Gift Ideas for 1 - 5 Years

Whichever age group your child falls into and whatever the gift giving occasion, HipKids has the ideal present to make their eyes sparkle. And we can even personalise selected items with your child’s name to add that unique touch to your gift, so be sure to visit our Personalised Gifts page for the details after browsing our gift range.

Because five years is such a big span in developmental terms, it’s often helpful to separate 1- 5 year olds into two different groups.

  • 1 – 2 year olds: when they’re only one or two years old, their play is all about learning about the world around them, accomplishing simple tasks and developing their mental and physical abilities. Suitable gift ideas for this group might include trikes, scooters, wagons, soft toys and play sets.
  • 3 – 5 year olds: three to five year olds on the other hand, are beginning to socialise more and starting to understand about sharing and playing together with other children. They’re also learning to speak properly and use their hands and fingers more dexterously, and they are usually less prone to the temper tantrums of earlier years. Suitable gift ideas for this group might include bikes, pedal cars, Lego sets, teepees, cubby houses and personal furniture items.
