Christmas Shopping

A few days ago, I started to panic as I saw a lot of people writing that they had almost finished their Christmas shopping whereas I had barely started! That night, I purchased a Mega Bloks Steer Me Steve on Amazon and a Sing & Giggle Mickey and felt a bit calmer. I could officially say that I'd started my shopping. 

Chris had the day off yesterday so we decided to get some bits in. 

Mickey Mouse Remote Controlled Car - £9.99, Mickey & Friends Train - £14.99, Mickey Mouse plate - 99p all from B&M Bargains

C is obsessed with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. We watch at least three episodes a day. B&M Bargains, I find, in the best place to find Mickey Mouse toys. We purchased these for him as I know he'll love them. 

Mickey & Friends wrapping paper - £1 each (Poundworld), Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Advent Calendar - £2 (Matalan), Santa Plate & Cup - £6 (Matalan)

I had seen this wrapping paper before so I knew I needed to get some in just in case I left it too late and couldn't find any anywhere! I said to my mum yesterday that I planned on getting C an advent calendar this year and just struck lucky by noticing this one. The Santa Plate & Cup was another item that I saw a while back. I want to have a tradition of leaving Santa's treats and milk out and this was so cute that I just had to buy it. 

I had heard that Sainsburys were having a 50% off sale on their toys. I suggested to Chris that we should pop in to have a nosey and we ended up grabbing a basket. The offers were just too good to pass up.

Stacking Fish - £2.49, Spinning Top - £2.49, Felix the Frog - £4.99, First Rescue wooden vehicles - £2.49 each, Little bath swimmers - £1.00 each, Wooden learning books - 2 for £3 

Fantastic bargains! Altogether the total should have come to £36 but we got everything for £20! I'm so pleased especially with the wooden toys. The sale is on instores until Tuesday. 

Had to buy bits for us too! 

Check out our cool new retro canvases! 2 for £4 in B&M Bargains. 

Have you made a dent into your Christmas shopping yet? Have you come across any great toy deals? 
Let me know!

  1. We've almost finished our Christmas shopping. For the first year ever I'm actually organised! Sam won't let me buy any more presents for Dex. We only have three for his Christmas presents :( but he says he has plenty already. I didn't have a good childhood so I think I over compensate with Dex. His birthday is only a few weeks before Christmas too and we have three presents for that also. Basically, in a nutshell, I want to go mad with buying more presents and Sam is reining me in! Boooo!

  2. You got some great bargains. I love the plate and mug for santa! I am not organised at all, lol. I have 3 young boys so I really better start shopping soon. Hope you have a great first Christmas with your little boy x

  7. Wow you've done really well!
    I had all good intentions of being finished by now in the hope of not having to think about Christmas whilst in a newborn haze - however my finances had a different idea so it's all pie in the sky and ideas for now!

  8. Well done. I haven't started Xmas shopping yet. And got to start planning a December birthday party for my son yet. Been waiting to see how he is doing with his chemotherapy first. So I will be very busy. Hopping by via #MMWBH
