The Christmas season is, hands down, my favorite time of year. I love everything about it—the twinkle lights, sugary treats, holiday tunes all day every day and lots of merriment. Once I had kids, I discovered that there’s more to the magic of the season than a perfectly decorated Christmas tree and a holiday-inspired cocktail. But making Christmas special for your little ones doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice everything that you love about the season. Here are ten ways to add style to Christmas with kids.
Elevate those teacher gifts with thoughtful wrapping and adorable printable tags.
Throw a Christmas party for the kids and use it as an excuse to pull out all the stops with festive holiday decor.
Forego the traditional red and green color palette in favor of elegant decor that’s more winter wonderland and less Santa’s workshop.
Keep those cute little mittens off your delicate heirloom ornaments with a felt Christmas tree that the kids can decorate again and again.
Reserve the cheesy Santa wrapping paper for the big man himself, and create your own gift wrap that will make the presents under your tree look too pretty to open—almost.
Swap the cocktail shaker and liquor collection for marshmallows and Santa mugs to create a hot cocoa station that will become the hot spot in your home on cold winter nights.
Create a tablescape that grownups and kids can enjoy together for a holiday feast.
Add a healthy twist to your Christmas brunch with a fruit Christmas tree that’s sure to impress.
Make an elegant keepsake ornament to commemorate baby’s first Christmas.
Put on your coziest Christmas pajamas, and curl up with your littles to watch your favorite Christmas movies and sip hot chocolate—extra whipped cream, please.
However you choose to celebrate Christmas with kids, we hope it’s full of joy! Happy Holidays!
