Checking Our List #15: CSN Stores $75 Gift Certificate {Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, kathyluman!}

When I arrived to pick up Big Sister E from her first day of preschool this year, I walked the row of kids' backpacks until I found her adorable monkey backpack and brought it into the classroom with me. As she excitedly came over, so did one of her classmates, although I couldn't figure out why he kept pointing and reaching for the backpack.

Explaining that this was Big Sister E's backpack and asking if he liked monkeys or had a bag with a monkey on it as well, he finally seemed to shake his head at me before turning and walking away. Confused, I took my happy daughter home and proceeded to forget all about it.

Until a day or two later when I arrived to find his mom helping him place the exact same backpack on at the end of the day while he stood there giving me a pointed look. Oh, okay. Now I get it! It is an adorably cute backpack, after all.

And when it comes to finding great items for kids like this Beatrix Little Kid Backpack, there isn't a better place to look than the all-encompassing CSN.com and their 200+ sites. In fact their baby & kids category brings up thousands upon thousands of options in collections such as baby gear, children's furniture and decor and toys.

With over 12,000 toys alone, it's actually hard to imagine that there is a child's holiday wish list that couldn't be fulfilled by shopping with CSN Stores. I have no doubt that Big Sister E and Little Sister B would both be really, really excited to find something like this waiting for them on Christmas morning:

Of course a trampoline might be a little covered in snow in our neck of the woods at Christmastime, but I'm sure I could find a way to get them out there to burn off some energy!

Or, for something a little easier to wrap, I'd love to sit back and see what their imaginations could come up with to build with a set of giant blocks!

But as easy as CSN Stores makes it to find gifts that my kids would love, I can't forget about my husband either. I have no doubt that I would earn some major brownie points if I managed to have something like this waiting for him with a red bow right on top:
Actually, I might just have to add a massage chair to my list as well. Are you listening Santa?

In an effort to help us all have stress-free holidays, CSN Stores has also put together their Ultimate Gift Finder that is filled with inspirations based on personality. Whether you're shopping for an outdoor enthusiast, seasoned chef or fashion icon, they'll have plenty of suggestions that are sure to please. There is even a Top 100 Gifts Under $100 section so that you can find great ideas at even greater prices.

Ready to go shopping? With convenient browsing, a huge selection, a friendly service team and consistent low prices (most items come with free shipping, too!) one stop at CSN Stores and holiday shopping for your family and friends could be taken care of all at once.

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will be able to cross off at least one more gift from their list (and maybe have a little left over to buy something for themselves?) because...

One lucky person will win a $75 gift certificate to CSN Stores!

To enter to win: Visit CSN Stores and tell me which of their vast selection of items you might purchase with this gift certificate.
