Gift Idea: Consider clothes.
Dress up clothes (try making them yourself or buying them at a thrift store), athletic gear with a favorite athlete or team on it, or some famous brand name item.
Here’s a clever way to give a brand name item. Wrap up two handmade decks of cards. One deck has brand names on it. The other deck has items available under those brands. Have the child select one card from each deck and that is his gift – an IOU for that brand name item. For example, a child might pick “Levi” and “shirt” or “Nike” and “sweats.”
Just make sure all the items are made by all the brands.
