When my kids were all younger it was so much easier to buy them gifts. Toys are easy to pile in to the cart and the boxes everything came in added another level of funsies for the kids.
With five kids, and three being teens, shopping for the holidays isn’t as easy as it used to be. After talking to a lot of my friends we all seem to be in the same boat not knowing what to get this age range of kids. I don’t want to buy gifts just to fill presents under the tree. I don’t want it to be a bunch of junk they won’t care about in a month. I also want them to provide some kind of enrichment.
I also want to shop easily, get a good deal and not have to stress over bad customer service and all that stuff too.
Too much to ask for? Not if you are buying Gift Smart at Radio Shack.
My husband is a frequent Radio Shack shopper. Every birthday or holiday he always shops for gifts there. He’s gifted electric circuit boards, rc toys, hex bugs, more rc toys and phone accessories. He’s always building crazy stuff and usually needs to frequent Radio Shack for “just a couple parts” and comes back with a whole lot more than that. He is a kid in the candy store when it comes to Radio Shack and it’s one of the few places he really likes to shop. We can find anything for our kids no matter if it’s a selfie stick for our Instagram loving tween girls or foldable headphones for our teen son who likes to listen to music while he does chores…
Or maybe I need some new headphones so I can tune out the kids ALLTHETIME. Not really, because that would be mean… or something 😉
A few words about the bluetooth selfiestick at Radio Shack – it’s awesome. It honestly isn’t something I would have picked up because my arms are freakishly long and I’m a selfie master, but this adds to smartphone picture funsies. My kids LOVE it and I realized quickly its a rad gift for teens and tweens.
Radio Shack makes me happy because I can rely on a good deal with their price match guarantee and high quality products. We happen to have one within walking distance of us but I like that it’s easy to locate a store when we are on the go. If they don’t have what you are looking for in stock then they will ship it to you for free which eliminates the hassle of shopping around.
I mostly like the idea of going into one place to pick up whatever I need and not worry about all the insanity – especially since I’ve procrastinated on gift buying and need to take care of that sooner rather than later.
