Finding the perfect gift for the special littles’ in your life can be challenging, especially when what they want one minute turns out to be something entirely different the next. We’ve been there and we also know how stressful and busy holiday time can be. Let us help make your life a little bit easier with the Hoot Reading Holiday Gift Guide. Our 2018 Guide is packed with educational toys (don’t worry your kids will think they’re fun too!) and books (of course). We’ve also outlined “experience” ideas to choose over toys if you’re looking to give something different this year.
Keep reading for our 20 picks for the 2018 holiday season!
For the Star Wars fan in your life! Kids can learn how to control electronics with code and play over 22+ missions and challenges with their Droid.
Let your little wizard make some magic this holiday season by creating their own wand that responds to their movements, just like the characters in Harry Potter.
Bring stories to life with voice interactive storytelling app Novel Effect. Add music, sounds, and even character voices, simply by reading a book out loud with the app.
We love technology, but there’s something about holding a physical book in your hands that can’t be replaced. Reference Common Sense Media’s “Best Books” lists for ideas broken down by age and book type.
Who doesn’t love getting mail? This is the gift that keeps on giving every month of the year. We would recommend a subscription to Nat. Geo Kids or Cricket, but there are lots of other great options out there as well.
BOARD GAMES & CRAFTS
With the i-Loom, kids can learn, create, and share countless friendship bracelets. Learn various knotting techniques through the i-Loom App.
Stuck on what to get your Grandkids for Christmas? Need ideas for your Niece or Nephew? Give the gift of Hoot! Encourage a love of reading and help enhance current skills by paying for a one month subscription for a child in your life this holiday season. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details!
Educational Day Out
Get your kids tickets to visit your local zoo, aquarium, or museum for an engaging and different day out.
The Loud, But Fun Activity
Get tickets to their favourite musical artist, stage act, or sports team. You may want to throw some ear plugs in your bag for good measure (you can thank us later).
Think of different activities you may not have tried with your kids in your city and make a day of it. Visit an indoor water park, escape room, skyzone, or bowling alley. Go with your gut and the one you think they’d enjoy the most!
We hope this list gave you some gifting ideas for this year. Wishing you and your family a relaxing holiday filled with lots of love and laughter!
