If you follow my blog on a regular basis you probably have read some of my posts about the Kohl’s Cares program.
Kohl’s Cares sells books, toys and other items through out the year that benefit the Kohl’s Cares program. New products are introduced throughout the year and are available for a limited time both in stores and online at Kohls.com.
Pproceeds from the sale of products in the Kohl’s Care collection goes towards children’s charities. Kohl’s Cares donates 100% of the net profit to Kohl’s Cares charities that support kid’s health and education programs nationwide. Since 2000 Kohl’s Cares has raised and impressive $257 million dollars.
Now is a great time to shop for Kohl’s Cares products. Not only can you get wonderful gifts for $5.00, you can also feel good knowing that the proceeds are going towards children’s charities. After all, the holiday season is about good will towards others. What a better way than to purchase wonderful gifts for those on your holiday shopping list AND help out children’s charities at the same time. It’s a win-win situation.
Currently Kohl’s Care is offering adorable, soft and snugly plush animals and matching books by Nancy Tillman. The stories are charming and the illustrations are beautiful.
I LOVE the book/plush combinations that Kohl’s Cares puts out year round. I have many “sets” in my family’s library collection. I like to display the book and plush together on the bookshelf. I rotate them every few months.
I’m just a bit kid at heart and I love displaying charming things around my home. I am also making a nice collection of children’s books for my future grandchildren. I’m looking forward to reading them the books while they cuddle with their furry friend.
The current available book titles are;
- You’re Here for a Reason
- On the Night You Were Born
- Where Ever You Are My Love Will Find You
- I’d Know You Anywhere My Love
The books are truly beautiful and each one expresses love in its purest form. I enjoyed reading each and every one of them.
The matching plush animals are adorable. The Panda is especially fuzzy. Every time I pick it up I utter the words “It’s so fluffy!,” just like Agnes did in the film Despicable Me.
Each item is only $5.00 (a book/plush combo will cost you $10.00). Where else can you get a beautiful hardcover book AND a quality made plush toy for $10.00? Most hardcover books will cost you that amount, and the plus animals would sell for MORE in other stores.
These “sets” would make for great holiday gifts as well as “grab bag” gifts for school. You can also buy them as sets or individually and donate to a local children’s charity such as Toys for Tots to give to underprivileged children and families in need. Not only will you be promoting literacy, you’ll also be provide a child in need with a new “friend” which will provide comfort and joy.
Another fun children’s product from the current line of Kohl’s Cares products are Color Me Christmas Cards. Your child can color and decorate their own holiday cares and write their own personal messages inside. The set comes with 20 cards to color, envelopes and three markers. You can also color the cards with colored pencils. The lines are very thin, so crayons might now work as well.
Kohl’s Cares always has products from grown ups too. This time they are offering a holiday music CD by Blake Sheldon – Blake Sheldon Christmas. The holiday CD features the following songs;
- Jingle Bell Rock – featuring Miranda Lambert
- Oklahoma Christmas- featuring Reba
- There’s a New Kid in Town- featuring Kelly Clarkson
- Home featuring Michael Bublé
- Winter Wonderland
- Silent Night- featuring Sheryl Crow
- The Christmas Song
- Blue Christmas- featuring Pistol Annies
- I’ll Be Home For Christmas
- Silver Bells- featuring Xenia
I’m not a fan of country music, but I do enjoy this CD. I especially like the duets with Kelly Clarkson and Michael Bublé.
Kohl’s Cares is also offering a holiday book called Holiday Delights featuring recipes, crafts and gift ideas from Good Housekeeping, Redbook and Country Living. Not only would this make a great gift it would also be nice for you to buy for yourself to help you with yummy recipes for your holiday meals and gifts you can make for family and friends.
The holiday book, Christmas CD and Christmas cards are also only $5.00 each and all the proceeds goes to the Kohl’s Cares program.
