Christmas 2014 | 20 Kids Toys & Accessories X'mas Gift Ideas... ON SALE! + {Promo}

Last year I wrote a list on 10 Kids Toys & Accessories Christmas Gift Ideas On SALE for the parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles who weren't able to get their Christmas presents until the last minute. This year, I'm going to give you another list.. but one month in advance so that you have PLENTY of time to prepare, and not get all jittery! I've also included not just 10, but 20 discounted toys and accessories that caught my eye as gift ideas for your kids because as usual, I reckon that if you can get something great at a cheaper price, why not? :)

And oh, don't forget to get your promo codes for more discounts at the end of the post!

This year's list is from Agape Babies and The Sunshine Kids online departmental store. A relatively new concept in Asia, this means that customers can shop between both stores and check-out in 1 shopping cart. So convenient and such a time-saver since I don't have to go to various sites to purchase different items. Also, since they don't have a physical store, they pass on these cost savings to the customers and I see that some of the items sold there are cheaper than those found in brick-and-mortar stores like Takashimaya or Isetan.

We got some items from them for Lil Pumpkin, my friends & their kids as well and was really amazed at how fast they delivered! We ordered late on Friday night, the next morning we received an email that the items were sent out.. and we received them on Saturday evening all packed securely in one box. ZOMGGG! I didn't even realise they work the weekends and was expecting it just a week later haha.

Agape Babies currently carries over 150 premium brands and retails over 3000 products {!!!} in store for mums and bubs. These include baby necessities like diapers & milk formula, playmats, toys, English & Chinese books, bags and even strollers. At The Sunshine kids, they specialise in party dresses from their very own apparel line {going to add a casual line soon}, shoes from Pediped & Shupeas and other kids accessories.

The shops offer free courier delivery to Singapore addresses with S$80 spent and a free gift with every S$120 purchase. Overseas delivery and gift cards are available.

There's really a lot to choose from both stores so I've narrowed my gift ideas list down to the sale sections in Agape Babies and The Sunshine Kids. The kids get a meaningful gift from the parents while the parents get to save money? Win-win situation :) 

1. Thermos Hello Kitty FUNtainer Food Jar 10oz {S$29.90, U.P. S$49.90}
Who can resist kawaii Hello Kitty in Pink?? Nyaaan~! When Lil Pumpkin just started on solids, I often made porridge for her to bring out and eat in similar containers to these. This food jar's leak-proof lid lets you bring hot or cold foods anywhere and with the large mouth opening, kids can eat directly from the container as well as making filling and cleaning super easy. Food is kept hot for up to 5 hours or cold up to 7 hours while remaining condensation-free.

2. Shupeas Baby Shoes 0-24m {S$29.90, S$39.90}

5. Mini Squids Sunglasses for Kids Aged 0-2 Years {S$40.40, S$44.90}
It can be a big tricky finding sunglasses for the smaller kids but eye protection during childhood is critical as eye damage from UV radiation is cumulative and overexposure to sunlight can result in chronic eye disease from an early age.

You have tons of great ideas here. All my boys want this year are video games LOL.

Annie said...

Fantastic list. I'm eyeing the Princess Castle Set for my girls!

Stacy said...

Luckily your post doesn't have a 'point and buy' feature... I'd have clicked on a few things I DON'T need by now. :p

I buy things throughout the year when I see something I like, so am quite prepared!

I told my mom about the Sophie the Giraffe to get for my youngest nephew. He loves chewing on things, and has more teeth to cut!

I have most of my shopping done. I still have to get a few things for my husband.

Ai Sakura said...

Masshole Mommy: Haha which ones are you getting them?

Annie: Oh yeah that looks pretty!

Stacy: Ahhh I need to learn from you :P

Alissa: I really need to be like you! Yup we got the Sophie Giraffe for my friend's kid too. It's such a sweet gift :)
