FAQ

  1. I have several gifts for my child, but the bag doesn’t look very full, what should I do?

     

  To help fill your bag, try:

  • Wrapping all gifts separately

  • Using a gift box

  • Putting small items in a BIG box, or even several boxes for added fun!

  • Adding a larger item like a fluffy blanket, pillow, duffle bag or Popcorn Tin​

  2. My child’s gifts don’t all fit in the Red Bag, what do I do with the other items?

If presents don’t all fit in the Red Bag provided, please put the extra gifts in a large black trash bag.  Be sure to create a label identical to the one you are given with the child’s name in the middle, age on the lower left corner, and identification number in the lower right corner.  Also, let us know this child has two bags by adding “1/2” in the upper right corner of the label for the Red Bag that you were provided and “2/2” on the label you create for the black trash bag. 

  3. There aren’t many items on my child’s Wish List, what should I get for them?

Here are some ideas that are good for most kids:

  • Hygiene items or kits

  • Card game

  • Cosmetic or Toiletry bag

  • Book, Magazine, Puzzle book

  • Pillow

This is a good idea for items such as coats, shoes, and clothes to ensure proper fit.
