Non-toy gift ideas for children

We are not going to give any toys to the kids for Christmas this year. We are going to ask all family not to buy them toys as well and send a list of non-toy alternative suggestions. Please help me add to my list of non-toy gift ideas for children.

Blankets
Pillows
Books
Art supplies
Coloring books/notebooks/paper
Dishes
Sheets
Clothes
Winter gloves/hat

(All of those things like blankets, sheets, dishes, can be gotten in cartoon character prints to make them fun or special)
