When it comes to the holidays, there’s nothing like being together with family and passing along your favorite traditions. For me, the holidays remind me of singing Christmas carols with my family and sipping on my mom’s famous hot cocoa! We’d all gather around, belt out our favorite holiday tunes and enjoy the moment. Now that I have a family of my own, I love passing along this tradition to my kids and singing along to modern day Christmas carols.
Speaking of singing along, one of my favorite stores to shop, Cost Plus World Market is bringing the holiday fun home with their Star Maker Song Contest! Ever wished you could become a singing superstar? Well, now you have the chance!
One of my favorite stores, Cost Plus World Market is excited to partner with GRAMMY® Award-nominated, multi-platinum star Jessie J. on their new holiday campaign. Along with featuring an original recording of Santa Claus is Comin’ To Town in their new Christmas video, Jessie J. will also be choosing the winning performance for World Market’s Star Maker Song Contest.

Take a peek at World Market’s new Christmas video! This heartfelt short video follows a little boy in search of Santa’s favorite Christmas cookie, but the gift he discovers instead turns out to be even more perfect.

Give the gift of music with a fun DIY Music Lovers Gift Basket
Our family tradition of singing Christmas carols and sipping hot cocoa was started by my dad. He did it as a child with his family and continued it on with us. It’s now my favorite holiday tradition and I couldn’t be more excited to pass it on every year with my family.
That being said, I felt the best way to pass on my appreciation for our beloved holiday tradition was to create a modern Christmas carols gift basket to surprise my dad with! I love creating gift baskets, they’re always fun and the perfect gift giving idea for any friend or family member.
Take a look at all the goodies I was able to find at my local Cost Plus World Market in Charlotte, NC. I think my favorite find was the beautiful galvanized gift basket. They always have such great holiday gift wrap options!
With two different types of gourmet hot cocoa mixes, snow lake marshmallows, peppermint stir sticks, decadent topping sauces and of course, the new Jessie J CD, I’m sure my dad will be overjoyed with this fun modern Christmas carols gift basket!
