Great gift idea list. We live in a small apartment. Moreover, we just took out the toddler bed and replaced it with a twin bed and even that took away a good percentage of space in my daughter room. We got a few toys that could easily slide under the bed but did stock up on stationary and craft supplies (like you mentioned) they are fun and very easy to store.

I keep putting museum memberships and magazines on the kids' Christmas and birthday wishlists, but so far, no one's gotten them. I know my kids would love to visit the science museum on a reg. basis, etc. but I guess it's more fun for the gift-givers to see them open a wrapped toy than a little card.
