Whoa! Do not panic! It isn’t holiday season yet. But we thought; why not help our beloved readers get ready with amazing gifts for their folks well in advance? Not a bad idea, huh? So, let’s get started.
Whether you’ve already started planning or are unable to take out time to plan for presents; one thing’s for sure, gifting is not for the faint hearted. And given today’s times of endless varieties, choosing the most perfect gift for every member of your family as well as friends has become even more confusing. However, nothing compares to the tiring quest that is finding a great gift for little ones! So, are there any thumb rules one can go by to solve this mystery? Well, there aren’t. But we do have some interesting ideas! Here are some helpful tips that have been specially curated age-wise to guide you towards becoming the best in the eyes of toddlers, children and teens this merry season:
1 – 5 Years Old
Aah! The cuddly and heart-melting time of infancy. Babies and toddlers may be the easiest to choose presents for as they are still developing the concept of “liking” and “disliking”. But that doesn’t mean that we can skip paying attention to detail. Na-huh! Little ones need toys that are brightly coloured and graspable. In addition, these must be soft to the touch and definitely not small enough to choke on since that is a big risk for babies. Be sure that your gift does not have any hangings, adornments or pompoms that can be easily detached and swallowed. Go for squishy and attention grabbing items like this Multi Colour Watermelon Design Squishy Toy (this is perfect for teething babies as well.) or our Lavender and Pink Colour Unicorn by Keel Toys that is ideal for 3 to 5 year olds and assures long-lasting colour with no choking-hazards for adornments. When it comes to babies and curious toddlers who love to get a hold of everything and anything around them, items that are smoothly-finished and squeezable would be perfect. Also, don’t forget to check out our collection of adorable toys for more options.
6 – 12 Years Old
Wouldn’t you agree that children between the ages of 6 and 12 years are smarter and much more active than toddlers? Nevertheless, if there are some around you and in your “gifting” list, they are highly likely to have developed a very monochromatic taste for things. They will like something or dislike it. There is nothing in between. So, what could be the most ideal present for these mischievous little ones? A teddy bear! You can never go wrong with a stuffed animal. Check out this super cute Pipp Bear with Onesie that looks unique with the addition of a fluffy and furry lion-inspired onesie, something that is certain to evoke happiness and amazement amongst kids. Another good choice would be our Koala Soft Toy with Supersoft Printed Flannel Blanket which is a fantastic duo of a cute , cuddly and kids’ favourite Koala toy and a heavenly cosy flannel blanket in the same colour combination. Is your kiddo fascinated with automobiles? Then this fun 4 Channel Quadcopter with Remote Control is exactly what they deserve these holidays. Another product that is classic and ideal for children’s cognizance and healthy mental development is a money bank. Start them young and teach them how fruitful money-saving can be with a cute, attractive, colourful and aptly sized piggy bank like this Lady Bug Shape Money Bank. It will not only help them learn the importance of money but also help them learn the basics of math in an amusing way.
Admit it; teenage is the most confusing ages of them all! Isn’t it? Kids this age tend to be rebellious and deathly afraid of embarrassment. So, how does one select the perfect gift for them? Well, most teen girls love looking good and attractive. Furthermore; regular trips to school, arcades and house-parties elevate the need to look distinct and engaging. We suggest you go for a set of bright and flattering nail-paint-set or a convenient make-up pallete. Beauty essentials like nail-paints (check out our fantastic range from MAVALA.), eyeshadow palletes and even a beginners’ nail-care kit will be ideal for your favourite little diva. If you are looking for something more valuable and are ready to spend a little extra, our exclusive range of perfumes will serve you just fine. Expedient and practical items like storage boxes or jewellery organizers would be great choices as well.
When it comes to teen boys; portable and useful items like a device organizer that can hold a watch, USB wires, connectors, IPod, earphones and more would be an excellent selection. Given that most boys this age are actively involved in sports; a tough, water-resistant and anti-tarnish wrist watch would be a blessing for them. A trendy Skeleton Watch for special occasions wouldn’t be a bad choice either.
Know someone who is a huge movie-buff? More specifically, a Harry Potter fan? Then check out this amazingly realistic looking Harry Potter Mystery Flying Snitch. We dare you to stop yourself from feeling like everyone’s favourite Gryffindor Seeker as you switch it on and its wings flap realistically. Perfect for people who love throwing themed parties, this would make a great present for Halloween. Just a glimpse of it is enough to make one picture themself on a broomstick in Hogwart’s Quidditch arena. Gift it to a Potterhead and witness elation like never before.
Don’t we all love presenting a loved one with an offering and seeing insurmountable happiness and surprise on their faces? It gives us the satisfaction that somehow; we have managed to show our love, gratitude and admiration with a fondly selected object. No wonder we tend to put in extra efforts in finding the most fitting present for them and that, can be quite hard and exasperating. Take liberal help from this specially crafted holiday gifting-guide and we promise, you’ll be a star in your family these holidays. You’re welcome!
