There’s just something about the holidays that feels truly magical when you’re a kid. Baked goods and parties and twinkle lights … what’s not to love? And the best part? The thrill of receiving that perfect gift … the one you will remember with fond memories well into your adult years. For me that perfect gift was a tetherball (and the accompanying pole my dad set up in our backyard) when I was nine years old — I still remember it all these years later. So if you’re looking for the perfect gift idea your child will always remember, here’s some ideas that might just be perfect …
1. B. Pop-Arty Beads
2. The Book with No Pictures by B.J. Novak
My mom recently bought this book for my daughter and she just loves it! I was a bit skeptical that a book without pictures would appeal to the littler kid set, but B.J. Novak killed it. This book gets kid humor just right. It’s a great introduction into chapter books, too.
