What Makes A Perfect Christmas Toy Gift?
Many of us fondly look back on childhood Christmas memories, reminiscing about leaving treats for Santa and his reindeer and eagerly opening presents (very early) the next morning.
Each year, people scramble to find ‘the perfect’ Christmas gift for the loved ones in their life, including kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews. Unfortunately, shopping for children isn’t always easy — they grow up so fast, and their interests seem to change just as quickly.
In reality, you’re never going to find the perfect Christmas gift. But by thinking carefully about your gift choice and how it will impact both the recipient and the world around them, you’re well on the way to making the right decision.
Why Buy Christmas Presents For Your Kids?
While it may seem like an expensive and time-consuming task, buying Christmas presents for your children can positively impact their development. The act of gift-giving fosters essential social skills, such as communication, empathy, and generosity.
Buying practical, eco-friendly Christmas gifts that can be passed down through the family also teaches the importance of sustainability and making decisions that are good for the environment.
Of course, gift-giving isn’t just a teaching opportunity. Seeing the happiness on their faces as they tear open their presents is priceless and will form precious memories to look back on in the years to come.
How To Decide What Christmas Toy To Buy For Your Kids
Purchasing Christmas presents for your kids doesn’t have to be a long or arduous process. By following a few simple steps, you’ll find the perfect gift in no time at all.
To start with, consider the age of your child. Kids grow up so fast, but that doesn’t mean you should buy Christmas presents that they can ‘grow into’ — once unwrapped on Christmas morning, they’ll want to play with their gifts right away! Check the age guidelines and always buy a present targeted towards their stage of development.
Next, think about their hobbies and interests. If your child loves helping out in the kitchen, for example, consider our Tender Leaf Toys — La Fiamma Grand Kitchen set. Complete with a range of accessories, including wooden ingredients, utensils, and more, it’s the perfect gift for a budding chef.
You might also want to consider an educational toy or a gift that will teach them important skills or more about the world around them. This type of present doesn’t have to be boring. Take, for example, the Kapla Challenge. This educational construction toy will teach important cognition and hand-eye coordination skills, developing concentration, creativity, patience, and perseverance.
Finally, consider the element of sustainability. These days, there are few things more important than consciously buying products made from eco-friendly materials that will last for years. With that in mind, the decision to shop at Alex and Moo is an easy one!
Doll is as described, her hair covers the implant a bit much but that is a design thing & I can cut it so that my cochlear implant wearing 2 year old can see that her doll wears a processor too - and doesn’t take it off! Thank you for making these available.
These plates are fantastic! We use them all the time - for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The colours are gorgeous and fun. The quality is high - easy to clean in the dishwasher too.
We love these little soft dolls which we all call "sisters"
Well made and so soft - really beautiful
These are delightful soft dolls (which we have called sisters) and to have the Organic Cotton Doll Carrier adds so much to my granddaughter's (and my) play each weekend. We love them!
I would like to say what wonderful service I received from Alex and Moo and am very happy to have dealt with your company. So far I haven’t seen the erected bike but look forward to seeing my little one enjoying her birthday present.
Products are great and delivery was really quick.
Love these wooden toys, previously bought the ice cream cart and it is still a favourite toy
My two grand children love these cups for their morning smoothies when they come to visit Nanny
Very happy will be ordering more
Interesting and activities useful for curious children
With the original 6 pack, there were two cups slightly smaller and made different around the rims. My daughter in law noticed this. I did send a message but no reply as to why this was being in a set of 6. In addition I brought an extra 2 cups to match the 8 plates I akk K do brought. I’m very happy with these products but really thought someone could have acknowledged my original question as to why 2 cups in a sold set of 6, were obviously made different.
Great quality. Will purchase more again soon
Awesome little dummy's, great quality and a much cuter natural rubber option than the little orange ones you can get. The colours and cute little shapes cut out around the mouth piece are just adorable and suit every outfit. Not to mention bub loves them, the Orthodontic Teat is slightly more exaggerated than a normal one which I think is making it easier for bub to keep in her mouth without dropping. Overall 5 stars - can't beat 0% toxins with 100% cuteness.
Couldn’t be more happy. Free delivery and quick. Trike arrived on time. The crate was a great addition and so was the personalised name plate.
This was for my grandsons 1st birthday and he absolutely loves it! He’s not a big kid and I was a bit concerned it may be too big for a while but it’s perfect. He can get on and off of it with ease and was so proud of himself in front of his little friends. Would happily recommend this for any small child. Love the fact the shipping was free and quick so it arrived in plenty of time.
