1. Make sure to get gift receipts (to help other people out, and also for the presents that you purchase because you may never locate the regular receipt again).
2. Don't cross out the price of the present on the present. I couldn't return a book to Borders because of this.
3. Buddy and Princess Sparkley are almost two years apart in age, but as they are getting older, their interests are pretty similar. So next year, if Princess Sparkley wants something that Buddy might also be interested in, get it for him as well. (Case in point, this year, Webkinz).
