I am not going to lie, decorating for the holidays with a baby is beyond tough! It took us a month of debating back and forth whether or not to buy a tree. In the end, we bought one, but it was put in a room that Joaquín is not allowed in. My son likes to destroy everything and I mean everything. I am not sentimental about a lot of things, because at the end of the day they are just “things”, thus if he breaks something it is not the end of the world. However, my Christmas decorations are extremely special to me. Half of my family is from Germany and we all know that Germans make the most gorgeous Christmas decorations. My family has passed down to me generations old handmade Christmas decorations that have survived the wars and have somehow made their way from Germany to the United States and into my hands. I would be devastated if Joaquín broke them and so I am not taking them out this year. This is why, when I saw at my local Walmart that the following brands — Cottonelle, Kleenex, Scott, and Viva — all had Christmas theme products, I knew I had found the perfect solution to our decorating problem!
Our local Walmart is such a pleasure to shop in. Everyone that works there has a pleasant and helpful demeanor. Sometimes when I have run out of ideas of what to do with Joaquín for the day, we head to the toy section in Walmart and he is the happiest boy pulling everything off the shelf and watching me put everything back on the shelf (only to do it all over again). On our last trip there, we picked up the products that I had previously mentioned to decorate our powder bathroom. I do not have to worry about Joaquín breaking any of these products and yet they add the magical touch of Christmas to our home that I so desperately wanted. We purchased: Scott® 1100 Bathroom Tissue, Cottonelle® Toilet Paper Double Rolls, and Kleenex® Perfect Fit Holiday Canisters.
Not only are these products the easiest holiday décor must-haves, but if you visit the Ibotta app you will also be able to find incredible deals on all of these products, like buy two products and get an extra dollar back. The holidays are such a busy time, especially for moms preparing their homes for kids on winter break and out-of-town guests, so trust me when I say it does not get easier than this! Cottonelle, Kleenex, Scott and Viva have your household needs covered and you can find all of these brands at Walmart; a one-stop shop for all your holiday preparation and entertaining needs. I also added a couple of affordable holiday ornaments that I found while at Walmart.
