Christmas is right around the corner. Ummm, excuse me? No! I thought it was just May and we were getting ready for a birthday party, right?
Nope! Honestly I love this time of year but it came all too fast as it does every year. My favorite time of year is upon us which also means gift buying time is upon us.
We have our son make a list of his top few items he wants. This year his list was five items long and it is very true what they say. Boys never out grow their toys, they just get more expensive ;).
I am a deal seeker outer. I try to find deals on items that he wants or that I would like to buy my family. That sometimes leaves me at the last few days before I get everything done. If you know me, that drives me nuts. So I am trying to start way earlier this year and I have. I have already been seeking out the Black Friday ads and deals that come on before that crazy day. I am also trying to buy from those I have reviewed from this year. There are some great products out there and if you are looking for them be sure to check out my Facebook page to see them.
One thing I do love is to shop online. I can do it anytime and without my kiddo seeing what I am sneaking. It used to be easy when he was little. He had no idea what that big box was. Now, not so much. :) I love that places like Amazon have deals running all the time now.
One thing on the list that I am putting on there is the new Crayola Crayon Maker. This thing looks awesome! Have you seen it yet? I know that I haven't always been too terribly crafty but I love coloring! This new item from them looks like loads of fun and who doesn't like creating things? Check it out and see what you think!
So what is on your kiddo's list this year? What is on yours? Do you have any tips for shopping for that hard to buy hubby? Have a great Wednesday!!
