Ask Nurit: The Perfect Gift

Dear Nurit,

The holidays are rapidly approaching and I need some expert advice. I have a long gift list that includes nieces, nephews, young cousins, and of course, my own children. I know what my kids like but I’m not up-to-date on the preferences of the youngest members of my extended family. Everyone is so busy, I’d like to avoid polling their parents. What do you suggest?

It’s true that all children have unique tastes when it comes to toys but rest assured there are also commonalities that unite specific age groups. When you go into a toy or bookstore ask the manager or owner for help. Often just by knowing the age, and sometimes gender, of a child, a seasoned “toy professional” can pick out a gift that many of his child customers have enjoyed. When shopping for kids you don’t have to know everything about them. Just focus on one aspect of their personality. Does your niece love horses? Does your nephew enjoy reading? Shop along those lines. Happy holidays!
