Children’s Day is around and my search of best gift for daughter and her friends has begin. Starting from checking out on what she already has, and what’s needed. Here is a list of Top 10 Children’s Day gift ideas.

10 Unique Ideas for Children’s Day Gifts

Best ideas for making Children's Day special for your child. Gift a smile, or a hobby, enjoy it together with lots of fun and some surprise.

14th November ‘Bal Diwas‘ is the day dedicated for well-being and prosperity of children. To think and plan for their brighter future. In schools various activities are planned around 14th November, encouraging creativity and sportsmanship in children. I recall during my school days, this ‘special day‘ was divided into – Sports, Skits, Plays, Songs and Sweets. It was fun; we would collect candies, appreciation notes, feedback from school teachers. To count who got the best of everything. The winner would be ‘self-declared’ Star of the class ๐Ÿ™‚

As the whole concept of Children’s Day is to ‘encourage kids, motivate them, provide them with better prospects. However, it has contained only to school level. Let’s do something different this time and bring a smile on their little cute faces.

1. Activity Boxes as Children’s Day gift

Children love toys and games; so give them something useful instead. I am a fan on self help activity boxes, which aids learning with fun. There are many brands of activity boxes available online or offline. Select the age criteria and suitability according to your kid. Subscribe or get just one, these boxes are quite engaging and keep them off gadgets or T.V. addiction.

2. Reading Books – Stories, History or Adventure books

books an ideal gifting options for children's day

Books bring wisdom and good habit along with knowledge. Adapting it from an early age is favorable. Get them books as per age or interest level. Mine is 6 years and can read whole sentences without help, for her easy read it yourself books would be an ideal gift. Recommend to get hardback books, instead of an app based gadget. Let them LOVE and learn ‘care’ for books. Don’t forget to get gift wrapped them too.

3. Indoor Garden Gift kits –

Kids love experimenting and see classroom practicals coming to life in real. Beautiful little urban-gardenia‘ with gardening tools is the best gift idea. Teaching kids gardening is a great exercise to keep them engaged and also bring a sense of responsibility. Get some Soil-cakes, Seeds, Organic Fertilizers, Schedule for watering and dig-ups. Plus the details of the plants you are growing. For more reasonable versions can try with local plant nurseries. Mine loves the little shrubs with cute pink flowers blooming every morning.

4. Gift an Adventure Trip or Trek Trail

Nothing beats a family trek or an adventure visit away from hustle bustle of the city. A win-win for kids & parents alike. The excitement peaks the moment TRIP plan is shared with them. Added point – they will learn a lot about nature from world’s best guide – parents! A gift that create happy memories for children & families.

5. Stationary – Notepads, Scratch-book or Doodlers

Reasonable, and the best gift idea which works most of the times is get them some quirky stationary. Market is full of attractive Notepads, Scratch-books & Doodlers (that’s my personal favorite too) Let the creative juices flow and give them freedom from ‘do-it-yourself’.

6. Fountain Pen

I got my first special ‘Fountain Pen’ by school principal when I won an inter-school debate. It’s been decades (won’t tell in numbers ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) however I still remember that pen. Make that moment extra special by giving as personalized ‘fountain pen’ on Children’s Day. A fountain pen will always be special and has its own charm. Explain the importance of this special pen or relate it to a reward for the kid.

7. Personalized T-shirts or Mugs

Personalized gifts are always appealing to kids and adults alike. Love the happiness on the faces to find their names printed on T-shirts, Mugs etc. They not only appease them but also adds into memorabilia later. They also learn how to take special care of these personalized items.

8. Bicycles or Skates make best Children’s Day gift idea for growing kids

Gift must be useful and for the reasons to bring a change – Bicycle, Balancing bike, Roller Skates. Help them in developing a hobby, and an outdoor activity. This not only refreshes them from the juggle between school & home, but also keeps them active. City’s space crunch is taking away the open spaces from kids. It’s time to indulge in outdoor sports or hobby which brings a positive change and strengthen bond between kids and parents.

9. Chocolates ‘Kuch Meetha Ho Jaaye’  

Kids and Chocolates! the LOVE in first sight. Let them enjoy a little indulgence of sweet love from Cadbury Dairy Milk. Can you imagine a CHILDHOOD without Cadbury chocolates?

10. Your time and undivided attention this Children’s Day gift to your Child

Just not for ONE day, give them your attention and time every time they in need. It gets tasking at times, but this is the most crucial phase they need you. Be supportive; not authoritative. Tell them the difference between choosing right or wrong. But with love, time & attention. Not by any rule book.

This Children’s Day ‘Baccho ke saath bacha ban jao‘ become a child with them; come out of your parent’s disciplinarian avatar for a day. Check out this wonderful TVC of sharing LOVE & HAPPINESS.
