Gift Ideas for Kids

About a month ago I knew that I needed to come up with some gift ideas for kids in my family before the holidays sneak up on me! I put myself in such a panic over finding cute stuff to give all the little boys and girls in my family for birthdays and holidays, don’t you?

What would really help me out is a place that has really cool stuff for kids of all ages that will give me a few gift ideas for my babies as well as my friends’ kids. I’m really not that hard to please, all I want are items that don’t look like I made a mad dash to the local discount store at the last minute, snatched something up and threw it in a box. But this can be more difficult than it sounds when you are busy and don’t have a lot of time to cruise through the malls for inspiration.

FRECKLEBOX PERSONALIZED GIFTS comes in very handy when searching for personalized gift ideas for kids on your list. They not only have cute stuff, they personalize the items with the kids’ names or even nicknames. If anything will let the kids (or their parents) on your Christmas list know that you planned ahead it would be seeing their very own name printed on a book, a puzzle or a lunchbox.

Today common names are well... not so common. Unique baby names make custom printing services practically a necessity if you want anything personalized. As an example, all of the girls on my Christmas list have rather long double names. This presents a problem because a little girl’s name that has 14 letters and a few spaces can really take up some room and be tricky to place in an attractive way.

I have run into problems with this in the past. But when I was speaking with Mark at Frecklebox I asked him could he handle printing a VERY long first name PLUS a middle name on a lunchbox. His answer was that all those letters were no problem. I had my doubts, but the results were amazing and here is a picture of Cassidy’ Evette’s personalized zebra lunchbox.

This precious lunchbox that I was sent to review is honestly the first personalized item that has ever had this little girl’s entire name on it! And the hot pink and lime green zebra print is so stylish that I wanted to save it for Christmas but in fairness to the sponsor I felt I should let her give it a testrun and I’m glad that I did because she adores it. She has traced her name on the front over and over, filled it with little girl stuff and carried it everywhere.

The lunchbox is grand and the personalized books are just as great. Kids love seeing their name in print and hearing it repeated throughout the pages keeps their attention focused on the story. This method works so well that smart parents should start building a library of books with their children’s names worked into the stories while their little ones are still in the nursery. I have to say that this is one of the best gift ideas for little boys and girls ever!

I mentioned the personalized lunchbox and book because those are the products that I have seen, held in my hands and tested. But there are many other gift ideas for kids to be found at Frecklebox including personalized school folders, notebooks ( I got a spiral notebook with MY name on it so I can tell you how special a gift like this makes a girl feel! THANKS MARK!), placemats, posters, growth charts and for the tween girls on your list there are journals in cute designs.

My experience with the service at FRECKLEBOX indicated that there is no waiting of weeks for your personalized gift to be delivered. They say on the website that your gift is in the works within minutes after you submit your order. Your item is completed within 48 hours and they let you pick the shipping method that works best for you. The products that I was sent to review got here very quickly which is very good to know in case I need an almost last minute gift for a birthday party or a baby shower.

Not only does this very unique store have some of the coolest gift ideas for kids around, but I saved the best part of this review for last; their gifts are VERY AFFORDABLE. When I saw those personalized puzzles for less than $15 I became a fan of FRECKLEBOX for life.
