Do your kids or the kids on your Christmas list get too many toys under the Christmas tree? If you're tired of giving a toy or you want a gift that keeps on giving, check out these cool El Paso-centric Christmas gift ideas that don't have anything to do with toys. They're a great way to give a gift that your kids and your whole family can enjoy.

1. Zoo membership - The El Paso Zoo is a really fun thing to do and even though you might not go there too much during the holidays or the winter months, during the summer they have a ton of cool things to do other than looking at the animals. Let your beasties wear themselves out on the Foster Playhouse, ride the African Star Train, or the carousel. They can even splash around in the splash pad, or feed the giraffes. Get a family membership and have a full year of fun at the El Paso Zoo.
