Kids and Teens can pose quite the gifting challenge during the Holidays. In such an electronics driven culture, it's difficult to find a Holiday gift on their list that isn't a tablet or an app. If you're looking for something a little more... traditional with a dose of culture... try these gifts this year:
Kids 5-10 years old : My Neighbor Totoro
My Neighbor Totoro is an amazing animated film from 1988. It is beautifully done and the characters still capture the hearts of children to this day. This gift is a really special film a child won't soon forget.
Kids 10-14 years old: A Really Short History of Nearly Everything
An exciting and fun way to look at the world around us, this book begins with the author proclaiming, “there isn’t anything in existence—not a thing—that isn’t amazing and interesting when you look into it.”
Teens 14-18 years old: Vinyl Records
Digital music is convenient and fun, but the sound suffers in this format. Introduce teens to the warmer sound of vinyl. It's a great way for them to learn how sound is recorded and the quality is superior to any of the music on their iPods. Most artists still release vinyl as a part of their offerings and the vinyl trend is coming back in full force so it should be easy to find their favorite bands on a record.
