    I’m a little surprised to see the toys divided into boy and girl sections. Please – just 1 list so parents and grandparents can pick what they know their grandchild likes without this division.

    1. I have gifts categorized by topic (STEM, pretend play, arts & crafts, etc.) as well as broken down by age and gender. I do the latter because it’s how most people search on Google. They don’t just put in “gifts for kids” but “gift for a 6 year old boy”.

    Hi Melissa, the gift ideas shared will go a long way in helping fathers pick the best holiday gift for their kids. But can you recommend a holiday gift for a teenager who is into software development? I am thinking towards a gift that is not too techy, is that a good thing to do?

  3. Thanks, I’ve found some ideas for my offsprings ;D
