Cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Homemade if that works, otherwise I use Pillsbury or store brand from a can because traditions shouldn’t be a heavy load for mom, they should be bright threads that run through your family history as fond memories.
- Cereal: here’s where we go crazy. All year we eat sensible, low-sugar cereals, but for Christmas…the kids get their very own box of their choice, even if the first ingredient is sugar!
- Candy bar or savory treat like chips, jerky or nuts
- Small gifts: candy, soaps, hand warmers, tea, hot chocolate, candles, deck of cards
- travel size toiletries
- Toothbrush and toothpaste
