Give the kids something different for their next birthday.

Monday, 3 December 2018

Struggling to find the perfect birthday present for your little ones? 

Why not try something they can’t break or get bored of after a few days? 

Something which won’t leave them glued to a screen or keep them cooped up indoors all day, possibly even something the while family can enjoy.

Here are some ideas I have put together for you.

Ticket to an event

Does your child enjoy listening to music?  Singing along to their favourite song? How about giving your child their first real experience at a concert, a play or a show? 
Let their love for music/dance/performing grow; watch them find inspiration by the uplifting atmosphere, you can find out who’s on tour by visiting sites like Ticketmaster.

Magazine subscriptions

Why not give your child a monthly subscription to their favourite magazine? Allow them to learn more about their favourite hobby, whether it’s an interest in cars or a particular sport etc. Give them the excitement of receiving an envelope with their name on every month, allowing them to feel grown up. 

Classes

Does your child dream of being the next Olympic athlete? How about the future winner of the Grand National? Or how about the next famous Popstar? Classes in skills such as horse riding, singing and dancing give your child the opportunity to improve their ability and become the best they can be. Allow them to feel part of something, enabling them to build friendships which will last a lifetime. 

Outdoor play equipment

Remember the days, when playing at the local park was the only thing on our minds after school or at the weekend? If not the park then riding your bike or flying a kite in a field, everything we did was outside! These between the lack of green space available and trying to keep our Children safe, they don't spend anywhere near as much time outside as they should.



Keep them safe and healthy by installing some outdoor play equipment in your own garden. Hours of fun to be had and plenty of friends coming around to visit no doubt - money well spent!

Musical Instruments

Why not a piano to go with those piano lessons you bought at Christmas? Or a guitar, or a set of drums? Encourage your little one to practice each week and improve their skill. Let them express themselves in a different way, one which they can go to school the next day and show off their improved skill. 

A Piggy bank

Receiving a piggy bank gives your child a sense of independence and responsibility in learning to save and manage money. Why not let your children choose a toy which they have to pay for, encouraging them to save up for it? This gives them a chance to feel like a grown up and will benefit them in future.

Memberships

Why not something which could last the whole year. Does your little one share the same dream as most other kids? To have their own Gorilla? Tiger? Giraffe? Or maybe an Elephant, Rhino or Cheetah? Their are many different adoption packages available now.

These help teach your child responsibility as well as often coming with a cuddly version of the animal and regular updates.

Days out

How about a day out, doing an activity they’ll love? The options are endless, for example, swimming, bowling, skating, have a picnic at the park or go on a bike ride. Being able to create great memories really is priceless.

I hope I have given you some inspiration!
