Holiday Gift Shopping Meets Back-To-School Gear

    HOLLYWOOD, Fla., Nov. 20 /CNW/ -- It's the holiday shopping season, but
it's also almost back-to-school time again for kids returning to their
classrooms after the winter break.  Debra Holtzman, child safety expert and
author of The Safe Baby, recommends shopping for gifts with an eye toward the
second half of the school year.

    According to Holtzman, children can be enthusiastic about practical
gifts. The OnGuard Kids Personal Safety Alert System is a brightly colored
digital wristwatch that comes with a built-in 110-decibel alarm as well as a
DVD of practical safety measures (
    Kids can use the watch to draw attention if they are approached by a
threatening stranger or a school bully. The item is designed for a serious
purpose, but the choice of styles and interchangeable faceplates make it a
welcomed gift.

    Debra recommends more gift ideas to combine holidays with school days.

    Fill the book bag.  Generally kids are using the same school textbooks
    when they return after winter break.  Choose some related fiction or
    reference books to bolster their text learning and give them a boost when
    learning new material.

    Tech Tools.  Computers and educational software are available for every
    age and ability and most of it is designed with entertainment value too.
    Choose those that are entertaining and challenging.

    Fun and games.  Puzzles, reading games and counting toys add up to fun.
    Children play and learn at the same time and these items supplement
    classroom lessons.

    Crafty kids.  For school projects, new crayons and markers, decorative
    hole punchers, pretty drawing papers and other art essentials enrich

    Fashion forward.  Children lose outerwear faster than they outgrow it.
    Replacing lost hats, gloves and scarves in new styles and colors will
    encourage children to dress for the chilly school season ahead.
