It's common and completely normal for very little children to have very big fears. Loud noises, new faces, and strange places are sure to have children clutching for their parents. But when do those normal...
We started seeing last minute shopping notices two weeks ago, and we brushed them off without thinking twice! Now that we’re just ten days away from Christmas, that “last minute” moniker is starting to feel a little more accurate. This year, we are still focusing on experiences for the ones we love most, and we have put together a list of fun ideas if you’re still on the hunt for the perfect gift for your perfect loved one!
For Your Nieces and Nephews
Give your niblings the gift that keeps on giving, literally! Subscription services can deliver the goods once a month for three, six, or twelve months to the little ones you love! KiwiCo offers STEM projects for children of all ages and interests. Universal Yums delivers snacks from around the world, offering a hands-on and absolutely delicious exploration of the world around them through the universal language of food. Each box includes an informational packet, activities, trivia, a map of the land your snacks are arriving from, and between 5 and 20 snacks per box. Cratejoy has a box for even the hardest to shop for, from toddlers to teens, from books to baked goods! You’ll certainly find something for absolutely everyone on your list!
For the Hard-to-Shop For
World Wildlife Fund, or your local zoo
For more than 60 years, World Wildlife Fund has been supporting wildlife conservation with help from donations from families just like yours. This holiday, you can symbolically adopt an animal from WWF, anything from an Arctic Fox to a Zebra, and receive a giftable plush for your support! You can increase your donation and receive a Tub of Cubs, a Bucket of Frogs, a Tub of African Wildlife, and more! What better gift is there than helping preserve the planet your child is growing up on, and teaching them the simple and important art of caring for the animals who call it home?
For Your Parents or Grandparents
Their Legacy, In Print
More pictures and videos are taken every single day than were taken in the first forty years of your grandparents’ lives. While it’s common for absolutely everything to be documented now, do you know the story of how your grandparents met? Of your mother’s favorite Christmas as a kid? Do you know how your grandfather got into his line of work? These stories are part of the fabric of your family, and Storyworth is on a mission to help you preserve them for a lifetime. When you purchase a Storyworth package for your loved ones, they will receive a weekly email prompt, asking them questions you might not have thought to ask. At the end of a year, Storyworth will combine these conversations into a beautifully bound book your family can cherish. Don’t let a single story go forgotten!
For the Young Chef
If a little person you love is showing an interest in cooking, take a little pressure off of your home’s kitchen manager by signing them up for Raddish! The cooking subscription includes a new meal kit every month with a laminated recipe card, step-by-step instructions, shopping list, and access to cooking videos and lesson plans to make this culinary experience a snap!
For The Wonder Bunch Fan
