Need a suggestion for child's tradition.

I bought my dd snowglobes for her first 5 birthdays as a tradition. Now I have 2 sons to buy for. I have chosen piggy banks for my 1st son. What should I buy for my second son?

  • Dog statues? Model Cars? Gnomes? Kaleidoscopes?

  • Oh I like kaleidascopes! Thanks. I forgot to mention that I want it to be sentimental, small, and inexpensive,but yet whimsical and totally child natured.

  • Cool stamps from countries all over the world, model cars, baseball (or his favorite sport) cards from each year.....

  • For my godchild I have been buying Christmas Ornaments. Some are inexpensive and others have cost a bit more. I make sure that at least one each year has the year on it. (There is a shop about an hour from here that will paint anything you want onto a ornament and the shop is 2 floors of Christmas open year round)

    When she graduates from high school, she will have a tree's worth of ornaments that are all hers. My sister noticed an angel theme so I try to buy one angel for each year, but I also buy whatever catches my eye. If I can include her interests and milestones (driver's license, first communion, etc...) I do that too.

    While not child friendly, it will mean more years in the future.
