4 Alternative presents kids will love and their parents will thank you for!

Not that I am dropping any hints or anything, the good samaritan that I am is sharing what I consider as very cool, really practical alternative Christmas gifts … Plus if you’re traveling home for Christmas they won’t take up any space in your luggage!

2. Imaginosity Membership
Starting from €100 for a family of two for six months the Children’s Museum not only offers holders unlimited admission, but also discounts at the gift shop, on parties and seasonal camps, plus extra free passes to bring friends, plus newsletters.

3. Tayto Park Membership

€130 for a year’s membership for 2 Adult + 2 Kids, and with so much to do for all age groups at Tayto Park, what’s not to love!

4. Easons Magazine Subscriptions

Starting at €58 for titles like National Geograhic for Children, a year’s subscription to a magazine is like getting a present in the post every month! There are loads of titles to choose from too, so you are sure to find something for everyone.

And two gifts they won’t thank you for…

1. Drum kit – of any size or for any age group, that is just cruel!
2. Plasticine or maula or anything that ends up in a clumpy mess and walked into your carpet!
