Every year it seems Christmas sneaks up on me.
I scramble a few days before Santa comes in hopes to “help the big man” locate those special gift my kiddos have asked for before Rudolph hooves hit my roof.
Most the time I am not very successful, but this year I’m prepared…at least as much as a mama can be. A few months ago I attended the Walmart Chosen By You Expo, a three-day expo to check out the holiday hot list 2015 and best of all, give feedback on what we thought was cool – even including the kids! From TVs, laptops, video games, toys, apparel, and grocery – they had it (of course they do, it was Walmart!) While there were hundreds of ideas for every person on your list from techie, gamer, outdoorsperson, crafty or entertainer, I honed in on the two giftees that will expect the most from me this holiday – my kids.
And all I can say was WHOA mama. (If you know that reference you get two points!)
While there were lots of blasts from the pasts that I grew up with, there was such serious toy action happening that I even put a few on my Santa list. I mean a chocolate pen? That’s the kind of “office supplies” I want to use! And forget my oven…I want a Girl Scout Cookie Oven. Yes, you read that right. You can get your Thin Mint fix after you finish your last box with this easy bake oven. It’s family fun for everyone with learning how to read and follow instructions, cook your first treat, and of course, enjoy the taste of the caramel-coconut goodness when you get to enjoy the “cookies” of your labor.
Now that I’ve got your mouth watering, get out your pen, your list, your wallet and let’s get ready to shop!
And with Walmart’s new Shipping Pass pilot program, for just $50 a year you can get FREE SHIPPING in three or less days FOR A YEAR! So get to clickin’ and soon you’ll be done with your shopping for them, so you can do a little shopping for you while you’re at it!
And just in case you need a few suggestions for what else you need for your list, just check these other items I spotted at the Walmart Chosen by You event! (Just in case you were looking for a gift for me, any of these will work!)
Best of luck for your holidays shopping – make it easy and get everything you need at Walmart.
