For your daughter: lip balms and glosses, nail polishes, gift cards, small (trial size) versions of deodorants, lotions, shampoos, etc., chewing and bubble gum, key rings, gloves and socks.

For your son: Matchbox cars, small books, sidewalk chalk, toothbrush and toothpaste, small toy animals, crayons.

Check out the "Dollar" section at Target, I went there yesterday and they have tons of things...ELF makeup with items for $1 or $3 each, a nice nail polish kit with five shades for $5, I bought some cute animal toys, a horse, a giraffe, and a lion, all a $1 each, and they have bagged Lego Mini figures on sale for $1.19, regularly $3.99 (they're at the check-out stands.) They also have small notebooks, pencils, boxes of candy, etc., in the $1 section. They sell gloves for $1, they're with the gloves and hats by the underwear for boys and girls. They have a $5 DVD section, too, where i picked up a couple of Thomas the Train ones as gifts, they could also go into stockings.

Also look at the Dollar Tree, they sell bags of firemen or policemen figures for $1, candy, gum, all kinds of treats, plus chalk and other fun items and goodies.

I'm with you, excited : )

This may sound terrible but I usually just hit the dollar store. I can either spend $20 at the dollar store on stupid trinkets that will get lost/broken/tossed out or I can spend $60 on stupid trinkets that get lost/broken/tossed out. We really can't afford as much this year and I'd rather put the money towards a bigger quality gift.
