Holiday Gift Guide to Make Your Shopping Easy

Hi Friends, today I’m sharing my Holiday Gift Guide! I originally wasn’t going to post my Gift Guide until November 1st but I couldn’t wait any longer and decided to share it on my Instagram stories last night. I always have ideas of what I’m going to get the kids early in October for Christmas, then it’s just a matter of ordering them online or going to the store to buy them. The three main places I purchase my Christmas gifts are, Target (online or in person) and Sam’s Club. I also have a deadline in mind to get majority of my Christmas shopping done before Thanksgiving! I rarely Black Friday Shop…maybe a little cyber Monday but, I try to be done by then so I can enjoy December and take my time wrapping the presents and enjoying traditions!

Where to find the Gift Guide

On the menu bar up top [take a second to look], I have a tab that says Holiday Gift Guide and when you click on that tab, it will take you straight to the gift guide. I may add more stuff to the list if I forgot about something but I really put a lot of thought into the items I selected. Some items on the Gift Guide are things that we already own and the kids still love and play with today or new items they are asking for this Christmas and I highly recommend.

Shopping for the girls

The girls gift guide ranges in age from 6 – 8 years old, but really most of the items can be for a variety of different ages. Shopping for little girls is fun and easy because they are always into so many different things!

Shopping for the boys

For me, shopping for pre-teen/teen boys is really hard because there is just not a lot of stuff they are into besides video games, sports, their phones, clothes etc., so finding a good gift can be challenging! I hope most of these items listed below can help you get ideas for the pre-teen/teenage boys in your life.

Toy Advent Calendars

This year my kids are opening Toy Advent Calendars and I am so excited!!! They have been asking me for the last two years to get them these type of Advent Calendars and in the past we just did the old school chocolate kind, which are still a great option. But this year I thought we would make it extra fun and add a new tradition with our countdown to Christmas.
