3 Unusual and Creative Gift Ideas for Kids!



Sometimes we come across the coolest of ideas for gifts and want to share them with you. These are unusual and awesome, and something I'd love to play with myself. Who can resist the idea of writing messages to their children on their nightlights, so they have a sweet message to see while they are falling asleep (and yes, I am that mom that wrote chalkboard "I Love You"s on my son's lunchbox lid for years, lol!). It's soothing to children to have a piece of mom or dad when their parents are not directly in sight. Of course, these are adorable too, and as the kids get older, they'll want to write messages of their own!

If images of donuts, cupcakes and ice cream swirl around in your child’s head each morning, it’s not their imagination – it’s their night light! Just in time for holiday giving, Continuum Games introduces four yummy Emoji-Notes Color & Shine craft kits ($19.99). These kits allow you to color your nightlight and write your own messages.  When you’re ready for a change, wipe it clean and color it again.  This is a light up message board, night light and craft kit all in one.  The kits join distributor Continuum Games’ line of Lumenico SleepyLights ($29.99) that offer soft lighting for a goodnight and sleep-tight bedroom atmosphere.





This robot Lumenico sleepy light is the one we like best. Even my son who is in middle school now would love this as a nightlight in his room (he's still got a little kiddo left in him). :) The remote control adds to the fun, as your child is able to zoom through the four power modes. This kind of light is crazy cool for a kids room, and definitely not your ordinary night light!

  • Four power modes – “sleep” mode button lowers luminance to 2% brightness which is perfect for sleeping. “Hour” timer turns the night light off after 60 minutes to ease your children into a peaceful night sleep. The “side lamp” soft light will ease young eyes while allowing your child to finish some bedtime reading or add last minute details to a homework assignment. The “rainbow” mode can be set by simply pressing a button. The nightlight will begin a beautiful soothing transition of all colors the lamp offers.
  • Calming color changing light top – kids love the easy to use the remote control. Choose from 60 beautiful LED colors with the touch of a button and put the power in their hands. The calming rainbow function can also be dimmed down by pressing the button multiple times - perfect for day sleeps. Aloka offers the largest range of nightlight designs in the world. With interchangeable uprights you will find it easy to change to a new design suitable for boys, girls, baby, and adult decor.
  • Perfect for home decoration – light passes through screen printed acrylic panel to display fun designs. Great for use in the play room, Man cave, friendly office, kids room d├ęcor. This night light is perfect for tiny fingers and generates no heat conductivity. The safe low voltage (5 volt) LED lights will not heat up even after long working times and is designed to stay on all night.
  • Energy efficient – the long life, low power LEDs will last 25 times longer than standard light bulbs. Costs less than 30 Cents a year to operate. Based on 12 hours of usage per day and 0. 11/kwh. Powered by included batteries, you can also power by connecting the included USB cable to a standard charger or computer port.
  • 100% risk-free satisfaction – if for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us. We want you to be happy with our products and service, we want you to be confident in the items you’re buying from us. Our aim is to ensure that parents can rest easy knowing their child’s night light is safe and will never pose any danger to them while they are sleeping.
If that wasn’t enticing enough to get the kids racing up the stairs for bedtime, have them play hide and seek with a monster! Snuggle Monster Hide & Seek Bedtime ($29.99) in Purple, Pink or Blue Monster shades, is a storybook and fun night time activity designed to help parents get their kids to bed at night.  Introduce your child to their very own snuggle monster and read them the story about how snuggle monsters are super silly creatures that hide in the closet or under your bed during the day because their eyes are made for nighttime and sunlight is like dark to them. They are afraid of the light!  But at night, it is your child’s job to find them and let them know it is okay to come out and play.  Each night, mom and dad hide the monster somewhere in their child’s room. When it is time to go to bed, parents let their child know it is time to find their snuggle monster.  That’s where the child can search for and find their nighttime pal Snuggle Monster before going to bed.  Parents have a transition tool (one fun activity before bedtime) they can use to help get their child to bed with no fuse.

The boxed set features a nighttime storybook, lovable plush monster as a sleep companion and a hide-and-seek game. Watch the nighttime ritual turn the nighttime struggles into snuggles!

All three of these ideas are perfect for gifting to the littles in your life this holiday season and beyond.
