The most recent holiday shopping statistics indicate that many consumers went out whole hog on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which is all well and good, until you check that list twice and discover that you've forgotten a few key items for the junior members of your household.
What's more, great bargains often lead to long lines and huge demand, and cool toys get snapped up faster than you can say "XBox." That's why we keep going back to Santa's Workshop to ask for more awesome toys, and of course, the elves continue to deliver the goods. But take our advice: Don't kick back with your gingerbread latte and assume these deals will last. Once these toys are delivered, Santa is packing his bags for winter break in Cabo San Lucas.
