I am wanting to get a large gift bag with 25 small gifts in each-one for each day of December. The envelope or small package will have the date on the outside of each so they know what day to open them. I'd like each to have different items-not the same. And they need to be inexpensive.
I need 50 small Christmas ideas for my 2 secret sisters at church. I had the daughter-then her mom moved in with her after it was too late to draw a name for her-so I adopted her also.
How about some Christmas Chocolates that you make yourself?
Also you could theme a week, like bath beads for one day, a pretty flannel for the next, bubble bath the next etc. So at the end of it all they have a really nice bath collection.
Another inexpensive idea is a notebook filled with favorite recipes. Good luck I hope this helps.
A small box of all occasion cards and envelopes. (12 count at the dollar store for $2.00 per box)
box of individual hot cocoa mix
Wish I could think of more, that's all I got:) Happy Holidays!
How about putting in a small jar and tell them it is their prayer jar for their most important thoughts and dreams. My girls loved that idea. You could also print up words of encouragement, or make your own stickers on the computer with their return addresses for mailings.
How about a whisk .79 @ Walmart, with some hershey kisses in it that says "I whisk you a Merry Kissmas". That is fun to give to all of your friends and quite inexpensive.
'stickie pads', magnetic stickers for frig, pot holders and dishrags. Stretch that over 4 days.
Another fun idea is 'will the Christ Child come'. Sporadically give a 'piece of an economical nativity. Make sure you are done with every piece BUT the Christ Child. Then nothing. Somehow give her a wrapped present that says do not open till Christmas and then you can identity yourself as to who you are and it builds anticipation in the receiver. We do it as a family in a 'pixie' ring the doorbell kinda fashion. Great fun.
to include in the mix above, how about things you could do together, as 'coupons' such as "read a story", take a walk, teach to knit or sew on a button, hem pants, ..and maybe do it so that the mother would benefit or could gain confidence via the activities. perhaps something[s] she could do in return?
If it were up to me, I would probably be hitting the dollar tree! Sometimes they have multipacks of things. Some ideas for you:
1. hand lotion
2. elastic hair bands
3. hair scrunchies
4. Christmas ornament
5. potpourri sachet
6. novelty socks
7. perfume spray
8. homemade cookies
9. herbal tea
How about things for pampering - small bottles of nail polish, nail polish remover, nail files, lotions for hands and feet, individual facial masks, chapstick or lip gloss, notecards you can make yourself (if you are crafty), think stocking stuffers. Good luck! :)
We do this but it is the 12 days of Christmas
Candies of any sort (M&Ms, marshmallow pops, etc.) socks, mittens, Night before Christmas book-December 24th, book mark, lip gloss, playing cards shaped like Christmas (tree, ornament, showman) Christmas wash cloth, Santa hat, place mats, cookie tin-filled of course!, candy cane, Reindeer noses (choc covered raisins with a few red hots thrown in) Nail polish, Personalized ornaments, Jingle bells or any other home decorations., cocoa and mug, your favorite cookie recipe and ingerdients (maybe stretched out over a couple of days OR cookies in a Jar mix...Can you say Dollar STORE!
