Chrismakkah is right around the corner, are you prepared?

Trying to figure out what to get the kids on your holiday list besides gift cards and underwear? Here are some ideas:

  •  Lego Club Subscription- specify age for Jr. version
  •  A Refrigerator Box- can be turned into absolutely anything
  •  Check Craigs Lists for free toys and clothing that may be gently used
  •  Hold a toy/clothing swap for New To You excitement
  •  Make a superhero cape from an old pillow case or towel, if you are good at sewing

Under $10
  • Find some interesting things for all ages at ThinkGeek like zombie jerkey, giant plush microbes, sun art paper  and LED construction bricks
  • Visit 5 below, Christmas Tree Shop, and Job Lot.  You can get a ton of stocking stuffers and great gifts for under $5 each
  • Thinkfun has a variety of games and puzzles under $10 for the cognitive kiddo
  •  Playdoh- enough said

Under $20
  • KiwiCrate gift/project box.- a single box for Crafty Christmas or Handmade Hannukah is 19.95 (or you can set up a 3 or six month subscription for $60 and up)
  • Movie Tickets: go to AAA for a bonus pack discount
  • Spot It by Blue Orange is a fast paced  game that can travel just about anywhere           
  • Animal Monster hand tattoos can add a laugh to any conversation, as kids and adults make their hands talk like a giraffe

Under $50
  • Legos- can’t go wrong
  • At UncommonGoods you can find some incredibly unique items including the Gummy Bear Lights and a fire hose belt

And you must be a grandparent:
  • Full Year Monthly Subscription to Kiwi Crate might set you back over $200, but each month an overflow of creative juices will occur within the home to which you send it
  •  Family Museum/Zoo Subrsciptions- I love the idea of the gift that keeps going all year round. Not only are you supporting a local business but you are encouraging growth and development
  • Savings Bonds- for those under two, or that have everything under the sun
