    mini cookware... like a mixing bowl of their own, utensils of their own, apron and oven mits of their own etc.

    A "trip" somewhere - like bowling, a theme park, a zoo, etc.

    A keepsake, or something that'll grow in value as years progess... I know someone who started collecting coins in mint condition from all over the world as soon as his grandchildren were conceived. They each get it when they reach adulthood (they get an album each).

    A CD player

    A diary/journal for older kids. I started one when I was 13.

    Nice idea for an adult perhaps but I would have cried and cried if I got that for a pressie as a kid hahahaha.

    I think books and board games are always a winner. Why are we looking for non-toy presents anyhow?

    I like this thread for ideas that I will be using for sure. I have a friend that sells everything her kids get. I have now seen something I gave her kids for sale that I only just gave to them this Xmas. So I won't be giving them anything she can sell anymore. Coz I don't think they even get to play with them. Her daughter was in my wedding and I asked her for the dress she was wearing back because i wanted to put it in a frame as a keep sake like my own dress, she said she has put it away to give her daughter later... I have a feeling she has sold that too.
    From now on I will be giving them coloring books, recipes and ingredients, things that will be fun for a minute but nothing I am going to spend lots of money on not when I buy for $50 she sells for $5 not impressed. if they had out grown it that's fine but it hasn't even been 3 months. So I'll be watching this thread for ideas :-)

    I bought my 6yo step niece a little makeup bag and a little pot of that solid perfume stuff and she loved it. It's fun shopping for kids once they get a bit older.
