Holiday Gift Ideas for the Family
Have a friend who loves beer? Get them a kit so they can make their own and try their hand at brewing…my husband’s coworker has come up with some pretty amazing flavor combinations and it all started with one simple beer kit he got for Christmas. Now he makes special beer just to give for gifts. Tim suggested we head to Northern Brewers for a 1 gallon starter kit to make beer at home.
A great item to go along with that is How to Brew
My most favorite discovery this year for toys- although it’s hard to call this one a toy- the Kano Computer Kit. Kids ages 6+ can learn to code and build their own computer. Still waffling on giving this to myself. I’d love to learn to code! But really- SUCH a cool gift. They get a fun electronic to play with but they have to build it first, and learn a whole lot along the way. It’s also $20 off thru the end of December…Kids can create the computer and there are apps for it, they can draw, talk to it- there’s even a kid-sized keyboard.
The Kano is amazing. Such a great idea for today’s kids. Most of them want electronics- why not have them learn HOW those come together and how they work? They’ve also come out with a screen kit you can grab to go with the Kano (about $80 off right now through the end of December)! Listen, if someone got ME a Kano Kit, I’d be super excited. I might be tempted to see if I could make the keyboard pink, and sparkly, but I’d be really excited. The possibilities and learning potential- for all of us!
