10 Tips for Buying Gifts for Other Children — 2 Comments

  1. What a thoughtful post … I agree it is hard for some family members and/or friends to realize that just because its labelled a toy doesn’t always mean that its appropriate as a gift. I am very determined to keep “toy” guns out of our house … guns are for a purpose (and our 4 year old is learning how to correctly use his BB Gun – supervised and locked in the gun safe when not in use) and children need to understand this and how dangerous they can be.

    On a positive note, I think I am down to getting one present (and I know what I want to get) and we started wrapping gifts this afternoon 🙂

  2. I echo these thoughts! We are kind of picky with toys as well – and try not to overload on anything that is not appropriate or that we just don’t like. {Barbie, Bratz, Monster High, etc}. It kind of helps that the girls are into Disney Princesses right now….but we don’t have Ariel or Jasmine because their costumes are revealing.

    We are 95% done. I have a few that I’m working on, but we went out last night and got the rest in 1 fell swoop. Good thing too, since Baby L arrived my spare time has dwindled down to 0. {grin}
