Buying Christmas gifts for kids

Updated on October 25, 2016

Divide and Conquer

The buying of Christmas gifts for kids requires us to break the children's gifts into categories of age, and sex. After all what is appropriate for a 15 year old could be deadly to a 3 year old. And not many boys want the latest Barbie! So with that in mind, I've created some suggestions for each category.

Please note; I've reserved toddlers and most teens for later hubs.

The 5-7 Year olds

These active little curious people are blessedly unaware of the dangers surrounding them! They need protection while allowing them to explore the world they live in! So nothing small, sharp, or with exposed mechanical movement.

He'll fall in love with this!

8 – 11 Years Old

These are heavily peer motivated! They'll probable want what all their friends want.I'm not sure what is currently popular with this group, but I bet they'll be pleasantly suprised when they open these!

Fun for the little ladies

12-15 years old

Children this age feel so "grown-up"! They'll likely want something that makes them feel a bit adult, while still allowing for some play time. Your choices will be a bit lopsided as girls at this age tend to be a bit more mature than the boys.

What about you
