Let's start a BIG GIFT thread

I need ideas for LARGE gifts just to make it look like a lot under the tree. Not expensive, just packaged largely! Chat Icon

I am sure I am not the only Mom looking to plump up the piles under the tree this year.

Any suggestions?

Just save/ask for large boxes (computer boxes, printer boxes, etc.) Pack something small in the huge boxes. You can nest boxes if you really want to mess with DC, too.... Chat Icon

Disney store has Barbie sized Princess dolls and they are always on sale!

Likewise I got a pack of Barbie and her Sisters at Target last week for $35.

Art kits, from Michaels (Coupons!) and Target are usually bug boxed, but inexpensive.

Re: Let's start a BIG GIFT thread

the boys are getting an easel this year which will take up room for sure. I also wrap things like underpants & socks in boxes to fill it up.

Crafts sets as well. I noticed Target had some Highlight Clipboard witg a bunch of stickers and puzzles on clearance. It was in a plastic case, medium size. And there was also Melissa and Doug coloring sets that were on clearance and it was a big box. They were like $4-$6.

The Imaginext Big City Rescue set (or something like that). Its on sale at TRU right now for 39.99. HOURS of fun, and HUGE, but relatively inexpensive.

Re: Let's start a BIG GIFT thread

OMG, I just laughed so much when I read this. My husband keeps telling me we need to find some big things for my DD. We have a bunch of stuff for my DS, that are pretty big and nothing big for DD. Of course DD's gifts, she 6, are just more expensive. I told DH this is the year she learns big things come in small packages, but he insists we get a couple big boxes.

DS had had to learn that one already! Last year he got a 3DS and while its not crazy expensive. My rule is 1 bigger ticket item (cost wise) and thats it!

This year DH and I are not agreeing on the larger item for DS (who turns 6 days before christmas!)

My kids are getting nothing big this year for Hanukkah but I did buy my daughter an American girl doll that I will give her for her birthday in January.
