Holy moly! Christmas is gone and the new year is upon us. The tree might be bare and the menorah dark until next year, but there are still celebrations to be had. In a few short days, we will be wishing goodbye to 2011 and welcoming 2012 into the fold. For some that means gathering with friends and potential friends-to-be at local celebrations like Times Square. For others, it might be mid-day celebrations with young children at local parks or museums and to bed at a reasonable hour for all. But there are others of you who plan to whoop it up til midnight and beyond with friends, family or neighbors in the comfort of your own home.
If you fall into the last category, do you have your bar stocked and champagne flutes shining? Have you started making nibblies for your midnight snack bar? Do you have noise makers, confetti and silly hats at the ready?

In that case, you might want to have this fabulous acrylic party bucket by Preppy Cards. It is a must for any gathering! It comfortably holds a 6-pack of your favorite beer or soda, with room to add a few bottles of wine and Seltzers. Crafted from vinylized, waterproof material with an additional laminate coating for extra durability, everyone will comment on it as they pull their beverage from it.
And with all those drinks around, you might want to invest in some coasters to protect the furniture. These personalized letterpress drink coasters are perfect for entertaining and make a great hostess gift. These coasters are our new favorite go to gift ! Order 100 for $96, one color letterpress. Choose any monogram or motif you want! We love them and so will ANYONE you give them to!

Tempt yourself with these melamine Plates and Bowls that can be easily customized as per your choice, designed by Clairebella. These can be sold separately or even as a set. There are different patterns, colors, fonts and names that you can be imbibed on them.

pretty in pink pedal car
Twas the night before, the night before Christmas and all through the malls
There were more creatures stirring than I had seen all Fall
Jostling for parking and juggling for space
I’m so glad I shopped online and avoided this race!
matouk luxury cairo robe
So Papa in his new matouk luxury cairo robe
snuggled in to read to the kids beside the snow globe
While I finished Christmas baking and wrapping
then took off my apron and gave it a fling!
gordonsbury monkey business snuggle sack
I was done! No more presents. No more prep work to do!
After 50,000 straight hours the bustle was through!
All that was left to get done
was to snuggle tight and have fun!
blue dream hand painted wooden letters
So with a long sigh and sharp clink of ice
I turned off the laptop & other devices.
I survived another holiday season it would seem
So tonight I would sleep soundly, with maybe a sugarplum dream.
Merry Christmas from all of us at Babybox.com. May your holidays be merry and bright!

I know that at this time of year we are inundated by images of Santa, reindeers and little baby Jesus sleeping away in a manger, but today I want to remember some of the other celebrations that go on this time of year – namely Hanukkah. Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights for Jews around the world and it begins at sundown on December 20th this year. It is an 8-day celebration based on the miracle of the menorah. The history behind it, is that the Jews won in battle over the Seleucids in the 2nd century BCE. They reclaimed the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, but only had enough oil to light the lamp for one day. Miraculously, the oil burned for eight days; long enough to replenish the stores of olive oil for the menorah. This miracle was noted and has never been forgotten.
Today, the menorah is lit every day over the eight days of Hanukkah to recognize this sign from G-d. Babybox.com lights a candle too with our personalized hanukkah pattern classic short sleeve tee shirt. Who says the holidays have to be somber? Have a little fun with this shirt that will look adorable on your kid. Designed with turquoise and gray hanukkah print, it is classic and unique. This classic style short sleeve tee shirt works on any child and comes in sizes 2T, 4T and 6T or youth sizes 8-12. In fact, you can get this pattern in a short or long-sleeve lap tee, long-sleeve tee, capsleeve tee, baseball tee or even tank top. It is made from 100% cotton and easy to care for.
By its very nature, Hanukkah certainly wouldn’t be the same without people. So send some Hannukah cheer for friends and family with this card. It features a fashionista girl wearing her little black dress sitting on top of a pile of presents and holding a dreidel. Happy Hanukkah is written on the top of the card.
Just to let you know, the cards are blank inside. Please contact our design studio if you would like this design personalized with a greeting inside, firstname.lastname@example.org
This stylish card measures 5″ x 7″ and is printed on luxurious warm white card stock (recycled). Warm white envelopes are included. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this product will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and other organizations promoting breast cancer awareness.
Along with the menorah and the people, the celebrations always center around food. Latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiots (doughnuts) are made and need to be served. What better way to present them, than on this beautiful handpainted Hanukkah plate. It is a pretty way to enjoy this special holiday. You and your child can celebrating traditions with this fun plate. The plate design features a girl holding a tray of potato latkes sits in the center surrounded by dreidels. The outside of the plate is decorated with your baby’s name, dreidels and “potato latkes.” Plates measure approximately 8 1/4″ and are made from imported Italian bisqueware which is dishwasher and microwave safe. This makes a great gift.
If you would like your child to learn more about their Jewish heritage, what better way than with their very own personalized personalized hanukkah book and plus bear gift set. In this beautifully illustrated story in which your child celebrates the eight days of Hanukkah, the child lights the Menorah, plays with a Dreidel, enjoys chocolate Gelt and Latkes, and on day eight receives the gift of a cuddly bear. The child’s name is incorporated on the book cover and throughout the story, and the child’s family members are included on an illustration of gift tags on presents around the menorah.
As an added touch, the story features a personalized letter from the gift-giver telling the child what a special lifelong friend he or she will be for the bear. Written by Jennifer Dewing, illustrated by award-winning Wilson Ong.
So from Babybox.com to all our Jewish friends, we wish you a very Happy Hanukkah!

wooden hanging letter - "i";
I have been very good this year. I tried not to fight with my big sister and almost never poked my baby brother to see if he would cry. And I would never dream of taking Daddy’s shoes and using them as a home for my pet rocks. Honest, I wouldn’t! You know, right!
personalized full blanket with stars and initial
I admit that its sometimes hard not to splash in the puddles. And I might have got grass stains on the knees of my pants once or twice. Oh, and I know that you can see me when I’m sleeping and know when I’m awake, so don’t tell Mommy that at nap time I sometimes try to stay awake by making forts with my Favorite blankie. Thanks!
peace for all wall art by donna ingemanson
So I know I should ask for world peace, an end to war and new underwear. Grandma said something like that. I guess all those things would be great. Maybe if you could bring an extra meal to those in need, I know they’d certainly appreciate it too! Just suggesting.
pedal race car - black
But Santa, I just have one question. I was wondering if you think I’d been naughty or nice? And maybe if you could forget some of my worser moments, you might still drop some treats into my stocking Christmas night? If you can see that my heart is just golden, then maybe if I get one thing more? Cus, I’d really love a new race car! And if you bring me one, I promise not to chase the cat!!!
