12 non-toy gift ideas
Whether you have no clue where to start when choosing kids’ playthings or you think most children have too many toys already, this list of awesome gifts is for you.
I have three young children, so I attend many birthday parties and buy a LOT of gifts for kids. But for some reason, I’m rarely compelled to buy toys (unless an amazing new Tot product catches my eye!).
I like to offer presents that are unique, special and personal, and that the receiver will hopefully keep for years to come. And books! I absolutely love giving the gift of reading. Here are 12 of my favorite non-toy gifts.
