Thank you to Gymboree for providing me with a gift card, free of charge, in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions shared are my own.
Who here loves holiday fashion? I sure do, and I love to see my spunky five-year-old son get into the holiday spirit, by dressing festively, as well. When B was a tiny little guy, it was so much fun to dress him in adorable outfits for holidays and special occasions... and he had no opinion regarding what he wore. These days, he's quite the opinionated little dude, and sure has something to say about the clothing he wears. It has to be comfortable, and it has to look cool... and it absolutely can't be 'cute.'
Gymboree has the styles kids want to wear for the holidays and beyond! We are so busy during the holiday season, that we often forget to slow down and enjoy those one big happy holiday moments. They have already begun, and are just whirling by in a flash! We've already shared some truly special memories this Christmas season, and since this is B's last Christmas as an only child, I am definitely doing everything I can to make sure that it's a Christmas he won't soon forget!
Shopping for holiday wear (casual and dressy styles) can be a nightmare, so I try to take care of that myself, by shopping online. Gymboree is one of the clothing brands we love most, and fits B best. They have such awesome styles for little dudes who refuse to wear anything that isn't awesomely cool!
I was excited to shop the Gymboree Holiday Shop, on their easy to use website.
I came across tons of cool styles for boys... for dressy occasions,
and for casual days!
I had a hard time narrowing down my holiday selections from Gymboree, and then found that were having a huge sale, which made it even harder to wrap up my order! Shopping online was so easy, though. I did it while B was at school, and then had him look everything over, to make sure he approved of my selections! We spent about $100.00, and got 10 pieces of clothing/accessories!
B couldn't wait to check out all of the cool holiday styles from Gymboree!
Check out our loot- 4 t-shirts, 1 pullover, 1 dress shirt and tie, and two pairs of play pants!
One of B's favorite picks was the Shark in the Santa hat T-shirt!
These dino-riffic Christmas PJ's would be perfect for cuddling up and watching holiday movies together!
How adorable is this penguin tie? I can't wait for B to wear it on Christmas Eve!
Play pants are a must for my rough and tumble boy, and these pants are comfortable, durable, and easy to wash and wear!
T-Shirts with cool dude designs, yes please!
Making our One Big Happy Holiday Memories with Gymboree...
B couldn't decide what to wear first. He loved all of his new clothing from Gymboree so much! The first thing he just had to try on, were his new Dino Santa Jammies. We went with a size 8, and they're a great fit for B. He feels so super special in Christmas PJ's, and has loved wearing them while decorating the house and decorating the tree. Plus, he snuggles with his cute little Magic Elf, Snowflake, every night, and it's so sweet to see them together in their festive PJ's!
B, loving his Dino Santa PJ's, and practicing Christmas carols in his room before bedtime. You can bet I took video of that!
Another family tradition that I love, is meeting up with the entire family in Downtown Salisbury the day before Thanksgiving, for the Annual Holiday Caravan (Christmas Parade). B loves to hang out with his cousins, and see some of his friends dancing in the parade. We all bundle up, and hang out with hot cocoa or coffee. We usually see friends from high school who are back in town for the holidays, and we love meeting their kids, and introducing them to ours, as well. It's a big, happy time!

And then there are the other holiday traditions I love, like decorating the tree as a family. It's usually silly, frustrating, and always winds up being tons of fun. Next Christmas, we'll have little sis with us, and that will be a whole new memory to make. B loves knowing that he has a little sister on the way, which is why we picked out a cool Big Brother T-Shirt from Gymboree. He is so proud to be a big brother, that he couldn't wait to wear it. It says 'This Big Bro Rocks,' which is totally true- he does!
B, having a jolly time in his new Big Bro Tee and Play Pants from Gymboree!
I can't wait to have the whole family dressed up for Christmas Eve. One of my favorite Christmas traditions, is heading to my hubby's grandparent's house on Christmas Eve for dinner, and then all heading to church together. It's such a special time. I ordered B the red plaid button down shirt to wear with the penguin tie on Christmas Eve, however, I totally goofed and ordered a Men's Medium, instead of a Boy's Medium. Oops! Good thing that Gymboree makes it easier than ever to make returns. I can even return the item in store, for credit. Plus, I received some Gym Bucks that I can use in the coming weeks, since I spent at least $50.00 on my order! I certainly love being rewarded for shopping for my family!
