Time savings on gifts for little ones

Time savings on gifts for little ones

Your child was invited to another birthday party? That means another trip to the store in a frantic search for a great gift. Why not designate a special cupboard or drawer as a “gift store?” Stock up ahead of time to save your sanity when those last minute invitations arrive. When your child gets an invitation, they can “shop” at your in-home gift store to pick out something perfect for the birthday child. Be sure you also stock up on gift bags, wrapping paper, cards and bows, too!

Here are some ideas for stocking your “store:”


  • Play makeup, glitter lotion, nail polish, lip gloss, flavored chapsticks, etc.
  • Mad Lib books, journals, joke books
  • Sidewalk chalk
  • Art supplies – paint sets, paper, glitter glue, etc.
  • Craft kits – cards, jewelry, picture frames, etc.
  • Children’s manicure sets
  • Hair and other accessories: Colorful ponytail holders, unique hair clips, interchangeable headbands with flowers, etc. that switch out  to match various outfits
  • Silk sleep masks
  • Jewelry. Ankle bracelets are a fun accessory that’s not always top-of-mind
  • Books, magazine subscriptions
  • Gift cards
