Here are some tips/gift ideas for age groups that are often overlooked and difficult to shop for:
Infants & Babies
Make sure the toy is age appropriate by the manufacturer's age rating (0 - 6 months) and (3 months+) are in highest demand:
No 'button' eyes or noses - features must be soft and sewn on securely
Package should say 'Infant Friendly' or 'Baby's First', 'Infantino', etc.
Developmental toys (Fisher Price, Baby Einstein, Playskool, Leap Frog Baby)
No small parts
Children Ages 10 to 18 Years Old
Gift cards in the $25-$30 value range would be best (Hudson's Bay, Wal-Mart, HMV, Cineplex, Gap, Stitches, Chapters, Coles, Old Navy, Garage, Blue Notes, La Senza, etc.)
