Christmas Wish List Printable (Want-Need-Wear-Read)

Brought to you by Nuffnang and BIG W

There’s a BIG W close to where my kids go to school. It’s handy having it there because I can duck in before/after I pick up the kids from school to do a spot of Christmas shopping. One thing I’ve learned about Christmas shopping is I have to make lists so I have a general idea of what I’m looking for.

When it comes writing gift lists for kids, a simple system like this works a treat. 

  • Something I want
  • Something I need
  • Something to wear
  • Something to read

This is a fun way for kids to write their own Christmas Wish List.

  • Something I want: Disney Frozen Sister Dolls
  • Something I need: PJ set
  • Something to wear: Frozen T-shirt and pink denim shorts
  • Something to read: Frozen – Essential Guide

I compile Christmas shopping lists through different ways: browsing online, looking through catalogues, and working through ideas I get from the kids (and others). I prefer looking online and then writing out my lists on paper. However, there are many free list apps for smart phones, and BIG W have a printable wish list system, so there are other helpful options.

This year, BIG W has different ways to browse gifts:

BIG W Online: bigw.com.au – browse and buy online

BIG W Catalogues: bigw.com.au/catalogues – browse all the latest catalogues

BIG W Gift Shop: bigwchristmas.com.au – browse and create gift lists in the largest online catalogue

BIG W In store – bigw.com.au – check for local stores online

    I think I’ll be going with the want, need, wear and read idea from now on. I generally do something along those lines but it’ll be good for the kids to see it and be able to write their wish list in that way. Pinned!
