Give Your Children An Alternative Gifts for Kids

Aug 20, 2008
For kids, receiving a present is a momentous affair regardless of the time of the year. Whether its Christmas or birthday, gifts are always treasured. For that upcoming party which will mark a significant event in your childs life, try some of these alternative gift ideas from Chris Robertson (Live Habitat Gifts) and Tony Mikael (ATV for kids).

Live Habitat Gifts

Kids can learn a lot about the important things in life by observing animals in live habitats. One gift product that has been very popular for years is the ant farm. Ant farms give children a glimpse into how the ant society really works underground.

Kids can watch as the ants create their tunnels, gather and store their food, protect the queen ant, and work together to keep the ant family alive and well. Though they are very small, ants are often called a small army and ants are frequently used in describing good work ethic. As your child observes his ant farm, he will learn values about work and play while enjoying his tiny new found friends!

Other popular live habitats include frog habitats, Deep Sea Jellyfish, Shark Reef Aquarium or other fish aquariums, Bug Explorer, and Hermit Crab Cove. With each live habitat, there are plenty of lessons to be learned. Children learn by experience and observance. The live habitats enable them to learn safely and in a fun way from their own home.

Practicality in buying ATV gifts for kids

Buying a kid who is an ATV enthusiast makes perfect sense because you are actually sticking to something safe. Let us look at it this way....a kids ATV gift is practical because they will be using it for practical purposes and it can be used over a long period of time. Furthermore, it is harder to outgrow a kids ATV gift than to outgrow a pair of Nikes! And trust me, kids outgrow or get bored with gifts too easily. The last time I got a gift for my friends child, she outgrew them within a few weeks!

Purchasing kids ATV gifts do not break your budget

And of course, when looking for kids gifts, the foremost consideration is always the cost. When you purchase a kids ATV gift, make sure it is affordable and will fit into your budget. There really is not a point in spending too much on the gift in an effort to buy their affection. Kids do not work that way - expensive gifts are reserved, usually, for business people! Let us be honest with that, huh? You get a business associate or potential client something expensive and they might respond positively by giving you their next big project - with kids, it just does not work that way so, do not waste your time and money.

Safety is number one for the kids

I do not know about you but whenever I buy ATV gifts for kids, the first thing that comes to mind is always safety. Consider purchasing gifts from well-known brands because the more established they are, the more research they would have done, the more experience they would have had. Experience counts for lot as far as ATV gifts are concerned.

Consider buying a kid an ATV helmet if you run out of ideas. A kids ATV helmet can have many different uses. They can use the ATV helmet for bike riding or when they are going for a short ride to the store with their dad on a motorbike. It is not restricted to just ATV riding.

Make sure the ATV gift is suitable for their age

Although it has become relatively easy to find ATV gifts for kids online, one thing is for sure. You will have to make sure the gift that you are getting is suitable for the kids age. If the kid is larger than others his or her age, buy one size larger. In fact, to be on the safe side, I buy everything one size larger for apparels. The only kind of kids ATV gift that I cannot buy one size larger is the ATV helmets. In terms of helmets, I always get the help of their parents.
