Finding the perfect gift for kids (and adults for that
matter) can be a tall order, especially when you would like to surprise them
with items that might not be available in your country. Weâ€™ve done your
research for you and have listed our favorite options below. We hope these
gifts will light up faces, young and old.
I. Top of our list for awesome toys for girls are GoldieBlox.
GoldieBlox aims to get girls to build stuff! The combination of the
story and the construction set bolsters girlsâ€™ confidence in spatial skills while giving young inventors the tools they need to build and create amazing things.

III. Crayon Rocks
These crayons are made from all natural soy wax from soy beans grown in USA and colored from mineral pigments. Vibrant colors with a shape designed to strengthen gripping muscles. Great for developing fine motor skills in smaller children.
IV. GoPro HERO.
For the older kids (and parents), we love the GoPro HERO camera, not an inexpensive gift but it does pack a punch and you can purchase many, more affordable, accessories for it.
The GoPro HERO is the perfect entry level GoPro. It makes it simple to capture and share your life. Built directly into a rugged, waterproof housing, and featuring high-quality 1080p30 and 720p60 video, HERO delivers the same immersive footage that’s made GoPro one of the best-selling cameras in the world all in a simplified experience that’s easy for everyone. We love the ease of use!
Priced at $129.99 via Amazon.
V. The Amazon Echo.
We are not a hundred procent sure this item will be available before Christmas but itâ€™s worth mentioning! The Amazon Echo, this device is designed around your voice.
It’s always onâ€”just ask for information, music, news, weather, and more. Echo begins working as soon as it hears you say the wake word, “Alexa.” It’s also an expertly-tuned speaker that can fill any room with immersive sound. Sounds impressive doesn’t it?
Priced at $199 or $99 if you are an Amazon Prime member. Get on the invite list here.
We hope to have inspired you with some cute, cool and innovative toys. Happy shopping!
