Y’all might remember this post from several weeks ago where I asked for recommendations of great Christmas books for children! Well, y’all totally came through and helped me round out my collection of 25 for my kids to unwrap one day at a time throughout the month of December!
I am VERY excited about our final collection! Here’s what we ended up with!
// Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree // Song of the Stars // Dream Snow // Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer // Humphrey’s First Christmas // The Best Christmas Story // God Gave Us Christmas // The Christmas Story // The Night Before Christmas // Bear Stays Up for Christmas // The Birth of Jesus // The Little Fir Tree // Christmas in the Manger // Who is Coming to Our House? // The Christmas Baby // Room for a Little One // Corduroy’s Christmas Surprise // The Christmas Star // Snowmen at Christmas // Llama Llama Holiday Drama // Santa’s Favorite Story // An Otis Christmas // Little Blue Truck’s Christmas // The Not Very Merry Pout Pout Fish // Christmas In The Barn //
They are all wrapped and ready to be torn into, one day at a time, by my babies! I wanted to wrap them in some fun, unique paper, so I went on an etsy hunt and found some of the coolest gift wrap by some of the cutest shops!!
This paper from Wrappily is printed on newsprint and comes folded in little sheets. And bonus: each sheet is reversible! The green trees are on the back of the pink trees, and the whimsy carousel looking print is on the back of the small, bright tree paper!
These fun loving bears are from CM Wrap and Ship Supply! This paper came on a roll so it is great for larger gifts!
These lovely mid-century esque patterns are from Norman’s Printery! They come in smaller sheets, so these are best for wrapping small gifts! The patterns are SO much fun though. I especially love the red and black ornament looking pattern!
The folks at Norman’s Printery are SO sweet to offer a 10% discount to the first ten orders placed with them from THIS link! Just use the code HIVEBLOG10 at checkout and they will hook you up! 🙂
These papers are from a shop called Livettes. They come on a roll and are printed to order on kraft paper, so there is a little lead time here, just so you know! Totally worth it though. I love these so much!! This shop also sells very cute stick on wallpaper by the way… I have ideas… 🙂
These pretty papers are from The Paper Pony Co. I ADORE these!!! Especially the horses! How beautiful?! This whole shop is so pretty, and eco friendly!
Well I believe that about wraps it up! ha! I’m a dork. I hope you found a book or some paper (or both!) that inspires you for this Christmas (although I know it’s still early!! I’m not skipping Thanksigiving!!) I cannot tell y’all how excited I am about this project… I’ll give you little updates on how the kids like it once it starts! 🙂
Have a great rest of your day AND DON’T FORGET TO VOTE!! 🙂 It’s a hard-earned privilege we have. And if you’re stressing about the election, look up Isaiah 9:6. It’s a good one 🙂
