If you're a parent, you know that finding out what your kids want for Christmas is more challenging than ever these days. Kids have access to all kinds of mediums that tell them what they want... and most of the time, they're not even aware they're being marketed to.

Holiday Shopping In 2023

Social media, YouTube, TikTok... there are so many ways for kids to be exposed to ads highlighting the things they didn't realize they wanted. Some kids even skip over the toys and just want a cell phone... we know that's expensive and most parents would agree that small children can wait on a phone.

So, what are you supposed to do especially if you're like one of us who has three kids under the age of five?

You turn to the pros: Target.

The Timing Couldn't Be More Perfect
