    I will repost since I never seem to see when comments get updated in the comment area. I will try to remember to add here instead of there from now on.

    " Can you list some ideas of what you get a child then?"

    Sure:

    1. Sugar cookie dough in tub, small rolling pins, sprinkles, cookie cutters and a copy of "Christmas cookie day" by Tara Knudson - https://www.amazon.com/Christmas-Coo.../dp/0310762898

    2. Wooden bird house, acrylic paint set, art smock and a copy of The Birds of Bethlehem by Tomie dePaola - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/03...KIKX0DER&psc=1

    3. Small plastic sled and a copy of Ten on the Sled by Kim Norman - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/14...KIKX0DER&psc=1 & https://www.basspro.com/shop/en/flex...-2-person-sled

    Stuff like that. Experiences.

    Oh, and the wooden, magnetic, train sets and family tickets to our local train museum was a huge hit last year. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...PKHFF5VG&psc=1

    This site lists the museums in every state for inspiration. https://www.american-rails.com/museums.html

    I do a book for most part, I get the dollar books from scholastics. Last year they were late so I gave them too late.

    One year for Halloween, each parent told me what they were going to dress the child as for Halloween, they just randomly told me. I took note of what they were and I looked for a book about the costume kind of. One child was going to be a skunk another was a dragon and another was Paul Bunyan. So they each got a book for Halloween.

    Another time I attempted to find books with the child's name in it. I was unsuccessful, unless I had one created especially for them.

    I usually get them a gift that requires the parent to engage with them. With my clients, parental engagement, one on one, is what the child needs, not another toy, generally.

    I always buy each child a new book, a Christmas book.

    Thanks, I have a set for my kids. One of the kids wanted me to put his art in them, that is what gave me the idea to get them for the kids.

    Last year I got all (but one) the kids one of these artwork frames.

    This year I am getting the new kids the frames and the old kids' something else. I send home gifts so no one knows what I got the other kid or that they did not get the same thing.

    If the books arrive, they will all get a book too. I have nothing for the infant yet.

    I have considered getting a book and toy from Kohls care collection.

    started a topic Christmas Presents

    Christmas Presents

    I always buy presents for my kiddos and their siblings if I’ve had them for drop-in care within the year. I spend about $10-$15/child. I don’t do anything for the parents, but the DCK and I decorate cookies the week of Christmas and they go home with them.

    I am having a tough time this year trying to decide if I want to do an Oriental Trading order for personalized stuffed animals and a book for all of them or if I want to get something special to each child. I’ve even considered Play-Dough toys, but I’m afraid parents won’t let their children play with those.

    What are some of you doing for Christmas this year?
