    My favourite gift was a framed picture of my Dad and I (when I was two) with Santa. Every year my family’s goal is to make me cry with a gift. My sister won that year haha

    Great giveaway at a great time. Moms aren’t thinking about buying for themselves during the holidays. This would be a real treat.

    I was traveling and living in Australia, and my family sent me the best present ever. It came in a poster tube with lots of chocolate from home. I unrolled the brown packing paper inside to find my family traced each of their upper bodies on it in different colored marker, and signed a little love note. There was velcro on each end of the paper so I could wrap it around myself and have a hug from home, whenever I wanted 🙂

    Christmas to me is all about the fun traditions and events going on; just getting to spend time with loved ones. That time together is the best gift for me. And now I’m also in the phase of having so much fun picking out thoughtful gifts for my little one.

    So many cute outfits, Jen! Thanks for doing this giveaway! Especially love that teddy bear coat- it looks so cute and cozy!

    My favourite gift my husband got me was a purse. We went a few years not giving gifts them out of the blue one year he went out of his way to pick me out a beautiful designer bag. And to top it off he slowly saved by taking a bit of money out each month. This way I didn’t notice the big purchase come out of our account before the holidays. The fact he planned for months prior made it extra special.
