Gift ideas for babies and toddlers just for fun!
Finding christmas presents and birthday gifts for little babies and toddlers these days can be really tricky. “What do I buy for that child who has everything?” “Where do I find the best gifts for babies in Australia?”. It’s not just Chrismas and birthdays, you need to think of easter and other occasions as well such as christening days!
A lot of children these days seem to have everything! For the givers, it can be a real problem. Perhaps it is your niece, nephew or friends child, perhaps you haven’t been to their house to scout out what they already have. It can be just as big a problem for the receivers. For example, perhaps they have just had their fourth boy and their house is filled to the brim with toys and they really don’t want or need anymore. What’s more, wasted toys which get thrown away are bad for the environment.
And then, before you know it, they reach the age when toys don’t even matter and all they want is the latest gaming technology or money.
This list of ours might help! It’s not about brands or models, instead, we have done our best to find items which are timeless and aren’t going to be just a passing fad. Some of them might even become keepsakes, which they (and you) will cherish until they are well into their teens.
Toys are bad… We don’t think so!
We love toys and think that they are so important for children. This list is definitely (although not completely) about toys. We have read that the right toys help improve reading, and experiential processes. Did I say that we love toys and games?Timeless gift ideas
