December is a magical month for us — but think about what it was like when you were younger. The anticipation of Santa Claus coming hung in the air, the stack of presents beneath the tree grew with each new day, and the stockings filled to the brim on Christmas morning was enough to just about make you explode with happiness (and sugar).
Relive some of that Christmas magic for yourself and help the children in your life feel connected to the season when you fill the month with activities they’ll love. In today’s blog, we’re filling you in on some of our favorite Christmas activities — some of which will help you know just what to put in their stocking. Buy Christmas stockings from Gigi Seasons today so you’re ready to make the season as magical as ever!
