Shopping for younger kids or toddlers might be the most fun part of your holiday shopping. Who doesn’t love those tiny shoes?! It’s no secret that kids outgrow clothing quickly, so thrifting clothing for little ones is a great way to save money. Make sure to buy a few sizes up to give them room to grow. We found these fun sparkling sneakers that are great for holiday wear and beyond.

Other great gift items for babies include: blankets and linens, educational games, and toys.

Looking to give something other than toys this year? Go for books. It’s a good alternative to screen time. Socks and clothing are also classic gift items. Many Goodwill stores have interactive games or crafts, like puzzles or model cars to build. It helps keep kids engaged when they’re on break from school.

Other great gift items for boys include: sports equipment, board games, craft items, and clothing.

If you have a glamour gal on your list this year, accessories make the perfect gift. These glittery gold pumps may feel like a splurge, but with a $7.99 price tag, they are luxe and affordable. Consider giving something that she can use throughout the year, like a purse. It can be dressed up or dressed down and is a great match for those shoes you just found. And for most accessories like jewelry, scarves, or sunglasses, you don’t need to worry about getting the right size.

Other great gift items for her include: socks, antiques, tea cups, jewelry boxes and home goods.

Shopping for guys on your list can be challenging, but Goodwill has lots of options. Sports team gear is always a hit, as are electronics. We found a great pair of like new sneakers and paired with it with a matching team shirt – perfect for the guy with laid back style. Next, we found this digital camera with zoom lens. It has that vintage appeal that could make it a collectible or decorative piece, but is also a functioning digital camera.

Other great gift items for him include: watches, ties, hats and gloves, slippers, musical instruments and records.
