2015 Holiday Gift Guide For Kids


Are you the "plan ahead type of person" who shops all year round for Christmas gifts? Or are you the last minute shopper ?  I am both actually, we save up all year round to prevent the Christmas budget stress. We also have a good size  container in the garage of "after season sale" items. Most of the time  you will score a great gift item for about 75% off.  Sometimes though, I forget certain gifts to give, so I tend to shop during the hustle and bustle of Christmas season. ..

 If you are looking for gift ideas for kids, use this as a guide! From learning toys and just for fun gift items!
