But that’s not all there is to choose from. Let their imagination run wild with duplo, magnetic blocks and mechano — there’s a set that’s perfect for any age.

Board game gifts for competitive kids

For the crafty kind of kid

Do you have a creative kid who loves some DIY? Is your home filled with handmade lava-filled volcanos and the most glittery unicorns that ever unicorned? Head to Lincraft, The Reject Shop or Eckersley and grab everything from slime-making kits and assorted modelling clays to easels and paints or a craft box filled with exciting goodies! 

It’s tech time

There’s no doubt that the little digital natives in your life will appreciate a tech gadget for their Christmas gift this year. Those hard-to-buy-for teens will love you when you hand over anything from a tablet or gaming console to headphones or a smartwatch. Check out JBFIHI for all the latest in tech for kids.  

For your sporty kid

What’s more Aussie than a game of cricket in the front yard on Christmas day? Grab sporting goods as a gift and knock Christmas for six. Whether you’re investing in big-ticket items like a bike or trampoline, or filling up the Christmas stocking with a grip ball set, head to Rebel Sports for sporting goods and other cool Christmas gifts for kids this year.  

Giving back

It’s never too early to teach your little ones how to give back. What better way to do it than with a charitable Christmas present? Many organisations offer charitable gift options that allow you to make a donation in a child's name. Or perhaps you could take your children to help you find an item for a gift drive at Big W or Target— this way they can see that they are a part of something bigger.  

Whether you’re buying for kids big or small, there is something out there for everyone. We look forward to seeing you at Macarthur Square when you shop for cool Christmas gifts for kids this festive season!
