What to give a child for St. Nicholas Day or Christmas?

An original gift for a modern child is not an easy task: today's schoolchildren know what they want and understand toys often even better than their parents. But to surprise the child and give it to St. Nicholas Day or for Christmas is really an original gift after all!

Gifts for children under three years of age are often limited to various toys or care items that are useful for parents. But our task is to present such a present that will attract the attention of the baby while remaining safe. Young children like to draw, but they rarely limit themselves to an album, choosing the nearest wall as an easel. To give a way out of children's imagination and protect the wallpaper from the felt-tip pens, the child should be presented with a drawing board.

Well, which of us did not build a blanket from the blankets as a child? Kids like to have their own space for games, so a great gift will be a house or tent. Parents will appreciate such a place for storing toys, as well as replacing the playground, where a child can spend time without risk of breaking a valuable piece of furniture or injuring himself.

Sledge is also an indispensable attribute, "personal transportation" of kids in the winter on the way to kindergarten. Such a gift will last for many years, and it is relevant for children of any age.

You can give a child and developing games - they will be for him a great pastime. Different shapes, colors and sounds collected in one child's table - a way to take the baby's attention for a long time, and help him in the development of assiduity and logic.

To engage in the development of coordination, dexterity and motor skills can be with the help of a rocking horse: a small pony will certainly become one of the favorites of the young master.

The dreams of modern schoolchildren often revolve around expensive gadgets. We cannot find a worthy alternative to tablets and prefixes from all parents, but we picked up several options that will be a suitable surprise for the St. Nicholas Day.

Designer Lego - the dream of any boy for 7 years. The set can be made up for a specific figure or contain universal details for free creativity. Children can play with the designer for several hours. Classes develop fine motor skills and logic.



If the parents want to give the child an unforgettable day, then it's best to dwell on the impressions. Feeling of free flight in the wind tunnel or race with friends on the cards will delight, and will remain in your memory forever.

A gift in the form of sweets should not be limited to banal cakes and boxes of sweets. After all, you can give a master class for making desserts! Schoolchildren with interest will go to the caramel master class and learn all the secrets of the production of colorful lollipops. And edible pencils will complement the gift under the pillow for those who like to gnaw ballpoint pens at lessons.

A bright, unusual gift can be useful. Turn school dinners into an exciting game easily with the help of a beautiful lunchbox with your favorite characters in movies and comics. From now on, the children will stop bringing home half-eaten sandwiches!

Of course, personal acquaintance with the idol-superhero is a real dream of every schoolboy. Perform it under the power of parents with the help of a professional animator. The meeting can be "random" or planned - it all depends on the imagination and the script.

The question "how to surprise a teenager?" Confounds those who have forgotten what it's like to be a teenager. Attempts to stand out from the crowd and fascination with the fantastic worlds is a trait that unites all high school students.

What does teenager not listen to music? Quality sound in any circumstances will help to organize a portable speaker. A small box, which fits in the palm of your hand, can work for a long time without recharging, and the presence of Bluetooth eliminates the inconvenience of using wires.

Well, if the child prefers not only to listen to music but also to create it, you can give him a master class of drumming or a DJing lesson: he will remain in the memory of your child for a long time.



Young adrenaline lovers will get a gift in the form of races for buggies - light SUVs with simple controls.

Also, you can give your child a sports backpack with an output for headphones. This accessory is very popular among teenagers. It is universal, practical and perfectly complements the informal images of youth.

Lovers of all kinds of experiments can safely give a master class of molecular cuisine. The simplest laws of chemistry will help to prepare ravioli from pumpkin fresh or orange caviar.

Fantasy worlds of comics, books, films, and serials do not cease to cause interest in adolescents. A board game based on the beloved universe will bring not only joy but also an opportunity to develop the skills of strategy and economic planning.



A bright, unusual and useful gift at the same time is a reality. It's worth a little imagination - and even with a small budget, you can make an ideal surprise to a child of any age - from a baby to a teenager. This will help give gifts-impressions: portions of positive, surprise, discovery and drive will be remembered forever, and will stand out among the other presents. After all, who said that you must give a material? The main thing is the sincere joy of the recipient!
