  • Hi Mommy - it's a hard choice to make I know but It' the right one to pay the house. For Baby any toys put aside that haven't been played with for a good while? Maybe even packed away from older kids when they were little? If so take them wash 'em off and wrap 'em up. Any dvd's from a while ago that haven't been watched for a while? Dig those up and wrap up, act as if it's something too never seen or used before.

    Have around u or near u a dollar or two literally a thrift shop store run by a church or a hospital, or run by a nurse's association, a community organization their toys are very very very super inexpensive and well worth checking out.

    Also babies that age don't know what's in style what's not - do you sew? Take older kidsclothes and make new clothes for baby or a cuddle blanket.

    You can also get a box and put into it tons of separate crumpled bright wrapping. Call them Christmas Balls and play catch with them.

  • JMO, The 15 month old does not know what christmas is any was. You should not worry about the present.

  • I agree! Just give the baby the larger empty boxes and paper shopping bags (NOT plastic!)--they'll have MUCH more fun crawling in and out of them!

  • Probably will have more fun in the paper and boxes after opening, If concerned, go to a dollar store, and purchase something.
