Christmas Book and Candy Countdown

I'm excited to finally get to share something with you that's been in the works here for a while, since back before Halloween in fact  Nestle invited me to do some projects highlighting their Christmas candies and I enthusiastically said yes!  (Disclaimer:  Nestle provided the candies and compensated me for designing and writing up the projects.  All ideas and an opinions are mine.)

Does your family do an annual Christmas Book Countdown/Advent Calendar?  It's one of our favorite traditions, and we made a good tradition up to awesome this year by adding a sweet little treat to each book.

Head on over to the Nestle Simple Celebrate Blog for all the details PLUS that's where you'll find the easy and cute printable labels to attach to the candy bags.  Or let's face it, you could even use the labels and add them straight to a wrapped book.

If you'd like to see a list of some of our family's favorite Christmas books, you can see those here.

Also, I'd like to thank Coley of Digidoodle Doo for letting me use her border designs on the tags.  She has some amazing Christmas designs.

And be sure to enter Nestle's Pinterest Sweepstakes for a chance to win $100 Visa Gift Card.

Please show my sponsors some love...

  1. We didn't do a countdown, but my mom would wrap all of our Christmas books and then we would unwrap one or two each night throughout the season. It was so much fun!

  2. Why didn't I think of this when I had kids at home??

  3. No countdown this year... but we are reading lots of fun Christmas books. :) I love all your pictures here :)
