My kids have hit the age where they are regularly getting invited to birthday parties. And birthday parties mean gifts. But these days, it feels as if kids have way too much stuff in general. I don’t feel right about adding to the pile of stuff that another parent has to deal with. So I got to brainstorming and I came up with 52 gift ideas for kids that aren’t just toys. These are gifts of experiences or education or creativity. And I’m totally gonna use some of these ideas for my own kids too. No more rushing to the store to purchase whatever toy I can find. It’s time for thoughtful gifts with imagination and purpose.
