Three Great Birthday Gifts the Young Child in Your Life

If you have a child in your life whose birthday is coming up, you may be struggling with the decision of what to give him or her as a gift. Whether you are an aunt or uncle, a grandparent or a friend of the child's parents, picking out a gift can be difficult, especially if the child is too young to have developed likes, dislikes and interests. Fortunately, it's the thought that counts and any gift that you choose to give will be appreciated. Read on for some gift ideas that are appropriate for almost any child.

Personalized Book
Kids and their parents alike enjoy speculating as to what life will be like as the years go by. What kinds of clubs and activities will the child join as he or she enters middle school and high school? When you give the child in your life a personalized birthday book, his or her loved ones will be able to enjoy a story and illustrations crafted just for them while reflecting on who their child is and who he or she will eventually become.
Tricycle
There's a reason why tricycles have endured while many other children's toys and activities have faded in popularity. For children who aren't yet old enough to learn how to ride a bicycle, tricycles serve as a perfect starting point. They allow young children to have fun and explore their neighborhoods while staying safe, developing important gross motor skills and burning off excess energy. If the child in your life spends enough hours on a tricycle, he or she may not even need training wheels on his or her first bicycle when that time comes!
Miniature Easel
Coloring and drawing help kids to unleash their inner artists and learn about the world around them. If the child in your life is used to crayons, markers and paper, you can expose him or her to a new medium by giving an easel and chalk or markers as a gift. Some easels designed for children have different materials on either side (a whiteboard and a chalkboard, for example), which allows for even more creativity.

Buying gifts for adults is difficult enough, but shopping for young children can be even harder. When you arrive at the birthday party with one of these gifts, the birthday boy or girl and his or her parents will be sure to appreciate it.
