So, it is that time of year again. Time to start thinking of what to get the kids for Christmas. I have been thinking of this a lot lately and I have finally come to the decision they are NOT getting any “toys” this year. We have a billion of them, and they barely play with what they have. So, I have picked 1 category for each child and am gonna get them 2 or 3 things from that category and then some things that will be stocking stuffers.
Some of you might be wondering what categories I am choosing and why I chose them. Well, I thought about what they like to do, what they like to play with, and it seemed pretty simple. For Brianna, she loves stuffed animals, but only has like 2 maybe 3 that are hers. I plan to get her a couple teddy bears and maybe a couple of accessories to go with them. Kira is getting into dress up. She has some now (thank goodness for Halloween) and she loves to get dressed up in them. So we are getting her some more dress up stuff and maybe a trunk to put it all in.
I am also getting the girls a few books each. Some of those will be wrapped up and used as part of an advent calendar which is becoming a new tradition starting this year. I’m gonna wrap some Christmas books along with some non Christmas books and each of the girls will get to choose 1 book to read before bed. Some will be new, some will be old, but it’s just fun to unwrap presents.
In the girls stockings they will find crayons and paints and glue sticks and all kinds of fun art and craft supplies along with a voucher to a local pizza place which has inflatables to jump in.
Altogether, for the girls, I plan to spend about 100-120 on everything. I know this may seem like a daunting task, but after thinking this through I am sure I can pull this off. Have you thought about the holidays yet???
