I’m conflicted! While I love the idea of having a lot of presents under the Christmas tree, I don’t love the idea of bringing more stuff into my tiny two bedroom apartment. I was talking with my friend Rebecca Martin about this and she helped me think of some wonderful ideas to avoid the clutter . . .
Plan an Adventure 1 of 5
Wrap a pair of sunglasses in a box and in your best game show host voice say, "You've won a trip to MEXICO!" Or, "Pack Your Bags! We're going to spend the week . . ."
Buy Adorable Junior Wayfarer glasses from Ray-Ban
Tickets to the Circus 2 of 5
Buy a clown nose, wrap it in a box and tell your kids they are going to have a goofy night at the circus!
Buy circus noses at Amazon
Lessons for the Year 3 of 5
Have your child open a uniform or shoes with a certificate for lessons.
I love these ballet slippers from Payless
Museum Membership 4 of 5
Buy a small toy from the museum's gift shop with the name of the musuem on it. Tell you kids they can go as many times as they want this year!
Take notes with this school kit from the American Museum of Natural History
See the Stars 5 of 5
Buy your child a new bow or tie (or bow tie!) for an upcoming broadway performance.
This amazing tie is only $3.95 at H&M
