a small tree planted in retro painted designer pots that will make your present look both amazing and interesting. This is an investment that will last their whole life and it will be something that they can consider their own once it is planted in their backyard.

Memberships Do It Nicely

Most small kids are natural learners, and they will leap with joy if offered a chance to get out of the house and explore the world. Sign your little adventurer up for a zoo, science museum, arts workshop, language course, or children’s theater: that way, your mini edition will get to enjoy the fruits of their birthday gift harvest for weeks on end, and you’ll get a few hours of precious parental Me time while they’re discovering the wonders of ready-made entertainment outside the house.

A One-Way Ticket to Fun

Finding a perfect gift for a teenage kid is a tough call, but virtually no teen will go into sulk if you present them with a set of tickets to their favorite band’s concert as a birthday gift. The same goes for movies and theater plays: based on your child’s individual entertainment taste, you can get them tickets to the event they’d love to attend, but be prepared to receive the reward for the awesome present in the form of lots of hugs and kisses.

Finding a unique birthday present for your kid isn’t as tough as it seems: aim for gifts of practical value, look into the kid’s entertainment preferences, buy them a piece of sports gear, or sign them up for an activity that will be beneficial for their physical or cognitive development. After all, if you want your child to grow into a fit and happy adult, their birthday is the best moment to start planting the seeds of their healthy adult life.  Good luck with gift picking!

    If you are planning to give some gifts on the important occasions like Birthday celebrations, Appreciation party to the Kids, then you must go for the Gaming and Gadgets. My opinion is to go for the Gaming Gadgets solution which makes the kids more active and brilliant.

      I couldn’t agree more. Kids these days love their games. But there is always a room for some creative and educational presents.

    my kid always an LEGO lover. Almost all the birthday I buy him a set of new LEGO. But last birthday I gifted him a beanbag which has a design of a LEGO robot. That was pretty cool. So I believe your idea on gifting a beanbag with their favorite sports club logo will be a cool idea
