If there are kids in your life (whether they’re yours, your sibling’s, or a friend’s), you probably want to buy things for them. Giving kids gifts is always an adventure because if you give a child something and they don’t like it, you’ll know. So when you set the personal challenge for yourself to achieve a positive reaction from your young recipient, it’s particularly satisfying when you succeed. To help you with this task, we’ve compiled a list of gifts for children with various interests and personalities.

P.C. Richard and Son had the amazing honor of being able to donate two televisions to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at UConn Health. The TVs have been installed at the wash stations, where everyone who enters the unit is required to spend three minutes washing their hands.
The TVs display important information for people to read while they wash their hands, including guidelines for how to properly handle the babies.
