The shopping season has begun here at our house!
(It actually is kind of a year round thing, I'm a sucker for a good deal and then I stow it away until gift giving time.)
I'm sure it is in full swing at your house too.
One of the things I always try to get done and out of the way early in the month, is stocking stuffers!
I remember as a kid that the stockings were never that exciting. But as I got older I got dependent upon the things that were in my stocking. I knew that each year I would get an orange, necco wafers, a pack of gum, a candy cane and a tooth brush. It was just something I knew to expect every year.
Once I got married and started having kids, I have kept the tradition of the stocking stuffer items alive. maybe not the necco wafers :)
My husband knows to expect a new tooth brush each year in his stocking and this year is no different. The kids this year will also be getting a new toothbrush in their stockings.
But this year it will be a little more exciting.
This year they will be getting not only a new toothbrush, but their very own toothpaste to match! Colgate Holiday Packs have Nickelodeon themed Dora and Sponge Bob toothbrushes and toothpaste packaged together. They are the perfect stocking stuffer for my little ones.
Little Miss loves to sing the Dora song and Mr. C. loves Sponge Bob. These holiday packs not only come with their favorite characters, the toothbrushes come in all sorts of different colors. So I could buy a pink one for little miss and a blue one for Mr. C.
Lately Mr. C has been telling me he doesn't want his teeth to come out. So I keep telling him that if he doesn't want his teeth to come out, he better take care of his teeth and brush them. He will flip over the battery powered tooth brush! I don't think I will be able to keep either of them out of the bathroom. They will just want to brush their teeth all the time. Which will make that bed time task a little more easy and their holiday smiles will be even brighter! Plus, I grew up on Colgate and now my kids will too.
You can find these Colgate Holiday Packs at Walmart. They had a nice big display near the toothbrush isle at my local Walmart. These are a perfect gift idea for those Nickelodeon fans! You can see and read all about my stocking stuffer shopping trip here.
I can't wait to be able to tuck these into their stockings. But for now they are hidden away in my "gift" cupboard with all the other goodies awaiting the arrival of Christmas.
