A Gift Buying Guide Of The Best Kids Clothing Brands

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I feel rushed to pivot my attention to Christmas and holiday preparations. This was in part due to the holiday decorations my friends and family saw already set up on a walk  the morning after Thanksgiving; Christmas tree after Christmas tree, it seemed like the more we walked, the more holiday decorations we saw adorning each home. And, the more holiday decorations I saw, the more FOMO (fear of missing out) I had. I found myself walking faster and faster homewards. Finally, I launched into a full out sprint, with the intent of ripping open our holiday decoration box and making it rain tinsel on our house. I held back once I finally reached our front door, mostly because I remembered the Christmas decoration box is on a shelf I cannot reach and need my husband to get (he was calmly walking several streets back). Once he finally got home, he was met with my overwhelming enthusiasm (I was removing every turkey decoration in sight) and he told me to wait. He felt this mad dash would take away the enjoyment of transitioning from one holiday to the next. Maybe I should say the same thing to our neighborhood hardware store who has had stockings hanging above the Halloween pumpkins since mid-October. Like turkey dinner, he needed to digest one holiday celebration before moving onto the next. 

However, Black Friday and Cyber Monday do not give you a lot of breathing room. After I was convinced the Christmas holiday decorations can hold until December, I opened my computer to be faced with Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. There was no breathing room afforded there! I sat down and made a plan of attack for this Cyber Monday that I will share with you below. A one-stop-shop at the best online kids clothing store is where you will find me this shopping season. It simplifies things, eliminates how many tabs I have opened on my computer, and lets me make sure I stay on budget. I prefer to purchase gifts my kids need (which often means clothes) and also what I ask for from grandparents too! We let the guy up North bring the fun stuff. Once our Cyber Monday shopping is complete the road is paved for decorating! Watch out neighbors, I will make sure every window is filled with handmade snowflakes, garland, and warm lights.
