Kohl's Cares! Pick up a $5 Item You Will Love and Help Others at the Same Time!


I've mentioned it before and I'll likely mention it again, Kohl's Cares...and appropriately enough, that's the name of their $5 line, where you purchase items for a very reasonable price (most for just $5) and 100% of the net profit goes towards children's health and education initiatives nationwide. Nearly $300 million has een raised since the year 2000, which is wonderful and amazing! How does it work?




Well, it actually works very easily. You stop into your local Kohl's store (which you're probably doing anyway since it's the holiday season) and you find the tall display racks they have of the Kohl's Cares items. You'll always find high quality items for just $5. Right now if you go you'll find items for adults and children. This cookbook pictured above is a prime example. It can be used to make items for or with the kids. Of course it's good for adults too...because most everyone loves baked goodies, and this book is chock full of awesome recipes.


White Elephant gifts anyone? 'tis the season, and I've gone to one White Elephant Party already and have two more to attend this week. The adult coloring books are all the rage right now, so I know that is going to be a huge 'swipe me' hit in the next party I attend. The movie trivia game is awesome for the holiday season because it takes you back through the years and offers insight into movies you may have not yet seen, but will once you are introduced to them through the game. We kept this one and have been playing when guests come to visit, but it'd be a great White Elephant Party gift idea too!


The holiday CD they have is PERFECT because it's full of the classic versions. I like almost all Christmas music, but sometimes I just crave them the way I heard them when I was growing up. This CD has been playing non-stop in our car since it showed up on our doorstep. It's a perfect stocking stuffer and a great item to own for your own home too.


Why do I like it so much? Ttraditional singing by the likes of Gene Autry, Brenda Lee, Perry Como, Frank Sinatram and more. Yeah, that's a good line-up. :)


Paddington Bear is a favorite of my son. Hard to resist the stuffed animal and the book that are priced at just $5 a piece!! I know he is going to love them both when he opens them for Christmas. He and I both have a softspot for this little guy, every since we saw the movie.


The pictures in the book are colorful and lively, and even Paddington himself seems to be enjoying it, don't you think? I love the tag on his jacket. Makes me want to go hug him right now. 


Let's talk about that hoodie!! Precious, right? This is an awesome book and stuffed animal duo. One any child will surely delight in owning.


And speaking of awesome stuffed animal and book duos, you can get an equally adorable The Night Before Christmas and stuffed reindeer set right now at Kohl's too. We hand delivered this one unwrapped to my granddaughter over the weekend. This is a smaller book, for small hands, and it's perfect for reading during the holidays!


You an see the pictures are bright and very colorful. The story is the classic version we all know and love. This present was a big hit with my baby grand, and the fact that she could have a gift now, instead of waiting, went over pretty well too. :)

Stop into a Kohl's store before Christmas gets here and take any one of these (and more!) home to your loved ones, friends, co-workers, teachers, neighbors, delivery services people and more. This is a great way to give, and give back at the same time, with items that delight (that you can also easily afford!). Big kudos to Kohl's for always being, and continuing to be so amazing!

  6. Is it possible to get a hold of the old items sold for this program. They had several items a few years ago that I would love to get for $5. Could you possibly check into it and get back to me?

    1. The sponsor said once they run the cycle, they donate them to charity (another great Kohl's thing!). So no. BUT you could check out 2nd-hand sales sites. I just found an old, old Christmas ornament like one my grandmother had (on eBay). I was delighted to find it, and it cost $9 total. Good luck! :)
