CdLS Sunday Blog Challenge - Gift Giving Ideas for the Holiday Season

Gift giving ideas for the Holiday Season Blog Challenge

Gift giving season is here! Kids with CdLS can be challenging to buy gifts for. What gifts has your child received in the past that he or she has enjoyed, and what do you think you're child will want/need this season?

I would have to say one of Joey's favorite things he has received in the past is his CD player. It is just a small blue one that I got for about $15 at WalMart. We play CD's on it for him at night when he goes to bed. During the day, we have to unplug it and put it somewhere because he will pull it down off his his dresser and try to play with it. Let's just say it has been through a lot and has held up pretty well. He also likes his keyboards ~ he has 3 or 4 of them in different sizes and colors that he really enjoys. Lego's are also a big hit with him ~ or any type of building blocks. He loves wooden blocks too ~ he can stack 4 to 6 blocks himself and then laughs and claps his hands when he knocks them over. He has also received some books in the past ~ the kind that have the sound boards on the side that make noise when you press the picture. He likes these too.

This year for Christmas I am going to try to get him a Fisher Price Kid Tough DVD Player that I saw on a fellow CdLS family's blog. I think he would like this and it sounds like it could withstand a lot of action. I am also planning on getting him a new toy box for his room ~ hopefully some kind of Little Tikes one or something along those lines. He also needs a new hand held massager. His bit the dust a few weeks ago. Joey is not too picky ~ if it plays music, comes in a box, or is something he can climb on, he is a happy camper!

This would Joey's idea of the perfect Christmas gift! :o)


  1. Would you believe I'm almost done with my shopping already? And did at least 90% of it online!

    Justine :o )

  2. great ideas!! i will have to keep those in mind for when mason get's older!!

  3. Gianna loves things that can make noise. I have to keep anything that is breakable away from her because she loves to destroy things. This has been a behavior of hers since she was about 12 months. I hope Joey has a great Christmas!! :)
