$5 Limit (and a giveaway)

$5 Limit

So as the holidays approach, money always becomes tighter, doesn’t it? We try to stretch that dollar farther and farther. With that in mind, I was visiting Family Christian the other day and looking for items with a $5 price limit. I found some interesting things that I want to share and then I will have a giveaway for a $5 gift certificate for three (3) of you! I know it doesn’t do your shopping but it might help Santa out a bit.

I found a number of book possibilities at Family Christian for under $5. One of my favorites was The Berenstain Bears The Very First Christmas. I added this to our Christmas book tradition this year.

There were also these little activity books that are pencil rubbing books. The giggly girls love these! I got each of them two. However, I can’t find them on the Family Christian website.


Every time I go in, there seems to be a VeggieTales video or an Iesodo video on the $5 table. These are the ones on sale on the site at this time: VeggieTales: Noah’s ArkBuck Denver Asks…Why Do We Call It Christmas?, Veggie Tales:It’s A Wonderful Life/Christmas Sing Along Songs, Iesodo: Faith, Iesodo: Love. There are also a choice or two of more grown-up movies on the table, including Courageous and Fireproof.

Gift Giving:

What about some notepads? There are a selection of three notepad sets. There is Good News of Great Joy, Celebrate The Savior, and Celebrate Christmas.

Do you make goodies in the kitchen to give? Here are some cute containers you could package them in. There is a bowl , a tub, and a tray.


There are pencils, erasers, little toys, and more that can be found in the children’s section of our local Family Christian. These are always fun little additions to a gift if you need something more. Or if you are looking for several items to get with the $5 appreciation certificate you are going to win, these will fit the bill. They are not something typically shown on the website, though.

I will be purchasing some stickers soon and they all fall under less than $5 in cost. The ones I am going to get are the names of God because that is an upcoming monthly theme for Write the Word. These stickers will be a fun addition. There are a number you can choose from for whatever might fit your needs. I know that our girls have all enjoyed stickers, even now as they grow older. So, here is the page for the stickers sold on the website.

If your child is a reader, a bookmark might be a good choice. And Family Christian has a large selection. These could also be given as gifts to other children you know since they come in packs of varying numbers.

Looking for a highlighter that won’t bleed through? These Accu-gel Bible highlighters look pretty good. I haven’t used them but am always on the lookout for something like this.


A few ideas, right? There are many more available on the website and in store. If you are an email subscriber or part of the 1:27 program, you also probably have a coupon that will help you find some great stocking stuffer ideas.

At Home.

    I like to give personalized gifts that I’ve spent time making. Right now, I’m crocheting hats for a special little girl in my life and her mom.

      That is neat. I have always wanted to learn to crochet. Be sure to share a picture when the gifts have been given. I admire the work people put into handmade gifts.

    On one side of the family we always try to have more of a limit so that they idea is just thr thought of giving, not some expensive gift. On the other side of the family, people care more about what the gift is, so it’s harder to limit things there.

      It is interesting how families can be so different, isn’t it? Love that you recognize it and can work with it, though.

      They truly can be! We all change so much from year to year.

    I like to make gifts and gift bags. This year I’ve made my mom, my niece, her mom, and my fiance’s 3 niece’s each gift bags, as well as my step dad. I coupon, so it makes the gift bags much easier to build!
