We bought ours at Target for 39.99 last month. Right now at TRU they are 29.99. That is for the talking doll and lambie.

I preordered Brave, but I'm not sure if that will be for a gift or for me . I ordered it through the Disney Store and when it ships I will get a coupon code for $20 off a purchase of $39.99 or more (I think) and I'm going to then use that to get DD a suitcase.

I also ordered DD a set of hair chalk today. I'm not sure if she knows it exists, but she's always talking about wanting to color her hair different colors.

I decided to throw a Christmas party for my friends this year, yay! I am thinking we will play a few Minute to Win It style games, and that I could have a few small prizes. We are teenager girls, and I would want them to be no more than $5 each. Any ideas?

Also, I am working on a baking gift basket for one of my friends. I just bought a mini cupcake/muffin tray, and I am thinking of adding a cupcake recipe book, some cupcake paper cups, dish towels (since she doesn't have any...still blows my minds), and maybe some sprinkles and some icing bags. Anyone know where I can find some of these things at low prices? I don't want to spend a crap ton of money on this.

I am not sure if I want to get her the talking doll or the set I saw at BJ's. It's her doctor bag with the stethoscope, etc... and it comes with a smaller doll but still good size. We can't get her both so I need to settle with either or. My Christmas budget is shot since in Sept, DH had surgery and then the passing of my FIL (we live out of town from them) so travel costs, gas, taking time from work, my money is non existent.

Any ideas for elderly women? My Aunt is in her late 90s. She spends time with her sister and eats lunch out with friends. No hobbies at this point.

I've done gift cards to her favorite restaurants, store, magazine subscriptions, blankets, and last year I gave her a soft hoodie. I was thinking of getting her some nice soap and body powder at Crabtree and Evelyn (never bought anything there for myself so I don't know much about the store).

Does that sound like a good idea or does anyone have more suggestions?

When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

I got my grandmother a (microwave) heating wrap for her shoulders and back years ago that she really liked. It was lavender colored so I also got her lavender scented body stuff to go with it.
Here are other things I have given through the years
Gift basket filled with practical stuff like dishwashing liquid, kitchen linens, cleaning supplies, candles, etc)
Memory foam bath mat, new towels and soft robe
Willow Tree Nativity pieces
Angel statue for her garden
I'm having trouble thinking of something for her this year though.

Does she like to write? Maybe some neat stationary or cards, some new pens and some stamps?

Need some gift ideas for my 13 yr. old nephew. He loves history and is strong in his Christian faith. I have gotten gift certificates for him over the last couple of years and would love to get him some different Christmas gifts. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you for the ideas! I found a purple microwaveable heating pad on Etsy and ordered that. It comes with an eye pack too. I know she has sinus trouble so hopefully she will like it.

Michaels should have the cupcake paper cups, sprinkles, icing bags and maybe the recipe book. If you use a 40% coupon and buy them one at a time, you should be able to get them for a good price.

What about some of the C.S Lewis books?
