  • Target has a huge $1 section with all kinds of nice goodies- headbands, markers, Hello Kitty items, cute socks, animal bowls and snack totes etc.

  • You could always get stuff meant for party goody bags, who says they can't be used for christmas stockings too.

  • 15 month olds will never remember it anyway-and you have stuff for the stockings so don't stress over it.

    they are gonna be more interested in the boxes and bows and paper anyhow than anything else!

  • Target $1 section...sometimes you think you are not giving them enough, but it's really more than they need. I asked my 3-year old what she wants from santa, she said "a book about monkeys, a little stuffed money and a stuffed octopus". I inquired "that's all? you dont' waant more? You've been a good girl this year..". She replied "no. mommy. That's all I want"...That really put me to shame about all this materiality stuff.
