    Anything to get your kids into creativity, craft kits, art supplies. I gave my daughter a mini sewing machine and all my scraps and she loved making clothes for her dolls.

    Memories! Once they’re maybe 4 or 5, I always suggest an experience (with a small memento) or supplies/tools for an experience (bonus if it’s reusable).

    I like giving art kits or model kits plus making something myself. This year I’m making drawstring backpacks with names embroidered on them.

    I like to offer craft supplies to make hand puppets like felt, fabric glue and googly eyes. Last year, with my nephew and nieces, I handled the sewing of the puppets. We made it a family activity and we had a blast!

    Voor mij zijn gezelschapsspelletjes het ideaal geschenk voor kinderen. Ze leren er om rekening te houden met anderen en ze leren ook dat je in het leven niet altijd kan winnen.

    Any gift without plastic packaging. I think it should be handmade pajamas or handmade toys. Just to teach kids that not everything is about money, but about love.

    It obviously depends on the child. My 9 yo daughter wants fabric and notions for her sewing machine. My 5 yo son likes any kind of imaginative building toys and board games.
