As the holiday season quickly approaches, I have been pulling together some of my reader’s favorite non-toy gift ideas. The list is great for a variety of ages, from children in preschool to teenagers in high school. I know a lot of parents are working hard to make the holidays less about “stuff.” Others want to limit the influx of “stuff” coming into their home. Our family falls into both camps, so I’m using this list as a starting point when family and friends ask about what to get the kids for Christmas.
- Sleeping bags
- Art supplies
- Magazine subscriptions (see ideas at the bottom of this post)
- Museum memberships
- Monogram bags
- Lunch box (Planetbox for older kids, Yumbox for younger ones)
- Personalized plates, water bottles, snack bags
- Lessons and the needed uniform or supplies
- Tickets to an event or zoo
- Ski passes and a new pair of ski equipment
- Bean bag chairs or child size furniture
- Craft box subscription (Kiwi Crate or Wummelbox)
- Beach towel
- Bird feeder
- Play rug
- Science kit
- Alarm Clock
