Holiday Gifts and the “Magic Ingredient”

It seems that that the pressures that have been squeezing parents for the past couple of years may have started to focus us in a way that is actually good for our kids. When it comes to gifts, is the scarcity of Zhu Zhu Hamsters a blessing in disguise?

I just finished assembling my all time favorite gift of a 4-year-old (she’s brilliant but she can’t read yet– it’s a dress-up box!) Why is it a favorite? It’s a great ‘return on investment’ — inexpensive and, like so many of classics, lacking only one ingredient: creativity. The child’s imagination.

The cool thing about that magic ingredient? The more of it you use the more of it you have. Isn’t that an amazing value?
