Christmas gift guide for Australian kids 2021

The best Christmas Gift Guide for Australian kids 2021

It’s that time of the year that kids are writing their Santa letters, giving you their wish lists, and so we’re sharing our Christmas Gift Guide with you to help you get started! 

Is "GIFTS" your child’s main love language? Recently we did the five-love-languages quiz with our whole family and it was fascinating to hear the results.

Knowing your child's love language (and your own and your partners, too!) can be useful in improving your relationship with your kids, their relationships with others, and in what ways they best show their love and need to receive love. This quiz is fun to do, read out the questions and enjoy hearing their answers.

Just in case you're wondering, what are the five love languages ... At the core of the love languages concept is the knowledge that everyone gives and receives love differently. In learning more about those ways, we can better communicate love to each other. Most people have a primary love language and then a secondary love language or several secondary love languages. These five “languages,” are:

  • Words of affirmation
  • Quality time
  • Gifts
  • Acts of service
  • Physical touch

So with that being said, below are some of the guides and ideas for giving gifts, toys and love this Christmas. 


STEM toys

These are toys that are geared towards Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics' learning and activities. They are great for children because they encourage them to think outside the box. 

... AND there's no better way to learn STEM than during the early stages of your kids' life (childhood) where instead of solving hard mathematical equations (who wants to do that in their down time / on the weekend??!!), they can learn them through STEM toys.

The good thing about indoor games is that they can keep your children entertained without any electronic devices. Put the ipads and gaming consoles away for a bit, and get them playing Monopoly, Scrabble, UNO, Pictionary Air Game, Chess and so much more. They're fun and a great way for them to practice essential cognitive skills to enhance their complex thought and memory formation.
