What a fun idea! If your child loves to play dress-up, wouldn’t it be fun to place a treasure chest filled with inexpensive dress-up clothes for your little princess or super hero under the Christmas tree? πŸ™‚ Check out this frugal idea from reader Claire…

Hip2Save This Holiday Guest Post Submitted By Reader Claire…

One of my daughter’s favorite gifts ever was a huge box of dress up clothes. A few years ago she was really into dressing up and I couldn’t believe how expensive dress up clothes were. I had the great idea to shop the after Halloween sales. We have a few Halloween stores that open seasonally and then close in November. I went to the Halloween store November 1st and got tons of costumes for 50 and 75% off. I got lots of things she could mix and match-cute scrubs, fancy dresses, wigs, play jewelry, leotards, and much more.

I then got a cute treasure chest from Hobby Lobby for 40% off. My daughter still talks about this present and says its her favorite. This year I am planning on adding more dress up clothes for my toddlers. My son loves all the super hero costumes and my youngest daughter needs some princess clothes. This was a fairly inexpensive present that had a great big impact! Even if you don’t want to go all out and do a whole dress up box, you could pick up one or two dress up outfits for someone on your list.
