Lulu’s Holiday Gift Guide 2017 – The Kids, Tween, College and Teacher Version

When I was 7 or 8, all I wanted for Hanukkah was “The Green Machine”. I hate that they advertised it for “Guys 8 9 10 years old who really know how to ride”. Ummm I knew how to ride and I was not born with a penis. Fully offended Marx Toys. Remember it?


Well I got that Green Machine and my parents couldn’t pull me off it (and yes I was the only girl in the neighborhood with that big wheel). Fast forward 30+ years later and the ride ons have replaced my favorite Green Machine. Wait until you see them! This year I tried to pull together a slew of items that the kids, teens, college students and teacher’s will love. This years holiday treat  is anything purchased in the Lulu Store $10 off anything over $100, $20 off anything $200, $30 off anything $300, etc. 

*Please note ALL ITEMS THAT ARE PERSONALIZED AND/OR CUSTOMIZED must be ordered by end of day TUESDAY NOVEMBER 21st  in order to get in time for holiday! (yes THIS TUESDAY!)
