Gift giving. Possibly one of my favorite things. When I give gifts, I put a lot of thought and effort behind them. It’s so special to me when I can give a gift with special meaning. I want you to know that I care. That I thought about you. That I love and appreciate you. I want a gift to mean more than a show of money and obligation.
I want my children to be thankful and show gratitude for what they receive. I want them to know the true art behind gift giving – to show our love for one another. Christmas isn’t about receiving outlandish amounts of extravagant gifts. Beyond the traditional Christmas festivities, Santa Clause, and Rudolph, the true meaning behind Christmas is so much bigger. We celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. I want this to be the main focus of our holiday season.
When it comes to kids, it’s hard. Plastic, cheaply made toys that are shoved in a corner and never get touched. Battery operated gadgets that never seem to have working batteries. With an abundance of toys already overwhelming the playroom, what do you give? With the holiday’s just around the corner, I’m sharing some of my favorite items that are perfect to give as gifts for you little ones. Toys that go beyond the shiny new items lining your local Walmart isles and catalogs. Items with a little more meaning, that will last a little longer, and grow with them.
