I put together an Advent bag for Diva. 24 items almost all under $2 (most about $1 or less). I wrapped each item in tissue paper (red, gold, white) and placed them in a Christmas bag. Starting Dec 1st, she gets to open one package per day. They are not in any order so she gets to choose each day which package looks the most interesting. Items are box of kleenex, box of hot cocoa, individual hot cocoa, finger nail clippers, make up brushes, note pads, finger nail colors, ect. Very fun to put together. Now I decided I should get one together for difficult child. Do you know how hard it is to find dollar items for a 14 year old boy? I don't want to over do it with candy. I have found some personal hygeine items (shampoos, ect), deck of cards, a dollar store nutcracker (he collects them) a box of cocoa, and gloves, and a hat (yes, both under $2). I think I have about 15 items. I will wrap and count and go out tomorrow to find more things but what are small every day practicle dollar priced things for boys this age? 20 year old girls living on their own are definitely easier to shop for then 14 year old boys. I am blessed that both kids will enjoy the bag for the fun of the unknown and will not complain if it does not live up to their expectations.
