The MOST Exhaustive Holiday/Birthday Gift Idea LIST for Toddler Boys & Girls!πŸ‘¦πŸ»πŸ‘¦πŸ½πŸ‘§πŸΏπŸ‘§πŸΌπŸŽ„πŸ•ŽπŸŽπŸ’°πŸ“ Happy Shopping!

My just turned 5 year old Shane’s favorite activity this fall was making his birthday and Santa list. Every few days he would say with a big smirk “Moooom you know what tiiiime it is” and hand me a ripped piece of paper and pencil. πŸ‘¦πŸ»πŸ“ Which reminded me, if you know me, you know I love a good EXHAUSTIVE COMPREHENSIVE list so why not share my ideas for the holidays, or birthday, or rain days, or an holiday or for any gift giving reason! There is definitely something for everyone on this list!πŸ‘¦πŸ»πŸ‘¦πŸ½πŸ‘§πŸΏπŸ‘§πŸΌπŸŽ„πŸ•ŽπŸŽπŸ’°πŸ“.

With 4 kids I actually like to start my holiday shopping in October when things are definitely in stock and I don’t have to wrestle with the crowds. Then last year I decided to just do most of my shopping on Amazon because they have the biggest selection, competitive prices and I could do it from the comfort of my pajamas and my coffee as I sit in front of my tv relaxing (watching CNN). β˜•οΈπŸ“Ί Since a lot of these are hot items and are sold out in the stores it’s always a great option knowing you can get them online and delivered through Amazon Prime in a few days or OVERNIGHT! πŸ‘πŸ½ Β Obviously prices vary as does availability of stock in stores but for convenience and ease of organization I’m using Amazon as my list. So without further ado…this is Shane and Skyler’s Xmas/ Hanukkah/ Birthday Lists…good for ages 2+ and mostly appropriate for girls as well! You can click any hyperlinks you see and like and they will add to your Amazon shopping cart. Forgive me for not adding pictures for each link/item/toy. This post is taking SEVERAL HOURS and since I’m still new to wordpress I can’t figure out an easy way to display an image and a link at the same time (goals for 2018). I am only including most pictures but feel free to click each hyperlink to see an actual pic if there is no picture! Sorrrrrrry πŸ™ Also check back every so often because as people suggest toy ideas I will update the bottom of my list with “NEW TO IDEAS ADDITIONS”

There are 2 weeks left till Xmas and less for Hanukkah so if you are like the rest of the world, and procrastinated till the last minute, or you don’t have the time to shop in the stores, or you are too overwhelmed and can’t get your act together, DONT WORRY! I have done all the work for you, just scroll through and see what appeals to your KIDS. πŸ‘¦πŸ»πŸ‘¦πŸ½πŸ‘§πŸΏπŸ‘§πŸΌπŸŽ„πŸ•ŽπŸŽπŸ’°πŸ“ still have plenty of time to amazon prime your items and WRAP THEM! I have broken up the guide by TV SHOW/ TOPIC… This post is a reminder that its GO TIME! No more dragging your feet, get your holiday shopping done NOW!

PAW PATROL:
This season it’s alllllll about Paw Patrol and the pups for my boys and for the toddler age group. Seems like a few times a year they come up with a new theme of pups and vehicles.

Skies the limits with Paw Patrol, there are so many theme and pup options just search Paw Patrol toys and you will have tons of options if you don’t care about the newest themes! 🐢
