90 Present Ideas for Kids who have everything

present ideas for kids

Finding Christmas presents and birthday gifts for kids who have everything can be difficult. If it is your niece or nephew perhaps you haven’t been to their house to what they already have, or maybe you just had your fourth boy and your house is filled to the brim with toys and you don’t need anymore. Wait until you reach the age when toys don’t even matter and all they want is the latest gaming technology or money. This list is for all these reasons and more. It’s not a gift list about brands and you won’t even find a mention of Lego. Instead, we have created for you what we hope will be a timeless list of present ideas that will cater for babies right through to teenagers. We hope that this Christmas or birthday gift list is as relevant today as it will be in 50 years time.

Non-Toy Christmas trend

We think toys are important to children, so this is not a list about not buying toys for Christmas. An opinion piece written by Latrobe University says, “Play is not limited to any one setting or one product or type of product. The potential for play is anywhere and at anytime”, and “The potential to improve the learning, reading, and experiential processes through play, toys, and games is great”. And we agree.  Toys and play matter.
