You’re done holiday shopping for your kids? Are you sure? If I may make a well-intentioned suggestion – rethink those gifts. Check them all, and then make like Santa and his list and check them twice. The last thing you want is your kid running down to the tree on Christmas morning, ripping off the wrapping paper, and being filled with disappointment. I’ve been there and it ain’t pretty – the frowns, the blank stares, the way-too-honest outbursts. Trust me, you don’t want to be on the receiving end of these tormenting tactics.
Lucky for you, there is still time to make those returns and get something they might actually want. Here to help you is somewhat of an expert on what’s hot and what’s not for childrens’ gifts. No, not Santa … my 8-year-old daughter.
We parents, we THINK we know what they want. But sometimes it’s best to get advice from a third party and not rely on your own guesses, or the insanity that is their Christmas list to Santa (my daughter actually included a “real live Pokemon” on her list. Yeah. That.) Here is what she thought all us parents should know and what she believes will be the best bets for this years Christmas gift giving. Take notes.
