Birthdays are always a ton of fun, but the part that may not be so much fun is thinking of a perfect birthday gift.


Kids in general, have different interests  and preferences at different stages of their life, making it close to impossible to really know what the right thing to do is. Fret not, VIVA has shortlisted some of the best birthday gifts and ideas for kids under the age of 12, so that you have a decent variety to pick from and that are bound to please the kids without a doubt.



Who doesn’t like a scooter? You can’t go wrong with this one. People of all ages and all kinds can unite and agree that scooters are awesome. You need to read more and look into reviews to find out which scooters would be suitable for your child. They come in different sizes and with different features, so you’ll want to look into that to make sure that you get the perfect one for your child.


Character Bed Sets

There is so much variety when it comes to this option. This is a great idea because you can actually personalize it in a way that really appeals to your kids character and their favorite things. It could be a character from a cartoon or a movie, or a theme such as space or an animal- whatever it is they’re into, you can get a duvet and pillow covers set that has their favorite thing on it. 



All kids wear and love hoodies. They’re practical, comfortable, and there are so many to choose from. This is a safe idea to go with because you just need to make sure that you get the size right- and even if you don’t, if it’s a bit oversized that’s fine too! Get the color right, and maybe get a hoodie from their favorite brand if they have one. 


Board Games

There are so many exciting and cool board games available these days, it’s really something! And they come with all kinds of themes and challenges, so you’re bound to find one that appeals to your kid and their interests. There are trivia, strategy, fantasy, the classics- you name it, it exists! This is something that is also extremely practical because if they do love it, it’ll last for years with them and come to have a lot of sentimental value as well.
