6 Ideas for a Kids’ First Aid Holiday Gift Basket

It always easier to shop for the kids on your holiday gift list than it is to shop for their parents. How ‘bout something for everyone? Put together a kids’ first aid gift basket. Sure, the newby parents on your gift list have baby aspirin, hydrogen peroxide and tweezers, but these 6 unique, fun kid-centric items give a first-aid kit or medicine cabinet a little pizazz.

1. Retro Ice packs

Fun medical gifts for kidsSkip the frozen peas and the plastic Ziploc bag full of ice. Instead, get a couple of these straight-out-of-a-fifties-slapstick-sitcom retro ice packs. Include this in your gift basket, and the kids will have a little more fun despite a bruised knee or bumped head.

2. Patterned Bandages

Patterned Band Aids for ChristmasFrom princesses and pirates to bacon and eggs, bandages come in every zany color and pattern you can imagine. Pick up four or five inexpensive boxes of various designs to encourage happy healing.

3. Electronic Thermometer

Ear Thermometer for ChristmasTry this ear thermometer (shown on the left) for quick doctor-office-like temperature checks on the little ones. If you’d prefer the classic oral temp-taking, get one of these fun and cartoonish animal shaped thermometers. Be sure to include a gift receipt so mom or dad can return or exchange this item if it’s not quite perfect for their kids.

4. Child I.D. & Records Kit

Children Identification kit

This inexpensive record and ID kit for kids (shown above) keeps all necessary emergency information in one central location. For babysitters or emergency medical professionals, access to this information could prove to be life-saving.

5. Red Wash Cloths

Red Wash Cloths for kids

Show off your child-rearing skills (even if you’re just faking it) and give the gift of these blood-disguising red washcloths. Using these to clean up a scraped elbow or sliced finger will keep kids from the trauma of seeing their own spilt blood. Trust me.

6. First-Aid Book

First Aid book for ChristmasWhen it comes to caring for kids, you can never have TOO much information. Finish your gift basket with one of these simple-to-use First Aid books: First Aid for Babies and Children from DK Publishing; Baby & Child Emergency First Aid: Simple Step-By-Step Instructions for the Most Common Childhood Emergencies by Mitchell J. Einzing; or First Aid for Families from the American Academy of Pediatrics.

There is no better way to show your friends and family that you love them then to show that you love their kids just as much. Happy holidays!
