Christmas Wouldn't be the Same without our Annual Oriental Trading Shopping Spree!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



Taking a look at these little, soft, plush sweethearts, you might be asking, "Whatcha' got there?" My reply would be..."4 little (12") Yarn Hair Slumber Party Dolls from Oriental Trading that are going to make the four little girls in my family very happy when they pop up in their Christmas stockings this year!"




The little blondie in our family is going to get a kick out of this one that has the same color hair as she does. ;)  I'm already guessing she's going to have it on her pillow with her nightly. After all, this little doll is already in her pj's and slippers, and ready for a little nap/sleep time.

These would be great additions to any holiday slumber parties you might be hosting for your little girls this year too. In fact, they would be the perfect take-home gift for each one of your lovely wee guests. What little girl wouldn't love a sweetheart to cart along with her when she goes back home?


For the sister duo in our family, instead of putting the dolls in stockings, I've opted instead to put theirs in this sweet JOY Nativity Gift Bag. These are sold in sets of 12 for a very reasonable price. They are just one of many gift bag designs you can get from Oriental Trading. I chose these because the nativity holds a special place in my heart. I love the simplicity of the design and that JOY is written in big gold letters behind it.



Everyone has probably already seen those cool pillows with sequins in stores. A lot of you may already own one if you have kids. They are definitely a trendy 'it' item. Oriental Trading has this Plush Reversible Sequin Christmas Tree that is generously sized at 14" x 18" and is a perfect gift for the holiday season.  You can put it on the couch and have an instantly festive conversation piece, or your child can put in on his/her bed with their other pillows, to add a touch of Christmas to their room! The beauty of these pillows, is that you can draw designs in the sequins. One side is green, the other red and you expose the colors by 'drawing' on them with your finger. Fun-fun!


And of course, Oriental Trading is notorious for it's affordable stocking stuffer bundles. The set above comes with 52 items, very reasonably priced, that are fun finds for the kids. You could also use these to make treat bags for the kiddos that will be in your home (or at your work), if you're hosting some kind of holiday party this year. This particular set is full of great choices: paddle balls, coloring books/crayons, yo-yo's, card games (I was delighted to see Old Maid in there), cushy holiday-themed, hand/stress balls, Chinese yo-yo's, bendables, punch balloons, bracelets and more! 


We're huge on stocking stuffers here, and there are a lot of kids in the family, so in addition to the bundle, I picked up a dozen Snowmen Bouncing Balls. These are 1 3/4" so they are a nice size, and who doesn't love a bouncy ball? You can pick up different themes, I just happen to really like snowmen, so this style was an easy pick for me. I may or may not (*ahem*) have kept a couple aside just for me. ;)


Because Slap Bracelets are always a huge hit with the kids, I picked up some of those that were holiday-themed (all cute, but Santa is definitely my favorite),


and to stay true to my practical side, I picked up some glittery/sparkly pencils (that don't shed glitter) to tuck in the stockings too.

Christmas just wouldn't be the same without the little goodies we pick up each year from Oriental Trading. It's become a shopping tradition for us! Check out their website to see the tons of goodies they have available for the holidays this year. If you've never visited the site, you'll be amazed, and if you have...you already know you're in for a treat.

  17. Oriental Trading has always been a favorite for Sunday School teachers as they have Christian friendly items that you can buy in multiples and usually at a pretty decent price point. I like those dolls that you showed above. I also like the pencils and gift bags a lot too. Have a great Christmas and a blessed 2018 the whole year through.
