Christmas Gift Ideas for Kids

Retro Radio Flyer Red Wagon
Every Kid Should Have a Red Wagon! First item on my Christmas list is a Radio Flyer Red Wagon for my nieces. Madiline (3) can pull Lizzy (1) around for hours in this thing!






Every year I end up racing around last minute doing my Christmas shopping, which makes Christmas more of a chore than a celebration. This year, I am going to start early and get it right. I will I will I will!!!!!!!1951 Embees of Charleston Christmas Ad in Newspaper

It seems that men have had this problem for a long time...according to this 1951 Ad by Embees of Charleston, Seven out of Ten Men wait until the last minute to do their Christmas Shopping! And then, if they follow Embees' advice, they come home with something called "OOmphies", for $2.96 (Free Gift Wrapping!) which are described as a darling little Slidealong Scuff in matching or contrasting colors. (One foot red one foot blue?) Hmmmm. Good Advice?

Well OK, so Slippers for Christmas....could be acceptable if used as the decoy gift for the little blue box from Tiffany's. I think I need to take a poll...Take Poll
