Shopping Smart – Top Holiday Gifts by Age Category
Finding the right holiday gift is never easy, and shopping for certain people can be downright daunting. The perfect holiday gift should be a reflection of the taste, style and individuality of the recipient. At the same time, the gift you choose needs to fit within your budget. Making it all work can sometimes be difficult, but there are some things you can do to make it easier.
Seeking out information on the most popular gifts for various age categories is a good place to start. These lists are detailed enough so you can avoid giving generic gifts. At the same time, they can give you a good place to start and help you find gift ideas that are perfect for everyone on your list.
The Youngest Recipients
Shopping for babies, toddlers and young children is always a lot of fun. There are plenty of choices, and the bright colors and unique designs just make you smile.
When it comes to choosing a gift for the youngest recipients, crib toys, activity mats and learning toys are always great choices. At this age you can always ask the parents what their children need - making the shopping even easier.
Ride-on toys can be a great choice for older kids - children in the 4-10 age range. These kids are exploring their freedom and learning to be more independent, and having their own set of wheels means a lot. For older kids, you might want to consider a bike as a Christmas gift. Even if they cannot ride it until spring, they can still have lots of fun practicing their skills in an enclosed garage or other safe space.
Tweens and Teens
Tweens and teens can be particularly hard to buy for, but it does not have to be that way. There are some great gift ideas that will light up their eyes on Christmas morning and give them plenty to do for the rest of the year.
Science kits are wonderful learning tools for those in this age range. Whether you give a chemistry set, a planetarium kit or a botany experiment, you will spark their curiosity. There are even kits that tweens and teens can use to build their own robots.
Young adults can be quite hard to buy for, but the more you know about the recipients on your list the easier your job will be. If you are shopping for a young college student, you might find that cold hard cash is the thing they need most. If you do not want to give cash, consider a Visa-branded gift card or a gift card for a local store.
If your gift recipient recently moved into a new home, they might appreciate practical gifts like cookware and home furnishings. If you do not know what to pick, you can always give a gift card for an upscale home goods store.
By the time they are older, most of us have the basics. We have a good set of cookware, attractive home furnishings and plenty of decorative items. That can make gift giving a challenge, but rest assured - we never outgrow our love of the holidays, or our love of Christmas presents.
Electronic gadgets and gizmos are often great choices for people in this age range. The older adults in your life might not think to buy the latest iPad or tablet computer, but chances are they would appreciate the ability to connect with far-off friends and loved ones.
Gift baskets are also great choices for older adults and others who are hard to buy for. You can customize a gift basket for anyone on your gift list - from the fishing enthusiast to the movie buff. By the time you are done, you will have a wonderful gift that everyone on your gift list will love.
