Christmas Toys On A Budget
What do you do if you have a lot of people to buy for, especially ankle-biters and your
budget is smaller than you would like it to be this holiday season? Other than going into
debt, there is something more sensible to do and that is to make simple purchases that are
sure to please. Here are some great suggestions.
Look for some classic pleasers like: board games: favorites include Monopoly, Hi Ho
Cherry-Oh, Life, Trivial Pursuit; card games like Old Maid, UNO or games like Chess
Puzzles are great and are made from many different materials: wood, cardboard, or
plastic. They can also be flat, round, square or 3 dimensional.
Train sets can also be a real family pleaser and can come in all sizes and materials. You
will find a set to fit any budget.
Wooden toys are great because they are kid powered by muscle and imagination.
Don't forget the imagination when it comes to any age child. Dressup, kitchen and
playhouses, puppets, and books.
If you have older kids crafts are always a big hit. There are some wonderful craft clubs
where your gift will be appreciated all year. You can also make up your own kits by
looking through craft magazines or books, copying down the instructions, making a list
of the materials needed and then go shopping for what you need. Make up 12 crafts and
then put each one in its own separate box. Wrap each box and put the name of a month on
each box. Put all the boxes in one huge wrapped box and Tada! A perfect Christmas gift
that will last all year.
