The song featured here was written when our children were very young and is on our Christmas CD titled, Coming Home For Christmas. You can order the entire CD here at our site or you can download only the song (see below).

The idea for the lyric came on December 26th when Steve was in the middle of repairing a Christmas gift we had given one of the kids just 24 hours earlier!

So…what are some of the gifts that kids can’t break? We listed a few in the song. For an expanded look at the gifts that will last a lifetime you can order a copy of the book, Gifts Your Kids Can’t Break at our web store.

 

 

 


Gifts Your Kids Can’t Break

I walk for miles, upon and down the aisles…it’s a holiday routine

To find that special plastic, I know it seems a little drastic

But how I love that Christmas morning scene

 

When the kids tear through the wrapping, and they smile and look so happy

But somehow by the end of the day

We find the kids in tears and what we thought would last for years

Has to be repaired or thrown away

 

Where are the gifts kids can’t break

That will be there tomorrow when they awake

Whatever it costs, whatever it takes, that’s what I want to give

Something that will last as long as they live

Where are the gifts, kids can’t break

 

We can use December as a reason to remember there are gifts that really stand the test of time

Like a home that is a place where it’s warm and where it’s safe

And smile don’t even cost a single dime

Teach them how to love their neighbor, and the value of their labor

And how to say “I’m sorry” when they’re wrong

How to act out on a date, and tell them why we celebrate

The One we sing about in all those Christmas songs

 

These are the gifts kids can’t break

That will be there tomorrow when they awake

Whatever it costs, whatever it takes, that’s what I want to give

Something that will last as long as they live

These are the gifts, kids can’t break

They’re guaranteed to last, as long as they live

These are the gifts, kids can’t break

 

Words and Music:  Steve and Annie Chapman

  1. I was wondering if this comes in a accomp.track. I’ve always loved this song since I got it years ago on cassette. It is even more important now since my daughter and husband have ended their 13 year marriage leaving behind a son soon to be 13 year old son, who needs to be shown all of what was mentioned in your song and more.
