Our Place to Shop For Christmas

By Katie Rose For Poppy, we grabbed a Pomsies, which is a wearable Pom-Pom cat. It’s so cute and interactive when you press its nose. In fact, Aubrey has also been playing with it and they both love pretending it’s a real cat. We ended up doing a lot of our Christmas shopping at Canadian Tire this year. Their toy selection is one of the best in the city. And, as always, we grabbed a few things for ourselves – this time it was some adorable home décor, which many of you noticed. Now, to wait for the next few weeks until we can see their faces when they open up the rest. I seriously LOVE Christmas. What are some of your little one’s must-have toys this year? Follow #CTChristmas on Instagram to see more of this year’s hottest toys. Thank you Canadian Tire for supporting our family by sponsoring this post.
