Here Comes Santa Claus


Don't Try This at Home is having a fun Holiday Shopping Carnival that should help each of us knock out some Christmas shopping for those hard-to-buy-for people on our lists. Or, it will help us find things to add to our own wish lists!!

(Note to friends and family: play dumb when you see this stuff again, in say, 6 weeks or so. Or, you could keep the surprise and stop reading. But I know none of you will do that because you are all so stinkin' nosy.)

I love great bath products, but only really great ones. I mentioned this product in a post last week. It is a great idea for any bath junkie on your list. It smells great, and the one that I have is in a plastic bottle that would transport or ship easily.

These tumblers make a great gift for anyone on your list. You can monogram them with a team logo, family name and lots of other fun ideas. They don't sweat and are dishwasher safe. I like these for the guys on my list. Plus, it looks like they are having a $.01 shipping sale!!

Racko is our family's all time favorite game. It is tons of fun for all ages over 8. We are talking serious competition. Each game is over in about 10 minutes, though!! (Our family tournaments can take hours.)

This book is a beautiful gift to give. It would make a great coffee table book or a book to spend some time looking through. It is filled with modern day pictures of the places where Jesus spent time while on earth.

These notebooks would be terrific gifts for any moms on your list. To-do lists, Grocery/Meal planning lists, babysitter information and permission slips...wonderful stocking stuffers!!

This journal is the perfect gift for girls age 8 and up. My daughter received one last year and spent DAYS filling it out. She asked for another one so she can do it again!

I must say, even though The King has put a ban on all things Webkinz, the Reindeer is pretty cute.

I think this book would be a great gift for my mother-in-law, or, you know, me.

This is all that The Princess wants. (I must tell you, that it frightens me a bit. The cost and the product.) Oh, she also wants this--in lime green, which seems much more reasonable. I am thinking that she should want this. How fun would that be? For her, of course. Never for her parents. That would just be wrong.
Thanks, Shannon, for passing along the idea!

I hope these ideas have been helpful. I can't wait to read all of your suggestions! I think I am getting into the Christmas Shopping Spirit!!

I LOVE Racko! We have it in the camper and at home. It is such a great game, and helps younger kids learn too, so double bonus. Great list, thanks for the tips.
