Last Minute Christmas Ideas for Kids to Get Loved Ones

It is officially “crunch” time for Christmas. There are only a few shopping days left until Christmas Day arrives. For many of us, we still have a few last-minute Christmas gifts left to buy. If you’re like me, the gifts you have left to buy aren’t necessarily supposed to be from “you” but from your little ones. If you still have to take your little ones shopping for gifts for them to give parents, grand-parents and friends you may find the list below helpful, which can ultimately save you time!

Digital Keychain, Photo Frame or Snow Globe – All three of these ideas are great for recipients such as grandparents, parents, Aunts and Uncles. Why? Everyone has pictures they want to share with the world and look at on a regular basis…especially grandparents, parents and other relatives. Plus, you can preload pics, making it a ready-to-go-gift! The new digital photo frames and key chains make this possible! And, just today at Wal-Mart (back by the cameras) I saw a digital snow globe! These items vary in price, which makes it possible to find one within your budget. Costume Jewelry – Right now, costume jewelry is back in style, making it one of the easiest last-minute gifts for little ones to pick out for their jewelry-loving relatives! Most kids, even little boys, enjoy picking out jewelry for people and a lot of costume jewelry is inexpensive, yet still pretty with a variety of different outfits. One of my favorite places to take our son for this is Dillard’s. Just the other day he picked out a necklace and matching earrings for his grandmother for under $35! Sports Apparel – If dad is one of the last people your kids have left to buy for, you can easily take them to any…

3 Cool Christmas Gift Ideas for Young Boys

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? Last night, I finally got on the ball and did a little shopping via the internet (my favorite way to shop!) and “knocked off” three people from my holiday shopping list. They were all little boys…as the mom of two boys myself, it makes shopping for other boys much easier and they are usually the first ones to get scratched off the list.

However, just because I am able to get the little boys gifts before all the adults on my list, that doesn’t mean that I don’t have a hard time coming up with ideas for them. This is why I start shopping early for them. As a result of my online shopping trip last night, I actually found three cool Christmas gift ideas for young boys and I wanted to share them with you because I know that some of you are at a loss for what to get your little men this year for Christmas…and possibly even their birthdays?

Heavy Duty Metal Trucks – It’s common knowledge that little boys enjoy playing with trucks. For the last 5 years, my son has continuously asked his grandparents, aunts and uncles for trucks for birthday and Christmas gifts. However, boys are ROUGH on those trucks and sadly, not many of them have withstood his rough playing habits. This year, my husband and I are going to get him a big truck for Christmas, but it will be a heavy duty metal truck that he shouldn’t be able to break. These trucks are more expensive (usually starting at $50 or so), but when you figure how much you (and relatives) will spend on cheaper trucks that break, the extra money is well worth it…and, at Christmastime, you can’t go wrong with the big…
