Gift Idea: Consider connecting a gift to your child’s special interest or talent.
If art is his thing, consider time at the local make-your-own-clay-sculpture shop or an art lesson at the local college of design.
If dance or music is his thing, consider tickets for the ballet, symphony, or a touring concert.
If she is interested in the theater, try tickets to a travelling Broadway show or acting lessons through a children’s theater association.
And then there are the sports enthusiasts. Consider tickets to their favorite team’s game or maybe a team shirt or hat signed by a favorite player. If the team happens to be a local college team, think who you know that could help you get the signature. Someone you know from work or the neighborhood may know someone at the college who could help. Another way to make the arrangements is to just be at a game and stop and talk with one of the college administrators or sports media representatives.
