Last minute gift ideas for parents: Storage, stuff

Stacking StorageLooking at Maggie’s potential haul for tomorrow has got me realizing that there should be a rule written that for every gift given to a child it should include the space to store said gift.

Due to the need for soft corners and interesting shapes almost nothing you get a toddler can be stacked on top of something else. From Cozy Coupes to Fischer-Price barns, the toys can’t be easily stored and sorted, so each thing you get a child is that much less floor space the parents have to work with.

So yeah, storage. So that 12 square feet of living space you just took away by giving the gift of American plastic isn’t a negative.

Failing finding them the perfect storage solution, show them exactly how much you care down to the penny with gift cards, or cash. Ear plugs can be useful for new parents also, for when you want to hold the screaming bundle of anger, but don’t want to lose hearing.

That’s about it.
