I can’t believe Christmas is next week already! This year it really snuck up quick! We haven’t even decorated our tree yet! One thing I always make sure to do on time is set out our Christmas book collection. My kids, even though they are getting older, really look forward to this. It started with board books when they were babies and progressed on to picture books. We have a nice little collection now and we add to it every year! This year we got two wonderful books from Sourcebooks Kids. Cookies for Santa is a story about how Santa’s favorite cookies saved Christmas. It is beautifully illustrated and even includes Santa’s personal cookie recipe! We can’t wait to make these Chocolate Krinkle Cookies over winter break!
Dear Santa by Susanna Leonard Hill and illustrated by John Joseph is a great book about a boy named Parker (my daughter’s name!) that writes an honest letter to Santa. He knows there’s more to Christmas than being on the naughty or nice list and that it’s okay to make mistakes.
The really cool thing about this book is that there are special stationary pages in the back of the book for your own children to write letters to Santa. The book also includes instructions for the grown-ups so that they can get a personalized letter from Santa in return! How cool is that?!
If you’re looking for a unique gift that will help you bond with the special people in your life, look no further than Katie Clemons Journals! These one-of-a-kind journals are designed to nurture deeper bonds within the family. I for one cannot wait to use them, especially with my daughters!
Choose from Between Mom and Me and Between Dad and Me for your sons to help develop a closer relationship between mom and son or dad and son. It contains fun writing prompts to help you get to know each other better and in the end creates a really cool keepsake that will be neat to look back on!
For your daughters, choose between Love, Dad and Me and Love, Mom and Me (or do both!). These sweet journals are similar to the Between Mom and Me and Between Dad and Me journals but are designed for parents to bond with their daughters. My oldest daughter is going to LOVE this book and I think it will really help us to get closer to one another.
For those that are still waiting for their kids to arrive, choose Awaiting You, a pregnancy journal that will help you journal your thoughts as you await their arrival. I journaled all three of my pregnancies but none were as cute as this adorable journal!
The We are So Thankful journal is a little more generalized. It can be for a boy or a girl and doesn’t have to be exchanged between parents. It could be shared with an older sibling or another adult. I feel like this journal will help both writers to be more aware of others feelings and develop an appreciation for each others strengths.
All of these journals are wonderful tools for developing strong relationships. You can spend just a few minutes a day or even decide to do them on a weekly basis so they don’t take a lot of time but can be really valuable for getting to know each other on a deeper level.
