What should I put in my shoebox for Christmas?
- Your shoebox, once filled with little gifts – perhaps a few things to keep them warm, clean and/or entertained – and wrapped in bright Christmas wrapping paper, will bring a little joy into people’s lives. Each shoebox, once opened, will certainly bring smiles, wonder and delight to a child or pensioner living in dire circumstances.
Start with a quality “wow” item such as a stuffed animal, soccer ball with pump, or clothing outfit that will capture the child’s attention the instant he or she opens the box. See our gift suggestions according to age and gender listed below for other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies to fill the shoebox.
