The holidays are just around the corner and thanks to those big toy books that come in the mail my kids make Christmas shopping easy, but then I have to go through and pick out what I’m going to get them. If it was up to them it would be half the book. I love shopping for gifts for people and will spend hours picking out the perfect one, but I know some of y’all hate it and I can understand why. There are so many choices and then there is the stress of whether or not they’ll even like it. When it’s someone I barely know gift cards are my go to, but when it comes to those that are close to me I love picking out their gifts.
Since this time of year is chaos I put together a small gift guide with items my kids are asking for this year. All under $50, but items the littles in your life should enjoy.
