    *Excellent* list!! I would have welcomed everything you mentioned when my two were wee ones 🙂

    Great list! I’ll add another one — my mother-in-law is great at getting subscriptions. Highlights, for instance, has a magazine out now for babies (and others for older kids). I know there are other baby-centric subscription boxes out there that would be a treat!

    These are all great ideas! Here in San Diego, I know we have all kinds of great non-toy gift options. There are ASL classes for babies, music classes for littles of all ages, the zoo, lots of kid-friendly museums, art classes, and more! Thanks for putting all of these ideas in one convenient place.

    Yes! Great list! Classes at My Gym and Music Together, museum memberships, a zoo membership, and a children’s museum pass are all on our gift list. Highlights High Five is also a fantastic gift idea. Something like Kiwi Crate or a science club subscription is also great. My son adores his monthly Clifford science kit.

    Love all these ideas! Art supplies are always a hit around here and I super appreciate when my kids receive contributions to lessons like swim and ballet. It’s something they get to enjoy every week 🙂

    I love your list, Moorea! I give a lot of books as presents, but I also love to give experiences. The enrichment classes would be unique, easily personalized gifts. 🙂

    Non-toy gifts are the very best kind. Thanks for all your ideas and inspiration.
    Enjoy your holidays.

    Oh man, I wish I had thought of some of these in recent years (to request for my kids). My son is in serious need of sensory bins… though I doubt our family would make them. I need to just do it.

    Also, I love the “permission” to give used books. I wish more people would feel okay with regifting used items. It just makes sense!
