What can you give a child of 12 years?

The ques­tion of what to give a child of 12 years old puz­zles the invit­ed guests more, because dads and moms are aware of the inter­ests of their child. Chil­dren’s shops are crammed with a vari­ety of goods and toys. It remains to find out what exact­ly will please the hero of the occa­sion.

Age Features

When choos­ing a gift, age char­ac­ter­is­tics should be tak­en into account. Your coun­ter­part is no longer a child, but not yet a teenag­er. The gift should be a func­tion­al thing that will last more than one year. At the same time, it is impor­tant not to repeat our­selves, because mod­ern chil­dren do not com­plain about the lack of toys, clothes and oth­er delights of life.

It is best to ask the par­ents of the child about the pref­er­ences of the birth­day boy or ask him him­self. At the age of 12, chil­dren can clear­ly explain what they are inter­est­ed in and what they would like to receive, because they already feel like adults for a long time. Well, then you need to act on the basis of the infor­ma­tion received.

If a child is inter­est­ed in style issues, the donor has a direct path to a chil­dren’s cloth­ing store where you can pick up a fash­ion acces­so­ry. For assid­u­ous and thought­ful chil­dren, var­i­ous cre­ative sets are suit­able. If your child loves sports and out­door activ­i­ties, you should take a clos­er look at the sports range. A bright roomy bacweack, a sports water bot­tle, a pro­tec­tion kit or a new ball will be received with a bang.

If the birth­day boy is fond of a par­tic­u­lar sport and has achieve­ments, he will be pleased to receive a gift that reflects his pas­sion. It can be a nom­i­nal medal­lion, a badge or a brooch in the form of a sports equip­ment.

The orig­i­nal is con­sid­ered a uni­ver­sal option. gift-impres­sions: today shop­ping malls sell sets of gift cer­tifi­cates, which can be used to go to a mas­ter class or a tri­al les­son.

New skills allow the child to stand out from the crowd of peers and feel incred­i­bly cool. When choos­ing a gift, you need to be guid­ed by sev­er­al stan­dard require­ments.

  • The donat­ed item must be safe and made from non-tox­ic mate­ri­als. It should be borne in mind that the gift can be used for oth­er pur­pos­es, so it should not pose a dan­ger to either the child or oth­ers.
  • Before buy­ing, you should pay atten­tion to qual­i­ty cer­tifi­cates. This is a guar­an­tee that the present will live the allot­ted time and will not break at the first attempt to use it.

But before you go shop­ping, It is worth pay­ing atten­tion to things that should not be pre­sent­ed on a birth­day.

What is not worth giving?

The first thing that comes to mind is to look for a cool T‑shirt or a styl­ish dress. Hov­er, there is a risk of not guess­ing with the size — the child may be larg­er. Yes, and it grows quick­ly, and the pur­chased item will quick­ly become small. The birth­day per­son must also choose sport­sar, shoes and oth­er nec­es­sary equip­ment. The excep­tions are cas­es if the donor often com­mu­ni­cates with the child and knows ll what size / style / style will suit him exact­ly.

If you are not sure about the cor­rect choice, it is bet­ter to give the child a gift cer­tifi­cate for a cer­tain amount, and he will buy every­thing he needs.

Anoth­er burn­ing top­ic is the dona­tion of mon­ey. This is a great way to save time and solve the prob­lem with a gift with­out run­ning around the shops. But every­one has dif­fer­ent finan­cial resources. If a small amount is giv­en, it will dis­solve into a larg­er offer­ing. There­fore, it is bet­ter to take the trou­ble and go through the out­lets to find the right gift option.

And cer­tain­ly not worth giv­ing an ani­mal as a gift. Every child dreams of a liv­ing pet, but his desire can be real­ized only after agree­ment with the par­ents. After all, a four-legged friend is not a toy and requires some care, for which there may not be time. In order not to upset the child and not to get into an unpleas­ant sit­u­a­tion, It is bet­ter to clar­i­fy this tick­lish moment in advance.

Even if the idea of ​​liv­ing crea­tures turned out to be intru­sive, it is worth look­ing at oth­er gen­der-based gift options.

Gifts for boys

12-year-old boys are active­ly inter­est­ed in tech­nol­o­gy and elec­tron­ics. Keep­ing them inter­est­ed is pret­ty easy. You can pur­chase a cool Lego set or a design­er that allows you to cre­ate var­i­ous elec­tri­cal cir­cuits. The stores have a large selec­tion of pre­fab­ri­cat­ed mod­els of ships, air­craft, heli­copters, tanks. Each set comes with a draw­ing, mate­r­i­al (wood or plas­tic) and instruc­tions.

The degree of com­plex­i­ty of the work is indi­cat­ed on the pack­ag­ing. Paints and nec­es­sary tools are usu­al­ly pur­chased sep­a­rate­ly.

A styl­ish fit­ness bracelet will allow the boy to con­trol the lev­el of his phys­i­cal activ­i­ty.

GoPro cam­era can be used in any sit­u­a­tion, whether it’s swim­ming in the pool or walk­ing through the for­est.

Present for a girl

The young lady becomes inter­est­ed in cos­met­ics and per­fumes, she is attract­ed to var­i­ous styl­ish things.
