For children whose birthday falls on, or near Christmas, choosing new children’s toys as birthday gifts can be easier than it sounds. All the cool new toys will be in the shops in time for Christmas kids to choose their ideal birthday toys at the same time. This gives you, as the gift sender, the best possible choice.
Before you hit the shops looking for the newest toys, do some research first! Around the end of summer, the Autumn/Winter new toy collections are announced and released. These announcements include the hottest new toys to hit the market. These usually include super heroes, dinosaurs, robots, musical toys and electronic toys. With all this choice, you get to be the favourite family member or friend with the best new toy gift of the year. If you are not the parent, remember to consult with mums and dads to ensure you are not delivering the same new toy as someone else.
The important thing is to ensure the recipient of your gift knows that they are the star of the biggest family holiday of the year and there are some rules to remember when doing this. Firstly, separate birthday gifts should never, ever be wrapped in Christmas paper – make the distinction by wrapping presents in the appropriate type of wrapping; birthday wrap should be used for birthday presents. Secondly, if you are hosting the party, never serve Christmas leftovers for birthday dinner.
If you decide to opt for one big gift when choosing new toys [http://www.elc.co.uk/elc/star-buys/], remember to help Christmas babies feel special by ensuring there’s a little something extra to open for both birthday and Christmas.
When choosing new children’s toys at any time of year there are a few essential things to consider; whether you are looking for baby toys, toddler toys, pre-school toys or toys for older children. Price, toy safety, age range, quality and durability are all important factors to be taken into account. New toy trends can help you understand what’s big at Christmas but will the toy last and be enjoyable all year round? A robust toy that is safe and durable will be loved for far longer that a trendy new toy that breaks on Christmas day.
For those buying gifts for kids who haven’t chosen to celebrate a ‘second’ birthday at a different time of year, celebrating a birthday at Christmas needn’t be difficult. Not only are kids on holiday instead of at school, but all the best new toys on the market are available!
