Where Kids Can Holiday Shop for Their Parents in Indy
There’s a sweet kind of shop popping up around the holidays where children can shop for their loved ones. Instead of taking them to Target for Dad and hoping they don’t pick something expensive that he doesn’t need or want, consider one of these area Santa Shops. Children come into the store and select gifts for Mom, Dad, siblings, teachers, grandparents – anyone they need to cross off the shopping list. Many of the shops don’t allow adults but have helpers to assist children with their lists and payment. Gift wrap is usually available, the selection is manageable for the youngest set and the prices are manageable for parents. If store bought isn’t your child’s style check out the DIY Workshop option!
