What’s the ONE thing that SHOULD be under every tree (but probably won’t be)?

Okay Ladies,

Quick quiz question for you…

What’s the ONE thing that SHOULD be under every tree (but probably won’t be)?

Wait for it….

Yes, it is…


65% of moms admit they have forgotten to purchase batteries for holiday toys and gifts. (Rayovac surveyed moms and found that out.)

I can just hear the whines and complaints from disappointed children begging to test out their new battery-required gadgets and toys.

So to make it easy for us to ensure we’ve got the right batteries under the tree, Rayovac created a Battery Shopping List matching batteries with the season’s top toys.

So don’t be a statistic this year… check the guide, grab some coupons off Facebook and have an extra Merry Christmas!

Isn’t that the truth. All the gadgets and no way to power them. Thanks for the great reminder and the coupons!! :)

This reminds me to make a note of what batteries I need before I wrap presents tonight. Thanks!

Good point – important to keep track while wrapping. :)

I was good, I remembered to get batteries for all the gifts for my grandson that needed them and included them with the gift. My step-son & DIL will be really happy that they don’t have to look for them Christmas morning.
Score one for Grammy Lorie. :-)

Way to go Grammy!! :)

Never has a year passed that we didn’t forget batteries. I think it’s now just a part of the season.
