When selecting a birthday gift, ideas abound! For children, popular board games or videos or music are perennial favorites. If the child has hobbies or a collection, selecting something particular to their interests is fun. If you don't know about any specific hobbies, your child will probably have some good ideas about what they would like to receive.
For older children, gifts can get trickier. Gift cards for online music, scrap booking supplies or some other hobby, or movie tickets are usually welcome. It can be difficult to select specific records or videos unless you know what they do and do not have already. For fun, you can always disguise the gift card by wrapping it in a box so the birthday person still gets the fun of opening a surprise.
