Hopefully none of my nephews or nieces are reading this post because it’ll give away what they’re getting for Christmas. Well…kind of!

We’re giving the nieces/nephews on my side of the family the option to have Christmas cash or to go Christmas shopping! We did this a few years ago and it was so much fun!

I wanted them to have something to open on Christmas day so I decided to put together a bag of goodies for them. (I purchased a few Christmas goodies and the rest came from my stash!)

I didn’t have any filler for my bags so I decided to make my own. My first attempt was cutting up wrapping paper, which turned out pretty cute. Then when I ran out of the wrapping paper filler I noticed that I had a package of icicles that you use for Christmas decorations. Perfect! (I recommend the icicles.)

Place your filler in the bottom of your bag and then fill it to your heart’s content. (You could also purchase fun bags but I couldn’t find any at the store I was shopping at!

And, of course, it wouldn’t be the same unless you added a bow!

Do you have any special traditions you do with your nieces/nephews?
