When you have children, birthdays and holidays seem to take up a lot of the year. The more occasions you have to celebrate, the more gifts you need to buy. This also means you must spend lots of your time on finding the perfect gift for them; one which strikes the perfect balance between being educational and thoughtful. This can be tricky to do when you have limited funds and time, but it is not impossible. In fact, it can even be lots of fun and will be more than worth it when you see the joy on your child’s face when they receive it.
Create a budget
As with most things, it can be easy to go overboard when buying gifts for the people you love. Children are no exception. Although you will want to get them something great, you should also bear in mind how much you can afford to buy. Ideally, you should set a budget a few weeks in advance of the special occasion, one for small presents, and one for the main one. There are some sites which allow you to buy otherwise expensive gifts for a fraction of the price, which will save you a lot of money.
For better or worse, children growing up enamored with their hand-held devices or game consoles is inevitable. The best thing parents can do is to monitor them as much as we can whilst they are on their screen time. Of course, apart from making sure of their privacy and safety online, and that they are only watching videos and playing games appropriate for their age, it is also a must that we ensure that their gadgets and accessories are safe and are ergonomically designed for their age.
Headphones is one of these accessories video-and-game loving children cannot do without and since they are bound to use them for hours on end whilst listening to music, watching videos, or playing games, it is important that mums invest in a brand that can not only withstand a little one’s hand but are also safe for their use.
JBL® recently unveils their new headphones models specifically designed for the kids and we were lucky to get first dibs on their exciting new products. The launch was held at Kidzania Manila and was hosted by my favorite mum deejay and event host, Delamar Arias, with her adorable son, Cooper, in tow.
