My husband and I love to shop Black Friday, even if we don’t buy much. The atmosphere is fun {when else do you get to shop in the middle of the night?!}. We don’t really buy many gifts on Black Friday, though. Our purchases usually involve tools for DIY projects or other items for the home. Then, I like to go back out and shop on Small Business Saturday. On this day, I’m much more likely to buy actual gifts. It’s just more fun to give a unique, local or handmade item at Christmas.

So, if you are planning to catch some big deals at the department stores next weekend, I hope you’ll also take some time to shop local and shop small. I’m tempted to buy several things on this list… that baby hat is ADORABLE and my son would have a blast with the catapult kit. Which items are your favorites?

Fabulous collection! I share lesson plans for the Christmas season on a blog called Advent Idea Box and I'd love to link these ideas for the unit study on "gifts". Fun stuff!
