There’s nothing quite as exciting as “present time” for kids. No, we’re not talking about the present tense like all of the mindfulness gurus love to preach. We’re talking about cold, hard gifts—the kind that children go absolutely crazy for when birthdays and holidays arrive. However, it’s not always easy to know what kind of gifts your kid will like—so here are some helpful suggestions.
If your child is going to spend time playing with a toy, why not give them something that’ll help them learn? There are countless educational toys you can give your children, and many of them are even digital online games they can play. Whether it’s physical or digital, an educational gift is a no-brainer.
Another great gift you can give your child is an instrument. The reason an instrument is such a great gift is because it has the perfect balance of being “cool”, while also being educational at the same time. Learning how to play music enhances one’s intelligence, and they’ll only grow from it.
This is a bit of a cop-out, but hey—so many parents neglect to do this. If you really want to know what to get your child, just ask them point-blank. Obviously, this gift will have to go through your vetting process, but assuming it passes the check, your child will be super happy to get it.
