If there’s one thing I’ve learned about having to take on the role of Santa Claus it’s that those stockings can really deceive you! I distinctly remember my very first Christmas married to Tim. We filled each other’s stockings, and we both came up WAY short! They looked so pitiful, and were probably about 1/3 full. Both of us thought we had enough to fill the stockings until we set about our tasks late on Christmas Eve. Oops!
Don’t find yourself in the same position this year! I have some gift ideas for you that are affordable and that will take up some space in those stockings.
Right now, Walmart has Colgate Holiday Packs for children that feature Dora the Explorer and Spongebob Squarepants. These combo packs feature a battery operated toothbrush and toothpaste, and if you buy the combo pack, you save $1 over purchasing the components separately. That’s $1 that can go right back into your pocket, or more realistically, right back into your stocking! 🙂
I searched high and low at my nearest Walmart and wanted to purchase both packs for Darah. She’s a big Dora fan and is a HUGE Spongebob fan. In fact, her Grammies (that’s my mom) recently got her a small tube of Colgate toothpaste with Spongebob on it, and she was the most enthusiastic I have EVER seen her be about oral care while she had that toothpaste. She would run into to the bathroom saying, “It’s Spongebob time!” when it was time to brush her teeth. When the tube was used up, she burst into tears (I swear!).

While I found a good buy on Dora toothbrushes
And I found the Colgate toothpaste with Darah’s favorite characters on them
I didn’t find the holiday packs. And I went shopping two separate times to try to get them! Unfortunately, I also couldn’t find an employee who was willing to help me look (I found employees, just not willing-to-help employees). Hence this look on my face…
But I wasn’t leaving without some stocking stuffers for Darah, so I went for the Colgate value pack toothbrushes with Dora on them, and I got one of each of the Colgate toothpastes. She will be thrilled, I know it.
As you are wrapping up your shopping (or perhaps you are just ramping up your shopping!) remember these great products from Colgate. They are very practical, but also very fun. Isn’t it great to find a way for toothpaste and toothbrushes to become a special present?! And isn’t it also great to know that your stockings will be stuffed thanks to additions like this? Who know #HolidaySmiles could be this easy?
In addition to checking out the great Colgate Holiday Packs, also be sure to follow Colgate on Twitter and Facebook. That’s the very best way to hear about special promotions and discounts. I know I love a good coupon, myself, and I don’t want you to miss out any any, either!
