Whether you are buying presents for your own children or somebody else’s, choosing the right gift can be difficult if they haven’t asked for something specific. You don’t want to spend a lot of money on something that they will either quickly get bored of or have no interest at all in. Many gifts have a certain shelf-life length, and if you aren’t on the pulse with games/toy trends, then you might struggle.

Here are a few ideas for gifts that are hot right now:

iTunes_Vouchers

iTunes Vouchers

If you want to play it safe with teenagers that love to use apps, or play games or music on their phones then iTunes vouchers could be a good option. This will allow them to choose their own way of spending the voucher while still avoiding the less thoughtful money in a card option. It also means that you won’t be buying something with a short shelf-life as they can be used at any time for the latest available iTunes products.

/Fidget_Spinner

Fidget Spinner

This is probably the hottest gift right now, and this small spinning toy is surprisingly addictive to play with for all ages. In fact, Forbes has even named them as the top office toy of 2017. While the toys are infuriating teachers in classrooms across the world right now, they are a definite winner with most kids at the moment.

It was only a matter of time before someone thought up the idea to combine traditional action figure toys with the current demand for all things to be ‘smart’. The Skylanders system enables the figures to come to life in video games through Bluetooth. These have been popular for some time now, and the introduction of new figures ensures that the phase isn’t over yet.

Stunt Scooters

Maybe your kid is an adrenaline junkie and enjoys performing tricks on their bike and/or skateboard. If so, a stunt scooter could be a welcomed investment, and one your child will cherish forever. Of course, stunt scooters, otherwise known as trick scooters, are hardcore; this will mean a few bumps and scrapes along the way. However, it could open up a whole new avenue for your child. There are many scooting competitions, and if your child learns from a young age, they may one day become a stunt scooter champion.

If this is sounding like the perfect gift, Skates.co.uk offers a wide range of stunt scooters, from beginner to high-end extreme models, that’ll kickstart your child’s stunt career. Their range of stunt scooters are built with reinforced parts, so they can withstand the force needed when performing tricks and stunts; they can also spin 360 degrees.

Nintendo Switch

Nintendo has always been leading the way when it comes to keeping the kids entertained. From the introduction of the NES and the release of great iconic games like Super Mario, Donkey Kong and Pokemon, to the Wii Sports games, the guys at Nintendo know how to design awesome games for the entire family. The Nintendo Switch is their latest offering and is one of the most desired gifts of the moment. While it is a pricey gift, it is a very popular option that is sure you to go down well with most kids who like video games – and it’s great for adult gamers, too.
