Dress to Impress on Christmas

We love the holidays, especially watching our family get dressed up on the holidays. Christmas and Thanksgiving are just about the only holidays I see my kids dressed up for anymore. It is wonderful to see my daughter in a pretty little dress, and my son in the perfect little suit. We dress to impress at Christmas dinner. But we also dress to impress at all the holiday parties we attend. My kids will probably be dressed up at least a dozen times this holiday season. Which can get expensive. One of the things I love about The Boy’s Store is how easy it is to make a snappy outfit pull together out of multiple pieces for very little money. The items are quality, they stand up to wear, and they can be handed down from boy to boy in the family. For big families, that’s a win!

Blazers and vests can be paired with different pants, shirts, and ties. They look great, can be styled differently every time they are worn, and always look good.

Many of these items are reduced in price. Check them out. They might just make our holiday season all the more stylish!

Christmas Ornaments: Build Your Own!

Do your boys love legos? If so come really close, be very quiet, and don’t let anyone see your computer screen for the next few moments.

If you need some new ideas for gifting fun holiday items this season, look no further. We have found lego Christmas ornaments. Your boys will love building their own Christmas decorations and hanging them from the tree. Chris McVeigh has dozens of fun Christmas ornaments that are going to make your boys gas this year when they open their presents. Each kit comes complete with directions and a kit to hang the ornament from the tree. You can choose from their many different series including Geek, Gingerbread and More, Plate series, and Christmas Trees.

Your boys will love interacting with their new toy/Christmas decoration, and it will be fun for the whole family. The incredibly cool part is once the holidays are over you can disassemble it and pack it away for next year. Unlike most ornaments that need to be protected while packed away this will be perfectly safe. And unlike most gingerbread houses which need to be eaten or thrown away. At the end of the holiday this one can be kept and enjoyed for years to come!

Check out Chris McVeigh and his incredibly cool building kits now. It is the gift that will build memories for years.
