Holiday Shopping made Easy With Sears! #SearsBabysRoom

'Tis the month of Christmas! Are you done all your holiday shopping yet? I'm not! How do you do most of your shopping for Christmas? In stores? Online? A combination of both? I do a little bit in the stores, but with two little ones and freezing cold Alberta temperatures...I do the majority of my shopping online! I'm pretty sure the lady at the post office thinks I have a shopping addiction, as every time I go there it seems I have a few packages. But it's not all me, I swear!

I have been shopping at Sears online for years. Everything from furnishing our new home to baby items for when Braden was a baby, to his first "Santa"present (shhh!), and now it's Ethan's turn. I was given a gift card from Sears to do a little bit of online shopping for the holidays! Since I'm done my shopping for Braden, I thought I would turn to my new little guy and see what Sears has to offer him. I often get caught in thinking my new little babe doesn't need anything because he has tons of hand-me-downs from his big brother...but that's not fair! So this is what I chose for Ethan:
The snowflake sleeper in blue! Its cute, cozy, and most important - has a zipper! Braden was in 6 month clothing in the summer, so I guess Ethan won't be using all his hand-me-downs! It's really easy to online shop with Sears. The only issue and recommendation I have for shopping for clothes, is that there isn't a sizing guide on the product page for their baby clothes. I found it here as Sears doesn't use the "typical" sizing numbers on their baby clothes. They size in pounds vs. months. Regardless, I have always loved their baby clothes! It's super easy to order online:
Then you have the option for it to be shipped to you or to pick up at a Sears store, I chose pick up.

So...back to toys! Sears has an amazing feature on their website called the Toy Finder. You just pick the child's gender, age, and your budget if you wish, et voila! A plethora of toys to choose from. Sears recommended these toys for Braden this year. Another great way to find toys for your kids is to have them help. Did you know that this year is the 60th year for the Sears Wish Book? I love the wish book! Do you remember flipping through the Wish Book as a kid and dog earring the pages? I do! Now they have an app for it too. I had fun letting Braden browse through the wish book app with me and you can even make your purchases directly from the app. If yours is a little techno geek like my almost 3 year old Braden, you can download the Sears Toy Chest App. It has 3 great games that Braden really loves.

This month, Sears Canada is offering another exciting giveaway for my readers! I was given three toys to choose from and the decision to keep or to give! The toys are:

I decided to keep the Game of Life zAPPed toy because we already have the Game of Life app on our iPad and when Braden (and Ethan) get a little bit older I want to incorporate game night into our family, and in the meantime we love playing games, especially at Christmas, with our families. So, here's how it works!
