Avoiding the Eyeroll: Christmas Gift Ideas the Kids will Actually Love

Few things bring parents the same joy as watching their kids tear into brightly colored packages on Christmas morning. While it’s true that it’s the thought that counts, no one wants to be the one handing out gifts that elicit an eye roll and sigh. So, what kinds of gifts will the kids in your life honestly love this Christmas season?
Avoiding the Eyeroll Christmas Gift Ideas the Kids will Actually Love
Gift Cards and Cash
Although it may seem unoriginal, gift cards and cash remain the most popular gifts with teens. It can be hard to guess what your kids want, but if you provide them with their own money, they can pick it out themselves. If you opt for a gift card, choose wisely. Instead of opting for something practical like a clothing store, most will prefer a gift cards to a place they can choose something media or entertainment based.

Cater to Their Interests

If your kids love their dance classes, show your support and encouragement by getting gifts that speak to their talents and interests like a new pair of shoes or performance costume. For your adrenaline junkie, try a new pair of biking gloves or kneepads. You can find lots of coupons for Competitive Cyclist gear or other stores on sites like discountrue. Showing your kids you pay attention and appreciate their passions and pursuits will give them a boost in confidence!
Video Games and Apps
In a technology driven society, video games and apps are the most popular gift items. Ask kids which they have their eyes on. You can either purchase it yourself, or gift them a coupon or voucher for it.

Gift an Experience
Do you know a kid that would love to play paint ball with a group of friends? How about bowling, roller skating, a baseball game, swim lessons, or a trip to the science museum? Often kids have plenty of “stuff”, and really don’t need more of the same. Consider gifting an activity they might enjoy. It could be a one-time activity, such as laser tag with friends, or a professional sporting event, or something that would benefit them throughout the year, like swimming lessons or a pass to a local zoo. Do your best to match your kid’s interests and personality to the activity you choose.

Especially for little ones, opening an experience is less exciting. Give a small gift that goes along with it. For example, if you got a family pass to visit an aquarium, give the kid a small stuffed sea animal toy to open Christmas morning.

Choosing the right gift to please all the kids can be a daunting task, depending on their ages and personalities. Try to put some thought into it, and choose accordingly. Do your best to match your kid’s interests with a fun and unique gift.
