Non-Food Gift Ideas are timely for holidays, birthdays, and any gift giving occasion. Especially, when it comes to giving to kids and teens. Non-food gift ideas allow you to give while being thoughtful of food sensitivities and sugar levels.
Non-Food Gift Ideas
Games. Good for all ages and genders. Also lots of game choices available for a range of budgets. Bonus: screen-free, cable-free, and device-free! I bought some Rory’s Story Cubes (not sponsored…I really bought them and really like them) and they are great. You roll the cubes and whatever pictures come up top — you make up a story. We do it in both English and French (language skills). And my whole family can play.
Activity books. Engaging, keeps kids busy, fun. I bought a Lego Star Wars book (which comes with a mini-figure) as a birthday present for my son’s classmate…and it was a HIT. So much so…my son asked if I can buy him the same one.
Boredom Busters. Shameless plug…I know. But my book is pretty awesome to give. With more than 50 activities, recipes, science experiments, and crafts Boredom Busters by Caroline Fernandez (me) entertains all year long.
Music. I know…cds are old skool now. But darn it…I’m buying them anyway for road trips (plus, I haven’t figured out how I can buy a song from the google store). For teens, you might want to gift a music gift card (itunes, google play).
Tickets. Tickets to a show. Tickets for the movies. Tickets to a destination. Tickets for whatever. Tickets are a treat. They means you are going somewhere…doing something. It breaks the routine. Tomorrow, we’re going to the Zoo…and yes I’m buying tickets.
Gift basket. Ask any girl, teen, or lady..and she will tell you gift baskets are fun. It doesn’t have to be big. Small gift basket. Gift stuff in a mason jar. Gift basket in a bag. Doesn’t matter the packaging…a gift basket is always good. I’d stick with products which are sensitive to all skin types…like Aveeno.
