Traditionally, we think of Christmas gifts as brightly wrapped boxes adorned with tidy little bows that are stacked neatly under the tree. While it is true that unwrapping a new toy on Christmas can be pretty thrilling, it pales in comparison to the exhilaration felt when a child is presented with an awe-inspiring experience. Whether your child loves to learn, experience new things or likes to play to the max, we have put together a list of gift experiences to give your kids that they will love even more than toys.
