So, what better time than now to update my fun family Christmas ideas while also adding some inspirational Christmas gift ideas for family and friends, far and near!

One of my favorite activities to do in the winter is make crafts with my kids. This year, we decided to do a craft using mason jars.
We loved this idea so much that I thought it would be great if other parents could get some fun ideas for making ornaments and decorations out of them too! This post offers some creative ways you can use mason jars to decorate your home for Christmas.
DIY CHRISTMAS GOURMET GIFT BASKET
I never thought I would be the type of person to create a Gourmet Christmas Gift Basket for my family and friends. However, as I started planning my holiday gift-giving strategy this year, it dawned on me that some people might appreciate it if I created them something personalized and thoughtful.
I was thinking of making savory ones with artisan breads and cured meats, sweet ones with fruit jams and chocolate dipped strawberries, and decadent ones that included all sorts of candies. With this delicious selection there is sure to be something for every taste bud.
This post is full of really fun Christmas stocking ideas that are great for those little stocking stuffer gifts. From knitted to Disney, to personalized stockings, we have the best selection.
Hang them on your mantel for extra holiday cheer. Don’t have a mantel, no problem, use a stocking holder floor stand which you can place anywhere in the home that you desire.

Mason jars are the perfect gift for anyone, but they are particularly great when it comes to Christmas. Not only are they pretty to look at, but they’re really inexpensive and easy to make!
All you need is a mason jar (which can be reused), some ribbon or twine if you want an extra touch of Christmas cheer, and holiday-themed items like peppermint candies or cinnamon sticks.
Fill it up with goodies, close the lid tightly so none of the treats escape when you shake them up for your loved ones and – voila! You have a DIY Christmas gift that will put a smile on their face every time it gets opened.

Christmas time is a special time of year. It’s a time when families come together, share stories, and give gifts. It’s also the season to remember those who are far from home during this holiday season with family and friends.
A great way to do that is by giving gifts they will use every day! Here are some ideas for things you could get your college student in order to make them feel a little less homesick.

But the most important thing is that it’s something she’ll love. Don’t forget to keep in with her style. Here are some ideas that will be perfect for your little lady this holiday season.
OUCH! These are the hottest Christmas gifts for kids. Santa will love leaving these cool gifts under the tree. I’m sure we all remember our first Christmas. Growing up, I loved waking up to a pile of new toys and clothes under the tree. Don’t all kids (and adults…hehe).
The secret Santa party and gift exchange at our house the night before Christmas is exciting and loads of fun. We love to guess what the gift is and who gave it to us. This year we have some very special secret Santa gift ideas especially for you. Don’t miss out, check them out today!
Christmas Eve is always such an exciting time for kids and adults alike because you don’t know what will be under your tree when you open it up Christmas morning.
With so many wonderful new toys available on the market today, it can be a bit overwhelming. We’re here to make it easier for you, and to help you narrow down your choices when looking for the best Christmas toys for your kids.
One year, I thought it would be a great idea to start a little Christmas tradition in my family. Every year, a few days before Christmas, we would go out and buy a new craft kit for the kids to do when they got home from school that day.
Then we would get them tp wrap up their projects and give them as gifts to one another. For example, one year we bought an Origami set with paper you could color yourself, so each person had their own colors of paper.
Another time we made beautiful necklaces with beads and stringing wire from the Dollar Store. With a little bit of imagination and a few craft kits, the family can have so much fun being creative together while making awesome Christmas gifts.
