Thinking of Christmas gift ideas for kids can be tricky. You want them to enjoy their Christmas, but you don’t want to add too many toys to the pile they already never play with, right? This year, try giving your kids gifts that aren’t really toys at all. And don’t worry, that doesn’t mean that they aren’t fun! Check out the following Christmas gift ideas that aren’t toys.
A garden tool kit might be the perfect thing to help introduce your child to the wonders of gardening. And what kid doesn’t really love digging in the dirt? This gives them license to do it, but learn and explore at the same time. Who knows? You may have a budding green thumb on your hands! This kit is available at Amazon for under $17.
This “toy” is certainly not meant for mindless fun! With the Lego Boost Creative Toolbox, your kid can learn all about coding and programming–useful skills in today’s technologically based world. This kit won a Toy of the Year Award for 2018. That’s how awesome it is!
Does your kid enjoy musical theatre? Give them tickets for their favorite Broadway show! Anytime you can give an experience rather than a toy, it’s a definite plus. Creating memories is always better!
Puzzles are one of my favorite Christmas gift ideas. Puzzles teach kids how to think analytically. The sense of accomplishment they can gain from completing a difficult puzzle is worth the time spent. Older kids might enjoy a 4D puzzle such as this Harry Potter 4D puzzle with over 890 pieces in three layers. Work on it with them for valuable family time!
Give your child the gift of art–an art class, that is. If they aren’t into art, give a gift that reflects their interests. How about a karate or dance class? Christmas gift ideas that encourage your kids to develop their talents are gifts they’ll thank you for as they grow older.
