The Holiday Season is about remembering others. I am not talking about finding the “perfect gift”, but about helping those who are less fortunate. Without a doubt, many of us find the time and money to help those who can use a helping hand. That’s part of the Christmas Magic!

That’s why I find the Kohl’s Cares program to be especially win-win this time of year. They sell quality merchandise for $5, with 100% of the net profit going to supports children’s health and education initiatives nationwide.

This season the Kohl’s Cares program is reintroducing classic Peanuts storybooks, plush toys of Charlie Brown, Snoopy and friends and gifts, for just $5 each that will leave the entire family grinning from ear to ear. Just imagine, exclusive hardcover editions of beloved Peanuts storybooks by renowned author Charles M. Schulz, along with coordinating plush toys. Kohl’s also offers a cookbook, holiday CD and a Peanuts Jigsaw Puzzle – each a perfect gift guaranteed to spread holiday cheer this season.


For just $5 each, you will find something for everyone:

  • Holiday Shoe Boxes filled with Necessities and Small Toys for those in need
  • Toys for Tots and other Holiday Toy Drives
  • Gifts for ALL the Grandchildren
  • Office Gifts
  • White Elephant Gifts
  • Holiday Books and Plush for your own Children
  • Gifts for Children in Hospitals

There are gift ideas for kids and adults in the Kohl’s Cares Peanuts collection.

 My Thoughts: TheMomBuzz received two books and one plush. The plush we received was my favorite yellow bird – WOODSTOCK! He is a GREAT size, measuring 10″H x 5″W x 6 1/2″D. He’s larger than you would imagine from the comic strip. 😉 He is yellow, of course, with yarn-like hair and embroidered black eyes. Since he has no button eyes or parts he is considered suitable for babies on up. If he wasn’t part of the Kohl’s Cares program, you would easily be seeing him for $10+. His cost just being $5 is incredible awesome.

The books are incredible. They are hardcover and would easily retail for $16+. My favorite is A Charlie Brown Christmas. Don’t think this is a small book – it’s 10″ x 10″.  On each spread, one page features a wonderful Charles Schultz illustration and the other page the story. If you aren’t familiar with the story, it’s about Charlie Brown trying to understand the meaning of Christmas. Is it just about gifts, Christmas cards and decorating trees? His dog has gone commercial. His “friends” keep picking on him. But Linus reminds them all about what Christmas is really about. The Peanuts gang gets together and helps him find his Christmas spirit. This book is great for ages 3 – 10.


Another book option is called Be Yourself!, which also 10″ x 10″. The text in this one is simpler, with just a few inspirational and confidence building words per page. For example, “Be Active” or “Be Creative”. Then there are illustrations to go along with every phrase, for example Lucy writing to her “Sweet Babboo” with the words “Be Loving” on the next page.

The books, plush and CDs are simply great pairings and you can get them either at a local Kohl’s store or online at
