It’s that time of year again. While many cringe at the sight of holiday decorations being sold at stores well before Halloween has even passed, I get excited that my favorite time of the year is just around the corner. And now that Halloween is officially over, it’s time to start getting ready for whatever holiday you happen to be celebrating.
My family celebrates Christmas during the holiday season and Christmas means, among other things, gifts under the Christmas tree.
Not surprisingly, when I was a kid, my favorite part of Christmas was waking up in the morning and sneaking into the family room to get an early peak at what gifts Santa had left for me. I loved to look around and see the gifts spilling out from under the tree and spreading out along the walls. The different-sized gifts poking up from where they were stacked looked like some sort of magical skyline. And the more gifts — the merrier.
To take it a step further, the more themed gifts I got, the better. Why would I want a pair of plain ol’ slippers if I could have Spiderman slippers? Why would I want a regular green backpack if I could have an Incredible Hulk backpack? Why would I want regular blankets if I could have Spiderman blankets? After all, I was the kid who ran around the house with a blanket tucked into the neck of my shirt as I pretended to be a superhero, flying around saving people from whatever evil was lurking around the hallway door.
With the recent success of the The Avengers, there are lots of kids who have become obsessed with superheros. Needless to say, your superhero-obsessed kids are going to want superhero-themed gifts for the holidays just like I wanted when I was a kid.
Here are twelve gift ideas that your little crime-fighters would love to get for the holidays:
