Christmas Gift Ideas: Gift for Kids

Hey Everyone,

As promised, Christmas gift ideas!  Perhaps a few of you need to buy gifts for your child(ren), niece or nephews, and have no idea what to get.  Sure there's those typical ideas of getting Lego, or toy cars, or an action figure, but to me that's what everyone gets nowadays.  It's hard to be creative, and it's also hard to pick out what to get when you are in the toys aisle at the department store.

Personally, I hate it when I am stuck in that situation... I plan to go Christmas shopping, and I think "I'll just figure out what to get when I get to the store...".  That never ends up well, I'm sure you know what I mean!  I get to the store, and I can't decide at all what to get... everything is laid out saying to me "pick me!  pick me!", its like being totally pulled apart.

What's worse about buying for kids is that I'm not a kid, and it's hard to figure out something good on the spot.  I realize it is important to have a good idea of what to get BEFORE going to the store.  So here is what I think a good suggestion for a gift for young kids...

Yes, PlayDoh!
I must say, this is not outside the box, it is still a great gift.  Most people will go for the Barbie dolls or the expensive Lego packages, but somehow overlook this.  It's fun, it's creative, just make sure the recipient is NOT TOO YOUNG, otherwise it'll be more of a pain than joy.  This is MUCH better than a box of chocolates (given the right circumstances)!  And I'm sure it will be much appreciated =).  Maybe this Christmas, this idea may come in handy to you when shopping for gifts; it is reasonably priced, and it is easy to find.  

Until next time, thanks for reading!

I spent last weekend playing with play-doh with a 5 and 3 year old, messy but fun! If you go this route I'd suggest buying some wax paper to lay down on the table first!

I can't remember when anyone in my family received simple gifts such as Playdoh anymore. Seems it's always electronics or clothes these days.

I like play-doh, but you can make the stuff at home way cheaper, and you can make it whatever color you want (as long as you have the right food color)
