As we get closer and closer to the holidays (eek!), I’m excitedly preparing for all of our holiday traditions. Getting ready for this sponsored post was a fun reminder of how our special holiday attire adds to those family memories. I did receive compensation from Visa/Gymboree to purchase products and use the Visa Checkout online payment service, but the cute kids, family traditions and opinions are my own.
Each year we create a special photo book that includes our favorite holiday pictures from that year. Over the years it’s been so neat to see how one special set of jammies or holiday outfit becomes the trademark of that season. Seeing the girls in those outfits again always takes me back to those special moments when they were just that size and age. Sniff!
While shopping on Gymboree.com the first thing we just had to choose for this season was our jammies. If you’ve followed this blog long, you know they are a big part of our advent activities throughout December. We start by opening them up on the first day of the month along with all of our other advent materials. Then we wear our jammies as often as we can during December for special family movie nights and our Christmas Eve light tour.
The next essential we chose was our dress-up outfits. I let the girls choose their outfits this year since they are getting older and definitely have opinions about their clothes. But I love how easy Gymboree.com makes the selection by matching up outfit choices and coordinating family pieces for us. Our dress-up outfits are for all those fancy holiday moments–whether legit or just made up fancy dinners at home! They usually debut in our memorable (exhausting?!?) family photos. Then we wear them when we go to see the Nutcracker and other holiday presentations. And they make one last official appearance at Christmas Eve dinner.
Make Paying Easier with Visa Checkout
When you’re ready to checkout on Gymboree.com you’ll notice something new! They’re working with Visa to provide an easier way to pay online. Visa Checkout is an online payment service by Visa that allows you to store all your credit and debit cards in one convenient location. Using your computer, phone, or tablet, you can use any major credit or debit card you own anywhere Visa Checkout is accepted.
With Visa Checkout there’s no need to fill out redundant forms and store my card information in multiple places. My information is protected by Visa’s security. Handy, right?
This was my first time using Visa Checkout, but it made holiday shopping so much easier so I can’t wait to use it again. Once you’ve set up your own account and entered the debit and credit cards you use regularly (once, not every time you shop!), all you need to do is look for the Visa Checkout logo when you are ready to pay. Click the logo and follow the directions. It’s that easy and fast!
