We are in full holiday mode over here and are busy preparing for Christmas and enjoying all of the fun of the season. This past weekend we carried out our fun tradition of shopping for the family at Village Pointe Shopping Center! As I shared last year, we created the fun tradition of making one shopping trip to buy small gifts for each other. The kids find it so fun to shop the different stores and pick out something for both parents and siblings. And you know I can’t resist coordinating, lol! Outfit details below!
We start the fun with hot chocolate and coffee at Scooters – this is where we make our lists and go over the map of all the stores. We then divide up, shop, and then switch parents This year may have been my favorite experience yet as we finished the shopping with a movie at the Village Pointe Cinema – add that to the tradition! We always go to Village Pointe because of the variety of stores – it makes it so much easier to shop for the different family members.
The girls tend to love things from Claires, Justice, and Lush. Hudson wants all sports things from Scheels. I am happy with anything from Kendra Scott, lululemon, or Evereve. And Aaron, as many of you would guess, wants to shop the Apple Store (or at least hang out in there while we are shopping!)
While helping the kids pick out gifts for each other and Aaron, I was able to do some shopping of my own. I got quite a few gifts crossed off as we browsed all of the different stores. The great thing about shopping at Village Pointe is we are able to shop a huge variety of stores in one location. Because our gifts we bought each other are tucked away (and the kids want to keep it all a surprise!), I will share some of the other gifts we purchased while out shopping!
We picked up this cozy throw at Scheels to gift one of our sisters. Aaron is in love with it, so I may have to snag another for him!
I got this beautiful Kendra Scott Necklace for my mom. They have the prettiest packaging!
This oil diffuser is from Scheels – this will make a great office gift for Aaron’s employees!
We love experiencing Village Pointe Shopping Center during the holidays – the kids love the big tree and I love the decorations and festive feel. This has become such a fun family tradition for us! I hope you all are enjoying the season and all of the fun that goes along with it!
