In case you missed it, Christmas in July is just around the corner.

Looking for the perfect gift for the little ones in your life? Here are our top picks.


As a parent, there's nothing more valuable as peace and quiet, whether you're at home or in the car. So, if you live in a noisy house where blaring kids shows or screaming toddlers rule, or you're planning a road trip and need to keep the little ones busy, now's the time to give the gift of kids headphones.

From on-ear to over ear headphones, wired and wireless – there's a colour, size and style to suit all ages, making it much easier for the kids (and you) to enjoy quiet time.

Activity trackers are a fun way to get kids exercising. Beyond that, they also offer a range of gaming and photography capabilities, along with teaching them how to tell time.

There are Frozen styles for Elsa lovers, and Spiderman styles for aspiring superheroes. Plus, they can allow you to keep closer tabs on your kids, with parental controls and other features available depending on which tracker you choose.


Drones and robotics

Drones can be a lot of fun to play with, but they require a fair bit of practice – so consider this a gift for the big kids and teens in your life. Whether you choose a simple indoor drone, or HD video drone for outdoors, there's a style and price range to suit everyone.

If you're new to the drone game, start small then, once you learn to control the drone, you can upgrade to something bigger and better.

Meanwhile, if you're looking for something even more exciting that gets your kids outdoors, an electric scooter, Segway or Gokart could be exactly what you're after. When it comes to drones and robotics, the options are abundant and guaranteed to be a whole lot of fun (just be sure to check your local regulations to ensure safe and legal use).
