Or rather, books, toys and puzzles.
I love buying gifts for kids. Between my family and my sister-in-law’s, I have six kids to buy for, ranging in age from my nephew at 8 all the way to my baby at almost 5 months.
Books, of course, are always a safe bet. But I also like to give creativity-inspiring and (yes, that’s the homeschooling mom in me talking!) educational gifts. This year, I hit upon the idea of paper dolls for my nieces and these Dover historical dolls make me wish that I were that age again. Heck, I’d still get a kick out of Regency-themed dolls.
I also discovered some cool activity books from Klutz. The Husband picked up a book-that-is-really-a-castle for the Firstborn who is greatly into armor and knights and whacking bad guys with swords.
Can I just say how much cool fun stuff (as opposed to the cheap junky kind) there is out there for kids? Luckily, I’m a miserly frugal person with a self-imposed spending limit or else all the kids in my family would be buried under presents!
How ’bout you? Did you find any gifts that you are impatient to see unwrapped by the recipient?
