Christmas Shopping at Ikea

There are dangers in getting all of your Christmas shopping done in one morning. First, you’ll hear ridicule from all your male friends who prefer the sport and tradition of rushing around on Christmas Eve. Second, you really won’t be done. There will always be some extra things you’ll just have to get as the clock counts down to the 25th.

To say ‘we’re done’ when it comes to buying gifts for Zacharie would be a lie, but we’ve got the big things out of the way and we did it all in one morning at Ikea.

Here’s what my son will find under the tree this year:

Duktig mini kitchen – the boy loves to cook
Lillabo train set – same gauge as the popular tv show model, way way way cheaper
assorted Titta puppets and hats (not on the website)

Even if your kid’s not in to kitchen stuff, a visit to the children’s section of Ikea is a good idea to check out their revolving tickle trunk of puppets and plush toys. We’ve been buying every puppet we can since Zacharie was born. They don’t last long in the stores, the quality is excellent and they’re really fun to play with. Just now, at 2 1/2 is Zacharie starting to appreciate creating his own character voices for the dozen puppets we’ve picked up.

New in the Ikea play section this year are hats. Brilliant, fun hats. Potted plants, fruit bowls, flowers, jesters, planes, birthday cakes and more. All for just $5, like the puppets.

Even if you have an infant, stock the tickle trunk while you can. And if you’re really on the ball, you can just put them away and save them for their 3rd birthday or Christmas.

    Our son loves puppets – I bought him Bert and Ernie puppets when he was about 3 months old and he has loved them ever since! I love old school toys for kids like puppets. Leaves more to the imagination.
