    I would get my boys anything superhero or angry birds…and with three boys under six, I'm expecting Santa to be very good to them. Pending the elf on the shelf reports to Santa…and I need an elf on the shelf. 🙂

    Ahhhh, if only Jason Wu for Target was out a little earlier! But seriously, I would love to use to get my brother a tv for Christmas. He has had a rough year, and with this gift card and perhaps some coupons from, I could afford to get it for him.

    A Target gift card would be a great way to kick off the Christmas shopping season. I have my eye on a Kindle or a Blu-Ray DVD player.

    I'd get gifts for my in laws. After we buy for our son and parents, the in laws generally get the short end of the stick. An extra $100 would go far in adding to what we can buy for them.

    They have the cutest leather gloves right now in great colors. I would buy a pair for all of my college bffs.

    So many choices. Kitchenware, electronics, toys and more. Hard to decide but I would probably get my twin toddler nephews some new noisy toys. Thanks for the chance.
