It’s bizarre to me that the holidays are once again upon us. Don’t get me wrong, it’s truly my favorite time of the year. I’m just not sure how a whole year has flown by so quickly?! But, I’m totally ready for the best time of the year, because the holidays are my JAM!
I love decorating my house and getting into the Christmas spirit. I also really enjoy buying gifts for the people in my life that I love. Some of my kids may be getting coal in their stocking this year, but I’ll save that for another blog post (haha!)
Beyond the gifts, am all about holiday traditions, and creating fun holiday experiences and memories to remember for many years to come.
Three Fun Holiday Traditions to Start Now
There are some fun new holiday traditions that I’m loving right now and hope to be able to continue for many years to come:
- Hosting a holiday cookie exchange party – This is such a fun tradition that you can share with friends and family. I’ve hosted a few holiday cookie exchange parties in the past and they’ve always been a fun time filled with laughs. How it works is: Everyone you invite to the cookie exchange brings their own special cookies made from scratch. Then, all of the guests sample each other’s cookies and vote on the best cookies of the night! If you’re feeling extra ambitious, you can even make a cute recipe book with all of your guests’ cookie recipes! The recipe book will surely be something to treasure for years to come. At the end of the night each guest takes home cookies from each other…yum!
- Christmas pajamas – This is a non-negotiable tradition for me. I love getting adorable matching holiday pajamas for my little boys, and sometimes even for the whole family. Last Christmas we all opened our gifts on Christmas morning in matching red plaid pajamas! It was the cutest, and I truly treasure those memories.
- Ugly Christmas sweaters – I love this tradition idea of gifting ugly Christmas sweaters to your family. I recently found the most awesome ugly Christmas sweaters at Bealls Florida.
They have a wide range of Christmas and holiday gifts, and lots of ugly Christmas sweaters and outfits. Bealls truly has holiday gifts for the whole family! It’s basically a one-stop-shop for gifts for everyone on your list this year.
I decided to buy the most amazing Christmas sweater for my sister. It has Santa riding a unicorn on the front…and (get ready for the best news ever!) IT LIGHTS UP!! Yes, the sweater has a light switch on the inside. This is basically the best Christmas gift ever. Am I right, or am I right?! Even better, Bealls offers FREE gift wrap! It’s a busy mom’s dream come true.
Be sure to stop by Bealls this holiday season to stock up on everything you need for your family, and to pick out your very own ugly Christmas sweater! Keep up with Bealls on social for the latest updates on what’s available: Instagram Facebook Twitter
I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season filled with amazing memories and fun holiday traditions!
