Birthday Gifts Your
Kids Will Love
Everyone loves a special gift on their birthday: especially
I have put together a list of 10 memorable gifts
you can gift your children on their birthday without breaking
Art supplies: almost all kids enjoy crayons, markers,
stickers, colored pencils, gel pens, special papers and scissors,
sidewalk chalk, water colors, homemade rubber stamps, "how
to draw" books calligraphy instructions, or origami instructions
and colored paper.
An art supply gift not only encourages
the youngsters to use their imagination, but it can be an
extra treat when you spend time with them using them.
Books are always great gifts for any age: you can
get musical or squeaky books for the little ones, short stories
for preschoolers, adventure books for 9-11 year olds, and
so on: there is a book for every taste. You can also buy books
about your child's interests, books about careers, etc.
A classic movie, which never goes out of style, great
for when friends come over, or on that day when they are bored
and nothing else could help.
For older boys, a tool kit would be great: gives them
the opportunity to work side by side with Dad, and possibly
learn a life skill.
For older girls, beads could mean hours of fun. Buy
a variety of colors and shapes and watch your little princess
enjoy hours of happiness.
To the gourmand give a roll of sugar cookie dough
from the grocery store, along with a couple of cookie cutters,
and a rolling pin. Again, this would be a lot of fun for the
little one to make, and share with friends and family.
For the nature lover, a gardening kit with a couple
of small pots filled with potting soil, some seeds, and a
plastic watering can give countless hours of fun, while caring
for the plants, and watching them grow.
A disposable camera will add a boost to the party.
If your budget permits, add a small picture album, and you've
instantly created wonderful memories of that birthday.
A basket of fun: find an inexpensive basket, or another
container, maybe a pail for kids and fill it with fun, cheap
stuff. For instance, silly putty, a water gun, a deck of cards,
sidewalk chalk, etc. For boys, you can add some little cars
and for girls, throw in some hair accessories.
Finish it off
with some candy or a pez dispenser and you have a fun gift.
If you find some fun, small things that most kids think are
neat, pick up a bunch so that at any time you have a supply
of items to mix and match for a birthday.
Children crave attention from important people in their lives,
(mom, dad, grandparent, aunt, older sibling). Give that special
child the gift of time: a day out with you complete
with lunch, a movie, and/or shopping for the gift of their
choice. (Editor's note: You can design a little IOU gift coupon to present your gift of time and enclose it in a gift card holder or special birthday card.)
