I don’t know if it is that I have entered the nesting phase of pregnancy or just have a strong desire for less toys and less stuff, but this year especially, I am all about buying Christmas gifts that are experiences, stimulate creativity and just won’t be in at the bottom of the toy chest in six months.
Without question, my favorite non-toy gift for Christmas this year is craft crates from Kiwi Crate, and this week only you can get them for 60% off with the code HOLIDAY60. Be sure to select the “get it” option for the code to work. (Sale ends December 2, 2014.)
That is just $7.95 for a one-month subscription, which is a steal!
What is especially awesome is that Kiwi Crate (which we have subscribed to for nearly 3 years) is one of FOUR different crates now available. So literally, if you have a child to buy for from ages 3-16, there’s a crate for you.
Koala Crate: A craft crate for the littlest ones, Koala Crate is geared for children ages 3-4. I would definitely say it could go down to 2.5. We just got the first crate for Adeline and she loved, loved, loved getting her own crate made just for her (see picture above).
Kiwi Crate This is the original craft crate, geared toward ages 4-8. We started getting this crate just before Elias’s 4th birthday, and he has never stopped loving it. I’m not exaggerating when I say it is one of our family’s favorite things every. single. month. We really, really loved Kiwi Crate. My nephew turned 6 today, and I ordered him a crate for his birthday!
Doodle Crate: Another new crate, this time for girls in the 9-16 range. These crafts are geared toward the older girl that they can enjoy and do on their own. My friend Betsy subscribed for her daughter, and she loved her first crate. (Click here to watch a video of her talking about her crate and demonstrating the crafts. Pictured above are the cute pouches she made. I especially love the pom poms!). I am planning to order my twin nieces (age 10) each a crate for Christmas because you can’t beat the $7.95 price!
Tinker Crate The last of the new crates, this is a crate for kids ages 9-14, and frankly, they look amazing. Each month, the crates are packed with fun, hands-on experiments for the science, engineering and technology loving kid. Elias already asked when he would be old enough to get a Tinker Crate – ha!
I am very, very picky about subscription services, especially for kids, and I am frugal with our spending. With having a blog called The Mom Creative, you can imagine I receive a lot of pitches and samples. And at the end of the day, I compare them all to the Kiwi Crate family – and don’t feature most of them. These kits are incredibly high quality, well-planned, creative, and just all around fantastic. They are worth the subscription price every single month.
Don’t you love Adeline’s proud face over her happy banner that she made from her Koala Crate?
So buy one or two for your family and/or for your loved ones this Christmas. We won’t see a better deal this season than 60% off! (Don’t forget to enter your coupon code HOLIDAY60 for the discount.)
