Do You X-Mas Shop With Your Baby?

Set of Crayola Fingerpaints, $5.49

Yesterday I did a little Christmas shopping with my 11-month-old. I know it might sound crazy, but it felt kind of weird to be buying presents in front of her. I want them all to be a surprise—especially the ones she gets from Santa.


I think I managed to buy a few things without her noticing—like these Crayola Fingerpaints. But there were some toys she definitely saw, so I feel like they lost their "specialness." The problem is I can't go shopping unless I take her with me.

Do you buy holiday presents from Santa in front of your kids? What age would you do this until?
