Practical Gifts For Kids

The Case For Giving Children Practical Presents

With all the excess that comes along with the holidays, it can be a good time to teach kids valuable lessons about giving back and reigning it in. There are many ways to give a practical gift while still having something to show for it when it's time to unwrap the presents. If you donate in your child's name to Oxfam, for example, the charity will send you a card and a plush toy of the animal you've purchased for a family living in poverty. If you want to share the importance of saving, buy your child a share or two in his favorite company, like Disney or Build-A-Bear, and receive a plaque. You can also buy a cute piggy bank so the tot can collect her coins. Do you buy practical presents for your kids during the holidays? What are you planning to gift this year?
