Our 2021 Gift Guide Categories: Gifts for Kids, Gifts Under $50, Gifts from Him & You!
We always say we won’t go overboard on Kids’ gifts every year, and somehow it happens. This year, we are developing a budget to keep us in line and to keep the clutter to a minimum. We are focusing on less gifts but with a great quality/meaning so that they wont end up in a donation bag five months from now. A few ways we are accomplishing this is by:
budget system: 5 gifts per child, 1 large gift to share, stocking stuffers buying better quality, long-lasting toys (fewer quantity) have the kids create their wish list early on so you can keep an eye out for sales take advantage of promo codes
The Instax Camera by Fuji Film North America make great gifts for any aged child! The magic of instant cameras shows on your kids’ faces when the picture pops out the top right before their eyes. Best Buy has the entire line of Instant Cameras right here! Ranging from $89 – $159 (*tip: you can keep an eye out for Best Buy’s annual Black Friday sale to snag one!)
