This holiday season you could spend hours waiting in line at Toys R Us wasting your Thanksgiving away just to get your hands on the Doc McStuffins Get Better Talking Mobile Cart.  Or you could wait till Dec. 1st for Cyber Monday and sit in front of your computer all day waiting to score that great deal on Amazon.  Many of those gifts your kids will enjoy and you will enjoy watching your kids enjoy them on Christmas morning.

After December 25th what happens?  The gift finds a spot on the shelf to collect dust as your child starts to look at what he wants to get next Christmas.

Of course though, there are gifts that you could give your child that would help bring the family together.  Gifts that not only your child will enjoy but something the family will appreciate from month’s even years to come.  So here it is the list of 7 Christmas gifts that will encourage family togetherness.

    Great list! Board games are great. One we love is “Sequence.” Another gift we have done is the family getaway, like a waterpark overnight / weekend.

      Sequence is awesome! Fell in love with that game a while back. I like the idea of an overnight water park stay.

    These are great ideas! Always looking for ways to slow down and be together!

      In Today’s fast paced, technology addicted society, I am all about finding ways to slow down and be together as a family.

    Spot on with the board games, legos, and cook books. My wife does a lot of artwork with the kids during the week while I’m at work. But there’s no better time as a family than board games and cooking together.

      I think with Today’s fast paced society, people are forgetting what it takes to be a family sometimes. Kid’s have become conditioned to the instant gratification of being able to play video games when they want and being able to watch whatever movie they want, rather than what is on the TV and being part of the family. My favorite times with my family are when my cell phone is in the other room and we are sitting down playing a game or talking as a family.
