Holy smokes, we’re in December! That not solely means the 12 months has formally flown by in file time, but additionally means we’re formally in present information season! You Freebs have requested for a 2018 present information, and who can say no to your cute little faces! Thus, I am again to share what we’re shopping for for Christmas this 12 months, and the way we’re giving wonderful presents which are nonetheless straightforward on our funds. (I am additionally throwing in some further present concepts for you whereas I am at it!)
As defined final 12 months, we purchase just about all of our household presents at Walmart. Fortunate for us all, they requested if I’d share our finds with you and partnered with me on this put up! (Um, hello. Sure. Sure please 100x. I imply, I speak about you on a regular basis anyway…) I am REALLY enthusiastic about our present information this 12 months, as a result of we’re taking a special strategy with our youngsters’ presents. Able to see what we did?
This is what we did:
This summer time our basement went by the Toypocolypse, for those who keep in mind from Instagram. In the future, after coming into our basement play room to the largest disastrous mess you’ve got ever seen in your life (but once more) I declared that I had had ENOUGH. Toys had been disregarded, damaged, and strewn EVERYWHERE! Consequently, we bagged up and donated about 2/Three of our toys and have not purchased any extra since. Consequently, our youngsters have performed outdoors extra, used their imaginations extra, and it has given us room for just a few particular toys that our youngsters actually adore.
For Christmas this 12 months we determined to be extra conscious about our toys. In years’ previous, we follow a very strict funds, and attempt to get as many toys as we will for that quantity. This 12 months we determined to up our funds, and select only one large “important” present for every baby, and for that present to be one thing that might maintain them lively/shifting, studying, or one thing that they might do with the household. Then, Santa brings them one medium to small present. I can already think about the nice recollections that will probably be made with these presents this 12 months, and really feel assured that none of them are going to finish up in a giveaway pile in just a few months!
Not too long ago, Daviy has been telling us that she’s able to experience her very personal bike (cue the waterworks! I severely cannot consider how briskly she is rising up!). At present, she is using her large sister’s yard sale hand-me-down. Since cute little Daivy is all about princesses as of late, we determined to get her the Disney Frozen 12″ Women’ EZ Construct Bike with Sleigh Doll Provider, by Huffy. Except for having one in all her favourite princesses on it, the bike can be straightforward to assemble, features a doll service for Daivy’s dolls, and has detachable coaching wheels. We won’t wait to see her face when she sees it on Christmas morning. I imply, the tassels and doll seat??? I am useless. So darn cute.
On her Christmas checklist for Grandmas, Grandpas, cousins, and Santa in fact, we additionally added this moveable Disney Bluetooth MP3 Karaoke participant. This lady likes to sing wherever, and would completely go bonkers over it!
Daivy’s birthday was the day after Thanksgiving. For years we’ve got given Calico Critter units to Priya for years. So once we noticed this cute Calico Critter Luxurious Townhome Present Set at Walmart for such a very good value, we simply HAD to get it for Daivy for her birthday so she will be able to play together with her sister!
I am obsessive about Calico Critters. Bubba’s mother STILL has the set they performed with as children, so I do know these will probably be generational toys for Daivy’s personal children sometime. We maintain these toys in a separate closet away from the black gap of the basement, thank goodness. It is secure to say she was shocked and happy by her present!
For over a 12 months now (together with final Christmas), Hutch has BEGGED us for a Hover Board. We stored telling him no, since it is a higher-priced merchandise. We acquired him a number of smaller presents final 12 months as a substitute, however because the Toypocolypse and specializing in one bigger present that may maintain them lively and shifting, we determined to make his needs come true. This 12 months he’s getting the Hover 1 Famous person Electrical Self Balancing Hover Board. There are many locations that promote this coveted present merchandise, however Walmart’s value (and rankings!) had been nice! Plus, this hover board is totally tricked out with LED lights, Bluetooth audio system, and app connectivity. We additionally acquired the Buggy attachment so the youthful children who aren’t sufficiently old to soundly steadiness can experience and revel in proper together with him!
Hutch is severely going to F-L-I-P O-U-T when he sees this, I am unable to wait!
Hutch can be actually into legos proper now, so on his Christmas checklist for Santa and different members of the family we put this LEGO Metropolis Jungle Explorers Jungle Halftrack Mission set. It contains 2 mini figures, and 378 items. It is an awesome value for a lego set with that many items, and I like that it could maintain his artistic juices flowing.
Candy little Beck is our helper. All the time has been. Each time Bubba is in his workshop, Beck is true there by his aspect wanting to assist, and be a “employee” like Daddy. A couple of years in the past we acquired him a toy software set from a yard sale, that he nonetheless performs with to today. This 12 months, nevertheless, we’re getting our little handyman his very personal Hyper Robust 102-Piece All Objective Software Set that comes with its very personal fold out case! REAL instruments! He’s going to move out from pleasure. The case is nice, so he can simply see and maintain observe of every little thing. Now…let’s simply hope he does not put a gap in my wood flooring or one thing…
Additionally on his checklist, we listed a number of of Walmart’s nice choice of board video games. One thing Beck actually enjoys doing with the household. The costs are nice, so would possibly as nicely choose up just a few! Beck is without doubt one of the ones who really performs with the toys we stored, so we additionally listed this superior Air Hogs Supernova hovercraft, the Zoom Tubes Automobile Trax , and these cute little Fingerling dinosaurs. I used to be actually impressed with what number of nice toy choices there have been for little boys (the toughest ones to buy, in my view!).
For Priya’s large present this 12 months, we determined to get her a motorcycle as nicely. She is using Hutch’s hand-me-down boy bike (which was a hand-me-down from a neighbor to start with!). She’s an athletic little chica so we’re tremendous excited for her to have the Mongoose 20″ Woman’s Byte Bike.
It is sturdy (Bubba test-drove it within the retailer, ha!), and tremendous cute which is at all times a plus. I’ll say although…go bike purchasing at Walmart with a buddy. There have been so many to select from, I wanted all of Bubba’s mind energy to assist me determine!
On her checklist we additionally put what she begs for for each Christmas and birthday…an “American Woman Doll”. Little does she know that Walmart’s doll line referred to as My Life As is just not solely similar to the American Woman line, however is SO MUCH MORE inexpensive! She has two of their dolls already, and my mother is getting her a 3rd for Christmas. Their doll line has so many outfits, equipment, animals, vehicles, you title it. In case your ladies are something like mine, contemplate the Ice Skater Doll and Loft Mattress Set, and Distant Management Jeep, SO STINKING CUTE!
This lady of ours loves to speak and sing identical to Daivy does! So we thought she would love this enjoyable Fancy Nancy microphone that Walmart has. With it, Mory can sing alongside to built-in music and use it is AUX jack to plug in to any audio gadget so she will be able to actually jam out.
Except for that, we nonetheless have not determined what her BIG present will probably be this 12 months. Any concepts for us??
As lots of you already know, two of my absolute favourite issues are Immediate Pot (I take advantage of mine nearly each day) and The Pioneer Girl (she is my finest good friend however simply does not understand it but)…so how may I resist THE MOST ADORABLE Immediate Pot in existence?! Discovered solely at Walmart, It has 12 good built-in applications, constructed with the newest third technology microprocessor know-how, and has a 3-ply inside pot stainless-steel backside. It additionally is available in breezy blossom or classic blossom patterns.
So, sure, I made a decision to get that for myself this 12 months (thanks Santa!). Could not resist! And…let’s simply say we broke all the principles and busted it out early as a result of I needed to make use of it for Thanksgiving. Let’s simply say it gave my candy potatoes the particular little love they wanted ;).
I additionally acquired myself a sweatshirt from Ellen Degeneres’ new attire line referred to as EV1. It is made particularly for Walmart and simply launched this week! Everyone knows I LOVE ME SOME Ellen so I could not resist.
I acquired this cute long-sleeve t-shirt (solely $12!),
these high-waist denims, and these relaxed-fit classic denims (solely $24!)
And this hoodie that I’ve mainly been LIVING in:
These costs?? Ellen, my lady, you are completely talking my language.
Let’s be sincere, enjoyable is that this man’s center title. Which is why we determined dad wanted a cool present too! He determined an arcade recreation for our basement could be the right Christmas present for not solely him, however for your entire household. We nearly DIED once we noticed the Arcade1Up Rampage Machine. Not solely is it ULTRA RETRO which he loves (Good day childhood flashbacks), however as a result of the value is INSANE!! He is additionally tremendous choosy about high quality so he cherished it is basic upright cupboard design, four video games in 1 functionality, authentic art work, and coinless operation system. So sure, that is Bubba’s present…however fortunate for all of us, it will be the present that retains on giving.
Except for private presents, Bubba and I additionally love doing a household present that we will all take pleasure in collectively. This 12 months, we determined to get the brand new Microsoft Xbox One S 1TB Forza Horizon four Bundle to exchange our different one which we’ve got had for over eight years! Although we do not sometimes love utilizing screens so much at house, our opinion modifications absolutely when it is a recreation that promotes bodily actions like working, dancing and even cheerleading for Priya. Which is ideal for this time of 12 months when the children are extra cooped up inside.
We determined to present it to our youngsters a bit early as a result of A) they saved up a lot allowance this 12 months, we needed to reward them, and B) then they’ll take pleasure in it your entire vacation season! Their faces had been priceless…
So there you go! That is our present checklist this 12 months!
We determined to concentrate on one important present per baby (plus a smaller/medium Santa present), and a modest stocking this 12 months. I am unable to wait to see our youngsters enjoying, utilizing their artistic, and getting lively with these presents.
