The Top 5 Christmas Gifts For Kids

The Top 5 Christmas Gifts For Kids

Now that the holidays going, here is a guide to point you in the right direction for Christmas gifts!

Razor Scooter:

These scooters have been hot for the last few years. Kids love to ride them around the house, to their friend’s house, and a few like to play tricks on them. The sleek sliver scooter made by Razor is still the most popular model. Scooters are easier than a bike for children to pick up, since it requires less balance. Even toddlers can use them!

Razor makes a Jr. sized scooter that has a second back wheel, giving the scooter enough stability for young ones. Radio Flyer also makes a scooter for tots, but with a second wheel in front rather than in back. The scooters are adjustable, so they actually grow with your child. These are also much cheaper than a bike! Scooters typically run from about $30-80, depending on model and size.

Dress up clothes:

Dress up clothes are great for both boys and girls! Boys aren’t interested in the princess costumes like girls are, but they enjoy dressing up like firefighters, lions, and ninjas. Dress up clothes encourage imagination and creative play, and are one of those toys that don’t get “old.” Many home-school organizations use dress ups to teach about other cultures and for free play time. Girls love to wear princess costumes, and dance around. If you decide to get dress up clothes as a Christmas gift, don’t forget the accessories! Girls need feather boas for their princess costumes and boys need toy guns for their cowboy costumes!

Nintendo DS:

The lite Nintendo DS is making big waves with children right now. With simple games for tots, Hannah Montana games for the girls, and racing games for the boys, the DS is a great toy for everyone. While this is a more expensive present, it is one that will last for a long time! Many parents feel that the Nintendo DS is a great investment, since it is a great travelling toy for kids to carry with them.

Legos:

Legos don’t get old or expire. Plus, there are so many variations of Legos that you can always give a child an expansion to their Lego set. There are pirate ships, animals, airplanes, cars, castles, and the list goes on and on. Lego even created a “pink brick” set for girls, with Lego accessories designed just for girls! Jumbo and soft blocks are great for tots and babies, while the smaller, more detailed Legos give more creative options for older children.

Clothes:

Here is a semi-responsible present to give children. It seems that kids shuffle through clothes so quickly, it’s difficult to find a time that they don’t need more clothes! Back to school clothes are starting to get a little more worn, the seasons have changed, and more often than not the kids have outgrown their Christmas dresses and dress clothes.

Girls probably need a new Christmas dress for the season, and boys might need a new tie and slacks. New pajamas on Christmas Eve are a family tradition for my family; we all enjoy sleeping in new pajamas and waking up in them on Christmas morning. Regardless of what you purchase, clothes are one of those “necessities” that typically people like to receive!
