So Thanksgiving is over, and around here that means it’s safe to do all things Christmas! Whether it’s decorating the house, driving around looking at Christmas lights or playing Christmas music 24/7, the Christmas spirit is abundant in our house. As I discussed in my previous post, that also means it’s time to plan for those Christmas cards than need to be ordered soon! That means planning outfits for each of my 4 boys! I hate matching street clothes in portraits, so I turned to Gymboree for a variety of quality, coordinated clothing for my boys.


Each year when I choose clothing, I decide whether these images will be going up on the wall or just in a card. If they are being printed for the walls of my home, I go with colors that can be appreciated ALL year long, such as blues and creams. If not, like this year, I can have fun with holiday colors like red! This is really important to consider each year. Either way, Gymboree has you covered. This year, I fell in love with their Holiday Shop collection. Each of the kids, well I do like to match the twins since they are identical, had their own unique outfits that still created awesome family portraits.

Shopping at Gymboree for Declan was super easy, at almost 4, I can still pick cute, little boy outfits that would make anyone smile. I chose the Reindeer Tee for him, the Plaid Cuff pants and the Fleeced Lined Boots to complete the outfit.

Cayden loves sports, wants to learn archery and can’t wait to be as big as his older brothers. Gymboree’s Flannel Vest, Henley Shirt, and Slim Jeans really fit his personality don’t you think?

When it comes to the twins, I usually try to match them. I mean they are identical, and they are usually my “bookends” in family portraits, so it’s important they are more matchy. For them, I chose a more mature Flannel Shirt, the Colorblock Thermal Tee and Slim Jeans. Gymboree really creates a great balance of appropriate choices between age groups.


The Holiday Shop Collection had so many wonderful coordinating choices for the boys. Why stop at just one outfit? Check out these other great options.

The Driving Cap was a huge hit with Cayden.

This Pizza Christmas Tee fit the twins to a T.

Declan especially loves the Reindeer Hat!

The Holiday Shop Collection from Gymboree exceeded my expectations this year! The clothing made for some pretty awesome images this year,  but of course my handsome boys may have helped out a little bit with that. The quality of the clothing and the variety of awesome choices always makes Gymboree the place to shop. They certainly did not disappoint us this year.

What are some Christmas traditions in your home? Whether it’s family portraits, baking cookies, decorating the tree or singing carols around the neighborhood, Gymboree has you covered in the what to wear department! For 10 days, from December 1–December 10, across stores nationwide, Gymboree will help customers add wonder to the season by gifting them with a holiday memory in the making. When customers visit Gymboree in store, they will give them a scratcher at checkout. The scratcher might inspire family game night with a Mattel Prize Pack of Uno, Apples to Apples and Pictionary plus $50 to for Gymmies to outfit the evening! Or perhaps, a gift basket of Mrs. Fields Cookies–sweet treats for Santa! Or, a mid-holiday shopping trip treat with a Free Auntie Anne’s Classic Pretzel. Two lucky customers will be treated to their next holiday vacation, with a Club Med all-inclusive family vacation. Every scratcher will reveal a special surprise, One Big Happy Wonderland!
