I honestly can’t, well I kind of can, believe it is already November! Less than 8 shopping weeks left until the big man in red sneaks into our homes and leaves the perfect gifts for the kids!
Christmas is one of my most favourite times of the year. Aside from the snow and that crazy ice storm last year, which I can totally do without, I absolutely love getting together with my very big family and extended family to celebrate the holidays.
I am always excited to see the abundance of great and inspiring gift ideas Shoppers Drug Mart has each year for all those who have made my nice list this year – yes even Reggie somehow sneaks onto that list! This year they have made it even easier with their new gift finder which is available online. They really have become a great place to find fabulous fragrances, gorgeous gifts, yummy treats and the latest toys and electronics. Shoppers Drug Mart has GIFTS MADE EASY for everyone, so easy I need to be careful that I don’t go overboard!
I normally am a very organized shopper when it comes to the holidays. I really have to be organized because I have a LOT of people to shop for. I have my own three children as well as my sister’s five children, Steve’s sister now has a little one and next year tack on yet another little one because my big brother and his wife are expecting their first little peanut in March! That doesn’t include my partner, my evil cat Reggie who most certainly only deserves coal for all the attacking he has done to me year round, the dog, my parents and well, the list goes on!
Of course on the very top of my list are the kids, after all the sparkle in their eye when they open the ‘BEST GIFT EVER’ from Mom or Auntie Aimee is priceless! Thankfully Shoppers Drug Mart’s GIFTS MADE EASY has my back. I have already spotted some great gift ideas for the little’s in my life.
This super cute V-Tech Shake & Move Puppy is something that Bella would absolutely love. She is moving around like a wild woman lately and I think this would keep her entertained for hours with all the sounds and movements!
- Interact with the puppy and develop motor skills by shaking the rattle or pressing the buttons
- 40+ playful songs, melodies, sounds and phrases
- Shake the yellow bone to watch the puppy do tricks and learn the concept of cause and effect
- Puppy runs, stands up, lays down and turns around
- Three shape buttons introduce shapes and colours when pressed
The LeapFrog My Pal Scout would be a perfect gift for my newest nephew Luka. He will be 7 months old come Christmas and I think he would love listening to the music and this is a great toy that will grow with him.
Scout connects to the computer so you can customize the music and personalize the learning with your child’s name and favourite food, animal and colour. Scout comes with 5 pre-loaded songs, or you can select and download your choice of learning tunes and lullabies from an online list of 30 songs. Press a paw to play music, learning songs or games! Parents can connect to the online LeapFrog Learning Path for customized learning insights and ideas to expand the learning.
- First words
- Daily routines
- Early number sense
- Feelings and emotions
My nephew Chase loves all things TMNT! This Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Combat Gear would probably win me the ‘Best Aunt’ award for sure! Maybe I should get one for myself too so I can battle it out against the evil Shredder (a.k.a Uncle Steve) with him when he comes to visit.
Of course Shoppers Drug Mart’s GIFTS MADE EASY doesn’t stop at amazing gifts for the wee ones in our lives. They have amazing gifts for everyone on your shopping list.
Gifts for that Modern Man in your life, everything he needs from fragrance – to keep him smelling irresistible to grooming essentials like the Gillette ProGlide Holiday Pack to get rid of or tame that Movember growth so many of our men are currently starting to sport.
