Gift ideas for kids

Happy birthday kids: Gift ideas

Often it’s not that hard to think of suitable gifts for younger children. The little ones often have long wish lists with new toys.

Before you buy something, it’s best to ask the parents if they agree. This is especially important when it comes to game consoles.

The education of your protégé is in their hands, after all, and especially when it comes to things like game consoles, they have a say there.

However, they will probably be able to tell you something that their protégé will be happy about anyway. If you talk to them about your gift beforehand, you may be able to save yourself trouble.

Clothes are always appreciated by parents as well, but will probably be rather less exciting for the child. Especially if it gets many exciting gifts at the same time on his birthday. A small highlight can still be new clothes, if you choose, for example, T-shirts with his favorite superhero or her favorite animal.

As an aunt, uncle or other close person, you can also give the birthday child time together. How about a trip to the zoo, swimming pool, shopping center or movie theater? Maybe even take a friend of the child with you.

For many children, such a "parent-free" day is special and they are usually happy to have great outings. Of course, kids are also happy when such a gift comes from their parents and there is a surprise outing on their birthday – or any other day.

Tips for happy birthday kids wishes

Tips for happy birthday wishes for kids

Often, on the child’s special day, friends and family are invited to cheer him or her up and give him or her rich gifts. These gifts are often accompanied by birthday cards, which once again express congratulations in written form.

So that the little jubilarian can be happy about their birthday card, we have a few tips and suggestions for you here.

Don’t expect too much

Gifts are a great thing. Even more so if you get a lot of them on this day.

A lot of kids, especially when they are little, get very excited and overwhelmed with all the hustle and bustle and attention on this day. So don’t expect the perfect reaction to your gift and birthday card.

Very few children will sit down quietly and read long birthday greetings when there is a huge, enticing package next to it containing a new toy. So don’t be too disappointed if your card doesn’t get the attention it might deserve.

However, you should still write a card if you think it’s appropriate. It’s important that children learn to appreciate kind words and texts as much as new toys. They may even stash the card somewhere and pull it out again in a few years when they are older.

Tailor your message to the age

Even if you love your child, nephew or granddaughter as much as you can and would love to write her or him an entire novel, remember to adapt your text to the child’s age. Teenagers are already a little more comfortable with longer texts than three-year-olds.

The youngest children will probably be read the card, but how much they understand is questionable. So it’s better to save your long texts until the children are old enough to understand them. For children who are still very young, short funny or lovely sayings will do.

When choosing words, you should keep in mind that small children do not yet understand many words correctly. Especially if they are a bit longer, there might be difficulties in understanding. So stick to simple phrases and do not use too long sentences for birthday greetings for children.

Refer to the child’s interests

Refer to the child’s interests

It is not easy to attract the attention of the child on his oder her birthday and so many congratulations. But what you will definitely increase your chances with are birthday wishes that relate to his or her interests.

Younger kids in particular have a lot of imagination and often have certain passions for dinosaurs, soccer, astronauts, princesses, knights, fire trucks or certain animals. Maybe he or she is a big fan of a children’s movie. Then, of course, you can relate to that or get inspired by their fantasy worlds.

So, if you draw a small drawing of an object he loves in the card next to your congratulations, you will surely get the child’s attention.

Make the birthday card special

Of course, you can also make the birthday card itself a real eye-catcher right away. You’ve probably seen cards that play music when you open them or ones with fun 3D objects.

These cards can even have a playful effect and provide especially for small children for exhilarating moments. Here, the more colorful the card, the better often applies.

Especially creative and unique are, of course, birthday greetings for children, which are completely individual and personal to the characteristics and wishes of the birthday child. Maybe you can think of a nice phrase to personalize our suggestions.

Communicate your birthday wishes in another way

If you don’t want to use a card because you think it won’t be read anyway, you can also convey your congratulations to the child in another way. For example, you can sing it to him, write it on the cake or hang a banner in the living room.
