Looking for a unique Christmas gift idea that would be perfect for just about any child? Create a fairy garden kit, so they can craft up their own magical fairy garden! I found the cutest fairy garden kits and accessories at Big Lots, my go to store for Christmas presents, that would be perfect for a fairy garden kit. From starry lights and fairies to pinecones and faux snow, they had it all. This kit will be going to our neighbors, but I also picked up enough supplies to make our own winter fairy garden. There’s just something magical about a little fairy garden and my 3 year old visits it every morning, to say hello to her fairies. Don’t forget to include some glitter to sprinkle over the garden, to make the magic work.

As soon as I stepped into Big Lots, I was drawn to the aisles and aisles of holiday decor. Employees were friendly, asking if I needed any assistance, but I didn’t mind wandering around for a bit in the Christmas section. I spotted the cutest fairy garden sets and piled them in my cart. The next aisle was filled with wrapping paper and gift boxes, which I stocked up on and made sure to grab some cello wrap for my fairy garden kit. Along the back wall I spotted rustic ornaments and decor, which I just couldn’t resist for my buffalo plaid tree! All of the ornaments on my tree came from Big Lots. I also found some great stocking stuffers for the kids, new slippers for my mom and was able to leave with my Christmas shopping practically complete.

Step 2: Place the floral foam blocks at the bottom of the box and place the unpackaged fairy garden pieces on top. Don’t forget to include the moss, faux snow and starry battery operated light string. You can also include pinecones (Big Lots has cinnamon scented pinecones!), gems and decorative rocks in little baggies. I also included a couple extra fairies (also at Big Lots), at least one per child in the family.

Step 3: Place the box on top of the fairy garden planter, also found at Big Lots. Wrap a piece of cello wrap around the box and planter. Tie a piece of jute or string at the top and add a festive bow or ribbon.
