Cheap presents for a 2 yr old girl??

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
My sister is having a really rough year financially. She lost her job and she is 8 month preg. Her dh works for $10/hr so he barley brings home enough to pay the bills. She has a 2 yr old dd that won't be getting any Christmas and I just can't let my niece go without anything for Christmas but I don't have a lot to get her anything. Does anyone have any ideas that a something small/cheap that a 2 yr old girl would like? I only have a boy so I have no clue what to get a girl especially her age. I need some help please?

Go to the dollar store or dollar tree. There's cooling books, little toys, dolls, stuffed animals. She's 2, I think she would be happy with Anthhing as long as "Santa comes."

Target has a 3$ section for the Holday season (right up front with the 1$ stuff). They actually have really cute toys and craft stuff for younger kids.

Go to Walgreens. They have a HUGE toy section around the holidays and they have toys that are $6.99 each and buy 2 get 1 free, so for $13.98 you get 3 toys. Its not all crap, they have Disney Princess backpacks with art supplies in them, Barbies, art sets, tea sets, etc., in the buy 2 get 1 toy section. You could totally get her 6 awesome (enough) presents for under $30!
