Here are a few ideas for gifts for us shoppers who need just a little help.

I'll include sections for the whole family- I hope you can get a little inspiration here! These may or may not be my actual shopping lists/idea lists. I've left out prices, as they may change from sales or promotions. I'll include any valid discount codes that I know about- which may not be applicable during a sale! Note- these are just ideas, I'm not telling you that you need these things!

Oh, wait, yes they are my actual lists. With a little extra, that is!
