With the holidays quickly approaching (we can’t believe it either), we’re looking for any chance we can to stock up on the best Christmas gift ideas without breaking the bank.

Today, it already seems the best spot to gather some great discounts on holiday toys and games is none other than Amazon. Right now, Amazon is offering a bunch of popular classic toys and games (read: easy and affordable presents) on a buy two, get three deal. They don’t have to be the same item, age range or gender either. Just hit the promotion page and add any three items from the options you see on your screen to your shopping basket. Then just proceed to checkout, and you’ll see you are getting the third one free.

You don’t often see these types of promotions on Amazon, let alone with popular toys and games. The 3-for-2 promotion includes classic games including:

  • Settlers of Catan
  • Scrabble
  • Trivial Pursuit
  • Jenga
  • Connect 4
  • Cards Against Humanity
  • Lite Brite
  • Clue
  • Nerf Guns
  • Kinetic Sand

As we get later in the season, we may see some leftover or castaway toys on this sort of special, but right now — it’s still early days, and there are some surprisingly great options. This deal also includes The Original Slinky Walking Spring Toy, which has been stretching and jiggling into children’s lives for about 75 years — and is still a crowd favorite. At this price, how can you go wrong?

Classic board games like Monopoly are also included. Who doesn’t remember playing this game with family and friends and trying to bargain their way to real estate royalty? This game is still around, and it’s still loads of fun. Or, perhaps stock up on a few Rubik’s Cubes. This contorting cubic contraption may be a pastime for kids, but plenty of adults can’t get enough of it — making it a fabulous stocking stuffer gift idea at under $10.00 each.

There are a few qualifiers on this deal, just like any other. You’ll have to stick to items specifically from Amazon and not third-party sellers. All the items must be in a single order and shipped at the same speed to a single address, so while you may be able to stock up on lots of holiday gifts, you’ll still probably have to have them all sent to yourself and then distribute them to different people on your own. Still, what a bargain!


Looking for some gift-giving inspiration? Here are some of our favorite toys and games we plan on having wrapped up under the Christmas tree this year, all of which are included in Amazon’s 3-for-2 promotion.

This grainy grid is a great toy, even if the sketch etch’d never looked as good as you’d hoped.

Rubik’s Cube

Don’t worry; when you’re done with it, it becomes a mismatched multicolored mosaic paperweight.
