How to choose the best Christmas presents for kids

When trying to find the perfect gift for kids, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Consider the child: Children have wildly differing personalities, hobbies and interests. Try to incorporate them into your Christmas presents.
  • Don't forget the parents!: That too-cute drum or electronic toy might light up a child's eyes, but you do run the risk of annoying the parents who have to deal with the noise, need for batteries or mess. Check with parents before buying a noisy, messy or otherwise potentially troublesome gift!
  • Ask the parents or close relatives: Parents are often the best guide to what their kids both want and need. You're going to please more people if you buy a toy that'll be loved or clothes that will suit an upcoming trip or predicted growth spurt.
  • Keep it safe: When shopping for toys or sports gear, always check that they meet Australia's mandatory safety standards.
