It’s been a long two years filled with stress and worry, and it’s hard to overlook the impact it’s had on the children in our lives. They’ve had to live through missed days at school or daycare, quarantining because of possible exposure, missed field trips and vacations, and canceled holiday parties at school. This year still brings hope of more normal holidays, but there will still be the underlying concern about our well-being and the health of those around us.
Because of that, we thought it would be fun to put together a list of amazing, creative, and out-of-this-world gift ideas for the children in our lives. Toys that will allow them to use their imaginations, go on adventures, and have a little majesty in their lives. We tried to fill every niche, from memberships to clubs that fulfill the dreams of crafting or woodworking to inflatable play forts and art supplies.
By now, the word is out that we all need to be proactive with our shopping this year because of material shortages and shipping delays. Not necessarily because gift-giving is the most important part of the holiday season – we tend to believe it’s more about family togetherness and the love that we share. But because stressing out about on-time delivery is no way to spend your pre-holiday days.
With that, here are some fun items for the kiddos in our lives!
