This is the time I start scouting for Christmas present ideas for my growing extended family and friendship circle. Giving myself a head start prevents the anxiety that I otherwise gain from joining the December shopping crowds. It also allows me the time I need to stick within budget and find the BEST possible deals.
Shop For Tots – www.shopfortots.com.au - is my first stop this year. The impressive inventory of quality toys, clothing, accessories and baby/kid goods ensures I have at least half of my list checked off within my very first day of shopping.
My latest passion sees me moving away from plastic toys and sourcing wooden toys such as Le Toy Van and Janod. Interestingly, I have found these brands are lasting my kidlets through a number of their milestones, and withstanding heavy play without issue. I’m gifting a Le Toy Van Police Van this year to a special 3 year old, while Santa tells me that the Janod French Chic Bakery is coming to my own princess
I feel that tutus and pettiskirts are one piece of clothing every little girl should have in their wardrobe. They can be pulled out for special occasions, dress-ups, or in my daughter’s case, walking the plank as a tutu wearing pirate! We pounced on the Oobi Darcy Pettiskirt (reduced to $43.77) when we first saw it, and it has become one of our favourite pieces. For both boys and girls, a superhero cape is typically an item of awe. Check out Baby Leo for some of the best capes on the market (reduced to between $26.37 – $29.97).
To give yourself a head start on your Christmas gift list, hop over to Shop for Tots where you will find up to 70% off a range of delights. Excluding the Fairy Doors, all other full-priced items have been reduced by 40%! Plus spend over $100.00 and Shop For Tots will throw FREE shipping into the mix!
