Still confused about what to give your kids for Christmas? Don’t worry because we’ve rounded up the best holiday gifts to for this season, and we’ve even thrown in a few ideas of gifts you could use too! Here are QiDZ’s picks for the best gifts of 2022:

Activities: Do you want to keep your kids busy and active this coming year? Book them in for some active fun. It’s a gift that they will enjoy and that you won’t regret (unlike that box of slime you gave them last year). There are so many fun options to choose from, including passes to Ski Dubai in Mall of the Emirates or Dubai Ice Rink in Dubai Mall for some wintery fun. If your kids are between the ages of 1 and 6, a great option is a monthly pass to Hive Soft Play Area. If you don’t have younger kids, your friends with little ones will be very grateful for this gift that keeps their kids occupied.

Experiences: Instead of giving your kids the usual toy or Lego set, how about a special experience that they’ve been dreaming of? Instead of just building Lego at home, they can spend the day at Legoland, go swim with the dolphins at Atlantis or have a special day at IMG’s Winter Fest. You will make memories together that will last longer than any gift.

If you really want to surprise them, buy them a ticket to watch Dubai’s New Year’s Eve Fireworks in person from aboard the Love Boat! They will be talking about it for the whole year, that’s for sure.

Another very cool experience, is visiting the Chillout ice lounge at Times Square Centre Al Quoz. Your kids will be transported to the chilly North Pole inside of this frozen cafe where they can have a hot chocolate and snacks, while admiring that everything is made of ice, including they very cool ice sculptures. It’s a fun activity for kids and adults and includes the thermal clothing you need to go through the lounge.

Gifts that Keep on Giving: There are lots of toys and products for kids out there online and in the shops, but at QiDZ we have some unique ideas. Instead of getting your toddler or bigger kid a certain number of toys for the holidays, how about a toy rental subscription? With Kiddos Toy Club, a local UAE business, your child can receive between 3 to 9 toys a month. Kiddos delivers the toys to you and picks them up at the end of the month when they bring you the new delivery.

You can also find 2 different types of subscription boxes on QiDZ that will keep your children really busy. The first type are educational activity boxes from Mammys. These are great for helping kids learn their colors, numbers, shapes, and alphabet or for doing Montessori Activities and getting them to do chores.

The second type of activity box are the themed craft boxes from The Happy Box. Each box is customized based on your kid’s age (between 3 and 11 years old) and includes 8 arts and crafts about a particular theme.

Subscriptions aren’t just for products, though. You can give your kids or your friend’s and relatives’ kids (from babies to 8 year olds) a 6 or 12 month subscription to classes at Kids Unlimited, where they can have full access to their play and fitness program that improves balance and coordination, while having fun.

Great Products: You may still want to give your children or those in your family a traditional gift that they unwrap under the tree, and that’s ok! Those can still be fun and creative, like Warm Gift Baskets that include toys and accessories from just about any theme, from their favorite character (Paw Patrol, Disney princesses, Mickey Mouse, Hello Kitty) to mermaid, rainbows, Nerf, Transformers, beach fun and gardening and of course a special Christmas basket.

Another really different gift idea is gifting outfits and accessories from Yalla Kids! pre-loved clothing. Their online shop offers low prices on branded clothes and gives you a more sustainable way to dress your kids in trendy outfits.

If you’re looking for a great Christmas gift that will ease you into the next school semester, then the adorable lunch boxes from Citron are exactly what your kids need. Their bento boxes, snack boxes, water bottles, lunch bags and cutlery make lunch at school cute and fun. Your kids will feel so proud of their matching lunch sets.

Living in the UAE, one of the best gifts you can get or give are a pair of sandals! I’m sure you’re thinking that your kids have lots of sandals, but Feel Good Shoes are orthopedic barefoot sandals made of genuine leather, making them a good way to pamper your kids or yourself this holiday season.

If you want to go big or go home, then surprise your kids with a one-of-a-kind jungle gym from Cape Reed! Their high-quality, wooden play equipment will keep your kids busy outdoors and active for hours, and you will never forget their expressions on Christmas morning, waking up to such a special present! Shop and use QiDZ promo code QiDZ10 for 10% off.

Wrap it Up: Whether you choose a product from the gift guide, or are gathering your own list of toys, accessories, books and other presents this year, a great way to make these gifts more personalized is with the Wrap Shop. Their cute packaging and wrap can include colors and designs of your choosing and even the person’s name on the box or bag, to make your gifts truly extra special this year.
