Christmas Gifts for Kids between 5 and 12

Age and gender appropriate gifts are important for a gift to be of good use in this age group. The strategy of using lists can be applied in this age group as well to ensure that your purchases fit your budget – first create a list of items by scouting for potential gift ideas for kids and categorize them by age group (5 to 8 and 9 to 12) and gender (unisex, girls, boys). Tweak the lists to establish counts – works well if there are several recipients in each of the age and gender categories. Once these lists are established, in a few iterations, purchases can be balanced without exceeding your budget.
