How to pick Childrens Presents with Wicked Uncle

This is a sponsored post.

Sometimes it can be a struggle to find brilliant children’s gifts! Although you may know what to get your own children, it can be harder to buy for other children when invited to birthday parties and Eid parties, or even other family’s children who you may not regularly see. However there are a number of things to think about when choosing a gift.

How to Pick Childrens Presents

Picking presents for children other than your own can be a bit daunting as there is such a wide choice and you don’t want to get it wrong! But there are a number of things you can think about before purchasing.

Check with the parents

There is nothing wrong with having a quick word with the parents to ask if there is anything specific the child is interested in, for example crafts. Once you have a rough idea it can make it easier to pick a gift the child will like.

Read reviews and ask for opinions

No matter how good a toy looks it is worth seeing if there are any reviews about the gift you are thinking to purchase to see if other children and parents have liked it.

Educational Toys

You may want to have a look for toys that are specifically marketed as educational. There are toys that encourage problem solving and exploration and you may feel like these would be more beneficial for the child to have.

Lifespan of toys

There are some toys where you use them a few times and then there is not much more you can do with them.


Imaginative play is so important to help a child learn skills and so when picking a toy you may want to pick one that encourages children to use their imagination.


Always bear in mind the child’s age and purchase age appropriate gifts. And this is where Wicked Uncle can help you pick a gift. Their site is easy to navigate and products are helpfully categorised into ages. 305
