When looking for a fun and exciting gift for your children, sometimes you still want to get them a surprise present alongside the latest video game or trending game they have already requested.
If this sounds like you, then continue reading to discover five brilliant ideas for fun and entertaining gifts for your children.
1. Sponsor a Zoo Animal
First on the list is a more unusual gift for your child, either at Christmas, on their birthday or simply just ‘because’, would be to contact your local zoo and enquire as to their various animals available for sponsoring.
Not only will they receive a cuddly version of their favorite wild animal in the post, but they can also visit their animal in the zoo and see how ’their’ money is helping to look after and care for them and their friends.
2. A Bean Bag Chair
For children who love to lounge, either when reading their favorite adventure book or playing their addictive video game, look no further than treating them to one of the many options of durable, comfortable and entertaining bean bag chairs for kids.
Bean bag chairs come in a wide variety of sizes, colors, patterns and prints, with a cover that is easy to wash and clean, no matter what your children accidentally spill onto it.
3. LED Lights
Whether your children are gamers or not, nothing says privacy and ultimate on-trend room décor than LED lights and furthermore, especially those that can be controlled and color-changed from a smartphone or tablet.
You could even surprise your child by, on the morning of their birthday, having their room covered in multi-colored LED lights and for extra points, moon lamps and stars on the ceiling for a true birthday light show.
4. A Magazine Subscription
Even though, upon first read, a magazine subscription does not sound like the most interesting surprise gift for your child, you may well be utterly surprised as to the impressive range of different subject matters glossy magazines have these days.
The beauty of this, or another monthly Christmas or birthday gift for your child, is that far from being a one-off entertaining present, they will be able to experience that same sense of excitement every single month for a whole year.
5. An Arts & Crafts Hamper
If your child is somewhat of a budding Da Vinci, then look no further for their next birthday than choosing to put together a bespoke arts and crafts hamper, specifically tailored towards their specific likes and interests
Pack the hamper full of coloring pencils, wax crayons, craft scissors, kid safe PVA glue, felt-tip markers, numerous sketch pads and notebooks, sticker, string and wool, pastel paints and watercolor, washable paint palettes.
To finish their new arts and crafts hamper, also be sure to include a wipe-clean apron for them to wear to stop them, well at least to minimize, getting pencils and paints across the room they play in.
