Find of the Week:
Got a kid on your
list who likes to building blocks? I found these three different
sets of Mega Blocks at Dollarama for just three bucks each. At
these prices, you can give the complete set.

Just fill a large plastic ornament with mini pinecones, sprinkle
in some Christmas confetti for a little sparkle and use a colorful
ribbon for a hanger.
If you wish, you can
tie pieces of greenery into the ribbon before hanging.
