    This sale is over, but it's one they repeat from time to time, so I'm throwing it into this thread for people to look out for. Last week Vera Bradley had 60% off one of their patterns (watercolor). It took these umbrellas down to $12.50 each (currently $28 for sale colors and $32 for the new patterns). I bought eight of them to give to teachers, co-workers, and Secret Santa gifts. It brought the total to a hair over $100 so I got free shipping. I figure everyone can always use a spare umbrella, and these are prettier than most.

    I know! I tried to do this before ordering but didn't get the email with the discount code until the day after I ordered. And it was a one-day sale on the pattern so I was just out of luck for this time.

    I always liked getting those little Lego sets in my stocking. Wouldn't complain if I STILL got one. As far as deals, in the last month I've found $5-$10 Wii video games at Best Buy, a $50 Lego Marina set for $25 at Meijer, a $30 Lego UFO set for $15 at Walmart(lots of Legos on sale at Walmart, Meijer & Target), $16 Transformers for $5 at Family Dollar, 50% of Star Wars at Meijer, free gift cards w/ purchase at Claire's and a $90 complete bedding set for $9 also at Meijer! I'm done w/ a September bday, October bday & part of Christmas!

    I just ordered these for my co-workers: http://www.kohls.com/kohlsStore/cle...PRD~927315/SONOMA+life+++style+Banded+Cup.jsp. With the current 30% off with Kohls charge, they were just $4.20 each (I got free shipping because I bought a bunch of other stuff too). I plan to either put a $5 Starbucks card in it, or just fill them with a few Christmas candies.

    On a similar wavelength, for several older kids/teens (family friends) I need to buy something small for, I got these: http://www.kohls.com/kohlsStore/cle...D~927327/SONOMA+life+++style+Monogram+Cup.jsp. I'll add either a $5 Starbucks card or a $5 Jamba Juice or Smoothie King card depending on the age of the child. I got one for DD12 too, for her stocking. I believe in buying things that are just small enough to fit into the stocking, but that take up lots of space in it so I don't have to buy so much! :)

    OP here. Got another deal!

    BJ's has $100 gift card package for Uno's retaurant for $79.99. Saves $20!

    Can split them up and give to different people.

    Those cups are really cute. And I saw a teacher gift idea to fill them with pencils, which are usually on sale right about now. I thought that was a great idea.

    So far I have only gotten stocking stuffers for DD. She likes these Bizu beads (I think that is what they are called) and Target had them 70% so I got every kind they had for around $2 each.

    I don't really know what else the kids want yet so it is hard to buy anything. They are not really into any toys either so it will be video games, electronic devices, and clothes. However my boys still ask for Legos and Nerf Guns but they have a million of them already.

    Kids (cousins) ages 4-16 mostly girls
    Adults ages 20-85

    Funny/random is good but it also needs to be useful. I was thinking a roll of TP in each adult stocking :rotfl2: A "classy" bar-o-soap:lmao:(no grocery brands) Tissue packs? Last year I remember some people had some strange stuff! One got a roll of quarters for parking meters, some got moist wipes, a spatula. My aunt had tin foil in her stocking because she always runs out. Kids got small plastic/rubber animals, small race cars, gooey gel stuff. We try to keep it different each year.

    The large dolls are $14.99, which is pretty much the best price I've ever seen. DD even used some of her allowance to purchase one and she's usually tighter than tight when it comes to her own money.
