One of my favorite Holiday traditions is wrapping Christmas books for my kids. I use the same 12 books each year and re-wrap them for the next. They love opening and reading a book each night until Christmas arrives, though I will admit it can get them into the habit of unwrapping any present they see (and I speak from experience). This will be our second year and it feels kind of special to create traditions that are original to our little family (though not original in general). If you like the idea, but not all the money involved in buying 12 cute christmas books, do what I did and wait for the after season sales to pick them up.
