25 Non-Toy Gifts for Kids

Arkansas River Valley Business Directory

It’s becoming more and more common that parents are wishing for their children to receive something different as gifts. Rather than the new toy that poops (why are there so many pooping toys?) or a millionth shiny light up thing that holds their attention for all of twenty minutes- parents are craving something different for their kids.

I’m certain not everyone feels this way, and some kids genuinely love their bright and flashy toys. But for those of us who’s desire it is to have a good Christmas without all the cheap toys I have some suggestions.

Living in rural Arkansas means passes to places may not be practical, we don’t have pottery studios in most of our towns. When perusing a list of non-toy gift ideas those most often pop up. This leaves us in a sort of strange grey area. What can we give kids that’s meaningful and a good gift but also something useful?

1. Clothing

2. Piggy bank and change to go in it

3. Books

4. Movie tickets

5. Stickers

6. Character/personalized plates

7. Specialty cups (tumblers are still so popular)

8. Cooking set

9. Arts and crafts kits

10. Science experiment

11. Gardening supplies

12. Camping tent

13. Jewelry

14. Metal detector

15. Personalized towels

16. At home movie night set

17. Learning tower

18. Silicone plate and bib

19. Electric toothbrush

20. Makeup

21. Bath bombs

22. Face mask

23. Uncommon sweets

24. Tickets to event

25. Vacation/day trip

It may be a bit shocking for kids to receive no toys on Christmas, and we aren’t going to be that extreme. I have prepared the four year old that we aren’t doing many toys this Christmas, and he has asked for vegetable seeds and a greenhouse since I have prepared him for the less toys. I am excited to focus on the true meaning of Christmas and the magic that comes this time of year and less on the gifts we give and receive.
