Since I’m such a huge Christmas lover, I’ve already started on a little project that I need your help on!
I saw an idea on Pinterest several years ago that has just stuck with me, so this year it’s happening at the Donahoo house!
The idea is very simple. Buy 25 children’s Christmas books and wrap each one individually. Starting December 1st, let your kids pick and unwrap one book a day and read it together as a family! Our babies LOVE books (even though they may not always understand what’s going on right now- particularly Lily Ryan!) so I’m excited about starting this tradition this year and carrying it on for years to come!
I’ve currently found 17 books that seem cool. But I need 25 total! So I’m asking for your help!
Do you have a favorite Christmas book? Parents, what books do your kids love? What was your favorite Christmas book as a child? Have any of y’all done this before? What were the hits?!
I’m trying to keep all of the books either centered on baby Jesus, on a classic Christmas story, or on an uplifting story that has a sweet heart to it! I’d LOVE your input! Several friends and family members have already made great suggestions but I still need a few more!
Here’s what we’ve got so far!
I haven’t gotten to read all of these yet (let’s be honest– the first time I read some of them will be when the kids unwrap them) so I don’t know 100% if some of these are even any good! Ha! It’ll still be fun. And this is something we can tweak throughout the years as our babies outgrow some of the more “kiddy” books and are ready for longer/more in depth stories! For now, I’m trying to keep them all somewhat short since attention spans are not always very long around here! 😉
Anyway, PLEASE leave any and all suggestions! I’d love to have this little project wrapped up in the next couple of weeks! 🙂
Thank y’all so so so much for your help! Can’t wait to check out what y’all recommend! And thanks a million for stopping by today. Means so much to me! 🙂 Have a great day! XOXO!
