12 Days of Christmas ~ Day 5 ~ Kids Gift Guide 


If you are like me, you know the struggle with buying the kids in your life Christmas gifts. Their parents desperately wish for less 'stuff' in their spaces while you still want the joy of Christmas to be a wonderful memory for them. I have come up with my list of gifts that will provide experiences they will remember forever! 



Subscription Boxes

I love the idea of a fun surprise showing up throughout the year. It's the gift that keeps on giving! The cool thing about these is they are educational and they are something that the gift giver can do with the child as they are all learning activities. You can choose the appropriate age box for your children and you can choose the frequency of the deliveries. There are 1 month, 3 month, 6 month and 12 month options.

Live Productions 

Most city's have children's theater or traveling productions that come into the city for a few days at a time. These aren't as exciting on Christmas morning as a toy but the special day together will be remembered long after the holidays are over. 


Calgary has a few great options! The first is the Loose Moose Theater

Do something fun like enroll your little one in a cooking class! Calgary has a bunch of great options for kids to build confidence and independence through learning something new. Here are a few great options.
