Getting gifts for kids that are too old for toys
PADUCAH, Ky. —
When your kids or grandkids are too old for those stuffed animals, games or toys, what do you get them for Christmas?
Turns out, you still have a lot of options, but you need to act now to have everything you need in time for Christmas morning.
If the kids are too old to care about the latest Disney toy craze, gift-buying can seem more like a chore than something fun. Don’t fear, though. There’s still hope of finding that perfect present.
Put money toward classes, like dancing, riding, drawing or aerobics. This is a great way to encourage your kids to follow their interests. It may even be something you can do together.
If your kids like the local zoo, science museum or YMCA, get them a membership for Christmas. This is a good idea for a family present, too.
This may be exactly what those impossible-to-buy-for teens want – tickets to a concert, a play or even a movie they’re dying to see.
If you don’t want to get one of those generic gift cards this year, think about getting a card for a round of mini golf, bowling or the local skating rink.
Finally, calendars or pocket planners. You can find calendars for young kids that serve as a way to teach them their months, holidays and days of the year. Purse or pocket planners are best for teens and adults and you know they’re good all year.
