All I Want to Do Is Buy Things on the Internet

One thing I have discovered this year is that you can fill many joyful hours browsing bean bag chairs on the internet. Though other activities I love are out of reach for now, no one can take online shopping away from me!

December is a giftstravaganza in my interfaith home — we have Hanukkah, Christmas and my older daughter’s birthday. Last year I wrote about how to keep your kids from becoming spoiled gift monsters, and while those lessons still hold true, in 2020 I’m feeling more indulgent. I also know we’re about to have months of indoor time on our hands here in New York, so I’m willing to buy anything that delights my children and will keep them occupied for a prolonged period of time.

If you’re in search of such treasures too, don’t fret — we have a plethora of gift guides for your browsing pleasure, with activities for kids and treats for yourself included. I can vouch for the Kid Made Modern arts and crafts library, which my children got last Christmas; it provided them with hours of pipe-cleaner-based enjoyment. If you’d like to give to those in need during this difficult year, Nick Kristof has a lovely list of charities that are worth your investment.

Our pals at Wirecutter, the New York Times company that reviews and recommends products, are updating this list of Black Friday deals on gifts for kids all weekend long, so be sure to check it out. I’m still waiting to see if they include my 4-year-old’s biggest and most absurd ask: A robot unicorn that also dances.

Thanks for reading!

My folks have been video chatting with my 3-year-old for a while now, but recently they got toys. Now my son and his grandparents “play” with their trucks for a couple of hours every other morning while I wash the dishes and take a shower!— Maggie Berg, Corvallis, Oregon
