3. Barbie Photo Fashion Doll – my daughter has been infatuated with being able to combine her love for photography with her love of playing with dolls (& finally getting to have her own digital camera!) Retails for $49.99, but found it for under $40 on Amazon right now.

4. American Girl matching dress for girls & doll – for a gift your girls can actually use for holiday pics beyond Christmas!

5. Build a Bear – make your favorite characters and new holiday-themed animals.

For the Kitchen:

-Get it for $199 from Walmart now OR
-Get it for $199 from Target on Black Friday

2. Black & Decker Single Serve Coffee Maker – a great option for making your morning Joe on the go for under $30!

Things to keep in mind no-matter who you’re shopping for:
-This is a great time to buy electronics (Best buy has computers for $187 on Black Friday…otherwise wait until spring)
-Fall items go on clearance since we move to Christmas so quickly, so get discounts on fall-colored bakeware and storage items especially
-Buy Fall candy for holiday baking
-Look for Holiday gift cards (especially from restaurants) that will usually give you 20% back in extra bonus cards!
-Order personalized Christmas cards now for the best price

But I’ve saved my best tip for this season’s holiday shopping for last: Get a (virtual) personal assistant!
