What cool presents parents can buy their kids

Cool presents to buy for kids

We all know kids get super excited on special events and holidays. This is especially true if it is an event where they are expecting presents. Whether it is Christmas or their birthday, they just cannot wait to see what you have bought them.   While you can always ask your kids what they want for these occasions, it does take away the element of surprise. But are you struggling to think of the perfect present? 

In this post, we will walk through a few fun and stylish gift ideas that are sure to be a fantastic surprise present.

  • A Scooter

One of the most requested gifts from a kid is a shiny, new bike. However, many children, especially younger ones, don’t have the balance to ride successfully.

So, why not gift them a 3 wheel scooter and make your little one the happiest kid in the world! Scooters are great for those not old enough to ride a bike, and nothing is easier to balance on then a 3 wheel scooter variant. 

Today’s kids might be crazy about Netflix, iPhones, and video games, but stylish scooters are the perfect way to encourage your children to get active outdoors. Scooters (and bikes) give them the freedom they may be needing. It is a wonderful way to get your kids to go out, hang out with their friends, and enjoy an adventurous ride, rather than playing video games all day.

A scooter is all they need to explore new places, creating fun memories that they will remember for years. Gifting a scooter to your child might not be a unique idea at first, but with all the styles and types now available, a scooter may end up being a bigger surprise than you think!

  • Binoculars

A pair of binoculars is likely not a present you would associate with fun. However, toy binoculars can generate a lot of fun and are durable too. Your kid will love using binoculars in spy games, and other make believe. They play being the secret agent, using a pair of binoculars to investigate crimes. 

Additionally, they can use binoculars to track an airplane or watch the birds sing and play in your neighborhood. Being a rather unique present, they are also cost effective.

  • A Piggy Bank

Do you want your child to know the value of savings? A piggy bank makes for a fantastic gift then. Piggy banks are available in a broad range of styles and colors, as well as shapes and sizes.  Choose a piggy bank that your kids can associate with and become their bedroom companion. 

  • A Personal Diary

Research suggests that girls are more expressive than boys. They love to share their opinions and emotions. Although, it can be hard for them to share their thoughts in front of people. So, why not give them the private space they need by gifting a personal diary? 

Choose a diary with your kid’s favorite cartoon theme or color. As kids grow up, they face a multitude of emotions that they might not be comfortable to share with their families or friends. This is why a diary can be an amazing tool in helping them cope with their feelings.

  • Kids’ Graphic Tees

Kids are constantly growing out of their clothes, so they always need new ones. Clothes as gifts are always a good idea. These cool graphic tees designed by Threadheads artists and the League of Extraordinary Artists make for awesome gifts during the holidays, birthdays, and special events. You can choose from a wide variety of amazing designs, as well. Geeky tees, retro tees, cute tees, statement tees, and Japanese pop culture tees—you name it; they have it. Best of all, these are made from ethically sourced combed cotton, so not only are they supercomfortable, but they’re also guilt-free.

  • Streaming Subscription

In today’s internet-driven world, nothing could excite your kid more than the subscription to their favorite streaming platforms. You can buy your kids a one-month subscription for any popular streaming subscription from Netflix to Disney+. 

Choose the genre they like to watch the most (most likely the cartoons channel) and help them find new favorite shows or movies

Just remember to enforce time to go outside and be active. While a streaming subscription is a popular gift, you do not want your kids spending all the time in front of a screen.

  • Toys 

You can’t go wrong with toys, but how about can you narrow it down when the selection and options are so vast! Well, I have done it for you. I asked my pair to come up with the top 5 picks for this year. For reference my kids are almost 9 and 6.

  • RC stunt car I mean you can’t go wrong with a remote control stunt car. This pick is a much more modern and cool take on the stunt car and comes with at a very reasonable price point.
  • RC racing car the nearly 9 year old is really taken with the remote control racing car. I have to admit it is very cool, its a level up on the stunt car in terms of pricing but looks like a great option for the older kids .
  • RC robot both kids fell for this robot and at £19.99 this is very good value.  This looks very cool and would make a lovely birthday gift.
  • RC Dinosaur my youngest is dino made so this is right up his street, I mean what’s not to love about a remote control dinosaur. At £59.99 it is at the pricer side of our picks but it comes loaded with functionality and hours of play.
  • Robot Dog a cheaper option than the dino is the robot dog. I was telling the kids I had a robot dog as a kid and they roared laughing, ok not as tech advanced as this one but it was one cool toy for its time. This is very cool and reasonably priced for what it does and would be a really lovely gift for Christmas or birthday.#


  • Musical Instrument

Not all children are interested in music. However, most kids love toy musical instruments, especially a piano. Whether you are celebrating their birthday or enjoying Christmas with your family, a musical instrument makes a wonderful gift idea for the young ones.

Buy them a toy piano and guitar and allow them to play their favorite song. Even if they are not interested in music, they will love to experiment with these instruments. 

Plus, it may foster them learning the real instrument later in life.

  • Room Décor Materials

A less-known fact about children is that they love to decorate their rooms. Haven’t you seen your little ones trying to paint their bedroom walls with their favorite sketch color?

 If you want to buy your kids something unique and interesting, then room décor materials can be a great idea.

Provide them with photo frames that they can hang on their room walls and help them find their favorite pictures. Other room décor ideas are wall stickers, cute mugs, fridge magnet, Disney characters, and more. Let them decorate the room the way they want to make it truly theirs (but do not forget to still supervise!)
