Forget chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Curling up with a kitschy Christmas mug of hot chocolate and bingeing Christmas movies is the true sign of the holidays.

After all, it’s those kind of memories that make up childhood. And I’m not saying the memories are better when your kid has their own special Christmas mug, however my kids are a tween and teen who still wait for their Santa mugs to come out of storage for the season. (Luckily we inked their initials on the bottom to end fights over which one belonged to which years ago. Otherwise, I’m certain the battle would still be waged.)

Kids’ Christmas mugs make the perfect stocking stuffers or Christmas Eve gifts to kick off an evening of family coziness. And what’s more, they instantly becomes family treasures that will bring back fond memories of time together for years to come.

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite Christmas mugs for kids that are sure to become a part of your holiday celebrations. Check them out below!
