These meaningful gifts for kids are some great non-toy options! Christmas gifts for kids can quickly lead to toy overwhelm. It has happened in our home on far too many occasions. This is why every year I seek to be intentional with what we are purchasing and look for some non-toy gift ideas.

Meaningful Gifts for Kids
There are tons of kid-friendly magazines that you can subscribe to. This is such a fun way for a child to learn and it brings excitement every month! Some of our favorites are Ranger Rick, Highlights, and Ladybug.
Wrap It Up Tip: Pick up the recent copy of the magazine from the bookstore and wrap it.
Wrap It Up Tip: Wrap everything together in a cute tin or box.
Just as with a magazine, this will be a continual gift.
My boys (age 10 and 7) absolutely loved this box. It is all about coding. I really loved that it involved technology in a way that was intentional. You can learn more here.
Groovy Lab in a Box
If you have kids who love science, this is a great option. I would suggest this box for older elementary kids. It was a bit intensive for my younger son. You can learn more here.
Some other box subscriptions for kids:
Wrap It Up Tip: Print the flyer and add a note about what is to come!
Membership to Local Place
What local attractions would be fun for your child to visit? Think of the zoo, aquarium, museum, etc.
Wrap It Up Tip: Purchase the membership and print it off. Include a date that you will visit for the first time!
Has your child wanted to take a class to learn a new skill? This is the perfect time to purchase some music, art, ballet, gymnastics, or karate lessons!
Wrap It Up Tip: Purchase the membership and wrap the information sheet from the place. If their lessons will need specific shoes or clothing, consider purchasing these and wrapping it all together.
- Art Supplies: Put together a kit of all of the fun art supplies! Use a caddy or a plastic storage bin. Add in markers, drawing paper, crayons, colored pencils, stickers, Washi tape, glue, etc.
- Play Dough Kit: Use a plastic bin and add in some play dough and play dough tools to help them play with them.
Wrap It Up Tip: Put these kits into containers so the container is the gift wrap. You can then cover it with a bag or wrapping paper.
