Everyone seems to have a gift guide these days, from Anthropologie to Walmart. But being an eBay girl, I'm kind of partial to the eBay gift guide featuring auction- and buy-it-now holiday treasures, especially when those treasures help me cross off items on Nathan's and the kids' Christmas wishlists.
Here's what I'd love to buy them if dreams really did come true...
Clockwise from top:
- Madison & Lauren ~ iPad Mini
- Olivia ~ Power Wheels Fisher-Price Barbie Jammin' Jeep
- Nathan ~ Samsung 60" 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV
- George ~ Power Wheels Fisher-Price Dune Racer
- Me (hello, I have a list too) ~ Samsung Galaxy S III 32GB in Pebble Blue
Of course, here's what they're more likely to receive...
Clockwise from top:
- Olivia ~ Monopoly Hello Kitty Board Game
- Lauren ~ Converse All Star Chuck Taylor Print
- George ~ LEGO Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter
- Madison ~ TOMS Classic Women's Shoes in Wine (one of her high school colors)
- Nathan ~ Sol Republic Amps HD In-Ear Headphones with remote and mic
To make your holiday shopping even eaiser, your kids can create their own holiday wishlists on eBay. Just visit Your Holiday Gift Shop to help organize all your gift ideas for friends and family.
And get this. eBay has kicked off their Holiday Gift Shop sweepstakes. Anyone who creates a gift list (for herself or for a child) will be entered for a chance to win. Each day eBay will award an item from someone's wishlist. Entrants can also win eBay gift cards.
Talk about a very merry Christmas!
All you have to do is put together an eBay wishlist—easy as dropping change into a Salvation Army bucket.
Let's not forget how much I love buying, selling and wishlisting no matter where I am thanks to the eBay Mobile App. I've used the eBay Mobile App to both buy and sell. (You can read about my experience listing an item here.) In fact, my current Samsung Galaxy S II was purchased while sitting in on one of Nathan's MBA lectures.
I totally sniped that sale.
As of now you only have about 28 shopping days left until Christmas. If your family hasn't wishlisted yet, you better get on it. Santa can only do so much.
