I have three little nieces who just love making things so they are very easy to buy for. I always buy a big bag of paper, glitter, crepe paper, felt tips, glue, stickers, coloured card, wool etc and they just love it! I have other nephews and nieces who love pop-up books or books on which you press a button and they play a song. One of my older nieces is a keen reader and loves writing stories so I buy her a book token and notebooks with pretty covers to write in and pens with fluffy ends to write with. Chocolate will rot their teeth and they'll get bored with a game if it's too easy, although many games are educational and can stretch their minds.

Hello, We often think about a child's future while deciding what to give him as a gift. That confuses us, nonetheless we are quite sincere in our motifs. But in order to know what the best gift should be we should learn what the child likes the most. To do that one must get to know the child's mind in first place. One must recall what he would want if he had been a child. He should remind himself of his wishes he used to make when he was a child himself. A child doesn't want anything special, or anything precious. Simple but interesting articles amuses them the most. Thanks for starting this interesting discussion. God bless you

hi biswa, yes,you've hit the right cord.A child doesn't have the capability to differentiate the values of things offered.It belongs to our responsibility to take good note of their interest and buy them a gift accordingly. Thanks for this knock. Bless you too.
