A Guide to the Top Christmas Gifts for Kids in 2022

Christmas is just around the corner, and kids are already writing out the long list of demands that they have been preparing to write all year. Money is tighter this year than ever, with a cost-of-living crisis and rising gas and electricity costs. So that is why here at DID, we pride ourselves on having a large collection of Christmas gifts for kids to help you get your kids exactly what they want this year, at an unbeatable price. So below, we have included a number of different gift ideas that are likely to be hugely popular among kids across the nation this Christmas. Think of this blog as a helpful hand and a head start, but be quick because, as per usual, we are sure that they will sell out.


For better or for worse, electric scooters are all the rage at the moment, and that means it is very likely that your child will be on the hunt for one of their own. So yes, here at DID we do stock a large selection of regular e-scooters, but they are catered toward adult use because of their fast top speed. It is important to remember that when buying an e-scooter for a child, there are differences between kid-friendly and adult-friendly scooters.

For one, kids' scooters are usually cheaper than adult ones, and secondly, they have a slower top speed and lower maximum weight capacity. At DID, we also have a small selection of Razor kids manual scooters that would look great under the tree. So browse our overall selection here. For teenagers, check out our wide range of electric scooters.


Another hugely popular gift this year (as has been the case over many years) is the tablet. Kids are looking for more visual stimulation than ever before, and with an influx of child-friendly content being introduced across various platforms such as Netflix, Disney+ and even the various app stores, children want to get their hands on their very own tablet as a matter of urgency.

Thankfully for you (and the lucky kids in your life), we have a large selection of tablets from a host of leading gadget gurus like Apple, Samsung, and even cheap and cheerful brands like Alcatel. We have you covered regardless of your budget and your child’s needs this Christmas. Oh, and if you can’t afford a new tablet right away, we have finance options available too.


A smartphone is like a third arm to most kids and teenagers nowadays, so it checks out that those who do not have one will want one as soon as possible. At DID, we pride ourselves on offering an incredible range of new and refurbished smartphones from brands like Samsung, Apple, Xiaomi, and Alcatel. So whatever your child is looking for, we will certainly have the right smartphone to fit your budget and their desires. You might want to take a look at our protection plans, just in case anything happens to the phone, we all know how accidents can happen! Our protection plans are only a small added cost, but they provide an extended warranty and that all-important accidental damage cover.


The days of wired earphones are gone; chances are, if you have a kid (or know of one), they will gladly tell you how uncool anything wired is. Kids want everything that they get to be the newest and the coolest versions of what their friends have, so don’t be surprised to see earbuds on many a list this year.

As you can imagine, here at DID, we have a massive range of earbuds ranging from the €50 JBL Tune selection to the premium Apple Airpod Pros. Regardless of price, we have earbuds of great quality for everyone in-store and online, and with regular ongoing sales, you’ll be sure to pick up a great pair for your kid this Christmas season.


This gift idea is a little left of center in comparison to the others, but it is just as valid a gift, and here at DID, it is just as popular. If your kid has an interest in astronomy, the stars and space, then a telescope is the perfect gift for them.

In-store and online we have a selection of telescopes that we are sure your child will love. The Celestron range that we stock varies in price from €80-€600, but do not be alarmed because you can always avail of our Humm Finance option, where you can buy now and pay for your telescope later in monthly installments. It is the perfect compromise for those a little short of cash this buying season.

Christmas Gifts for Kids FAQs

How much should you spend on a child's Christmas gift?

This is a difficult one to answer because it all depends on how many toys Santa Clause’s elves have allocated each family. It really depends on what the child is looking for and where you can get the best deal. But we not only do we have unbeatable deals here at DID, but we even have a price match promise so there’s no need to shop elsewhere.
