Tips For Giving Kids A Meaningful Holiday Gift
The holidays give us an opportunity to shower gifts on our friends and family members -- especially the little ones. The youngest may get baby rattles while the older recipients get cozy new sweaters or fancy games to play after the wrapping paper has settled. But it's a special time of year, and you want your kids' gifts to be equally special. It can take a little bit of imagination, so we came up with a few ideas to inspire you.
Give The Gift Of A First
Take them to their first Nutcracker ballet, first production of "A Christmas Carol," or first pro football game. They'll treasure the memory forever. Make it even more special by framing the program and ticket stubs to display on a wall for all to see.
Give The Gift Of Learning
Sign up to take a class with your child. For the sports-minded, consider tennis or scuba diving lessons or something else you've never tried before. For the homebody, take a gourmet cooking or baking class. For the artsy-craftsy type, try glass blowing or pottery throwing.
Give The Gift Of Time
Do something as a family to help others. Volunteer to work together at a homeless shelter or soup kitchen. Deliver meals to people who are homebound. Or shovel snow off your neighbors' driveways after a snowstorm. You'll have fun, feel good about helping out and store up a wonderful memory.
Give The Gift Of A Keepsake
A gift of jewelry can be meaningful for both boys and girls. An ID bracelet engraved with his name and a sentiment makes a fine gift for a boy. Give a girl a necklace or charm bracelet with charms that represent her interests, hobbies or achievements. Another great idea is a charm bracelet to which you add charms through the years.
Give The Gift Of Life
Plant a tree with your child. Then watch it grow over the years. If it's a fruit-bearing tree, you can enjoy eating its fruit. If it's an evergreen, you can decorate it for the holidays. Forever, this tree will have a special place in your hearts.
Give The Gift Of Something Homemade
If you can crochet, knit or sew, surprise your child with a handmade stuffed toy, pillow or mittens. If you work with wood, any treat a special child to a handcrafted wooden dollhouse or wooden racecar.
