Searching for the perfect Christmas gifts for kids? Just for you, we’ve rounded up a list of guaranteed kid-pleasers for the littlest loves in your life. Whether their happy place is cooking in the kitchen with Nanna, they love exploring the great outdoors with friends, or their idea of fun is a Nintendo Switch battle royale with their siblings, we’ve got all the latest kid-friendly appliances, gadgets and gaming tech to have them declaring this Christmas the best one yet!
Here are our top picks for kids’ Christmas gifts…
Wrapping up a flashy new gaming console shoots you straight to elite-level gift giving. The Nintendo Switch Console Neon gives kids a stack of playing options, from solo play to two-player Tabletop mode, or TV mode for more! Grab them some extra controllers for games night, too.
Or fill the stocking of your PC gamer with the best accessories for levelling up. The Lycan Gaming Remus 4-in-1 LED Gaming Combo (hot new release alert!) decks them out with a rainbow LED-lit keyboard and mouse, plus a headset and mousepad. That’s four gifts in one!
Have little ones who pinch your mobile to watch their favourite shows? Perhaps they’re ready for their own tablet!
Top Pick: Feeling generous? The new Lenovo Legion 5i 15.6" Win 11 Gaming Laptop is top of any gamer’s wish list with cutting-edge 12th Gen Intel Core processors designed for next-gen high-performance gameplay.
Got an adventurous camper who loves exploring beyond the front door? Kit them out with a drone and an action camera for capturing epic snapshots from breathtaking new heights. A fitness tracker lets them keep tabs on their treks and walkie-talkies up the fun factor!
And surprising a tween with an electric scooter will have them out of their bedroom and into the sun in seconds. You might even get a break from all the taxiing over weekends!
Top Pick: The supercool DJI Mini 3 Pro with RC drone has a camera onboard and can fly up to 4km while staying connected. Imagine the photos they’ll take!
“If you’ve got a child who’s keen to get into the kitchen, look for small appliances packed with features for safe, simple cooking to get them started,” says Tracey Ellis, The Good Guys Buyer – Portable Appliances.
“Dessert machines are definite kid-pleasers, and blenders or smoothie makers help them master a huge array of foods from drinks to dips and soups.”
Top Pick: What kid (or parent!) doesn’t like Ice Cream? The Cuisinart The Soft Serve maker inspires imagination with a world of soft serve and sundae treats at your own fingertips.
Time to spoil them with their own phone? Teens will tell you exactly what’s on their wish list (the new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4, no doubt) but for primary-aged kids, we recommend the budget-friendly Motorola e13 as a great starter. It has a durable and waterproof design, a Full HD camera, and 128GB of storage for all their tunes and games.
Top Pick: “The Spacetalk Adventurer is the perfect Christmas gift for kids under 12,” says John Wong, The Good Guys Buyer – Mobiles & Plans. “It gives them the best features of a wearable and a phone, plus offers mum and dad peace of mind with smart parental controls, GPS tracking and School Mode for distraction-free learning.”
Rockstars in the making need the right audio gear to rock out at home. If you love listening in, then a portable Bluetooth speaker can blast their favourites for the whole house to hear. Want tunes for them, but some peace and quiet for you? Some feature-packed headphones – like these custom-for-kids JBL Kids On Ear Headphones – offer the best of both worlds. For trendsetters, a retro-cool turntable with a few records stuffed in a stocking can’t be beat!
Top Pick: Karaoke anyone? The best-selling JBL Encore Essential Portable Partybox features a 6 hour battery life and a dazzling light show for the ultimate disco-party sleepover.
