Do your kids have way too much stuff? I know mind do. The last thing I want is MORE TOYS that they play with for five minutes and then never touch again.
Personally, I'm leaning more towards experience-type gifts vs more stuff.
Here is a great list of non-toy and experience gift ideas for the New Orleans kid that has EVERYTHING!

About Our Sponsore the Academy of the Sacred Heart
The Academy of the Sacred Heart is New Orleans' only Catholic, independent school for girls from age 1 through grade 12.
Founded in 1867 and affectionately known as the Rosary, the school has a long history rooted in the spiritual charism of the Society of the Sacred Heart, whose mission is “to discover and make known the love of God through the heart of Jesus.” This purpose is carried out across the global Sacred Heart network, in more than 150 schools in 41 countries. In the pursuit of their shared mission, all Sacred Heart schools are united by the Goals and Criteria of a Sacred Heart education and a rich legacy of educating girls to change the world. Faith. Academics. Service. Community. Growth.
The 5 Goals of Sacred Heart have been the cornerstone of our educational foundation from the day we first opened our doors in 1867.
Come learn how our girls are prepared to change the world. To learn more about Sacred Heart, visit our website, attend an Admission Event, or schedule an In-Person or Virtual Tour. Ashley Zito, Director of Admission 504.269.1213 email@example.com ashrosary.org
