Christmas Gifts for an 8-Year-Old Girl
Christmas is approaching fast and Christmas sales are happening – it’s time for this grandmother to get organized to take advantage of the early Christmas sales before the stores run out of the popular toys that are on our 8 year old granddaughter’s Christmas wish list. The hottest toy this year is Zhu Zhu, a life like hamster and his house, wheel, and more. Look at Kaitlin’s wish list for Zhu Zhu and more of the hottest toys on her Christmas wish list. I hope I find some while shopping the Christmas sales!
According to the Retailers Federation, it is expected that there won’t be an inventory surplus this year after the early Christmas sales which means there won’t be a whole lot to choose from as we move closer to Christmas shopping deadline or for the after Christmas sales. That means the best selling toys, the most popular toys, may be in big demand early on causing many children to be disappointed on Christmas morning.
Santa needs your help, so shop early but remember to shop wisely, too. The most popular toys as seen in the many Christmas sales ads are not always the best toys. The “must haves” are mostly caused by the marketing gurus – I still cringe when I think how I was drawn into the Cabbage Patch supply and demand marketing scheme. Ouch!
The Christmas gifts my 8-year-old granddaughter asked for this year are:
- Barbie Glamour Jet Airplane (I found it on sale at Kohls.com)
- Leap Frog Trace and Draw
- DS Games for Girls
- Motorized Scooter
- Motorized Jeep
I wish you success in your Christmas sales strategies, whether it’s just shopping online taking advantage of free shipping…or online and in-store sales using coupons, too!
Remember, don’t get crazy about it, keep your sense of humor and don’t lose your sensibility!
It’s the spirit of giving, not the spirit of getting the best bargain, that is important.
