Gift Ideas part 2

Last week was gift ideas for little kids, this week 3-7 year olds.

One of the best presents my 4 year old got for his birthday this year was a wallet with a few dollars in it.  I got the 2 year old a wallet from Speedy when he was born as he really wanted his own one.  Both boys love earning money to go in it and it is such a great tool for teaching many lessons like responsibility, counting etc.  Did you know the old wives tale about it being bad luck to give a wallet, purse or bag without putting money inside it??

Books and dvds are great too.  Santa is bringing this (one of my absolute fave books and authors) and I cannot wait to read it to the boys.

On Sunday we took the boys to the movies for the first time and saw Planes.  It was such a fun experience for all of us.  Movie vouchers are great for all ages!!

Candy Grabber MachineOur local club has these money sucking machines and my kids love them.  I saw one similar to this at The Reject Shop last week for only $30.

  Independence has become big around here lately, the 4 year old especially loves having a shower by himself and having his very own shampoo etc and thankfully the gap in the market for boys toiletries is less now.

Linking up these few little ideas with One Mother Hen for Open Slather.


  1. Lol, my husband would totally buy the grab machine, for himself!! All fantastic ideas Ann :)

  2. They're some really great ideas.

  3. Lovely gift ideas Ann. My dad lives on his own and every year I send him a $50 movie card. On his pension concession he gets a half dozen trips to the movies and absolutely loves it. They make a lovely gift for all ages. I am missing spoiling little ones. Cheers, Tanya

  4. Like the gift ideas. That lollie machine would even interest my teenager.
