Personalized Birthday Gift Ideas for Kids
Birthday parties are bigger and better than ever for kids these days and it seems like gift giving becomes more and more of a challenge with every passing year. What do you get the child that has everything or the child that you may not know very well? Personalized gifts are always a hit. Children love to see their name in print and there is a huge variety of fun and interesting gifts available on the web as long as you have a few weeks notice. Personalized does not have to mean expensive either. Many stationery store sites sell fun children's stickers, both traditional paper stickers and vinyl stickers. The vinyl stickers are generally waterproof and can be used for bottles, sippy cups, food containers, and notebooks just to name a few. They come in a wide variety of designs for boys and girls. Another favorite is the personalized step stool with wooden puzzle-like letters spelling the child's name. It not only serves as a tool for small children to reach the bathroom sink, but they can actually remove the letters and work on spelling their name. There are several cute designs out there, most popular, pastel colored names for girls and primary colored names for boys. Many people overlook personalized stationery items for children as well. Things like personalized notepads, note cards and address labels are fun gifts for both the child and parent. Personalized note cards and address labels are perfect for sending thank-you notes after the party or correspondence to grandparents or teachers. There is something to be said, in this world of electronic communication, for learning how to write and send a hand-written note. Everyone still likes to get snail mail. For mealtime, there are tons of personalized kid's plates and placemats available. Several sites carry melamine plates and laminated placemats that can be personalized with a child's name. These are easy to clean and come in a huge variety of designs for everyday, holidays and even special designs for the birthday boy or girl's big day. And last, but not least, luggage tags are perfect for backpacks, gym bags, dance bags, computer cases and yes, luggage. Designs are available that represent just about any activity or interest. Luggage tags usually include up to three lines of text. Keep in mind that a name and phone number only may be the best way to personalize a child's luggage tag. Including an address may be considered too much information. These or any other personalized gifts you may find will definitely be remembered for the consideration and thought put into choosing a customized present. That will last much longer than the latest, greatest toy trend for both child and parent.
