Non-toy Gift Ideas

Recently we asked our followers on Facebook to chime on what non-toy gifts they like to give children.  We received many great ideas that we would like to share with you. We think these are great ways to give children something unique and something that doesn’t add to a parents growing pile of toys.  In all honestly, those toys my kids have gotten as gifts, generally don’t get played with a ton.  What they would really treasure is TIME with loved ones or EXPERIENCES that will create memories. Keep this page handy for when those gift opportunities arise.  We will continue to add ideas as we think of them.
