Last Halloween I found really nice flashlights for a dollar. I tied a tag on each one and I think they made a perfect Halloween gift. We actually used the one Jack got this week when we went on our ghost hunt. A year later and it is still working and not torn up. That is almost unheard of in this house.
This year I decided to do a book. I purchased 20 from Scholastic. I printed some simple Halloween labels and now that task is done. Now I can focus on what to put together for Christmas. I went with this book because it is age appropriate and each book was only a dollar. Score!
I can't help myself when I get on Scholastic and ended up purchasing books for us to enjoy this month, some Thanksgiving books, an ABC train puzzle for his birthday, and then a few books that he will receive from Santa. The books he gets for Christmas are not Christmas themed but books that are about construction vehicles. I'll purchase a few Christmas books closer to the middle of Thanksgiving. I don't like buying Christmas books too early because there will always be new ones that come out closer to the holidays and then I'll want to buy those too.
I love Scholastic for finding themed books, special character books like Paw Patrol, activity books, and educational games and toys. I'm really excited about him opening the ABC train puzzle. He loves the alphabet and trains so I think it will be perfect.
What do you like to gift to toddler friends for Halloween?
