BUY CLOTHING AHEAD FOR YOUR CHILDREN! You will thank UltimateMama later as this practice will save you MONEY and TIME. As my loyal followers know, UltimateMama is a huge fan of stocking up now (in January) for next winter season (Dec 2011/Jan-Feb 2012).  One can find the Internet and many retail clothing stores for kids chock full of deals right now. 

Some wonderful deals for girls and boys can be discovered on Rugged Bear’s website!  Gloves, mittens, sweaters, cords, jackets, snowsuits, snow pants, boots, neck gaiters, hats, and more can be found for up to 80% off!

Also, as always, my beloved Hanna Andersson has some terrific steals, including their ever popular “Journey’s End” jacket which is now $40 from $98! Such a great deal I picked up TWO!

Go to the Gap for great deals on a scarf for your little one! UltimateMama bought three last week for under $3 each! With the code: GAPSALE30 one can take an extra 30% off online purchases now.

UltimateMama knows that it is not always easy to select the perfect gifts for children.  Many times a holiday, birthday, or other celebration creeps up and we are scrambling to buy a present at the last minute.  UltimateMama is completely comfortable arriving empty handed or light handed (card only) to kids celebrations as long as she has the gift covered already. 

Here are some of UltimateMama's last minute gift ideas for children:

– Gift certificates to book stores (Borders, Barnes & Noble), clothing stores (The Gap, Gymboree, Old Navy, Children's Place), or department stores (BloomingdalesSaks Fifth AvenueMacys

– Annual or monthly memberships to local museums, the zoo, or gyms for kids

U.S. Savings Bonds

– Cash or check (as they say "cash is king" — make sure to say it is designated for their college savings)

– Contributions to 529 College Savings Plans

– Gift certificate to an arts and craft store to be used to create or paint plastercraft

– Educational toys, games, or puzzles

– Favorite childhood books. UltimateMama loves perusing Caldecott Medal and Honor Books
