The Best Birthday Party Presents

It will be your child’s birthday soon! You, as a parent knows that it is time for you to plan a great birthday party. Most parents would know what to do for their child’s birthday: Set a date, look for venue, catering, guests list, etc. Those are pretty standard stuff that you will know.

However, I believe that one of the most important aspect of a birthday is the present. After all, that is something that your child would most likely wish for and it will be something that they will treasure. So, I suggest that you put in extra considerations when you want to buy a birthday present for your child. You can buy the present yourself, or you can put it in the ‘She likes XYZ” in the invitation cards.

So what are some of the presents that your child would like? Here are some suggestions:

Boys - Boys will be boys. They will love action stuff like shooters and things on wheels. Some ideas would include slyroform shooters and toy cars. If you have a big area at home, a bicycle will be good ideas too.

Girls - Girls will prefer things that will make them pretty, although there are girls who likes wheels and shooters. In general, a toy make-up set and dresses will be great as presents for them.

What not to give – Try not to give educational items like assessment books or the boring dictionary! I know there are some children who may want these but they can be exceptional. I do have a neighbor where their 7 years old boy wanted to read unabridged version of the “Golden Compass” novel that is 300+ pages thick! Educational toys are fine, but anything that is too ‘study’ like will not be recommended.

Other ideas – There are items that are suitable for both gender. If they are above 9 years old, the items could include skates, basketball set and Nintendo DS. For younger children between 6-8 years old, they can have Lego set and Game Boy. For the children younger than 5 years old, they can have mini bikes and cars.

There are many ideas for a perfect birthday present, I would recommend that you try get your kids to giant toy stores and see what catches their eyes. Once you know, you can surprise them with the gift! If you want to be on the safer side, you can ask your child to look and select the present that they want. In that way, the children can also have the excitement of waiting for the gift that they want.
