Tips for Holiday Shopping with your Child


  • Narrow the ideas about what to purchase before you go – not more than two or three.
  • Decide ahead of time what store(s) you will go to.
  • Be sure your child is not hungry or sleepy at the time you plan to go.
  • Go over with your child whether he or she will make the choice on his or her own or whether you will have final approval.
  • If the trip is successful think about what worked well and celebrate having a nice gift and having fun picking it out.
  • If the trip is unsuccessful, decide what went wrong and how you will improve on it. Then, plan your next trip.
