I love Christmas shopping. However, I didn’t want to blow the budget like I did last year, so this time I took a list with me. Off I went, focused on getting as many names as possible crossed off – with one small person, a 3 year old top of the list.
What did Bubba want from Nonna? It would appear the list wasn’t too extensive this year. So here goes …
- 1 big lollypop (still looking for one)
- 1 pair of togs – $16.00 from The Warehouse
- 1 beach bag – $34.90 from Country Road
- 1 kicker board so I can become a really good swimmer $6.99 from The Warehouse
Ok, so 3 out of 4 was a great start. I like the fact I’m also going practical this year. No toys or dolls in sight and she already has enough books to become her own lending library.
Of course the hardest thing about shopping for others, is the temptation to shop for one-self. This is when I have to admit I did buy a black dress from Glassons for $49.00 and a hat from Max which was $39.00. I needed the hat, but perhaps not another black dress!
There is no time like Christmas to treat yourself. Just ask me.
