Hello Mamas (and Papas), are you also looking for Useful Non-Toy Gift Ideas For Kids? If so, keep reading because that’s what I’m sharing with you today.

These non-toy items are excellent gift ideas for your kids, nieces, nephews, and other kids in your family circle this coming Christmas and other occasions like birthdays, and New Year. And if you are living in Spain like us, these can also be good gift ideas for 3 Kings.

I am not against toys at all. But I am looking for ideas on what to give my kids on their coming birthdays (October and December) and Christmas that are not toys since they already have more than enough toys in my opinion.

And besides, #1 is going to turn 4 this coming October and at his age, he can already appreciate gifts that are not toys. And I find it nice to start gifting him useful things that he can use most days be it at home or at school.
