Gift ideas for all ages below! Each from my personal Christmas list. Because of the broken leg, I have been doing all my shopping online so I’ve provided you handy links to these items on Amazon.
For preschoolers: Isn’t this darling? And under $7! It plays classical music for little ones. Perfect for the almost 2-year-old I’m buying for. http://amzn.to/ty0fwp
For 8 and up: A must for any lover of books to give as a gift. Great reviews on Amazon, and another inexpensive purchase–under $7. (p.s. writers might find this game useful as well!) http://amzn.to/ugRjHu
For older kids/teens/lovers of comics: This is actually a flash drive for the computer (the USB thingie pops out the side) and you can also choose Iron Man and Wolverine. I bought them for the boy teens/young men in my family. It’s under $12. http://amzn.to/ssQDit
For the females of make-up wearing age in your life: Coastal Scents has different palettes…eyeshadows, blushes, lipsticks. Fun because of all the different shades. You spend $15-30 and get a lot of choices! I bought a couple of kits for myself during broken leg boredom. http://amzn.to/vgtUCM
This Kill A Watt gadget measures energy useage of your appliances, computers, etc. Under $20. http://amzn.to/suUCNi
We had a big power outage this fall in the West. For those of you who face more serious weather conditions than we do, maybe you already have one of these. Via handcrank, it’s a radio, flashlight, and cellphone charger. Under $30. http://amzn.to/tzCaez
For your in-laws or your special sister: This is pricier, but I bought one for my sister-in-law’s bday and then another for my other sister-in-law for Christmas. Beautiful! And frees up table space to have salad off to the side. It’s around $75, and has shipping charges on top. http://amzn.to/rzk9yV
Your in-laws again, your parents, your brother: I might have talked this up last year. We bought another this year for a different receiver. It’s short, cocktail-height, and perfect for beach or camping or picnic. Comes rolled in a bag, about the size of those collapsible chairs. Under $40 and I see they now offer different colors! http://amzn.to/vreR6s
