It can be so hard to find the right gifts for our kids. Since we added our third little toy-collector to the family 2 years ago, I’ve found it necessary to be extra thoughtful about the kinds of things we bring in to our home.
We used to go willy-nilly through the Black Friday ads, Target aisles, and Costco toy section choosing whatever we thought our kids might like. Now I’m more intentional. I think about the long-term life of a gift in our household, and try to buy gifts that encourage creativity, help teach problem-solving, and help my kids learn new skills and perspectives.
And also, they need to be FUN!
