31 Days of Toys: Non-Toy Gifts

The past few years our little family {which was then just the hubby and me} have been shifting towards gifting "experiences" rather than gifts. Don't get me wrong...we still gifts sometimes, but really the transition has been a lot of fun. We really don't feel like we need any more stuff anyway. For example, last Christmas he gifted me a night away in the mountains. It was a blast! {Side note: we found out I was pregnant the day after we got back. So in a sense it was an early babymoon since we didn't get one while I was on {modified} bedrest.}  

The other day I ran across a blog post titled "18 Non-Gift Toys for Children". I loved this idea. Instead of sharing a new toy today I'm going to link up to this post from Nourishing Minimalism today. 

My favorites on this list? Classes {maybe because I asked my Dad to get Little Lady gymnastics classes for her birthday...she is a monkey and I've got to find an outlet for her climbing and rolling/tumbling} and crafting dates. 

If you need some extra food for thought on why "less may be best" check out Becoming Minimalist's post on "Why Fewer Toys Will Benefit Your Kids"
