The best thing about books is that they allow you to travel anywhere you want and become anyone; a hero, a poet, an astronaut, a wizard, anything really. You can give your little ones the gift of adventure by cultivating the habit of reading from a young age.
Aside from Times and Kinokuniya, you can also get a book for children of different ages at Woods in the Books, Closetful of Books, My Greatest Child, and Owl Readers Club. If you’re purchasing online at Owl Readers Club, be sure to quote [ BYKIDO10 ] to enjoy 10% off your purchase!
2. Sweets, Snacks & Treats
If you have a sweet-toothed kid, they will probably never say no to sweets, rather it will be a much welcome gift. Grab a bucket and fill it with chocolates, cookies, cakes, macarons, candies, and all things sweet. If you’re worried your little tyke might eat all of the sweet stuff at one go, you can divide the portion and gift it over several days instead. This way you can make sure they don’t overdose on sugar and extend the happiness over several days!
3. Tech Toys
We’re in the technological era and that means, among other things, oodles of tech toys! Not only are tech toys a great way to keep your little humans entertained, but they’re also a great way to keep them up-to-date with the technological advancements of the time!
You can consider myFirst Sketch, a durable and environmental-friendly portable sketch pad; littleBits Avengers Hero Inventor Kit, which allows kids to build and customize their own high-tech hero gear, and; the Intelino Smart Train, a classic toy train, reinvented, among others.
4. DIY Kits

An island getaway may be out of the question (for now) but you can still bring your little ones on a little family trip within Singapore. Book a staycation or take another trip to their favorite playground. Swing by Sentosa and spend the day hitting the curves at Skyline Luge or the thrill rides at Universal Studios Singapore. After all, putting aside any work you may have to spend time together with your kids may just be the best present for them.
