Tom and Katie Play Santa in N.Y.

They're making a list and checking it twice!

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes did a little holiday shopping on Katie's day off from the theater – but not for trinkets for little Suri.

Shortly after New York City's famed toy store, FAO Schwarz, closed Sunday, the couple slipped in to go on a little shopping spree for children they don't even know.

They are expected to pile up shopping carts full of dolls, toys, books, and games to donate to Stockings with Care, a not-for-profit organization that gives gifts to children in need.

The organization, founded in 1992, assists homeless and near-homeless families by fulfilling thousands of needy children's "wish lists" for presents to open on Christmas morning to "create the magic of Christmas."
