Gifting Ideas for Holiday
Christmas gift ideas for every age and gender can be found at Sears.com. When jotting down ideas for gift-giving lists, consider creating categories such as gifts for kids, gifts for teens, gifts for men and for women. Include columns for gifts by age, item ideas and budget.
Gift ideas for boys ages 5-12
Consider gifts for boys that engage the imagination and offer the opportunity to get moving. Younger boys may enjoy digging in the dirt or sand with a Kettler CAT digger truck, while older school-age boys may prefer the thrill of riding a new skateboard. A new two-wheel bicycle is a great traditional gift idea as well. Don’t forget the safety gear for skateboard and bike riders—helmet plus elbow and knee pads are essential. Other popular toys include Legos, Nerf and the classic game Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots.
Gift ideas for girls ages 5-12
Some little girls may adore a new doll, while others may want to hop aboard a neon pink kick scooter. Gifts for girls include ride-on toys and kick scooters for younger girls, as well as the Maxi from Kickboard USA for tweens. Toys that allow for pretend play are great choices and include dollhouses, kitchen sets and backyard playhouses. The Theo Klein cash register makes a great gift for girls (and boys), encouraging math skills as well as imaginative play. Don’t forget fun character watches as a “grown-up” gift for that special little girl.
Gift ideas for teens: boys and girls 13-18
You don’t have to resort to cash or the basic gift card for the teenager. Consider the teen’s interests and use that as your base for gift ideas. Boys who enjoy video games may love a new LED or flat-panel television as well as the book “1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die.” Surprise the teen girl on your list with a digital picture frame that holds multiple photos or a piece of fashion jewelry from the Kardashian Kollection. Magazine subscriptions for teenagers encourage reading—simply choose a topic your teen loves and it’s sure to be a page-turner.
Gifts for men
Gifts for men range from traditional tools such as cordless drills, Craftsman screwdriver sets and sturdy tool chests to luxurious neck massagers from HoMedics. If he’s a sports fan, consider a fun NFL watch from Gametime that’s preprogrammed with his favorite team’s game schedule. Don’t forget, he may be dying to receive that new 60-inch LED television.
Gifts for women
Teen girls aren’t the only ones who enjoy digital photo frames. Buy two and give the second to a special woman. Pamper her with a sensuous foot bath or a pair of foot massaging slippers. Wow her with colorful gemstone jewelry or a set of sparkling diamond earrings. Sears offers a huge fine jewelry section to fit all styles and budgets.
