Awesome Non-Toy and Experience Gifts for New Orleans Kids

experence gifts for new orleans kids

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!
