Grandpa and Grandma gave the Lambs new sheets and blankets. This was one of their favorite Christmas presents and it was easy for Ram's parents to go online to buy. Lamb 1 and 2 got Star Wars and Lamb 3 got Lego Ninjago as requested. (Ignore their messy room after we returned home from Grandpa and Grandma's.) The Lambs are still talking about how happy they are that they each got their first choice of sheets and blankets.
Grandma also gave each boy a small box like the one by Lamb 3's bed. Especially Lamb 3 enjoyed putting all his little gifts in it after we opened presents. Some of their gifts were small like mints and Lego minifigures. Lamb 3 received a small enough Lego set that after it was built it fit in his box. He enjoyed looking at his treasures/playing with his Legos on the ride home from Grandpa and Grandma's. It was a good reminder to me that sometimes it's not the gift that is as fun for the child as the box! Lamb 3 did not ask for a huge Lego set, he wanted a small one that he could easily build and play with right away. Children do not always want bigger and more expensive.
