Need a little inspiration to help you find some last minute birthday gifts for children? Did you forget about that birthday party and now you need get something fast? Here are some fantastic ideas you can buy asap that are kid-approved.
Kids love to be helpful! Find them a hammer and a screwdriver set in
their favorite colors. They’ll not only be excited to use their new
tools but also to help you around the house.
My niece loved the red tool kit - with real tools – that she got for her 8th birthday.
Kids get hurt. That’s a part of childhood. But if you put a Spiderman or
Strawberry Shortcake bandaids on it, suddenly skinning your knee
doesn’t feel so painful. :)
I’m one of those parents that doesn’t want their kids watching too much TV, but even I think that their own movie is one of the coolest birthday gifts for children to get! Even if it's just Strawberry Shortcake or Thomas the Train, it makes them feel so grown up.
For boys, simply tie paracord around the straps in hemp knots. For girls, double-knot some strips of cute fabric in knots around the straps. Simple, easy, and it’s so entertaining to watch how they flaunt their new shoes as they walk from place to place.
These are some of our family favorites:
For Younger Kids
For Older Kids
What kid doesn’t love magic? (Some of us never grow out of that.) If you can find a disappearing trick, a card trick, or just a good mind bender, they’ll have a few new talents to impress their friends.
And as far as last minute presents go, these are easy!
Kids love the idea that they have a cereal that’s all their own. They
don’t have to share with mom or dad, they don’t have to share with baby
brother, AND it’s loaded with more sugar than their parents usually
allow first thing in the morning.
Remember to get a “fancy” bowl to go with it. I prefer to give the plastic ones that have a built in straw. A brilliant invention if you ask me.
Guitar, voice, soccer, karate, swimming, ballet… there are a bazillion lessons to choose from! And this gift really shows how thoughtful you are – even if it is last minute.
