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.

Below is an example set of gifts from BIG W using this system. These items combined cost about $100
- 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
