As they always say, the best gift you can give your kids is your valuable time. Spend time together as a family, head out and explore new places and share many laughs together. A short outing to the park as a family together is any day better than the best of children's cartoons! Got a few days off? Hit the road to a nearby weekend getaway and enjoy with the kids! Else, you can even get your kids tickets to the theme parks or water parks in your city and schedule a family fun outing- they will be overjoyed!

3. The gift of knowledge
The biggest worry for every parent is to keep their kids engaged and entertained for a considerable duration of time. All of us will agree that every new toy that you would have got your child would have been opened with great excitement but in precisely 17.5 minutes, they get bored and the new toy just get tossed in a corner of your house! Why not gift them something new and exciting every month instead of a one-time gift? That's when subscription boxes come into the picture.
From games based on Theory of Multiple Intelligence to easy and creative arts and crafts, these subscription boxes knock your doors with interesting activities every month. Check out this list of the best subscription boxes you need to consider before buying.
4. The gift of travel activities
As much as we dread travelling with the kids or planning a vacation with them that involves long car rides or a flight journey, the little minds have their own worries too! In a restricted environment, where they are to display their best behaviour is a challenge for any child! Don't worry entertaining your kids when travelling is easy and here's how! You don't have to spend a lot on expensive gadgets or toys- but here are some useful DIY portable travel activity kits that we hope will come in handy!

Find out what's latest and what will help your child in the future and plan a gift for them? Confused with the options? Here are our suggestions. Introduce your kids
6. The gift of memories
The minute I click a snap of my little girl in her favourite dress, she wants to see the snap, mentions the corrections in the lighting and background and then asks me to share it on Whatsapp! Everybody loves memories and children take an affection to it, more than anyone else. Capture your best moments from a recent holiday or a family get together and breathe life into them and watch the priceless smile and joy in your child's faces!
If you love the easy way of sharing pics through your phone, you know you are going to love Snapstore. This App lets you create polaroids, photo books or albums through and prints and delivers them at your doorstep! Check out KSP Review here.
