Are some people on your gift list hard to buy for? I know with my 7 nieces and nephews, I sometimes struggle with what to get them and what the most popular and most wanted toys are.
Thanks to The Toy Insider, I have some fantastic ideas for your gift giving this holiday season. Sometimes, it just takes a little inspiration, so I hope this helps you.
I was given the opportunity to attend The Toy Insider’s Holiday of Play event where I learned about the best toys for Holiday 2020 gift giving. I was able to chat with brands, see live demonstrations of the toys and more.
After that event, I was sent some of the top toys for this Holiday season and I can’t wait to share them with you!!
