With Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to dress up as Santa and spread some cheer!
If you have little ones in your house, you need to buy them some gifts too (because only cookies and milk won’t satisfy children of today’s generation). Did you know that parents, on average, plan to spend as much as $276 on each of their children this year on Christmas?
So, if you’re also planning to spend a little to buy Christmas gifts for your children, here is a list of 5 unique items.
- Hawaiian shaved ice and snow cone machine
If your kiddos love nibbling on some snow cones during the spring or summer, this little machine is perfect for them. It costs just $60, and with the Christmas season approaching, you’ll even get a 25% discount. Your children can easily make snow cones, shaved ice, and slushies with this.
You can make some margaritas using the machine. It’s easy to clean and small in size so that your kitchen or cabinets don’t look clumsy while putting this there. It also comes with two snow-cone molds and a non-slip mat for easy handling and uses only about 55 watts of power. You can easily find this amazing machine on Amazon.
- Little Tikes Tobi Robot Smartwatch
Forget about the Apple or Samsung smartwatches. The Little Tikes Robi Robot smartwatch is the coolest thing you can give your children this year. It costs only $67.99 and is available on Amazon too. The best thing about this gadget is that it is interactive and helps your children learn new things, unlike televisions and phones.
It has two cameras along with an interactive robot that teaches kids arcades and brain games. It also has a built-in pedometer so that your little baby stays motivated to keep themselves healthy all year! Help your child take some gorgeous selfies and edit them with stickers and funny emojis.
The best part about this watch is that it comes with parental controls, that is, you can control the amount of time your kid can play with the gadget. It comes with a USB port, rechargeable batteries, and an adjustable wristband.
- Cubby houses
If you have a large backyard or garden, a cubby house is a perfect gift for your child. You can buy a cubby house of any theme, a Disney princess, racing toy cars, or under the sea! While you can construct a cubby house yourself along with your kid, it’s easier to buy them online.
Just search for cubby houses online on Google, and you’ll be greeted with a wide range of playhouses. Websites like Kidzshack also keep houses of various materials.
So you can buy a plastic cubby house because it is much easier to maintain, or a wooden one that will look grand next to your actual house. A well-developed cubby house costs a little more, around $1800-2000, but there are houses available under $1000. Cubby houses are great for your kids as they can freely jump and play around inside instead of being glued to gadgets all day.
