I’m sharing ideas for experience-based gifts, and some things to consider when deciding to give them.

Decluttering at the Speed of Life
One other gift I gave out of desperation last year was a book of coupons for each of my kids. They loved them and every single one has asked me if I’m going to do it again this year. We have 7 kids, so one-on-one time with each kid is a challenge, and each kid’s had things custom picked for them – one loves to go to thrift stores/estate sales, so he got a coupon for a trip to a thrift store with me. One got a coupon for a cookie baking session with just mama and him. One hates to share treats, so he got a coupon for picking an item out at the grocery store that would be his and his alone. They all got a few common coupons (lunch out with just mama, 1 get-out-of-helping during Saturday morning cleaning, dibs on picking the movie for family movie night (within reason, of course), etc). I did it because we were tight on money last year and it allowed me to defer paying for some of the activities til a later payday, but I was a amazed at how much they all loved it.
