  • It would help to know the sex of the children, and if they're yours or someone elses.

    For young boys- hot wheels, comic books, action figures, teen girl a journal, maybe a nice pen, my boys are into music, so drumsticks and guitar strings and picks are cheap and I often tell people to buy those for them.

    Books are great for all ages, and all kids love a gift card, even if it's only $5.

  • If you are crafty, felt dolls are really cheap and easy to make. (Felt only costs $2.99 a yard. You could make 6 or 7 dolls from 2 yards of felt.) Books are great gifts. You can buy used kids books on for cheap (and can find many with free shipping). You can also buy used DVDs on I've never had a bad experience buying used on Amazon.

  • books, silly bands, a special pen and notepad or jounral, a group gift with a gift card to mcdonalds or where ever they like to eat like dunking donouts, if gifts go somewhere apart then, color wonder, legos, a special cup or plate for dinner, socks, gloves, coloring books, for the three month old then an outfit, booties,a stuffed animal, teething rings for later, bubble bath or showel gel, for the older boys maybe a new wallet or key chain, or life savor books candy. It does not have to be much just something from the heart should please anyone and does not matter what you get them no matter how small the gift seems to you they will enjoy it coming from you.

  • Maybe hit the dollar tree and put little gift baskets together for each of them? That could still get a bit pricey though when it is all said and done...
    Oh, how about the no sew tie blankets?

  • good luckI'd hit the dollar store and family dollar. The 3 mo old wont know the difference and the dollar store has baby toys. The family dollar usually has nice clothes and perfume/cologne etc.
