Thrifty Holiday Gifting ForToddler

It’s easy to overspend on holiday gifts when the intended recipient is a toddler. After all, what can be more heartwarming than seeing a little one tear open a gift package with glee?

That expectation makes them one of the most enjoyable groups to shop for. But, the truth is, you won’t spoil the holidays if you don’t spoil your tiny tot. Keeping these thrifty suggestions in mind, you can enjoy gift-giving for the little ones in your life without having to spend a ton of dough.

Shop Low-Cost Toys

The good news is that lots of classic toddler toys are also relatively affordable — most can be found for $20 or less if you shop around. Think puzzles, art and craft supplies, building blocks and other stacking toys sized for little hands.

Buy Used

Thrift stores and used book stores can be treasure troves full of affordable gifts and gently used books. Parents magazine suggests looking toys over for signs of loose parts or chipped paint before buying them, and giving them a good cleaning. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure they haven’t been recalled before giving them as a gift.

DIY Gifts

If you’re feeling crafty, PopSugar has some great ideas for DIY toddler gifts. For example, you can make a colorful rattle by dyeing rice in a pretty color, and then pouring it into an empty and clean baby food jar. You can also sew old onesies, T-shirts or baby blankets into a colorful quilt.

Start Low-Cost Traditions

Family activities can help make the holidays special and instill the value of shared experiences over store-bought gifts into your little one. There are plenty of low-cost ideas you can turn into annual traditions, according to Forbes. For instance, you can invite your little one to help decorate holiday cookies, tour holiday light displays in the neighborhood or take part in a winter hike.

It can be easy to go overboard with holiday spending. With a little forethought and creativity, though, you can help ensure that your toddler isn’t just happy with her gift, and that you’re also free to enjoy the gift-giving because you kept your budget in check
