Christmas gift ideas that aren’t toys

What if this year, we gave children Christmas gifts that are not toys? Whether in a more responsible approach towards the wallet, the environment or by wanting non-material gifts, discover our ideas for Christmas gifts other than toys.

Christmas is just around the corner and you start to think about the organization, the decoration and the gifts! A quick walk into the little kids’ room is enough to realize that it is already invaded by a mess of toys! Often expensive, plastic, noisy, they are quickly abandoned, replaced by the next one … Faced with this overconsumption, you need to (re) make sense, you have more ecological and responsible desires for the planet. You want more personal gifts for the children to slip under the tree.

This year, they will receive something to make memories, something to develop their imagination and creativity. And enough to maintain the pretty little stars they have deep in their eyes!
