Holiday shopping! I can’t help but LOVE it! Nothing makes me happier than seeing those smiles on Christmas Day. I’m a type A gal to a T, so you best believe that 99% of my holiday shopping is complete way before Thanksgiving Day. My goal every year is to have those gifts purchased before Black Friday to guarantee my role of playing Santa goes off without a hitch. Nothing worse than disappointed loved ones on Christmas Day!
However, every year we end up playing hosts to unexpected guests. As much as I love playing hostess and spending time with loved ones, during the holidays it can put you in quite the predicament. There are some families on our shopping list that have always been Amazon gift card people. They live thousands of miles away, so sending a gift card for the family to spend is the easy-peasy, crowd-pleasing choice. Mom & Dad can buy themselves something shiny or scoop up those “must have” toys for the kids on their list.
When these families surprise us with a visit and we have younger kids staying with us, a gift card no longer feels like a very thoughtful option. It would break my heart for those kids to sit there watching all the other kiddos unwrapping toys.
Thanks to Amazon Prime Now, I was able not only to find this season’s hottest toys, I scored free same-day delivery because Prime members can enjoy FREE SAME-DAY DELIVERY OR ONE-DAY SHIPPING in 10,000 cities and towns coast-to-coast! That’s right! All I had to do was hit up Amazon, click a few buttons and my gifts were delivered to me same day, which reduced my holiday stress while I continued to get our house ready to entertain a guest. It really is true: Amazon does help customers deliver smiles to their friends and family this season, transforming them into holiday heroes.

1. L.O.L. Surprise! Pearl Style 2 Unwrapping Toy

To choose from on the Amazon Holiday Toy List, including the L.O.L. Surprise! Biggie Pet Dollmation and L.O.L. Surprise! #Ootd (Outfit of The Day). We recently ordered the L.O.L. Surprise!
