Filled with beauty and wonder, the holidays are unmatched when it comes to childhood fun! Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, and the New Year, too, — the holidays are the best time of year to be a kid. #BestTimeToBeAKid
When you are a kid the holidays mean:
Yummy Food: baking holiday cookies with mom or grandma is a special kind of treat. It is more than just the delicious cookies it produces. It is a time of fellowship and fun while making something together. Cakes, pies, sweet breads, cookies, muffins and candy are in endless supply. Yum!
Wonderful Entertainment: the holidays are filled with special movies, plays, concerts, and dance recitals to attend. There is no lack of a fun place to be!
Festivity: the glittery lights and sparkle of tinsel create a children’s wonderland. It is so much fun to just take a drive in the evening and see what you can see. Everywhere you look is lit up and the air is filled is joyful music, too.
Pretty wrapped presents: of course, when you think of the holidays you have to think about giving and receiving gifts. Your little ones have been making their wish lists for quite some time, haven’t they! When I was a child we made our lists so early that we almost wore our parents out with reminders and revisions right up to the big day. Of course, we did not realize that Santa needed time to order things and get them there! LOL
Comfy New Clothes: yes, the holidays call for a special new outfit to wear for church or a party. Adorable new clothes and accessories will also be in those packages under the tree. When we were kids we always got new pajamas or a robe to wear on Christmas morning. [I have the pictures to prove it!] We got fuzzy new slippers, too.
This year, I bought party dresses from Gymboree for two of my grand girls for their Christmas gifts (sshhh …don’t tell!) They live on the other side of the country from me so I ordered them in plenty of time to ship. Normally, I would have had Gymboree just send them directly but I wanted to SEE the dresses first to share them with you!
Miss N is receiving this lovely striped party dress and her big sister, Miss I, will get the festive blue dress with the big bow. The quality of this fabric is lovely and they really paid attention to detail with style. I was so pleased and surprised to see buttons up the back instead of a zipper. Classy!
I now have their presents boxed, wrapped and ready to go to the post office in plenty of time for Christmas.
Gymboree is my new “go to” place for kids clothes and accessories. The quality is outstanding. The designs are trendy and cute. The variety is vast. Your kids will love it all!. Oh yes, the pricing is really, really good, too – especially right now during the holiday season. Plus, I was amazed at how quickly my order arrived. They emailed me to say that it was on the road just two days after I placed my order and I had it before 5 days were up. Super fast!
If your little ones aren’t into fancy party dresses, Gymboree has lots of stylish casual clothes, too. Stop by and take a look and be SURE to go look at the accessories, too Their hats, gloves, socks, jewelry, boots and shoes are so cute!
Have a wonderful holiday season!
