This holiday season I’m shopping for all of my girls at one of my favorite stores, Target! This holiday season Target will inspire and help moms to uncover what their kids are coveting for Christmas through online resources and helpful hints from the Target Kids’ Gift Detective.
This year Target released their kids’ catalog which will provide gift inspiration and savings on the season’s must-have items. Target.com/KidsGifts is a go-to source for browsing and shopping for thousands of gifts! Using Target Kids’ Gift Detective tips for a Covert Christmas Mission we went shopping for some of the hottest gifts this season!
My husband and I both went shopping for our girls so together we disguised the items we put in our cart. TIP: When you arrive at the store, line your cart with “undesirables” (like jumbo packs of frozen Brussels sprouts or books about manners) so your kids can’t see the real gems hidden inside. You can also swing by the container aisle to convert your cart into a covert shopping storage machine. Just place one big, closeable bin into the basket and add their wish list items to the bin while you wheel through the aisles.
I love the idea of hiding presents right under their little noses. Using some high end custom wrapping paper with our family photos I wanted to create something I could hang right on my walls. Since the festive paper has family photos on it, it easily lends itself to being hung on the wall.
That’s exactly what I did! I easily attached a chain, you could use ribbon or even use small nails to attach to the wall.
Their presents will hang right under their noses and they will look great too! A little Christmas decor doing double duty as a the ultimate Christmas presents!
- Kids’ Gift Detective Tip 1: If you are giving a smaller gift such as the Beats Solo On-Ear Headphones, try wrapping it in a large box to disguise it and with something heavy inside to weigh it down. Or wrap an obvious shaped item in the same package to really throw kids off the trail. Place a basketball on top of a boxed gift and wrap both together – the box will look like the basketball packaging until the wrapping comes off.
- Kids’ Gift Detective Tip 2: Often times on Christmas morning, there’s one big gift that kids are longing for. To build up the excitement for opening “the big gift,” give smaller accessory items that accompany the big gift, creating a scavenger hunt that leaves the presence of the big gift in doubt until the moment it comes into view. For example, if the big gift item you’re giving your daughter is a Barbie Dream House, give her a new Barbie, a couple of Barbie outfits and place a note within one of the smaller gifts that leads her to where the Barbie Dream House is hidden.
