Gift Giving Occasions

Does your toddler help pick out gifts for others? We like to teach gift giving very young so ours do. Here are just a few ways we encourage and help our little ones give gifts.

1. Ask “what could you make for ____?” And then help them do so.

2. Ask “what does _____ like to do? What could we give them to help them do that?”

3. Place three items you have chosen out (one of which shouldn’t really fit the person who will be receiving the gift) and ask “which one do you think is the best gift for ____? Why?”

4. Ask “What does ______ like to do when he/she is at our house? Do they have that toy/game/material at home?”

Giving gifts us tricky for many adults so why not help your little one start to figure it out now?
