I've been hitting the thrift stores for Christmas finds. - I find wondeful picture books for my kids for .25 cents a piece. - You can get creative, buy a used doll and make an adopt the orphan dolly kit. - Make a dress up box with fun grown up clothes.- Games and puzzles are always great finds at thrift stores to.
Another thing I still sometimes do with my kids is make them gift certificates. I have a daughter who's love language is quality time. I make her certificates for like 2 hours of undivided attention to do an activity of her choice; she loves it!
It's really fun to be creative with gifts!
Your daughter will have a wonderful Christmas, that's obvious becasue you care so much about her. She is very lucky to have you for a Mom!
