We are about making moments matter here on The Love Nerds, so, of course, we love our holiday traditions and celebrating the magic of Christmas. Things are always a little brighter and cheerier during the holiday season, and I always get extra time with Bryan since things slow down for him at work. Starting on Friday, our time is going to be filled to the brim with festivities – special time with loved ones, holiday outings, gift giving, and more! Celebrating the Magic of Christmas with Hallmark's #NorthPoleFun! From personalized ornaments and Christmas stories to great hostess gifts and fun kid's toys, there are tons of fun holidays ideas! {The Love Nerds} #NorthpoleFun #shop One of my favorite traditions of the season is time with my nieces. Every year, we gift our nieces an excursion instead of a traditional gift. This is definitely something we plan on continuing when we have children of our own. I like spending their gift money to take them to something beautiful, fun, new or even educational instead of on clothes or toys that might end up in the corner of their room. It is special time dedicated to them, and we always have so much fun! This year we are planning on going to see Cinderella on stage and visiting the science museum. Here are a few snapshots of our celebrating last year by the big Chicago tree! Niece Christmas 2013 Our time at home is just as important though! Home time can include a special treat, like making cookies or chocolate fondue, board games, a big brunch, getting nails done, playing with lightsabers or a holiday movie/story, too. So when I was out shopping for Christmas gifts at Walmart and stumbled upon the Hallmark Northpole Holiday items, I was super excited! Celebrating the Magic of Christmas with Hallmark's #NorthPoleFun! From personalized ornaments and Christmas stories to great hostess gifts and fun kid's toys, there are tons of fun holidays ideas! {The Love Nerds} #NorthpoleFun #shop It started with me picking up the Once Upon A Northpole Christmas story which includes a Find me Santa Snowflake ornament. The ornament has a space to write a name on them, and it glows and changes colors when you press a button. They sell the snowflake ornament separately, too, so both B and D have a special ornament waiting for them at my house that connects with the Christmas story book. Check out this video to see how pretty the lighted ornament is! Celebrating the Magic of Christmas with Hallmark's #NorthPoleFun!

I picked us up a cute snowflake plate with knife, small bowls, and a couple cute mugs that say “Filled with Cheer.” Isn’t that mug just calling for Hot Chocolate?! They are a cute way to celebrate our holiday season, but they would also make awesome hostess and office gifts. Fill the mug with goodies, aka “cheer”, for a really easy gift idea!

Remember when I said I got carried away? I thought it was time for a new holiday movie and I know my younger niece is going to get excited about seeing her ornament in the movie, too! Every little bit of magic is important! You can see the movie trailer here! It looks really cute! Hallmark Northpole Fun at Walmart Make sure to check out these special Northpole by Hallmark items and more! You kind can find them online and the special book and ornament gift pack will be sold exclusively at Walmart. I found everything in the card section of the store! 

How do you keep the Christmas Magic alive? What Christmas traditions are your favorite?

I love hearing from all of you!

    I *love* that you gift an experience, rather than a thing! Such a brilliant idea! :) And it’s perfect to tie in special little things, like the storybook and ornaments, so they do have a physical thing they can keep to remind them of the gift. The Northpole line is so darling I’m glad you picked up some goodies for you, too 😉 #client
