Holiday Gifts for the Star Wars Fan
Our family loves Star Wars. One of the many Star Wars movies are featured for our Friday movie night. We chose a Disney Cruise based on the Star Wars Day at Sea. We recently visited Disney World to check out the new Galaxy’s Edge. When gift giving opportunities roll around, I am always on the look out for the best Star Wars gift ideas. There are some pretty fun and exciting gifts out there to choose from. Do they also love to travel? Combine a love of Star Wars with the love of travel and take them to Galaxy’s Edge for one of the ultimate gifts for traveling families. From crazy cool or extremely useful, here are a few other gifts that will please even the most finicky of Star Wars fans.
Gifts for Traveling Tech Loving Families
We like to try to be a low tech family. Generally we spend a lot of time out in nature. Many of our vacations revolve around outdoor activities. But every once in a while we take a trip that requires long travel days. And, then technology plays a part in keeping everyone entertained. Find out our favorite tech gifts for traveling families!
Gifts for Kids Who Love to Cook
We strive to experience different cultures through food. Our daughter has a love of the culinary arts, among other arts. Santa Fe, New Mexico is one of our favorite destinations because of this. An upcoming trip to Costa Rica will likely include a cooking class and chocolate tour. Food is a great way to get to know people, and to understand their culture. Thus the past two gift occasions our daughter has received a stand mixer and instant pot. So, we have an idea of the best gifts for kids who love to cook.
Poop Emoji Gifts
The poop emoji, also known as the pile of poo emoji, has gained a semblance of notoriety. Over the past couple of years through a poop emoji gift war with my sister, I have earned expertise in choosing and delighting family with the very best poop emoji gifts. Enjoy our expertise and find the best poop emoji gifts for your loved ones.
Teaching Your Children to Give Back
While we want to give our loved ones meaningful gifts, it is most important to also teach our children to give back. Before gifts are unwrapped this holiday season, here are some ways to teach your children to give back. Maybe you could even find a way to volunteer on your next vacation as one of the best gifts for traveling families.
