Christmas is rapidly approaching! Toys are always on the Christmas list. Here are a few non toy gift ideas for the children in your life.
There are so many wonderful, child focused museums! Most big cities have a dedicated Children’s museum. For older children, there are many hands on science museums. A yearly membership can range from $50-100+ for a family of four. This is a great gift to give to the entire family.
A zoo membership is another wonderful gift for a child or family. Most zoo memberships range from $100-$200 for a family of four. This is a great way to be outside with the whole family. Most memberships also include a few guest passes. This allows you to join in on the fun!
My girls LOVE their dance classes. Most dance/music/karate/movement classes have a monthly fee. Gifting even one month of classes is a wonderful gift for both the child and the parent. Classes range from $20-80 a month.
Buying a special movie for a child is a great gift. Even better is taking them to see a movie. The experience and memory will last longer than any toy! Make it a special outing just for them.
My children love to play games. Something as simple as a deck of cards or a board game can lead to hours of fun. Joining in on the fun will make this present even more magical.
Books are always a big hit around our house. Christmas is the perfect time to share your favorite book with the children in your life. A book from your childhood or a new favorite.
Planning a special outing is the best gift to be given. This can be simple or elaborate. A trip to the ice cream shop, the arcade, the library, even the park. Spending special time with children and making memories are what they will treasure for years to come.
