Holiday Shopping Guide

With the Mets not doing any shopping, it doesn’t stop us from having to do any Christmas shopping this year for our kids. I though I would share with you some of the items on our list which might help you if you’re struggling with making yours. If you’re looking at this and wondering “why all the baseball?”, keep in mind my son is a toddler who loves baseball.  Without further ado, here are our suggestions:

  1. Little Tykes Tee Ball Set
  2. Thomas the Train Table
  3. Sesame Street Racers
  4. Crayola Easel
  5. Melissa and Doug Piano
  6. Mets Potato Head
  7. Knee Hockey Set
  8. Mets Train
  9. Mr. Met book
  10. Boynton Books 
  11. Inflatable Tackle Dummy
  12. Play-Doh
  13. Duplo/Lego
  14. Inflatable Soccer Net and Ball
  15. Learning Journey Puzzles 

Overall, I realize some of these are higher-priced items (which is why we don’t have all of these) and that may turn some of you away. However, they’re not all exclusive to the websites I’ve linked. At the time of posting these are the best places to get them but you may find them cheaper elsewhere or applicable for a Raise coupon discount by the time you see this.

My next best suggestion for price-conscious shopping for your kids this year is to look ahead. For example, my son’s Christmas give for this year was purchased during Black Friday last year. I can’t tell you what it is just in case he’s reading this blog (he may be young but he’s smart!). 

I can also suggest looking for smaller items and books at places like T.J. Maxx, which is where my family has purchased many books. Keep in mind, you know your child much better than I do. You know their wants and needs more. 

Lastly and most important, at this age, your kids still like playing with the boxes. Hint, put as much together before as you can. The most important thing this Christmas is getting together for the holiday and celebrating. 

Also, please remember while you’re shopping, pick up a toy, no matter how small and donate it.
