Have no fear, IndigoKids is here! 🙂
I’ve shopped at Indigo a lot over the past few years. Their selection of gifts and books – all in one convenient location – is really hard to beat! I usually gravitate to their wide array of Melissa and Doug toys for my kids, but when I visited IndigoKids a few weeks ago, it was to pick out a birthday gift for someone else… my nephew whose sixth birthday was approaching. Cars 2 is his favourite movie at the moment, so with that in mind, off I went to find just the right gift.
For me, visiting Indigo is like a mini-vacation. There’s Starbucks, great shopping, free gift-wrapping… what more could a girl ask for? When I arrived, I headed straight for the toy section, where I was delighted to find Cars-themed Lego on sale for 20% off – score! I chose Lightning McQueen and Mater Lego sets, but couldn’t find anything with Finn McMissile (his favourite character), so I went to check out some Cars books for him. With the help of a very accommodating staff member, I found a few leveled readers appropriate for his age, and ended up getting a few for my daughter, too! (She loves Fancy Nancy!) I am a firm believer in always having an activity book in the car to keep kids occupied in a pinch, so when I spied some great puzzle and maze books on the sale table, I couldn’t resist.
Before I left, I realized that my little guy was left out (doesn’t the youngest always get the shaft? LOL), so I chose a wonderful dump truck for him, which he absolutely loves!
As I approached the checkout, I remembered I had my Plum Rewards card, which gives me points towards free merchandise every time I shop at Indigo. (I love getting free stuff, don’t you?) I was also relishing the idea of not having to wrap the presents myself. One more thing to strike off my to-do list… ahhh, I felt lighter already!
Salvina was very helpful and not only rang up my purchases, but escorted me to the gift-wrapping area and did a fantastic job making my parcels look pretty.
The entire process was not only painless… it was actually fun! Why can’t every store offer their customers this perfect mix of merchandise, complimentary services and amazing customer care?
My nephew loved his birthday presents and couldn’t wait to put together his new Cars Lego. The books were a hit, too… Cars and the Incredibles make reading very cool!
The next time you are tasked with buying a child’s birthday gift, do yourself a favour and go to IndigoKids. It’s fast, easy and painless. You’ll be done with plenty of time left to relax and enjoy a coffee.
