Best Gifts For Children a.k.a Kids


Looking for the right gift for a pre-teen or child ages 7-13? It's understandable if you feel totally confused as to what kids like these days. The truth is kids in this age bracket have varied tasts, likes and dislikes. To think one seven year old would like the same thing another of the same age would like could be a disaster in the making. That said lets consider a few factors the will determine the ideal gift for pre-teen or younger recipient. 

The best start is looking at stuff the child already has and still likes to play with. Your goal is to look for a more upscale model of the same make and brand. An alternative is to buy accessories for the item the child holds near and dear to their heart. It's important to know the fact and don't assume. Has the item entered the realm of sentimental attachment and will likely be used for another year or two. Excercise care as some items are only occasionally entertained to offset bordedom and because they are there. You want to focus on stuff they actually are into. 

Here is a list of questions you can ask to determine the right gift for that particular child:

What toy or gadget do they love to take along when going on trips? 
What do they talk about getting when with others thier age? 
What books do they like reading? 
What is the childs favorite movie? Is there a character in the movie that excites him or her? 
What magazines does he/she subscribe to? These may point you in the right direction. 

Now some of the basics. Most kids love toys. The kind of toy depends largely on preference so don't get anything. Also remember that todays kid is very brand conscious. Many pre-teens know a good quality toy or gadget over a cheap knockoff.
