An Alternative to Christmas Pajamas and Stocking Stuffers

   Christmas is right around the corner and I was so excited when this stroke of genius hit me! Christmas sweatsuits and snacks!!!!!
We are very lucky that my parents get my children and their cousins all matching pj’s:-) I wanted to start some sort of fun immediate family tradition for Christmas but not pajamas.

On one of my many mornings walking Target I noticed some super soft sweatsuits in two different colors, red and gray…I got to thinking how my children love to live in comfy clothes…especially on school breaks:-)

So I decided that our immediate family tradition will be getting comfy clothes with the extra special touch of having it embroidered.  On the front I had their initials done and on the back, World Traveler:-). 

We gave our stockings early too!  We used fun reusable bags that it at Dollar Tree. Instead of little trinkets, I opted to give fun snacks!  That way they have special treats to really kick off their winter break!  I gave them fun snacks that they don’t always get:  yogurt drops, baby puffs, KIND granola bars, A TON OF DIFFERENT squeeze pouches, Nature Valley Granola bars, Lays Potato Chip Variety pack, cheese cracker packs, and then they each got those fun reusable apple juice bottles.

I also included snack bags in case they don’t finish a granola bar or something like that:-)


My kids cannot wait to wear these outfits all throughout winter break and snack on their special treats!

Is this a little different from traditional…yes:-). Equally as much fun though!

For those wanting to know where I got my kids sweat suits monogrammed, the incredible business is Lulu’s Touch Boutique.

Remember…They will love your effort<3

Hi! My name is Dominique and I'm lucky enough to be the wife to my True Love and mother to a little girl and a little boy. I grew up in the Midwest but have loved living in NC, our new home. I'm actually an Industrial Engineer by schooling, but am now a domestic engineer(Stay-at-home-Mom) and feel very blessed to have this job. I have always loved the challenge in making the most of things...whether it's figuring out that a filing cabinet , a $10 piece of countertop and a few scraps of wood can be turned into a desk, that a curtain sheer, some ribbon, and a square piece of fabric can be transformed into an Elsa-like dress, or how to provide an interesting lunch for my little girl who is in a peanut free classroom. I love to figure things out and to create. I hope you enjoy reading my posts. I hope that my posts will inspire you to create. I hope that with my posts you will see that They Will Love Your Effort, whether things turn our perfect or not;-)
