We are in our final week of Hatchett Design Remodel’s Toys for Tots campaign! Our collection of toys for local girls and boys is growing daily thanks to the generosity of our clients and our staff. The toys will be gifted to local children of all ages including infants, toddlers, pre-schoolers, grade-schoolers, tweens and teens.
Any gift you give will be greatly appreciated, but we know it can be challenging to shop for children you don’t know. It’s especially hard to shop for teens and tweens, and that is why they are often overlooked.
Tweens aren’t quite yet teenagers, yet they want to be teenagers! The age range of a tween is between 8 and 12. While adults see them as the kids they are, this group of children are developing a sense of independence and individuality. As they mature, so does their taste in “toys”.
We’ve turned to Brostick before for their help with teen/tween shopping, and we recommend checking out their Top 58 Gifts list again this year.
Shopping for this age group can be challenging due to the price tags as well. These more mature children tend to want more expensive toys, but there are several budget friendly gifts that will bring a smile to any teen or tween on Christmas morning. Grown & Flown has compiled a go-to list of gifts under $25.
Gift cards to online shops, local stores, and eateries are always a hit with independent teens and tweens who prefer to do their own shopping.
We’re accepting toys and monetary donations now through this Friday, December 13th, at both our Newport News and Virginia Beach showrooms. Please drop off your unwrapped toy anytime during our business hours Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm. Online donations can be made to our local chapter of Toys for Tots by clicking the link on our homepage.
Thanks in advance for helping Hatchett Design Remodel spread hope this holiday season. It’s not just a toy – it’s a gift of joy!
As you gather with friends and family to give thanks for all your blessings, we ask that you do what you can to help those less fortunate. Join Hatchett Design Remodel is collecting Toys for Tots this Thanksgiving weekend. It’s traditionally the best weekend to shop, so you can save while you give!
The big stores, like Walmart, will be featuring special Black Friday deals on toys. Kohl’s, for example, has up to 50-60% off their Black Friday deals, including classic wooden toys by Melissa & Doug.
Boutiques and Mom & Pop shops all over Hampton Roads will be offering special deals throughout their stores, toys included. Shop on this day and support two great causes – Buy Local and Toys for Tots. Check out local toy stores like POP Kids Store in downtown Norfolk or Matt & Juliette in Williamsburg. Boutiques such as Le Marche and A. Dodson’s in Ghent aren’t specifically “toy stores”, but they have a great selection of unique gifts for kids of all ages – and you’ll probably find a little something for yourself in there as well!
If all that tryptophan leaves you too tired to get off the couch to tackle sales on Friday or Saturday, then Cyber Monday is for you! Pretty much any store with a website will be featuring special savings on Monday. Amazon’s Best Sellers list is a great way to find out what’s popular with the kids this year.
Toys for Tots is a long standing tradition in the U.S. Marine Corps, and their mission is to bring “a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children at Christmas.” That’s a mission we are on board with at Hatchett Design Remodel. The toys we collect on their behalf stay local and go to children right here in our own community.
From admin and management to design and construction, the Hatchett team supports Toys for Tots internally, and we would like to increase our impact by inviting you to contribute.
