Gift Ideas for Kids at $20 budget

Gift Ideas for under $20

The recession should not stop us from showing our love to our children. It shouldn't if we learn to adjust our actions and preferences to current circumstances. Our tight budget doesn’t necessarily mean giving worthless gifts. I hope these gift ideas will be useful in finding gift items that will give value to your money.

Blokus Classics Game

Blokus encourages creative thinking and has received a Mensa award for promoting healthy brain activity.  It is also Europe’s 2003 Game of the Year.  This unique board game challenges spatial thinking wherein both adults and kids will surely be engrossed with.  A player who gets all of his tiles on the board gets to win, so strategic thinking is encouraged to block moves from opponents.  This is another avenue for fun family activity or when your child and his friends just want to hangout.

Hasbro Nerf N-Strike Maverick

If you get tired with board games, this is a good alternative. This is excellent for indoor adventure of Father and Son. Unlike that of Maverick’s, this weapon shoots only soft suction darts and adhere to glass surfaces. With its six-dart rotating barrel and easy flip loading, blasting enemy targets is quick. This item received positive customer reviews and high star ratings.

Bakugan Battle Brawlers

I still don’t understand why boys like these stuffs so much.  It has become so popular to ignore when thinking of presents for boys.  So if you have to choose a Bakugan toy, consider Bakugan Battle Brawlers Booster Pack Nova 12/Pyrus Evolution Dragonoid [Red] because this is ultra rare.  It is an Evolved Red Delta Dragonoid II with heavy metal Chrome Ring with random G-Level.  If your son is a Bakugan fanatic, he can explain more about this.  This is one of the many series that boys collect.

Littlest pet Shop 10 pack of Pets

If you are looking for a perfect gift for young pet lovers, this is it! Let them enjoy these ten bobble-head buddies with bonus accessories. The included tote lets your children take their ‘pets’ along with them wherever they go! Included are pets #874, #875, #622, #633, #634, #643, #648, #649, #651 and #654. I was amazed by how little girls (my daughter and her friends) value their connection with these toy pets.

Liv Fashion Doll

If your child wants a doll to add to her collection or wants something more than the usual Barbie features, then Liv Fashion Doll is the answer. Liv Dolls come with a detailed outfit, a long and short wig. Their fully articulated body allows multiple poses. They have ‘real’ eyes and can stand alone. Every doll comes with a unique code that allows girls to enter the Liv World online. There are four Liv Dolls to choose, Daniela, Katie, Sofie and Alexis but only Katie, Sofie and Daniela are priced below $20.
