Well its that time of year again where we start to compile lists and ask kids what they want from Santa for Christmas. We warn them that Santa is watching them and they need to behave themselves. As parents we need to figure out what is best for our children, what things they want and where and when to start shopping.
Most years I have always been DONE my Christmas shopping by now, but this year I have to admit I have fallen a little behind. Before my girls could talk, I was always on the hunt for toys that I thought they would love, but that would also be educational and well made. The Fisher Price Joy Of Learning Playtime Guide is very helpful for determining this and has come in great for people like my husband who would love to buy Mecano Lego for my 4 year old daughter. I told him that the Loving Family™ Beach Vacation Mobile Home from Fisher Price might be a better choice of a gift for a 4 year old girl.
Another thing to remember is when are you going to go shopping. Now I don’t let the Christmas season get the best of me because I am almost done before the crazy season hits. There is just too much left to chance. I tend to watch sales throughout the year and buy little bits at a time to avoid crowds and a large bill at one shot. This is one way to reduce stress at an already stressful time of the year.It has been suggested that you make a list and check it twice. However, I keep that list handy all year long and try to catch those good deals that we find in summer or other key times. The key to this is patience.
Right now you can also find great deals on fantastic Fisher Price products and toys. Fisher Price has coupons available to you for $5-$15 off different products. Click HERE to get your coupons.

Christmas should be a joyous time of year and I love spending it with my family. By using some of these simple tricks and being ready, I can enjoy the Christmas season, but more importantly…my family.
