Creating Memories for Believers with Package from Santa

This post is sponsored by All opinions are my own.

"SANTA! I know him!" In our house, we are believers in Santa. Believing in the magic of all things Santa Claus is a wonderful memory from my childhood that I cherish and am so excited that I now get to share with my children. The key in our digital age is to encourage the belief in fun and unique ways.

Creating Memories for Believers with Package from Santa

We participate in Elf on the Shelf each year. And we decided this year to do something extra special for the first day with a package from Santa. offers you a choice of 3 unique treasure chests of authentic, Santa Claus goodies and letters from Santa sent right to your child, directly from the North Pole! It’s a bundle of proof uniquely personalized with your child's name. It comes addressed to them so if you don't have an elf, no worries! Kids love getting mail! Every Package is painstakingly crafted, packed and shipped with care and even includes a real Santa return address and genuine North Pole Stamp.

Something For Everyone with 3DLIGHTFX

My son is adjusting to his new bedroom and I have decided to get him some kind of light to go in his room because it is very dark right now. He also has almost zero décor in his room. It's because we really didn't have a decorated nursery for him like we did for our daughter. I am terrible and never got around to it. BUT we have decided to a chic Star Wars theme for his new room.


I have known about 3DLIGHTFX 3D Deco Lights for a while now and since we have just now decided on a theme for his room, what better time to get him one of these! 3DLIGHTFX 3D Deco Lights are the perfect gift this holiday season. They have a full range of comic book, super hero, Disney Princess, sports and car lights that look as though they are popping right out of the wall. We chose the Darth Vader light because our son loves him.

Decorating For The Holidays

Who doesn't love decorating for the holidays? For so many years I would get Christmas decorations as gifts because, seriously, that's all I wanted and I love them so much! This year we are in a new home so it was a chance to change things up. I decided to grab some new décor inside and we were excited to finally have the opportunity to decorate outside!

Decorate For The Holidays

Most of the décor we bought on our own. But I did have the opportunity to work with a few brands this for my Holiday Gift Guide. And I'm very excited to share them with you.

Unique Gifts from Hammacher Schlemmer

Hammacher Schlemmer has unique gifts for everyone on your shopping list. I was so excited when I received the opportunity to include them in my Holiday Gift Guide. I was asked to pick an item from their HUGE selection for products. There were so many things I liked. Last year I chose The Award Winning Dump Truck, but this year I decided to get something for the hubby and I. So I picked the Ultra Slim Wine Refrigerator.

Gift Idea for the Wine Enthusiast

The Ultra Slim Wine Refrigerator is a dual-temperature wine refrigerator that secures 18 bottles yet measures less than 10"-wide. Ideal for narrow spaces—such as the end of an apartment’s buffet or island—while providing the convenience of a fully stocked kitchen cellar, it stores Bordeaux-sized bottles with seven chrome shelves that pull out easily for readjustment when storing larger bottles from other appellations. A built-in shelf supports upright and preserved wines.

Train Fun with Whittle Shortline Railroad

My son is obsessed with trains. When we are driving in the car and he spots tracks, he says "choo choo" and "look train" over and over again. I love to play with trains too, so I'm very excited he is starting to get into them. But he doesn't really have a nice train set. My in-laws plan on giving him a Thomas set, but I want to expand his collection with a high quality set too.
