24 Christmas Books Wrapped and Ready to Go!

I was busy putting the finishing touches to our collection of Christmas books last night. Each night before bed we will unwrap a Christmas book to read together. I'm so excited about this because my girls love their bedtime stories! This is one of the many great ideas I've from on Pinterest.

Being a teacher I already had a good stash of Christmas books before I had kids and I have slowly added to the collection each year. I haven't got 24 books yet as I'm still waiting on a few new ones from book depository. We have enough to get us started though. 

 
I wrapped them up using Christmas paper I had leftover from last year and printed the numbers from here. I printed them on white card for durability and used a scalloped punch to cut them out. You could also print them straight onto label paper.

Check out the how Liz from Bizzy Dayz has done hers here
She even has some gorgeous countdown labels from Bianca at a little delightful to print out if you want to do your own.

    1. That's a good question! I will be wrapping the same next year but I intend to add some new ones each year. There also are a few simple books in the collection that will probably not get used next year.
