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.)

A kids' Christmas mug is the perfect stocking stuffer or Christmas Eve gift to kick off an evening of family coziness. And what's more, it instantly becomes a family treasure that will bring back fond memories of time together for years to come.

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