Decorate It Forward with #Kmart! R/G

KmartOver the years the past few years as I’ve tried to establish my own little family – myself, Alan, and the two dogs – I’ve come to realize that the holiday season is more special when you take the time to decor your home into a welcoming and inviting place to entertain your family and friends. It shouldn’t be so much about the gifts and what we do and do not receive as it should be about the spirit of Christmas and just enjoying one another. Normally, I don’t start my holiday shopping and decorating until after Alan’s birthday which is on November 27th, because he doesn’t like his birthday to include all the Christmas decor. However, this year we did get started a bit early when we took a trip to Kmart to check out their holiday shop.

I’ll be honest and admit that I don’t shop at Kmart. Hardly ever. The main reason being is that Kmart is no longer in our local town so I have to travel either to Topeka (30 mins away) or Kansas City (45 mins away). It just so happened that we were in the KC area a few weeks ago and decided to pop in so I could use my Kmart gift card to Decorate It Forward! I really enjoyed the holiday shop that Kmart had put together. They had a ton of options in the ornament section and I even found some interesting ones, including a Pickle Ornament.

Kmart has some great Christmas decorating resources that you should check out: Kmart Christmas Shop will link you to all their available Christmas Trees, Lighting options, Ornaments and other fun decorations. Kmart has also partnered with St. Jude Hospital, where you can help donate by buying an exclusive St. Jude Holiday Bear Collectible Ornament for $5 in store or online. For every bear ornament that is bought, a $1 will go back to support St. Jude’s mission. Talk about holiday cheer!!

The items I ended up purchasing with my Kmart gift card where a red stocking for the dogs, an owl dressed up for cold weather (I have a thing about owls right now) and a cute little snow man ornament for the tree.

    I love it when companies give back to the community. I try to only do business with companies that have shown good social conscience.

    I like to hang lights outside as a way to spread the holiday cheer to everyone who goes by the house. They are so cheerful when it’s cold and gray outside.

    We love decorating our home for the Holidays and hosting family, friends, neighbors and other gatherings in our home. We also love going to our church and a couple local charities to help them decorate as well.

    We live in a rural area quite set back from the highway, so all of our decorating is done on the interior. We love to make the house smell delicious with decorative candles – it’s our number one favorite holiday decorating trick.
