When we think about giving something to a child in his pre-teen years, the first thing that comes to our mind is video games, remote control cars and what not for a boy and dollhouses and stuffed toys for girls. There is no harm in gifting these items to them. The only problem is that everyone thinks the same, and therefore, everyone brings the child, a gift that falls more or less in the same category. And why would you want to gift a child something that they already have? Why steal away their excitement of opening the shiny gift wrappers because they already know that the gift is going to be something predictable, something that people repeatedly give them? Isn't it time that we finally start putting some thought into what would be a purposeful gift for a child, something that would benefit them and interest them all the same and more than anything, something that is unique and hasn't been gifted by anyone else. The one thing that you must remember while choosing a gift for a kid is that their minds are like wet putty, whatever you say or do, or in this case, give to them, will leave behind a lasting impression. And trust me, you don't want to be the one responsible for molding their mind the wrong way. So, while you are scratching your brains out thinking of something out-of-the-box, here we are with some considerably unique gift ideas for a kid.
