Sure, you could stand in line to get your kid a hatchimal (or the 2017 equivalent) or you could think outside the box and go for something unique. Here are some of my favorite Christmas gifts of all time and where to buy them.
Before we get started, let me point out that I choose one large gift and then 3 smaller gifts and stockings. That’s what my children get. Sometimes they get one large group gift and smaller gifts for under the tree. The things I’m suggesting are in the one large gift range. If you’re going to spend $100 on your kid, let’s do it all at once not one shopkin at a time!
