Education Makes a Fun & Great Gift!

I’m finding it hard to believe, but it’s that time of year again – gift giving with our family and loved ones.  I know I always struggle with determining meaningful gift ideas.   What I have realized over the years is that my most treasured gifts were always experiences.  One year I was gifted a cooking class to take with my husband, sister, and brother-in-law. That day remains one of our favorite memories and we happily relive the experience often.  If you like the idea of giving an experience, consider gifting a INYW? subscription.  Becoming a member would give you access to hundreds of learning experiences that can be shared throughout the year with a young child.  If you feel that you need some more information before purchasing a subscription, try out our sample month.  The sample month includes many activities that can inspire learning gifts.  For example, each month has a targeted book to read and song to sing, with a link directly to Amazon to order books and songs.  There are ways to give free experiences as gifts too.  Homemade gift certificates are one way to do this.  You could make a gift certificate for a trip to the library to get a library card and check out music and books; INYW? offers many suggestions to get you started.  You could also make a gift certificate for a cooking date and make one of the foods listed on INYW? Another idea is to make an entire INYW? gift basket.  Have your little one open a basket that contains new crayons, construction paper, a calendar, or some ingredients for a cooking activity.  This can help spark the excitement for the INYW? program.  Gift giving can be incredibly rewarding when the end result is a meaningful experience shared with a loved one.  Visit us at www.ifnotyouwho.org
