Children are sometimes picky about the gifts that they receive for birthdays and holidays. The best gifts for children are those that can be personalised. These types of gifts will be cherished more than ordinary toys and they can be unique depending on the age of the child.
Zero to Three Years
At this age children are not very interested in the type of gift they receive. They are more interested in playing with boxes and paper. Lights capture their eyes as well during the Christmas season and bunnies are fun to play with at Easter. For parents this is the age where memories are made.
Personalised gifts for kids are a unique way to capture the young moments in a childs life and to treasure them for years to come. Children can go back and look at the special gift they received as a baby or toddler and hand it down to their own children. Piggy banks are a great idea for little ones so parents can start a savings for them. Piggy banks can be made to be unique by getting them painted in a favourite colour or even to match the theme of their nursery. Names can be added to piggy banks to make them extra special. Other unique gifts that can be treasured are blankets with a favourite animal or a hope chest to collect mementos through the childs life.
Four to Ten Years
Children in their middle years are more perceptive to what they receive as gifts. They begin to notice the type of toys they receive and start to make requests of what they want. This is a good age for parents and other gift givers to make gifts unique in a way that the gift can be used by the child. Girls enjoy jewellery boxes and these are easy to make personalised gifts for kids. Favourite colours are being decided by children that can be used to paint plaques for pictures and other decorations. Boys will enjoy sporting equipment with their name on it or with their favourite sports team.
Ten to Teenage Years
This is probably the hardest age to give a gift to. Most teenagers know what they want and if they dont receive it they are upset. Gifts that are unique are hard to find but they will mean more to them at this age. Bibles are a special gift for this age because the name can be put on the front of the Bible and then they can start recording special events. Scrapbooks are unique ideas that as children get older pictures and more pages can be added to. Picture frames can be designed to match the childs personality and again more pictures can be added or switched out for different pictures through the childs lifetime. There are many ideas for unique gifts for children from birth to adulthood if the imagination is used.
Have fun shopping for your kids and make their occasion with a great personalised gift
