“Bricking” awesome kids’ gifts

So, my dear gift lovers, summer’s over, and kids are back to school. I have to say, nothing can cheer them up better than a new Lego toy 🙂

Lego have done phenomenally well over the past few years.  I just love how they let us— ordinary customers—dream big and come up with unique toys, using our creativity and imagination.

I am always extremely excited when kids from my inner circle begin to show the first signs of Legomania, the way I experienced mine (alongside the Barbie obsession, don’t judge!) from six onwards.

What makes Lego a great gift? From my personal experience, it is one of the most fun ways to learn about pretty much everything, from famous landmarks to basic engines.

By the way, a good lifehack I’ve learnt recently (from this gift, actually): children go super-quiet when they build stuff, so if you need a stress-free moment to finish that last work email, this is your way out!

The very last bit of advice: forget all toy stereotypes. If you are choosing a gift for a boy, don’t limit yourself to cars and aliens. Maybe, just maybe, you will help him discover he’s a future architect or a doctor!

Currently living and working in London, I dedicate a few hours every week to share my gifting knowledge, accumulated over the years of epic gift fails and unexpected triumphs. I'm much better at giving personal recommendations than trying to be generic, so feel free to drop me a line.
