Meaningful Gifts For Your Children

ParentCircle

When it comes to buying a gift for children, you can be spoiled for choices depending on your budget. But is buying the latest gadget or a toy for children always a good idea?

According to waggledance.com.au, “Meaningful gifts are all about old-fashioned adventure, discovery and connection. Think creative activity with a sprinkle of nature, a pinch of nurture and topped off with lasting stories and memories that grow with your child. Have you considered giving an experience rather than more stuff when gifting time comes around?”

Some meaningful ideas can be gifting tickets for a musical concert or a ballet performance depending on your child’s interest. Does your child show an affiliation for dancing or martial arts? Then how about gifting your child with admission into a hobby class? You can also give your child the gift of time. Instead of buying expensive toys for all your children, you can plan a family holiday. If your child loves gardening, how about spending time with her in the yard planting a herb garden? There are plenty of adventure and educational tours for children. How about gifting your child an adventure tour of her choice? Then there are obvious gift choices such as family heirlooms that make ideal gifts for older children and teenagers. If you are artistic, you can make lovely handmade jewellery from beads and crystals. Books also make wonderful gifts that can stay with your child for life.
