If you wait to shop the sales that often occur between Christmas and New Year’s, you can score some of the best deals on clothes, electronics, and anything else you've patiently had your eye on all year. There are tons of great year-end deals on car seats, which is good news for anyone with a little one on the way, or parents whose kids have outgrown their old ones (or maybe your current seat had an unfortunate run-in with a bout of car sickness or a particularly sticky snack).

Baby gear can be really costly, but unlike other big ticket items you may be eyeing, you absolutely need a reliable car seat that will keep your children safe and comfy. That doesn’t have to mean you pay full price, however, and this year you’ll find deals on everything from Chrissy Teigen’s favorite car seat brand, (I trust what Chrissy trusts), to staples like Graco, and even a Spiderman option, which will be a savior if your strong-willed little one is convinced that car seats are only for "babies".
