Children’s Gift Exchange Ideas + Christmas Blessings Giveaway!

Thank You For Sharing!!

A children’s gift exchange is a fun way for kids to get excited about the holidays and feel involved. What is nice about children’s gift exchanges is that there is a limit to amount each child can spend. That means that the fun doesn’t have to cost much. The problem, sometimes, that leaves parents wondering what things kids can buy and stay under the limit.

Children Gift Ideas for Exchanges Under $5

Look at the dollar store. Kids can create a gift basket type present using items from the dollar store for their gift exchange. Create a coloring themed basket using a few different gifts like coloring books, crayons, and markers. Buy craft supplies, like glue, puff balls and glitter.

Play dough: Just about all kids love play dough. There are usually fun packages of play dough that are under the $5 limit. Depending on how much the set costs, add in some cookie cutters to add a fun twist.

Microphones: Kids love karaoke. There are many times of microphones from plain one or ones that play music or make sound effects.

Books: Book are always a good gift idea. Amazon, Walmart, Target and the Dollar Store all sell books that are under $5 that kids will love to read.

Card games: Card games like Uno, Skipbo or Monopoly Deal are just a few games that are under $5 and make fun games for kids. Even just a regular deck of cards can be a gift kids go nuts over.

Children Gift Ideas for Exchanges Under $10

Stuffed Animals: While stuffed animals make moms cringe, kids love them. And they are always a hit for any gift exchange.

Board Games: Kids love to play board games. Amazon has a large selection of board games that are under $10.

Arts & Crafts: Kids love to create things. In the $10 range there are many craft kits that kids will love. If you want to make it a bit more personal, create a gift basket of items from the craft store.

Magic Sets: Kids love magic. They are fascinated with how the slight of hand can create such fun illusions. There are so many magic kits that come in all price ranges. There are also kits that cover all different style of magic tricks.

Kids will love being a part of gift exchanges, and making sure to stay in the set budget will help parents love them too. If you are trying to make sure that the kids are involved, give the kids a few choices of the items that are in the price range and let them pick which gift they want to give to their classmates.

Christmas Blessings Giveaway

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas – a time for gratitude, togetherness, and celebration. The Christmas Blessings Giveaway is in its 8th year, and we are excited to once again bless not one family, but two, with some cash for the holiday season! I’m teaming up with an amazing group of bloggers with the hope of making this Christmas the best yet for TWO families by giving away $500 in Paypal cash to each family. What would you do with that money?!

While we wish we could bless many more families, we were able to come up with a big prize for TWO families – $500 each (delivered via Paypal) – that we pray will make a big difference in their lives this Christmas season – whether it’s to fulfill their kids’ Christmas wishes, pay off some bills, or to help build some savings, our prayer is that it helps to lessen any financial burden and/or fills a specific need.

There are lots of entry options in the Rafflecopter form below – the more you enter, the better your chance of winning!  I know it can seem tedious and time consuming to go through all the entries, but isn’t a chance at $500 worth it? I think it is!  Plus, all of these amazing bloggers donated their own money toward the cash prizes, so this giveaway wouldn’t be possible without them.  I hope you’ll take the time to check out each one. Who knows, maybe you will find some new blogs to follow.

The giveaway will run from Monday, November 15th through Wednesday, November 24th (ends at 11:59pm EST). Winner will be notified by email shortly after the giveaway ends and will have 48 hours to respond to claim the prize or another winner will be drawn. You must have a Paypal account to win.  By entering this giveaway, you agree to be added to the email lists of the participating bloggers.  Please be sure to read the Rafflecopter terms and conditions upon entering.
