Build Holiday Memories and a Whole Lot More with Build-A-Bear. Plus Enter to WIN a Gift Card!!

Back in July, for my son's birthday, we took a visit to Build-A-Bear Workshop for his party. It was one of the most magical experiences we have eve had together. Everyone had a fantastic time, and we all made the most loveable stuffed friends that are still most beloved to this day.

While my kids are fans of stuffed toys in general, it is clear that all others take a back seat to their Build-A-Bear friends. Although the party was for my son, my daughter may just have had more fun than anyone, and she is convinced that all the Build-A-Bear friends belong to her. Daddy even made a Marine Corp bear(as he is a veteran of the Marines) and she even tried to claim that one.

With the holidays approaching, I am trying to think of all the very best gifts to bring delight to my kids on Christmas morning, and of course I could not overlook their love of Build-A-Bear friends.

As wonderful as our trip to Build-A-Bear was, I cannot place that under the tree, and a gift card for a trip is not a good idea, as they would demand to go immediately(with one being only 2 and the other Autistic, it is hard to explain patience). Thankfully, Build-A-Bear also has a huge selection of pre-made animals on their website, so I got them each one to tuck away for Christmas.

With so many incredible choices, including adorable holiday characters, it was so difficult to choose only one each, but their was one pair that I could not pass up. I chose Rudolph and Clarice, and they are so precious.
You can get these cute little reindeer undressed, or dressed up like I got. You can choose whichever clothing you like on your own(like I did for Rudolph), or choose one that comes dressed already like the Merry & Bright Clarice.

Rodolph looks so handsome in his Christmas Sweater, scarf and hat, and how cute are those little Rudolph slippers?
As if he could not get any cuter, let us not forget, this is Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. It's his job to lead Santa's Sleigh, so his nose needs to shine extra bright, so of course, it does!
Thanks to a little button on his ear, Rudolph is ready to light the sky with his signature red nose. How awesome is that? My son is going to LOVE his new friend Rudolph.

My daughter is certainly not one to be left out, and she will not accept a lesser version of anything. It's a good thing that Clarice is just as specktakular as Rudolph.

With her adorable red bow and gorgeous Red and Green Polka Dot Dress, she is quite the vision of loveliness.
Factor in her Red Bow Glitter Flats(or Ruby Slippers as they resemble to me), and she puts other reindeer to shame.
She is so sweet and loveable that she is sure to make your heart glow, just as hers does.
My little girl is going to flip for this beautiful reindeer friend. I just hope she does not try to claim both of the. I can see why she would, they make quite to stunning couple.
Out of all the gifts I am getting them, these are probably the most special, and the ones that I would most love for myself. I am not ashamed to admit how much I would love my own darling reindeer friend. I cannot wait to see my children's faces on Christmas morning as they light up brighter than their new glowing friends with the joy of such a special gift.

These will surely be beloved companions all year long, and I look forward to growing our holiday Build-A-Bear collection each and every year. I have decided that a Build-A-Bear each will be our holiday tradition.
