Angel Tree: Gifts for children in Mexico

The company I work for is again hosting an Angel Tree in our office.  Last year, I choose a young girl and this year I chose a 2 yr old boy.  Since I don’t have children, it was quite fun to pick out cute outfits for this child.  Although, I have to say that children’s clothing is expensive!  I was surprised to see that children’s clothing is as expensive as adult clothing.

For the 2 yr old boy, I purchased item from Kohl’s.  I was surprised to discover than pro skateboarder, Tony Hawk has a boys clothing line at Kohl’s and the clothing is pretty darn cute.  I purchased a mock layer button down shirt, pants, hoodie, and socks. The toddler athletic shoes are by Sketcher and have lights that blink in the heel and the “S”.

As always, there were a few tags left on the tree and to make sure all children receive gifts, the company covers any left over tags.  My colleague, Sonya and I divided the children.  I took two tags and over dinner I was explaining to my husband about the tree and how I needed to shop this weekend for gifts.  My husband gave me money to cover the cost of the two unclaimed tags so off I went to Target to shop.

One of the tags was for an 8 yr. old boy.  As I was looking at boys clothing, I found a clothing line by Shawn White.  Shawn is a pro snowboarder in the US and I really liked this line of boys clothing. The bomber hoodie jacket is really adorable.  I also purchased a long sleeve t-shirt, jeans, socks, and athletic shoes.

The last tag was for a really tiny 18 yr old girl.  I picked up a purple fleece jacket and tried to coordinate the outfit with purples and grays.  The Ugg style boots are really cute.

I also purchased a soccer and basket ball and a few playground balls, plus a package of 18 jump ropes. That should keep ’em busy 😉

This year I’m heading down to Mexico on Dec 20th as the photographer / videographer. I’m at that age where I don’t really “need” anything so it will be wonderful to see children enjoy their gifts. After all, Christmas is for children.
