It seems like many of the conversations I have with other moms lately revolve around the STUFF we are trying to get rid of.
For the past year, I’ve been on a decluttering spree and a move toward simpler, more minimalist living and for the past few years, my mind always comes back to KIDS GIFTS AND TOYS. I try to maintain some level of control over what comes into our home (within reason), and we donate old toys on a regular basis.
I don’t know about you, but my kids don’t need much. They play happily for hours with the simplest of things – what they really want is for someone to engage and interact with them. I always cringe a little on the inside when I hear other parents talking about their playrooms full of toys that never get used….it feels so wasteful.
There are other posts out there with non-toy gift ideas for kids, but they all seem really generic, like “a zoo membership”. I wanted to come up with some really practical, creative ideas that are a little more specific. My hope is that you find these inspiring, and that you can use some of these ideas for your own gifting this year.
