Growing up I always hated the question, “what do you want for Christmas?”. I felt there was an expectation that I provide some list of items that seemed like “acceptable” gifts. Really, what I wanted was the opportunity to do something big – something worthwhile – that would make a difference. But, when I mentioned this, I always received the strangest of looks.
In this post, I hope to help some other child or teen out there that feels the way I did. I also want to help all the moms and dads of those teens by providing a list of gift ideas that your child will appreciate.
Then, make sure to get access to the online Insider’s Vault so you can download the Event Checklist to Help Youth Lead Volunteer Projects. Give your child the opportunity to do the BIG thing they want to do to make a difference and change the world.

Hi! I’m Kim.
I’m a wife, mom, and educator.
I’ve worked in higher education for over 18 years and love planning events that engage students in fun, hands on experiences. My strength is in the logistics and I plan for fun. I am now using my strengths to help others take the stress out of event planning to have quality programs for youth of all ages.
