That’s right people, there are only FIVE weeks until Christmas! I am simultaneously ecstatic and and terrified. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas and I cannot wait for the holiday season to be fully upon us, however, my A-type personality goes into straight panic at the thought of ALL THINGS that need to get done between now and then.

I’ve made a list, oh yes, my list is very detailed and I have started crossing things off like a boss. We are also leaving for vacation in five days so I’m frantically trying to get as much lined up before we leave because when we return it’ll be  <GASP> December 1st. christmas-list

Whether you’ve started your shopping or not, here is a round up of some of the most desired items that might be under our tree this year for the mini-wheats. If you have a toddler I am certain that you know every episode of Paw Patrol by heart and you’ll want to hit the stores ASAP to pick up some stuff before it’s sold out. Paw Patrol is definitely the *hot* item this year.

Equally as hip and on constant repeat in our house is Peppa Pig. Zoe simply cannot get enough of Miss Peppa and her crew. We swung by Toys R Us yesterday and there is a ton of Peppa stuff on the shelves, we picked up the camper van and some super cute Peppa bath toys.

A lot of people think I’m crazy, but I like to have all my shopping done by the end of November. This minimizes stress and the number of shoppers in the stores and it also ensures that you have the pick of the litter when it comes to the wish lists of your loved one.

Coming up this week: some festive must haves, holiday jammies, my wish list and some Canadian Made goodies. And in the spirit of giving, Old Navy has 35% off your entire order today only, just use the code BIGDEAL at checkout. And they have really stepped up their game this year. I usually get Thomas’ pants at Zara, but check these much less expensive options here and here.

Happy shopping y’all!
