Instead of giving a whole bunch of smaller gifts to your kids this holiday season, consider tackling one slightly larger project, like for example this lovely atelier, and give your child the gift of writing or art or good old fashioned pretending.
This isn't an exhaustive list, but one to get you inspired. Long after they're bored with a flashy toy, they'll be able to create at their art table, write in their workshop, or read in their own little library.
