Children’s Orchard Giveaway

The holidays can be quite expensive, so one option for how to save money when buying for your children is to consider buying from a resale/consignment shop. I have done this in the past and it really is a good option as you are not paying full price for an item that may not get used that often (as is often the case with many kids’ toys). You can often find some almost-new or gently used toys, books, clothing, baby equipment & more at resale or consignment shops!
Children’s Orchard is a large resale shop which is located in 20 states throughout the US. They specialize in selling only quality items and mostly brand name items. They even use special lights to inspect the items they buy from sellers, so that you can be sure that you’re getting like-new merchandise. I think that’s pretty cool because it’s often hard to see those grease stains in certain lighting and it’s frustrating to buy something and then bring it home and find some stains.
As a resale shop, Children’s Orchard provides some great benefits to those who sell their items to them. For example, they will buy items year-round versus other stores which will only accept items for that particular season – so if you decide to clean out the closets one weekend, you can bring in all your items and not have to store it & wait for another season. They also pay cash for your items right away instead of working it as a consignment sale – and if you accept store credit, they’ll offer up to 50% more for items.
Children’s Orchard also offers some great deals such as their M.O.M.S club, which is an email newsletter you can sign up for stay up to date on all the latest sales, discounts & more. By signing up, you’ll receive a $5 gift card (Cache card) to use at the store, birthday gifts for your kids, info on special discounts throughout the year($30/$10, Fill a bag for only $5, etc.).

I always love photo gifts. My favorites to give are calendars and photo books. These are especially great for grandparents. My mom loves any way to show off her grandson!!!

My son loves playsilks. You can find them for cheap, cheap, cheap at thrift stores. They become capes, make forts, tuck babies in, play peek-a-boo, etc. We can't seem to have enough playsilks.
I think books are a great gift!!!
This year I am making photo book stories for the great-grandparents. I wrote a little story about the kids and then used some of our all-time favs for the photos. I love the idea mostly because I think it's so much better than a recent pic for a frame. Something more for them to hold on to and look at when we live so far away…
A ball. It is a great gift.

Best gift idea. Have the children put their feet and handprints on an 8×10 piece of paper, write their name and had it framed for grandma and grandpa!
