Oriental Trading has everything you need this holiday season --holiday crafts, decorations, party supplies and so much more... & a Give-a-way!

(The Jackson Five Family Blog received a complimentary product sample to help facilitate this reader review and give away. However all opinions are honest and our own!)
My kids get so excited when the mail arrives and there is an Oriental Trading catalog in it. They seriously sit and browse page by page. It's filled with fun item's that my kids just love.

Not only does it have fun kids products, but there are teacher supplies, party supplies, crafts, games, toys and of course holiday items. With Christmas right around the corner it got me thinking about Jace's class  Christmas party at school.

For Halloween I brought in treat boxes filled with goodies from Oriental Trading and the kids loved them. They loved getting their own little goody box filled with treats that they could take home. So for Christmas I thought why not do it again.
When browsing the website there were so many cute treat boxes to choose from. Jace thought it would be fun to do gender specific ones so that's what we did. We ordered these really cute Sweet Treat Favor Boxes for the girls and Winter Retreat Favor Boxes for the boys.

Then the fun really began --picking out what to include inside the boxes. I love that Jace helps me decide what to get. It's a good learning lesson for him too. I tell him our budget and he starts deducting from it when we put an item in the cart. Some item's come with 12 pieces per unit, some with 24, some with just 1 for a certain price etc... and it really gets him thinking if it's a good deal or not. I love it! Bargain shopper like his momma, maybe? :-)
So after looking at all of the holiday item's this is what we picked out for the treat boxes:  

Festive Sock Monkey Stickers

Reindeer and Santa Pencils

Snowman Eraser Sticks

 Glitter Sticky Mittens

Christmas Owl Bubble Bottles

Holiday Sweet Treat Coin Purses for the girls

and Vinyl Foam Filled Snowman Football's for the boys.

I will probably add some holiday candy in too and I love that Oriental Trading offers that as well.

I can't wait to give these to Jace's class. Oriental Trading offers so many fun treats that it was hard to choose, but I'm sure they will love all of these fun little gifts!

Oriental Trading has so many neat crafts too. We love the holidays and doing things together as a family. I've been browsing the Oriental Trading craft section and think I'm going to order some DIY ornament craft kits. You don't have to spend a lot of money to brighten someone's day with a little gift and what better way for my kids to give than with cute, home made ornaments.

Here are a few of my faves above. Some are more personal with a picture or hand print and other are just adorable!
