Anders says a complete stranger noticed she wasn't wearing shoes.
"She stopped and took her socks off and put em on my feet," said Anders.
That good samiratan was just the first of many to offer to help.
A neighbor donated the family toys and the gifts have continued to arrive.
Tiffanie's husband Joshua says there's no way the family could replace all the clothes and Christmas gifts they lost for their two young daughters.
"I just want everybody to know how appreciative me and my family and kids are," said Joshua. "It's not like I can say kids sorry Santa Clause can't come to a burnt down house this year."
With the generosity of people in Gallatin and Cottontown the Anders feel like Christmas will happen for their daughters.
As it turns out the couple is happy to even be thinking about presents.
The fire started just before 7 AM in the section of the house where those Tiffanie's daughters usually sleep.
"I brought em to my bed to sleep with me this morning," said Tiffanie. "If my children had been sleeping in the living room where they generally do sleep we would not have made it out."
The fire's cause has not been determined but the family believes it may be related to an electrical problem.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Queen Elizabeth's youngest son, Prince Edward, is visiting Tennessee to promote one of the British royal family's charities, the Duke of Edinburgh's awards.
The prince presided over an awards ceremony at the governor's mansion in Nashville on Thursday for the first batch of young Tennesseans to participate in the leadership and character program.
About 80 youths received the award by participating in community service, skills development, physical fitness and adventurous journeys through the Boy Scouts, Boys and Girls Clubs, LEAD Academy, Montgomery Bell Academy or the Miss Tennessee Scholarship Organization.
Following the event, Gov. Bill Haslam and first lady Crissy Haslam invited the awardees and their families to tea inside the governor's residence. Later on Thursday, the prince was scheduled to headline a black-tie gala at Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville.
