Several boxes of toys.
Baby changing table, which I'll fix up for my sister.
Baby formula.

My wife picked up the changing table from a family living in our neighborhood, that she found on Craigslist. The husband is a professional Santa Claus, and lived up to the image. He offered to drop off every baby or child item he could find while cleaning out his garage and basement. What we don't have a need for, we will give to either my wife's sister, or my own sister, since both are in the process of having children.

I went with a friend to help another friend prepare for moving. I came home with a really good sifter, a mandolin (you know, slicer thingie) that sits on top of a container that holds whatever you slice/grate/etc., and several glasses that look like scotch glasses (small old fashioned), and wine glasses. Oh! And an afghan.

Good news as we needed a decent sifter for the clumpier GF flours, and I was poised to head to Dollarama for more glasses. DH breaks them with amazing rapidity around here. :shake:

A friend came by and dropped off a bunch of linens to embroider, some old flour sacking to sew into tea towels, and some nice crocheted lace valances and finished hand stitched linens. Beautiful work!

I also return 2 bags of dog food to costco and they have a rebate on the Kitchenaide mixer of $40. So I got it 1/2 free at $155. plus tax for a 5.5. And I can return the open one apparently for a full refund of $35.
