With Christmas around the corner and happiness in the air, your parents must be contemplating about the perfect gift that you can give your little one to make Christmas memorable. You are probably rummaging for ideas, trying to remember the gifts that your parents gave you and checking forums over the internet. Here are a few wonderful gifts that you can give your child this Christmas.
A travel experience
Gifting an experience could be the one of the best gifts that a parent can give a child, for they would be able to remember them well into their adulthood. By taking them on a trek in the mountains, a hike in the forest, or by taking them to a different country you are helping them broaden their global perspective, helping them absorb major life skills, learn and respect different cultures and traditions and giving a wonderful travel experience for them to cherish later. Such activities help the child learn on how to live away from home, how to live in the wilderness and also on how to face challenges at a young age.
Gift your children books for it will improve their reading and language skills, boost their confidence and help have better social interactions. Give them books that they can read and inculcate crucial life skills, like the books of ‘The Chronicles of Narnia,’ to give them a sense of adventure at an early age, or ‘The Hitchhiker’s’ Guide To The Galaxy’ for a fun-filled science fiction experience or a book full of bedtime stories that you can read to them at night before they drift off to sleep.
A dog can be not just a man’s best friend, but also that of a child. Not just a friend, a dog is a pal, a companion to play with a source of entertainment and happiness for your little munchkin while growing up. Gift your children puppies, for it would teach them how to be strong and take responsibility, to be disciplined and a lot of other skills in their adolescence. A puppy could be the best gift that a child can ask for from a parent.
A musical instrument
Another great gift that your child can derive pleasure and happiness from. A musical instrument can not only make your kid nimble and use his hands with dexterity but can boost memory and make your little kid brim with creativity. Learning musical terms like chords, beat, rhythm, octaves, pitch etc. help foster the development of mathematical, arithmetic and reasoning skills in a child and also makes a child’s brain sharper and be able to think critically.
A plant is an excellent gift idea for a child, for the blooming of a flower or fruits, give immense happiness to a child. The child would take the responsibility of watering it regularly, keeping it under sunlight to keep it alive, thereby also inculcating the values of being down-to-earth, the habit of preserving mother nature, the idea of sustainability and green living. The gifts outlined above can be the best that you can ever give, for they are not just material gifts, but also experiences that they would keep in their hearts in the times to come.
