Creative and unique gifts for children

I am super excited to share this post with you today! I have come across some AWESOME gifts for the littles (and made sure to become an affiliate! You can read more about my affiliates HERE.)

It seems like kids these days have way too much toys! I hardly ever buy my toddler toys and I have already had to box some of them up and put them away. But what do you get kids for Christmas and their birthdays? Most kids don’t care for clothing (and they might need more clothes, either), and toys are fun, but really, how often do they really get played with?  I’m all for quality-made, imagination-inducing toys, but sometimes an experience is better.

So what to gift the kids? Here are some ideas!

Little Passports is a monthly subscription where the child gets a virtual trip to a world or USA destination  – the package is filled with activities, souvenirs, fun facts, and more. They even run deals sometimes where you can gift free kits to a teacher with a minimum order.

Kiwi Crate is another subscription based gift (but you do not need to subscribe for more than a month, if you do not want to). Choose from a large variety of crafts, or just browse their DIY tutorial section! There are so many cool craft crates to choose from, I don’t know which one is my favorite. My Godchild would love getting one of these in the mail and as a parent, I love this type of gift. PLUS they have an awesome rewards/referral program.

Green Kid Crafts is another crafty gift box subscription, but is more focused on being “green.” They have science, nature, and discovery themed kits, and even kits for birthday parties. They even have mini kits ($5.95!) for stocking stuffers!

I See Me has a HUGE selection of books (coloring and activity books, too) to customize, from name to picture. They even have special gifts for babies. When I was little, I LOVED the book I had with my name in the story.

 

Braided Bracelet by Darby Smart
Darby Smart is a craft gift box, too, but has all sorts of trendy projects to choose from for the older child, teen, or adult. There really is a HUGE selection of projects, from jewelry to block printing.

Abe’s Market, one of my favorite retailers, has a large selection of eco-friendly children’s toys and craft supplies that you will definitely not find in stores. I’m a fan of the bath puzzles (and only $10.99).

Coolest fish tank ever

Have you seen this? It’s called the AquaFarm

aquafarm

The AquaFarm is a self-cleaning fish tank that grows food! Grow organic produce like basil, lettuce and wheatgrass right from the comfort of your own kitchen or classroom. This closed-loop ecosystem uses the fish-waste to naturally fertilize the plants above and in turn, the plants clean the water for your pet fish.

• Self-cleaning fish tank that grows food. Fish waste feeds the plants. Plants clean the water.

• Includes everything you need to get started as well as organic seeds and a discount coupon for a Betta fish (Fish not included in kit).

• Sleek and attractive design with 3-gallon capacity.

• Perfect for your kitchen or classroom. Also makes a great gift.

• Designed and manufactured in California.

How awesome! I think this would be the perfect gift for someone who has everything, or for the small child who wants a pet but who isn’t quite ready for the responsibility of feeding a fish every day. I seriously think I may get this for my dad and step-mom, who are the hardest to shop for, ever!
