My only advice is not to get carried away! Stuff piles up so quickly (for me anyway) buy one special thing like a Teddy bear or doll that you can have forever and be able to tell them about their first Christmas when they see it and go practical for everything else (ie clothes, feeding supplies, jammies, bathtime essentials, etc.) People love to buy for a baby so you'll probably end up with a ton of stuff anyway :-) congrats on your little one.

I will not be able to do gifts for Christmas this year due to financial issues. I am really concerned for my 10 year old. I am hoping to be able to get him at least 1 item.

I know what you are going through, I've been there my self, my husband was a disabled veteran, when my kid were little, there was time we didn't have money for gifts, but there were some agency's that helped, now I don't know where you are,so I can only tell you of the ones available in my area. If you or your husband are a veteran, go to your local Veterans Administration. They will also help with other needs.

Sorry for such a long reply... I've made a list of Christmas resources, so I just copy & pasted because didn't feel that including the link was appropriate :-) Hopefully something on the list is able to help you or someone else.

Schools ~ Often times if you speak with a principal or guidance counselor, the school has something set up so that they can help get children something for Christmas. My parents used this option often when we were little. They’ll usually do more clothing options than anything, but every little bit helps.

Salvation Army - www.salvationarmyusa.org/ ~ Usually you can go in and talk to them about getting on a list to get your child a present. They’re the people that stand in front of stores dressed as Santa, ringing bells to get donations.

Food Shelves — Great place to go for extra help with food. Sometimes they have things like potatoes, stuffing, turkey, etc. near Thanksgiving and Christmas time. Also, the one here, if you ask them, they usually have toilet paper, laundry detergent, dog food, and things like that for people who need it.

Churches ~ The one I used to go to gave socks and canned foods to people quite often. Most will usually help you with Christmas presents, clothing, and Christmas dinner.

Fire Department ~ Talk to your town and see if they have parties. Some of them have them on Christmas where children can go sit on Santa’s lap and get a present. We went to these often as kids, and it was awesome seeing Santa come in and get to talk with him.

www.wish.org ~ Only children between 2 1/2 and 18 with life-threatening illnesses are eligible to get help. It’s still a good resource though, for families out there who may need it.

www.freecycle.org/ ~ I haven’t seen a whole lot on here in my area, but I’ve heard other people mention it before. Different people in your area give away free items. It’s similar to Craigslist.

www.livestrong.com/article/216548-how-to-apply-for-christmas-help-for-low-income-families/#ixzz2E6h8Vwu9/ ~ The United Way is another way to get Christmas gifts for children. I don’t know a heck of a lot about them, if I’m being perfectly frank. They have step-by-step instructions on how to apply, though.

www.prisonfellowship.org/programs/angel-tree/registration/ ~ Children who have incarcerated parents are eligible to receive free Christmas presents. I’m not sure how to actually request them, but it’s worth looking into.

www.wishuponahero.com/ ~ I've seen people use this for things as small as a pizza up to as large as medical bills. You make a wish and wait for someone else to grant it.

craigslist.org/ ~ They have a section where things are free. You probably will have to pick it up yourself, but you can see what people have listed before leaving. Books, boats, couches, boxes, old TVs, firewood, and lots of other random odds and ends. Be sure to locate the right state for you.

www.toysfortots.org/ ~ You sign up and they send toys to children from Santa. I’m not sure what their age cutoff is though, or if they have one. Worth looking more into though.

www.pgeveryday.com/ ~ Proctor and Gamble is a pretty popular manufacturer. They make Gain, Pantene, etc. They send out free samples 4 times a year. Usually takes 6 - 8 weeks to arrive. They also have coupons.

www.thredup.com/ ~ This site sells lightly used children’s clothing. You can get free money to purchase their clothing by getting friends to sign up and buy stuff. When your children outgrow their clothes, you can get a free bag from them and send the clothes in for money or credit for their site. The clothes have to be in decent shape and they'll only take certain brands, but I've seen things selling for as cheap as $2.

freestufftimes.com/ ~ I've used this site often. It's like a big hosting website for free things. They have free samples, magazines, books, DVDs, and just random odds and ends. They also have

www.sendacallfromsanta.com/ ~ Free phone call from Santa before Christmas. I don't believe they call on Christmas, though.

www.portablenorthpole.com/home ~ Free video message from Santa on or before Christmas. Not sure when exactly :-)

Mostly done here. Just ordered my step-daughter a Kindle Fire this week, all with gift cards that I earned on Swagbucks. Still have some Amazon shopping to do for others, but am waiting until after we move at the end of the month - currently have $447 in the Amazon account, and that should cover the rest, and some nice things for the new house for me. :)

I'm not Christian either, or religious at all, actually... but Christmas is fun! And unless you go to church or something, it doesn't actually have much to do with Jesus. Just joy and giving and, well, presents!

Yea, I'm not a Christian either, but we do a 'christmas' for my kids. When everyone goes back to school in January with new clothes, toys, and gadgets and my kids have nothing, they feel like crap. I don't buy them a bunch of over the top shtuff, but I show them I love them, and remind them that it's wonderful to see the look on someone's face when you do something special for them.

Actually, a lot of non-religious people celebrate Christmas either because they enjoy the spirit of it or like the gift giving/gift receiving aspect. I'm not Christian & I celebrate Christmas. :P

The past few years my family, friend, and coworkers have all agreed to have Buy Nothing Christmases. Instead we either donate to non-profits, give each other food, barter household items with each other, or find secondhand/thrifted/discarded non-essentials. It's been awesome! No pressure, no stress, no coveting, and virtually no expense. It seems weird to celebrate the birth of a man who was homeless by choice and spent his whole life helping the poor and renouncing material possessions by consuming and acquiring more and more material possessions. Kind of a backwards holiday tradition. Haha.

Just give each person a business card with your referral link.
