Kohl's Holiday Gift Guide & $50 Gift Card Giveaway



This past weekend we went shopping. Yes, we even braved two stores during Black Friday! Kohl's department store was our first stop. Kohl's ranks high on my list of favorite stores partly because it based in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. Max Kohl opened his first department store in 1962 in Brookfield, Wisconsin (the Kohl family operated grocery stores before the department stores). Kohl's is now one of the largest discount department store chains in the United States, operating 1,059 stores in 49 states.

However the main reason I love Kohl's is because I can find quality merchandise at reasonable prices for everyone in the family all in one store. We shop there for clothes, shoes and for items for our home. We even registered at Kohl's before our wedding. This weekend we took advantage of the great holiday sales and purchased Christmas dress clothes for both of my children, a king-size sheet set, a rug for my kitchen, a new coat for myself, and some clothes for my husband.

Kohls.com is the perfect place to shop during the holiday season with numerous gift options available. In fact, they even have a handy Holiday Gift Guide so that customers can view popular gifts and top picks in several price ranges. I recently browsed through some of the featured items and picked a few favorites:

For kids:
Kohl's Cares for Kids® "If You Give a Cat a Cupcake" Book ($5) - this book by best-selling author Laura Numeroff is a bargain at $5. Plus 100% of the profit from Kohl's Cares for Kids products go directly to support children’s health and education initiatives. A win-win situation all around and I applaud Kohl's for supporting the nation's youth!

While this isn't on their gift guide, like I said before I always buy my kids' Holiday clothes from Kohl's. In the store they have a huge selection of gorgeous dresses and I bought a cute sweater vest outfit for my son. Kohl's also offers a surprisingly large selection of TOYS and GAMES.

For teens:
Mudd® Fringe Scarf ($17.00) - This multi-color funky scarf would make a cool gift for a teen girl.
Candie's® Pleated Lapel Coat ($49.99) - I LOVE this red, swingy coat
Source Striped Shirt ($19.00) - Several great looking dressy shirts available at Kohl's, perfect for guys.

For Her/Him:
axcess Geometric Fleece Pajama Set for her ($19.99) - I'm all for warm and cozy!
Relic® Regina Faux-Leather Shoulder Bag ($22.00) - This looks like a cute, small and functional bag and it comes in three colors.
Croft & Barrow® 1/4-Zip Microfleece Sweatshirt for him ($12.99) - My husband would live in Microfleece if he could get away with it!

And, someday, if wishes come true, I hope to receive one of these:
KitchenAid® Artisan™ 5-qt. Stand Mixer ($299.99) - A girl can dream! :)

Today Kohl's began their 25 DEALS OF CHRISTMAS. I'm looking forward to checking out their newest deal everyday.

Fun! I loved Kohl's for maternity clothes (not technically maternity clothes - just long inexpensive shirts). I'm giving a lot of books as gifts this year to the kids in our extended family.

Wow, that is a big gift guide. My son has and loves the crayola telescoping holder with 150 crayons.

I got my 3-year-old and 6-year-old matching princess tents. They sometimes get annoyed with the other one and I can never tell them both to go to their rooms to cool off since they share a room, so I thought it would be nice for them to each have their own space to go to.
