I just got the awesome Best Buy holiday catalog in the mail and we started writing our wish list for the Christmas and Santa. My daughter’s pick for this year is the Barbie Dream House. She finally wants a doll house and I am ecstatic! I have gone through all the gifts from the catalog and found the best ones for each age. Best Buy is really helpful in sorting through all the gifts and separating them by Christmas gift ideas for kids by age.
