Here are some new traditions I’m looking forward to this holiday season. wit and delight

This year, I’m focusing on establishing holiday traditions with the family! Instead of packing everything I do—cookie exchange! secret Santa! Holiday parties!—I look forward to creating memories with the kids that they will take with them as they grow up with their own families. Hopefully, my list of holiday traditions will help you focus on what activities you want to do with the closest people in your life. From baking cookies with friends to taking a holiday staycation, there are so many ways to make the holidays special but the ones you think the people in your life will enjoy the most.

This is the year to create new memories with our loved ones while honoring the old traditions we cherish so much.


NEW: Establishment of our Concordville Holiday Village

Concordville Village $34 – $98

I have great memories of setting up a Christmas Village every year, and I’m looking forward to creating new memories with my kids this year setting up a Holiday Town. Each Concordeville piece is made of zinc and is dated with a year. You can expand your collection (and someday pass it on to the next generation) as the years go by.


themed jewelry

Baked Potato Glass Ornament $32

Last year I started collecting themed ornaments that represent something special from the past year. this year? A baked potato ornament for my daughter’s Halloween costume this year. It’s a fun way for us to remember all the good times we had throughout the year and share them with our friends and family during the holidays.


tree topper

Starry Snowflake Tree Topper $34

Another thing on my list is to buy a unique tree topper each year. Whether it’s an angel or a star, these little decorations add a special touch that makes our Christmas tree complete. Plus, it’ll be fun to see how our decorations evolve over time as we collect more pieces each holiday season!


New: A Nutcracker Painting

I have a growing collection of nutcrackers that I didn’t give much thought to (most were picked up at Goodwill) but my kids are obsessed. They name them, switch up the displays, and always find something new to discover about their designs, hairstyles, etc. So this year, I found some plain wooden nutcrackers at our craft store and applied acrylic paint to decorate them. He was very proud! I can’t wait to see how his designs change over the years.


tray of cookies for santa

Fair Isle Round Ceramic Platter $48

The night before Christmas we set out a tray of cookies and cocoa for Santa and carrots and water for the reindeer. Children take great care in choosing the right cookies.


Glog (Mulled Wine)

Cocktail Kit $26

Finally, what would Christmas be without some mulled wine? My mother never stops making it. It takes me back to my college years, reuniting with my brother and sister over several mugs of this drink before going to candlelit church service. (I’m adding this craft cocktail kit to my list this year!)

What holiday traditions are you implementing this year?
