The Gift Of Awesome!

I struggle every year with what to get my nieces and nephews for Christmas. They are all fortunate that if they have a need it is fulfilled so gift giving tends to be well, boring. So now I am in the search for unique gifts that will hopefully wow vs. a gift card blah. Here are a few I have come up with!


  1. Kidstir– Teach your child to cook with this monthly subscription box that includes kid-sized cooking tools, kid-friendly recipes, a cookbook binder to keep all the recipes, and more. This subscription box is more affordable than some others, and you can turn the cooking into a fun family activity.
  2. Play Tickets- Get two tickets to a show at a performing arts center or theater.
  3. Give the gift of the Outdoors- Two years ago I gave my dad and brother a white water adventure in the Colorado Rockies. They loved it!
  4. Toys that Teach- I am addicted to Fat Brain Toys! They have very creative toy options that will engage your little ones vs. relying on a button to entertain them.
  5. Indoor Play Space or Trampoline Parks- Almost every city has them now and they are perfect!
  6. Books- I am a huge advocate of reading and encourage the kiddos as much as possible to read!
  7. Museum Memberships- This gives all year long and a great learning experience as a plus.
  8. Amusement Park Season Tickets- A full fun season of rides! Can’t go wrong here.
  9. Photo Books- I am officially a Chatbooks addict! You can create a book with an unlimited amount of photos. In a digital age it is nice to be able to print and have a memory book.
  10. Ski Passes- If you live in a ski area these are a must!
  11. Ski Lessons- Goes great with ski passes!
  12. Snow Tubing Passes- Perfect for all ages.
  13. Sleigh Rides- So much fun especially in the snow.
  14. Pottery making classes- They are almost in every little town across America and tailor to all ages.
  15. Painting classes- I went to one and loved it! My mom still has the painting I did for her.
  16. Cooking classes- This one is so much fun and of course being a cook myself enjoy giving these.
  17. Plane ticket- If you have that one person you really want to see why not get them a ticket to come visit!
  18. State Park Passes- The Rocky Mountain National Park pass is a great one. There is also National Park Passes that you can purchase to gift.
  19. Zoo Season Pass
  20. Aquarium Season Pass
  21. Horseback riding lessons- I grew up with horses and this is near and dear to my heart.

This is just a small list of the gifts I have given and give still. What are some memorable gifts that you have given?
