Christmas is our absolute favorite time of the year and one of the things that makes it extra special is our family’s holiday traditions. We have A LOT of them, in fact, we have SO MANY that we actually kick off our holiday decorating starting November 1st every year. To help get everyone in the holiday mood a few years ago I bought us matching Dearfoams slippers and now that has become my absolute favorite holiday tradition.
I love to gift them by surprising the kids one morning. They come downstairs to a fully decorated front room complete with our holiday tree. I have a batch of cocoa waiting for them along with their new holiday slippers. The joy in their eyes is EVERYTHING!!
There is just something about having a warm cozy pair of holiday slippers- it really helps get you in the Christmas spirit. Not to mention it’s a functional gift too, helping to keep your toes nice and warm now that the weather is cooling off.
I love to pair the family matching slippers with matching holiday pajamas as well- Christmas is the only time I can convince everyone that matching is fun-ha! The dogs were included this year too!
The festivities usually continue with holiday baking, more decorating and snuggling up together on the couch, and enjoying the first Christmas movie of the season.
I remember being worried about the kids turning into teenagers, I was worried some of these traditions would slip away. But, I am happy to report that all four of my teens crave the traditions now almost more than when they were younger. I think the nostalgia grows as the years pass by.
It is one reason I love Dearfoams Family Matching Collection so much. They are one of, if not ‘the’ only, family It is one reason I love Dearfoams Family Matching Collection so much. They are one of, if not ‘the’ only, family matching slippers that I can find with both kid & adult styles so my teens can still get in on the fun!
Dearfoams also has the cutest holiday slippers each year + they have SO MANY options for families. There are Papa Bear, Mama Bear, Lil Bear, and Baby Bear. Which are the ones I typically purchase.
I mean how can you resist Dearfoams Baby Bear Slippers? I think every baby needs a pair!!
Plus, extended family can get in on the fun! Dearfoams has matching slippers with the names Big Sis Bear, Big Bro Bear, Uncle Bear, Auntie Bear, Gram Bear, Nana Bear, Grand Bear, Grampy Bear, Papá Oso, Mamá Oso, Niña Oso, Niño Oso, Bebé Oso & more! I think it would be fun, especially this year after being away from family so much last year, to give Dearfoams slippers to our whole family when we head to our annual cabin getaway. What do you think?
They also have several different styles in their Family Matching Collection. These are the styles we chose last year, they still have them now!! Along with a cute navy plaid option and, of course, the fluffy scuff slippers we chose this year too!
It’s my belief that these little traditions are what have helped us create such a tight family bond. Something that has always been a top priority in our family. And, these routines are also what makes coming home from college feel like ‘home’ Camden says.
So, if you are looking to start a new holiday tradition or simply an amazing holiday gift that every person on your list will appreciate, I highly recommend checking out Dearfoams slippers. Beyond their adorable holiday-themed options they have a bunch of everyday styles too!
