3 Birthday Gifts That Your Kids Will Love

If your child has a special birthday coming up, you may be at a loss as to what to buy them. You want it to be something special, not just the usual stuffed toys, colouring books or Disney DVDs. You want this birthday to be one that they remember, so you need to find a present that’s going to surprise as well as excite them. Well, never fear because we’ve scoured the toy shops and the internet and done all the hard work for you. So, to ensure you give your children a birthday they never forgot, all you have to do is read on…

1. Dolls
Porcelain dolls are just as popular now as they were in the nineteenth century, when Germany first started producing them. This gift isn’t appropriate for younger children. However, for a girl who’s reaching double figures, hand-painted porcelain princess dolls really do make the ideal gift.

2. Personalised Story Book
Personalised story books make fantastic gifts, and are a great way of getting their imaginations fired up. There are lots of companies that will personalise your child’s favourite story book for you, by making them a character in the story. So, if your child’s favourite book happens to be ‘Peter Pan’, a personalised version will allow them to become part of the adventure themselves. This is a great way to encourage reading, and get children excited about books. You never know, you may even inspire them to become the next J K Rowling!

3. Name a Star After Them
What kid hasn’t dreamed about being an astronaut at one time, or another? So, why not show your kids just how much they light up your life by naming a star after them? It’s a great way to pique their interest in the universe. Usually, included in the gift set is lots of helpful information on the history of stars and constellations. You’ll also be given the exact coordinates of your star, to enable you to find it on a map. This gives you the opportunity to inject a little fun into educating them about the planets and outer space. Your child will love the idea of a star bearing their name shining up in the night sky for all eternity. It’s something you can enjoy every night, for years to come, no matter where in the world you happen to be.  

Whatever option you decide on, the most important thing is that your gift reflects the special bond that you and your child share. It doesn’t matter how much you spend, the only thing that matters is that your gift is given with love and that it’s something you can enjoy together. Giving children our time and focus is far more important than spending lots of money. In years to come it won’t be the gift they remember, it’ll be the time you spent playing with them. After all, if your kids are anything like mine, they’ll probably just end up playing with the box anyway!
