Seven 'Out of The Box' Gift Ideas That Kids Will Love!

My nephew’s birthday is fast approaching, oh how time flies! My niece follows shortly afterwards, and I am already panicking about what to get! So, I thought it would be fab to compile a list of all types of gifts for different types of little ones!

The Ones with a Love for Learning

These kiddies have a passion for learning, shame I can’t say that about my niece and nephew… homework time is always a challenge! However, these educational gift ideas might just be enough to get them learning through having fun. Help expand their geographical knowledge with ‘Who Knows Where? – Global Location Guessing Board Game’ or expand their vocabulary with Bananarama.

If you aren’t looking for a board game but a day out for…

The Ones with A Thirst for New Experiences!

There are so many great days out in the UK that will not only give you something to do but also fill your child’s brain with fantastic knowledge. London is a lively hub for learning with the National Science Museum and Natural History Museum within 5 minutes of each other, however I can’t guarantee that you could do both in one day! The National Science Museum is always super fun with many interactive learning opportunities.

The Ones Wild for Wildlife

Keeping with experiences, why not gift a wild day out? In Brighton we have the sea life centre with a great range of marine life and events for kids and parents alike! Just outside of Brighton, there is Drusilla’s park which boasts a range of wildlife from giant anteaters to llamas. If there isn’t a zoo near you, why not gift a book on their favourite animal or even a poster for their room?

The Ones with Green Fingers

Do you have or know a little one who has a passion for plants and wildlife? Why not gift a baby plant which they can care for and nurture from a seedling! This is a great way to teach them responsibility and how taking care of something can have lovely benefits. If you wanted to get something a little extra, how about a mini green house? This is a great idea for slightly more experienced little ones to have their own space to grow all kinds of plants. Maybe even throw in their very own mini gardening kit!

The Ones Fanatic About Films

Calling all adults with aspirational mini superheroes, I have the perfect gift ideas for you! Cosplay isn’t just for adults, help your little one become their favourite film character with the perfect outfit. If your child is a diehard fan, have a look for any cosplay events around your area to help them even meet their heroes in real life! There are plenty of outfit ideas from full fancy-dress costumes for special occasions to more wearable items like Star Wars shoes for both adults and kids, which can be worn with every day outfits.

On the topic of clothing, here are some ideas for…

The Ones with a Passion for Fashion

Let your little one’s imagination run wild with these trendy gift ideas like a fashion colour books and activity packs. Encourage your little one to embrace their passion! If they aren’t the colouring types, there are plenty of making kits out the to help them make their own jewellery or doll dress up sets where they can be a stylist whenever they want!

The Ones with an Artistic Flair

Much like the kids with a passion for fashion, let your child’s creative streak show with an art kit or a new paint brush set to inspire them to let their inner Van Gogh out! Slime is a recent phenomenon which kids just seem to love and there are plenty of DIY slime kits around which will keep them occupied for hours. I quite like the ideas of windows pens, something that I might even get myself! Great for decorating windows on dreary days to create sunny designs that clean off easily!
