#SparklingSMallidays: What Kids Want for Christmas | Lifestyle.INQ

OCTOBER 27, 2022

As each day inches us closer to the holidays, Lifestyle.INQ and SM Supermalls have partnered up for a series all about gift-giving. Let us help you figure out what’s best to get for your loved ones. We’re thinking of starting early so that you can have time to think about a present that would match the different personalities in your life: from the foodie to the techie, and from children to those who are still kids at heart. Watch out as each week we will have videos and lists all to help you get just what you need to spread Christmas cheer.

Nothing quite compares to seeing the excitement on a child’s face upon opening gifts come Christmas day, especially when you’ve chosen what they would absolutely love.


But let’s face it, with the endless amount of options available, it can get quite tricky to pick gifts that would peel-away your kids from their screens and keep them engrossed during play time.

To make this holiday season easier, we’ve rounded up some of the best toys your kids would want to get their hands on. What better way to test them than with kids themselves who candidly shared their two cents’ worth?


From toys that nurture creativity through pretend-play sets and building bricks to other educational toys that would spark their various interests and action figures and dolls that let them use their imagination, we give you gift ideas guaranteed to make the holidays extra special for your little ones—without breaking the bank. Watch the video below to discover the latest toys that made it to our list!



To make the holidays even more exciting, a visit to Kidzoona should do the trick. The unique indoor playground provides an alternative entertaining environment through sports, arts and crafts, and other interactive activities.


Kidzooona is a unique playground for children to help them naturally develop their communication skills, manner, and tolerance when playing together with other friends.


Whether your little one’s an art lover, a budding chef, or an adventure seeker, you’re bound to find the perfect gift—one that would surely light up your child’s face; and that is absolutely priceless.  Happy shopping!
