Oh my goodnes this is the cutest little gift bag ever!! I saw it on Oriental Trading and I could not resist picking up a set of 12 for a VERY reasonable price. My son got Christmas oranments for his two favorite teachers and we will be putting them in these cute little 3D Elf Shoe Gift Bags.
We also picked up some stickers and a sticker scene to take to the classroom as well. My son is in elementary school and stickers on papers and homework that has been turned in are a big deal. What better kind of sticker to use during the holiday than those that have a seasonal theme? You'll find plenty to choose from at Oriental Trading, that's for sure.
Like to have a BIG gift wrapped under the tree? How about this life-sized cardboard playhouse? Priced at under $25, this present is going to be a big deal. Kids can color in their easy-to-assemble Santa's Work Shop with paint, markers, crayons you name it! I think this is a fun project for everyone in the family to work on too. I mean, who doesn't love to color... and then the kids can crawl inside of it and play!! Now that's a fun gift!
We will probably use a variety of items to color in our Santa Workshop, but since I have an artsy teen in the house who likes to experiment with acrylic, I picked up a variety of those kinds of markers for her to use on it.
If you're looking for stocking stuffers, Oriental Trading has SO MANY options. I picked out these mini sketch pads for the Christmas Stockings here...
We used to call these fly eyes when I was a kid. You hold them up to your eye and you see a whole lot of whatever it is you are looking at, instead of one thing. They're still fun to the kids, so I picked up a bag of these to pass out in the Sunday School classes.
Chinese Yo Yo's are always fun, no matter your age, so I selected a dozen of those as well: Peppermint Pattern.
I ordered a dozen Santa Belt ornaments for our own Christmas tree, but they were the perfect size for gift giving, so I saved 6 and will be gifting 6. These are heavy duty ornaments and I liked them online, I fell in love in person.
Finally, I picked up a dozen pocket calendars to slip in the adult Christmas stocking and gift at work. These are practical and eveyrone's going to need one coming up here shortly. I chose America the Beautiful for my theme and received 3 each of four different scenes. They are less than $7 for a dozen! Crazy good price, right? Everything is priced to sell, and you're going to love what you get.
If you head over now, there's a sale going on. It's a good one too,
up to 75% off of tons of Christmas favorites.
