The time came and all of the toys were piled there in a pile right smack dab center of my boy’s room. Mind reeling, I couldn’t take it anymore. The mess is overwhelming but even more than that, were any of these things practical gifts for kids? How are their minds being challenged or inventors being cultivated?

I’m way past the fast food toys or the cheap plastic that breaks with one wrong move. Let’s get real, I’ve got 2 girls and 5 boys in a row! The energy and we’ll call it ‘enthusiasm’ gets intense around our home. Even more important is a desire that my children have things that are going nourish and help them thrive.

The needless mess that comes off the shelves these days is overwhelming. As a collective whole if we cared more about quality over quantity our children would be much better off.

Even the gifts of faith the 3 Wisemen bring to Jesus were practical. Gold symbolized kingship but also a monetary resource. Frankincense was mixed with oil to anoint the priest. Of course, Jesus is recognized as the most-high priest. And Myrrh which was used as an embalming oil. Practical gifts are not a new concept, on the contrary, it’s a forgotten one.

SEEK OUT A PRACTICAL GIFT FOR KIDS

The time has come with all the hype of Black Friday, I get it, the struggle for money can be tough. Hear this out though. Is it cheaper or true savings if you have to replace those shirts next season or the toy break next week? What about those old toys grandma has had for decades and they are still going strong. That’s the real value.

Think long-term and practical. What will your child learn from the gift? Or what will it help cultivate? Small motor skills, imagination, creativity, forward thinking, out of the box ideas, what purpose does any of it serve?

Ya know, even a shirt can serve a bigger purpose if it says Jesus Saves on it. That’s a shirt that speaks volumes more than a plain green t-shirt on any given day.

So with that in mind, the rooms cleaned and armored with a fresh outlook. Toys and random clothing are no longer the norm.

Here are some amazing gifts of faith as well as practical gifts for kids.
