birth­day gifts

What to give a child for his birthday?

The long-await­ed hol­i­day of all chil­dren — birth­day, is always asso­ci­at­ed with the expec­ta­tion of a mir­a­cle, sur­pris­es. Car­ing par­ents pre­pare in advance for this excit­ing day and solve var­i­ous issues relat­ed to its orga­ni­za­tion. What gift to choose for your beloved child is the main one among them.

Unusual gifts

Such gifts are pre­pared by par­ents who them­selves have not yet for­got­ten how to feel like chil­dren. If you show imag­i­na­tion, you can pre­pare an orig­i­nal birth­day present for a child. These gifts can be made with your own hands or ordered in a spe­cial­ized salon.

  • In pho­to salons now there is a ser­vice of print­ing pho­tos on your favorite lit­tle thing. It can be a mug, a plate, a T‑shirt, a pil­low and many oth­er lit­tle things.
  • You can also make a pho­to col­lage of the birth­day boy your­self or order in the same pho­to stu­dio. A col­lage can be made with a descrip­tion of the main events in the child’s life or achieve­ments if he is fond of sports or cre­ativ­i­ty. A col­lage with a cal­en­dar is suit­able for get­ting to know the months for a lit­tle birth­day boy or for plan­ning the activ­i­ties of a school-age child.
  • Mount a col­or­ful video from a pho­to or video of a child about him. More­over, there are now a lot of pro­grams for pho­to and video edit­ing, as ll as train­ing videos.
  • Write a real book, where your birth­day boy is the main char­ac­ter, and dec­o­rate it beau­ti­ful­ly (pos­si­bly with his pho­tographs).
  • For many chil­dren, a pho­to­graph of his idol with a per­son­al sig­na­ture will be a mem­o­rable gift. Order such a pho­to via the Inter­net, and the gift is ready.

An inter­est­ing way of hold­ing a hol­i­day can also become an unusu­al and mem­o­rable birth­day present for chil­dren. It can be quests, theme par­ties orga­nized inde­pen­dent­ly or with the invi­ta­tion of ani­ma­tors. Going to the cir­cus, aquar­i­um, to the con­cert of your favorite artist will also be a pleas­ant sur­prise if the child has long dreamed about it.

Dear presents

When choos­ing expen­sive gifts, you should first focus on the age of the child.

For very young chil­dren, valu­able gifts, such as elec­tron­ic gad­gets and robots, often do not make sense, as they are easy to break. Emo­tions, joy from a gift are impor­tant for a child. At the same time, the desire of adults to give some­thing more sub­stan­tial is under­stand­able. In this case, some donors will first find out from their par­ents what, in addi­tion to toys, the birth­day per­son needs, and give the child some mem­o­rable sur­prise, and par­ents — mon­ey in an enve­lope.

A lucky sur­prise should be:

  • bright and col­or­ful;
  • so that every­one can play with it togeth­er;
  • car­ry­ing good mean­ing.

For exam­ple, a ted­dy bear with heli­um bal­loons, “which brings hap­pi­ness.” The kids hap­pi­ly play with bal­loons, and the bear becomes the favorite toy of the lit­tle birth­day boy.

Old­er chil­dren have their own inter­ests and hob­bies. And here, in order to guess with a gift, it is worth con­sult­ing with his par­ents: what he likes and what is suit­able for his age. Per­haps the child is dili­gent and will patient­ly observe or care­ful­ly exam­ine an expen­sive gift, or maybe he is a fid­get and will instant­ly take it apart for parts. Here you can also find out from par­ents about their plans for a large pur­chase for the child’s birth­day and make a present with them.

You can give mon­ey to old­er chil­dren when it is dif­fi­cult to find out their pref­er­ences. Old­er stu­dents can already set goals and save for them. In this case, mon­ey can be a good gift for them.

Set Gift Ideas

Shop coun­ters pro­vide a huge selec­tion of sets for every taste — fig­ured choco­late and mar­malade, cakes, sets, bars and their sets. You can also order orig­i­nal cakes depict­ing a wide vari­ety of sub­jects: favorite char­ac­ters of the child, his hob­bies (foot­ball, music).

If you want to make a set gift with your own hands, then a pleas­ant sur­prise will be can­dy cake. To do this, use a foam base, glue it with cor­ru­gat­ed paper, and attach choco­late bars and sets to it, secur­ing them with a bright rib­bon. From above, you can put curly mar­malade or col­ored dragees.

In a sim­i­lar way, only by chang­ing the shape of the base, you can make set tank or car for a boy. The girls will love it a bou­quet or cas­tle of the princess from sets. A box for sets or a gift in the form of a heart or oth­er shape can also be dec­o­rat­ed “set­ly” — accord­ing to the same prin­ci­ple as a can­dy cake.

Anoth­er option for a set gift is gin­ger­bread. Con­coct­ed at home on his own, he gives room for the imag­i­na­tion of his dec­o­ra­tion. But to real­ly sur­prise the birth­day boy, it’s bet­ter to make a gin­ger­bread house — such a gift will def­i­nite­ly be unique.

The eas­i­est option for a set gift is to buy a suit­able bas­ket or dec­o­ra­tive buck­et and fill it with a vari­ety of good­ies and sets with sur­pris­es.

Children’s souvenirs

Choos­ing a sou­venir for a child is also nec­es­sary in accor­dance with his age and needs.

Sou­venirs for young chil­dren are per­son­al­ized items, such as engraved dish­es, embroi­dered clothes, pho­to frames, etc. Some of these items can actu­al­ly be used by tod­dlers, but there are also those that are giv­en as keep­sakes and kept as heir­looms.

Old­er chil­dren will be inter­est­ed in sou­venirs of folk arts and crafts: nest­ing dolls, dolls, whis­tles, bells, pipes. A snow globe will enchant a child of any age. This gift will delight the birth­day man for a long time and remind him of the cel­e­bra­tion. It is pos­si­ble that you will need a small ver­sion of such a bal­loon, for this case mini-bal­loons, also sold in sets, are suit­able.

A wider choice of sou­venirs for teenagers and teenagers: trin­ket-roulettes, per­son­al­ized pho­to frames, lamps, night­lights, soft toys, includ­ing those with blan­kets or oth­er sur­pris­es, all kinds of pig­gy banks.

Many of them can be made by hand.

How to original pack?

After the gift is cho­sen, it will be beau­ti­ful­ly pack­aged. Pack­ag­ing is in the form of bas­kets, box­es, gift bags and bags. The present can be wrapped in wrap­ping paper, placed in an inflat­ed bal­loon, or use oth­er options sug­gest­ed by fan­ta­sy.

It is con­ve­nient to put small toys, sets of cos­met­ics, sets in the bas­ket. They come in dif­fer­ent sizes and styles: rec­tan­gu­lar, round, oval, wood­en and plas­tic, with and with­out han­dles. The bas­ket cho­sen accord­ing to taste and size should be dec­o­rat­ed with an ele­gant rib­bon, flor or bow.

If you need to pack sets, small board games, a phone, then opt for a box. They come in the form of a house, shoes or sneak­ers, in the form of car­toon char­ac­ters, ani­mals and the like. You can buy them ready-made or make your own accord­ing to tem­plates.

You can dec­o­rate a sim­ple box with plas­tic rhine­stones, rib­bons, but­tons, beads. Some­times they are dec­o­rat­ed with sets. On the fin­ished pack­age, you can attach some small toy, key chain using dou­ble-sided tape or rib­bon. A bright rib­bon in the form of a flor can become an inde­pen­dent dec­o­ra­tion.

You can also attach a wish card or a musi­cal card.

To pack a gift that does not fit in the box or is incon­ve­nient to put there, It is rec­om­mend­ed to use an ele­gant bag for pack­ing. It can also be bought or sewn and dec­o­rat­ed to your taste with appliqué or embroi­dery, attach­ing a gift tag.

The next pack­ag­ing option is wrap­ping paper. It wraps gifts that are incon­ve­nient to put in a box, and those that are already packed in a box, but require reg­is­tra­tion. Dec­o­rate such a gift with bright rib­bons col­lect­ed in flors or bows. A good option is to wrap an oblong gift in wrap­ping paper in the form of a can­dy.

For some small gifts or sou­venirs, you can place a bal­loon, inflate it and dec­o­rate it beau­ti­ful­ly. Anoth­er way to wrap a gift is to put heli­um bal­loons in a large box and tie a gift to them.

How to present?

Even more enjoy­able than buy­ing and prepar­ing a gift is the moment of its deliv­ery. After all, you can just give a pre­pared present, or you can arrange a whole per­for­mance.

An impor­tant point: dur­ing the pre­sen­ta­tion of a gift, it is nec­es­sary that at this time nei­ther you nor the child are in a hur­ry.

Here are some deliv­ery meth­ods:

  • hang a light object or put it next to the bed so that when you wake up in the morn­ing, the child is already in for a sur­prise;
  • attach a rib­bon to the bed and stretch it around the house as a guide to the gift;
  • hav­ing caught the moment when the birth­day boy wakes up, give a present to his favorite music or to the sounds of flutes, option­al­ly putting on fun­ny caps or dress­ing up as fairy-tale char­ac­ters, accom­pa­ny­ing the con­grat­u­la­tion with applause and good wish­es;
  • make a map with a cache where the gift is hid­den, and arrange a search for it from con­tests;
  • fill the clos­et with bal­loons and hide a gift there or offer to open a pre­pared box, from which heli­um bal­loons with a tied present will fly out;
  • hide in a plush toy;
  • leave at the doorstep and ring the door­bell and hide;
  • hide the toy on the remote con­trol so that it sud­den­ly leaves a secret place car­ry­ing a gift.

Choos­ing, dec­o­rat­ing and pre­sent­ing a gift for your child’s birth­day is a very pleas­ant and excit­ing chore. Treat them with inter­est, then both you and your birth­day will be reward­ed with a rain­bow of pos­i­tive emo­tions and mem­o­rable mem­o­ries.
