When your friends have a child that you want to buy a gift for, there are many things that they might like. You will want to get them something that they will use and get plenty of enjoyment out of it, rather than ending up in the back of a cupboard and rarely, if ever, getting used. If you are looking to buy a child’s gift and are looking for inspiration, below are a few gift ideas suitable for both girls and boys and be something they would like to receive.
Let Them Create With Lego
Lego is an excellent gift, and there is something to suit all ages, from toddlers up to adults, as there are many options with the different kits you can buy. You can choose one of the Lego Creator sets that are available or opt for one of the themed sets linked to superheroes and movie franchises such as:
- Lego Star Wars
- Lego Marvel
- Lego Harry Potter
- Lego Disney
- Lego Mickey Mouse & Friends
- Lego Lord Of The Rings
If your friend’s child loves Lego, this may be an excellent gift that they will get hours of enjoyment from but ensure they do not have the set you are planning to buy before you get it.
An Electric Scoter & Safety Equipment
You see many people whizzing around on scooters nowadays, and what once was a simple children’s toy has grown into so much more. You can consider getting a child’s version of an electric scooter and ensure you get all the safety gear as well, including:
- Elbow Pads
- Knee Pads
- Shin Pads
Ask the parents what safety gear they already have so you do not double up, or you can get them a matching set that has everything they will need. They will have hours of fun zipping about on their electric scooter, but you must ensure they know how to use it safely.
A VR Headset
Whether the child is heavily into gaming or not, getting a VR headset will be something they love and will get plenty of use. They can explore new worlds in virtual reality and play with their friends online in a wide selection of different games. The Oculus Quest 2 is an excellent device you can get, and all the games are loaded onto the headset, so it does not need a separate games console or computer. You will need to ensure they have plenty of space to use it, as things can get wild when exploring new worlds in VR, but it is a gift the entire family can use and experience.
