8 Examples Of How Children’S Gifts Have Improved Over The Last 30 Years
Now that the quality and choice that we are offered far exceeds anything that we have been offered before, combined with our new ways of shopping, buying a quality children’s gift couldn’t be easier or more rewarding.
- Internet and Mail Order Shopping. The way we shop has changed; this has made a great deal more children’s gifts available to anyone and everyone, regardless of where you live. You can even register your children’s birthdays on many web sites, to receive recommended gift lists for the right age group. (This is a really useful service if you do not have your own children, but buy for nieces and nephews or God children, and you are not sure what to get).
- Bedroom Accessories. We now have a gorgeous selection of Children’s bedroom accessories, lots of which make fabulous gifts for boys and girls. Particularly good bedroom gift ideas are Nursery Night Lamps, Kids Bean Bags, Children’s Cushions and Kids Memo Boards.
- Quality Wooden Toys. Often inspired by toys of a bygone age, quality wooden toys, with age recommendation and made from replenishable wood, ensuring the future of wooden toys survives. Also, as an added bonus, wood is usually a lot easier to glue than plastic, if the toy is accidentally broken. Fabulous wooden toys that you can find now include Wooden Train Tracks, Wooden Play Food and Wooden Cars.
- Personalised Gifts. As technology has improved so has the ability to personalise gifts. Personalisation of a gift could mean: engraving a kid’s silver money box, embroidering a personalised cushion, appliquéing a kids apron or printing a personalised clock. These have become very popular over the last 30 years as the giving of a personalised children’s gift is a very special and rewarding experience.
- Practical Gifts. Over the years more and more effort has been put into designing practical gifts for children. Items like Kid’s lunch boxes, kid’s drinks bottles, children’s towels and kid’s duvet covers, are now available in so many gorgeous designs, that no child would be disappointed to receive a lovely looking practical gift.
- Children’s Crafts. In the 70’s and 80’s we did have fabulous craft books, but these relied on you having all the bits and bobs in the first place. Now we have great little craft kits available on https://sewingmachinebuffs.com/what-kind-of-oil-do-you-use-on-a-sewing-machine/, like sewing, knitting or building kits that have everything you need to make the finished product.
- Dressing Up Clothes. What a fabulous array of Dressing Up Clothes we have available today! Gone are the days when the only option was to dress up in Granny’s old cast offs. Now on offer to all is a wonderful fairytale selection of Knight, Monster and Pirate Costumes, Fairy, Princess and Animal Fancy Dress, all making brilliant children’s gifts.
- Sleepover Gifts. I am not even sure that children had sleepover in the 70’s and 80’s, I certainly didn’t! However now it is common practice for children to regularly have and go on sleepover parties. This does of course give us an extra opportunity for giving a gift that is practical, but will ensure some fabulous sleepovers with friends. Great sleepover gifts could include, Sleepover blankets, Snuggle Sacs, Kit Bags and Kids Wash Bags.
