The best Christmas gifts for kids: 16 creative ideas for children

Christmas gifts for kids

Choosing the best Christmas gifts for kids can be tricky. If you've got a young person in your life, it’s time to embark upon 'The Christmas Challenge'. This essentially means making sure your present outshines the large cardboard box it came in (tougher than expected if your target is under 10) or the smart device currently welded to your tween/teenager’s hand.
