Here are a few other Christmas ideas.

I would love to hear from you.  What item would you enjoy getting the most in this giveaway?  OR What is a favorite tradition you have during the Christmas season?



  1. One Christmas tradition is going out on Christmas Eve and looking at all the lights and decorations around town, then coming back and watching a Christmas movie.
    My favorite item in the giveaway is the Santa picture because 1) I collect Santa stuff and 2) I replace all the artwork in our home with Christmas themed stuff during the holidays.

    • Hi Melissa,

      That is a great tradition and makes such special memories. Your house sounds amazing – all of your santas must make your house feel so cheerful during the holidays. Best wishes in the giveaway and appreciate your taking the time to post a comment. Have a blessed day.

  2. What a wonderful giveaway! Thanks so much! Getting me excited for the holiday season to arrive!!

    • Hi Liz,
      Thanks. I had so much fun putting it together – a little something specifically for Christmas and then things that can be used all year round. Best of luck in the giveaway and thanks so much for the comment. They truly make my day.

  3. I love that Santa! He is just to cute. Great giveaway Debbie. Thanks for the chance to win.
    Sew Crafty Angel

    • Hi Angel, I like that Santa a lot too. It is designed with hanger that pops out of the top of the frame. I’ve never see that before – very cleaver. It’s always nice to hear from you. Debbie

    • Thanks Angel – yeah that Santa is pretty cute whether he is hanging on a wall, propped up on a mantle or hanging out on an easel. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  4. Lisa Allen says

    Not sure which I love the best. However, I love the idea of sharing! That’s one of my favorite things about Christmas (and all holidays! )

    • Hi Lisa, Sharing is one of the best parts of Christmas – it is definitely the time of year when we are invited to think beyond ourselves. Thanks for your sweet comment.

  5. I just can’t believe how organized you are! Getting around to Christmas presents in October. It must be all that fun shopping for the baby! 🙂 They are just so fun to buy for. Hope you are well.


    • Hi Kim, I’m glad you think I’m organized. I think it’s more self protection. I knew I wanted to do something special for one of my readers with a Christmas theme back in early summer so I just started collecting items that were a great price and this is what I came up with. I knew if I waited too much longer I’d get busy with the holiday prep for my own family and it would just be a good intention of my mind – although I will say that I do love that grandson of mine. Thanks for your comment 🙂

  6. krystal pena says

    Thank you for this giveaway looks really cute to have in my home

    • Hi Krystal,
      Isn’t it fun imagining where something new might go in our homes? I wish you the best of luck in the giveaway and so appreciate you leaving a comment.

  7. I like all of the items in the giveaway, especially the Santa. My favorite thing about Christmas is watching the wonder and excitement through a child’s eyes. That’s priceless.

    • Tammy,
      You are so right watching Christmas through a child’s eyes is like watching a miracle unfold. Last year my little grandson was 6 months old and just watching him watch the Christmas lights on the tree was so amazing. Your comment made my day. Thanks for popping over.

  8. Dericka Buckels says

    My favorite item is the citrus juicer. I love whipping up things in the kitchen and i bet this would come in handy for the upcoming Holidays.

    • Hi Dericka,
      Thanks for your comment. The citrus juicer is one of my favorite kitchen tools and the other end can be used to crush spices or mash berries through a fine mesh colander. Oh, yes you could have quite a bit of fun during the holidays with this little gem.

  9. I love all these fun giveaway items! My favorite Christmas tradition is opening one present on Christmas eve. My parents started it, and we’re having a great time doing it with our little ones:)

    • Hi Cassandra,
      I’m so glad you like all the items. That’s a great tradition to pass onto your own children and relive the excitement of the memories of yesterday.

  10. Samantha L. says

    I hope to start new traditions this year and decorate. We usually travel for the holidays so it seems silly to decorate when we aren’t home to enjoy it. I would love to put that Santa up as an easy way to infuse some Christmas cheer.

    • Samantha – I love your statement Infuse Holiday Cheer. I think the Santa picture would be an easy way to do that. Thank you for stopping by to chat a little.

  11. My favorite Christmas tradition is going to my Nana’s on Christmas morning.

    • Hi Stephanie,
      That sounds like a lovely tradition. Spending time with the people that love and nourish us is the best. Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Melissa Sparks says

    Every year we go to the inlaws house, We have dinner, Open Gifts, Take pictures.Gather around, Tell stories, and just hang out and enjoy time with each other! I cant wait for Christmas, my favorite time of the year.

    • Hi Melissa,
      The description of your Christmas brings a smile to my face – sounds like you are blessed with a sweet family. Thanks for your comment.

  13. such a sweet bundle of goodies. The Santa is my favorite! Thnak yu for the opportunity to enter xo

  14. Diana Hatch says

    I love the Santa picture

    • Hi Diana,
      Thanks for stopping by. I really like that Santa picture also and had to wrestle with myself on whether or not to keep it but I don’t need another Christmas decoration right now and just knew it needed to delight someone else’s home. Best wishes and hope you come back to visit often.

  15. Georgia Beckman says

    One of our Christmas traditions is to let the children open one gift on Christmas Eve.

    • Hi Georgia,
      You are sweet to drop by. That’s an awesome Christmas tradition. I know they must get so excited. When my children were small I would take them to the fabric store and they could pick out material for Christmas pjs to wear on Christmas Eve. It is one of my nicest mommy memories.

  16. amy williams says

    I love the santa picture. Our tradition with our two boys is santa leaves his gifts by our fireplace and the gifts from mom and dad get hid all over the house so when they come out they see that santa has been there and then go on a hunt for their gifts they love it.

    • Hi Amy,

      Oh how fun – a treasure hunt on Christmas. Have you ever forgotten where you put one? Great tradition – thanks for sharing. Glad you like the Santa picture.

  17. We always go to my grandma’s house on Christmas Eve night. The family gets together and exchanges gifts, and we get to eat party foods. My grandma makes homemade candies, chicken salad sandwiches, and even egg rolls. It is great.

  18. We always open one gift on Christmas Eve, it is always a new pair of pj’s so the kids look nice Christmas morning.

  19. I love everything about Christmas! My favorite, I think, is my family eats tamales for breakfast on Christmas morning. Kind of strange, I know, but it feels normal to me!

  20. Our favorite tradition is going up to the mountains and cutting down our own tree. They usually aren’t as pretty as the store bought trees but it means something to us. Plus nothing beats the smell of a real tree.

    • Hi Ashley,
      That sounds lovely and I can tell memories are made with each year’s tree. Thank you for your comment and stopping by to visit.

  21. Hello! It is nice to meet you! My favorite item in this lovely giveaway is the citrus juicer! And I love the Santa picture. Thanks. Vicki.

    • Hi Vicki,
      Very nice to meet you also. Oh, the citrus juicer is something I use several times of the year. Thanks for coming by – really appreciate it.

  22. For Christmas, we always play board games together! THat it our tradtion!

    • Hi Desiree,
      What a great idea. I can picture your family laughing, playing and doing one of the most important things we can do – spend quality time with those we love. It is also a good reminder that some of the best times don’t require a lot of money. I am very appreciative you stopped by to share your Christmas tradition.

  23. Dawn Monroe says

    We carry on my grandfathers tradition of putting up a “Candy Shelve” for Christmas. We put out ribbon candy, xmas cookies, fudge and an assortment of other candies and nuts. The santa picture and cloth would go great with our shelf.

    • Dawn,
      Your tradition brought back such memories for me. My grandmother has been gone for several years (and today happens to be her birthday) but she always made an assortment of fudge and had ribbon candy on her coffee table during the season. The Candy Shelve must look picture perfect. Thanks so much for sharing and coming by.

  24. Melinda Stephens says

    My favorite tradition is staying up on Christmas Eve watching movies and playing board games.

    • Hi Melinda,
      Movies and board games sound like a wonderful way to spend Christmas Eve. It makes me smile. Thank you so much for sharing.

  25. Love the santa pic!

    • Hi Claire,
      So nice to meet you. I’m glad you like the Santa picture. He is pretty cute. I feel blessed you stopped by to visit.

  26. I’m most excited about the Santa picture. My walls are pretty bare and it would def make my place more festive looking.

    • Hi Wendy,
      I like the idea of the Santa making a bare wall a little brighter in your home during the Christmas season. Thanks for stopping in and the comment.

  27. Haya Mahfaza says

    We make ginger bread houses together as a family and have our mom give each house a superlative ;D

    • Hi Haya,
      Thanks for sharing your tradition of making gingerbread houses as a family. I have to admit I needed to look up superlative. I appreciate you teaching me something new. Just in case there is anyone else out there – here is a brief definition: English superlatives are typically formed with the suffix -est (e.g. healthiest, weakest) or the word most (most recent, most interesting).

  28. We always have a Christmas Brunch. Homemade waffles are always on the menu, but otherwise, we try new items every year. Some of them are very good and we continue to make them year after year. Others, well, we just toss the recipe in the trash.

    • Hi Pam,
      I like your idea of Christmas Brunch, waffles and trying new recipes (even if they don’t turn out) – all memory making stuff. Thanks for popping over and sharing your tradition.

  29. Darlene Owen says

    My favorite item is the citrus juicier.

  30. We like to drive and look at Christmas lights.

    I like the red paper napkins!

    • Hi Nancy,
      Looking at Christmas lights and displays are the best. We are pretty blessed here in AZ since it’s usually nice enough to walk outside. I’m glad you like the napkins. I thought they were pretty cute. Thanks for stopping by to leave a comment.

  31. My favorite item is the kitchen towel- we can always use more.

    • Hi Crystal,
      I hear you. I a towel freak when I cook and can have 3-4 out at a time. Thanks for spending some of your day with me – it is appreciated.

  32. Barbara Blanton says

    I love the Santa picture. My family favorite tradition is having a big breakfast then opening presents.

    • Hi Barbara,
      Nice to meet you. That Santa picture is a popular favorite. I like your tradition of breakfast and then presents. When our children were at home we used to eat breakfast before gifts for several reasons: 1. It made the excitement last a little longer 2. We were able to get some food in their tummies to balance out all the adrenaline 3. The kitchen could be cleaned up before opening which meant we as parents could enjoy our gifts too! Thanks for sharing.

  33. Robyn Huffman says

    Every year since our daughter has been born (and actually the year I was pregnant with her), we have attended Holiday House to see Santa, have milk & cookies with Mrs. Claus and just take fun holiday pictures. There is also lots of shopping by locally owned businesses and we always find a unique ornament for our daughter to add to the tree.

    • Hi Robyn,
      That sounds like fun and a great way to mark each Christmas. When my children were small they each chose something Christmas they liked. My daughter wanted to build a mini village and my son chose snowmen. Each year we would buy something new. When my daughter moved out – her village went with her. My son still stores his snowman collection here but someday he will have quite a few to decorate his house. Thank you for stopping by.

  34. My favorite Christmas tradition has always been getting to unwrap new pajamas on Christmas Eve. My parents started this tradition and I continue it with my kids! They love getting their Christmas Eve (usually matching) pajamas!

    • Hi Shannon – New Christmas PJs are the best. I love that you are continuing a family tradition and that you find matching pjs. The pictures must look adorable. Thanks for coming by.

  35. Katie Bellamy says

    The Santa picture is really cute!

  36. Michelle Tucker says

    I really like the Santa picture with a hanger. It’s so cute.

    • Hi Michelle,
      It’s hard to see the hanger that is built in but I think it makes the cute Santa picture extra special. I am grateful you stopped in to visit for a bit.

  37. our Christmas tradition is the kids come over and put my decorations out

    • Hi Laurie,
      That is a wonderful tradition and I bet one you are very appreciative of. Thank you for sharing.

  38. I’m excited about that Santa Picture,he’s so cute! Thank you for the great giveaway 🙂
    I follow you on Blog Lovin’ as frap4sue

    • Hi Sue,
      I am glad you like the Santa and you are very welcome. It gives such pleasure to make someone’s Christmas a little brighter. Thank you for your comment.

  39. My Sister and I put together a new tradition about 3 years ago which, basically, brings back old traditions. We’ve started an Ole Time Country Christmas where all gifts must be handmade, homemade, fruits or nuts, just like in earlier times. We’ve had such a great time with this. Everyone participates and it’s so neat to see what everyone comes up with. Plus, we have a huge family so this takes a lot of pressure off of the pocket books and the mind. We still purchase gifts for the little ones, of course!

    • Hi Gena,
      Thanks for taking the time to share a Christmas tradition. That sounds amazing and I’m sure helps keep the adults reminded of the true meaning of Christmas.

  40. One of our Christmas traditions that started when my oldest (now 17 years old) was little is to sprinkle reindeer food (oatmeal with glitter in it) on the front lawn on Christmas Eve, to make extra sure that Santa stops by!

    • Hi Tara,
      I’ve never heard of that but I’m going to tuck away to use when my grandchildren are older. Thank you for sharing and spending a few minutes with me.
