Holiday Treasures

I adore shopping for Christmas presents! Fighting the crowds in the stores…not so much, which is why I typically do all of my shopping online.

My kids are at the age where they are still relatively easy to shop for – my boys are ages 1 1/2 and 3. They’re both really into trucks and action figures.

My daughter is almost 5 and loves anything that has to do with Barbie and baby dolls.

I popped into Family Dollar the other afternoon to pick up a few Christmas decorations.

As I was walking through the store, I was shocked to see the great selection of toys that Family Dollar had to offer! There were the exact toys that I would have found at a Target or Wal-Mart!

I thought I’d see if they had anything truck related that my boys would love. I was able to find several different toy trucks from which to choose! I ended up choosing a Ford Super Duty Transporter that came with two additional trucks. It had several buttons that when pushed made truck noises as well as made the lights on the truck flash. In a bigger store this toy would have easily cost me over $20. I was pumped to see that it was only $10! I picked up one for each boy. That’s $20 for two gifts!

I then started looking for something in the girl section for my daughter. They had a fantastic selection of baby dolls. But, I was pleasantly surprised to find that they had real Barbie brand Barbies! In fact, they had the exact Barbie table set that my daughter had seen at a bigger store earlier in the week! A lot of the real Barbie brand things can be slightly expensive in my opinion. So, I was pleased to see that it was only $15 for a Barbie, table, two chairs and accessories!

It was such a fun and unexpected surprise being able to check three gifts off of my Christmas list. I didn’t have to fight any crowds like I would in bigger stores and I found exactly what I would have purchased in a larger store. On top of that, Family Dollar is running a great deal right now where they’re offering 10% off of $100 worth of toys! In Family Dollar world that’s a free toy people!

Take my advice and head to Family Dollar to get your Christmas shopping done!

I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the treasures you’ll find!
