Cheap Christmas gifts for kids with varied hobbies
Gifts are inevitably a huge part of Christmas, but coming up with Christmas gift ideas for kids isn't always easy. From the time a child opens the first door on their advent calendar at the beginning of December, they're already excited by the prospect of what they might get on the big day. It's a great feeling watching their faces when they get something that they really love from Santa Claus. If they're not happy, however, be prepared for a brutally honest reaction and a grumpy face. Practical items such as clothing can be a risky gift choice for younger children who might not yet have developed an interest in fashion. Combine the "risky" or more practical gifts with the ones you are sure will be a hit, such as sweets and treats, to make sure that kids don't have any chance to get in a grumpy mood about receiving a multi-pack of socks. If you want to buy them more toys, but they already seem to have everything, check out the selection available on Lesara for a few unique ideas. Lesara has hundreds of new products available weekly, so you're bound to find something new. All kids are different and have such a varied list of likes and dislikes, so sometimes it can feel like an impossible task to find the things they like – especially if you're buying for multiple kids! Check out these Christmas present ideas for children, based on their interests:
- Creative minds:
For kids who spend most of their time in a fantasy world, harness their creativity with interesting and interactive toys. Perfect Christmas gift ideas for kids with creative minds could be a doll's house, farmhouse or space station. With these types of toys, they can use their imagination to create their own stories and immerse themselves in a world of fantasy. DIY and crafts kits are also a good way of encouraging children to explore their artistic skills.
- Car lovers:
Toy cars are loved by little boys and girls alike. Buy car-loving kids a toy car park, fire engine or racing tracks for endless hours of fun. Car mats or remote controlled cars are also great options, provided you have enough room.
- Aspiring architects:
If your child is passionate about building and construction, then building blocks are just the right toy for him/her. With a huge range of playsets now available online, aspiring architects can build their own streets, cities and worlds! Building blocks are available in various shapes, sizes and colours and can be made from wood or synthetic material. Whatever the type, just make sure your mini architect has what they need for the next big project in hand!
- The great pretender:
Does your kid enjoy playing shop, playing mums and dads or playing kitchen? In that case, a small toy kitchen or shop with cash counter is a great idea. Encourage kids who also love helping out in the kitchen to make "real" cakes and baked treats that they can invite family and friends over to their "shop" to sample.
- Outdoor adventurers:
Adventurers and explorers belong in nature and are difficult to keep indoors. Give your outdoor areas a makeover so that they can continue playing outdoors whenever possible with swings, slides, garden furniture, playhouses and sports equipment. Tricycles or bicycles are also perfect Christmas gifts for children of all age groups.
- The tech-savvy:
Practice makes perfect. All our aspiring little techies and computer specialists are starting younger and younger. Modern Xmas presents are often known for their advanced technology. It's not just video games, but also learning tablets that can help them learn by playing. Walkie-talkies, music players or digital children's watches are great options too.

Ideas according to age groups
Are toy watches, walkie-talkies or clothing the ideal choices for babies? No, infants love soft toys, play dough, picture books and musical toys. For kids over six years, classic Christmas presents such as board games, learning games or perhaps their first bicycle are a great choice. Be sure to avoid products with small parts that might be swallowed when buying goodies for babies or toddlers. Even if you're buying clothes, try and avoid onesies with small buttons or other embellishments on them.
