Mom says toddler’s personal Christmas tree is a ‘must’ for the holidays: ‘This is adorable’

Decorating the Christmas tree always provides a touching family memory. 

TikTok mom Kailina Erickson let her toddler son feel a little more independent this holiday. Erickson let him design his very own tiny Christmas tree. She shopped Hobby Lobby’s “My Little Christmas” section, which features miniature trees and ornaments. The mom let him pick out all the decorations he wanted. And it was a moment the two of them could cherish forever. 

“If you have a toddler or a little kiddo, this is a must-do for Christmas this year,” Erickson said. “Head over to Hobby Lobby, take them to the ‘My Little Christmas’ aisle and let them pick out their own little Christmas tree and their own ornaments.”

Erickson’s son picked out reindeer, red trucks and snowmen ornaments for his tree that looked only about a foot tall. The entire project cost her about $13 after receiving 50% off.

“It was so fun to watch him pick what he wanted,” she said. “He loved fluffing the tree, and he loved that he got to decorate it 100% on his own. I just let him do whatever he wanted. He had so much fun, and we made such a great memory. Now he has his own little personalized Christmas tree in his room.” 

Parents loved Erickson’s idea for a kid’s Christmas tree. 

“I did this with my daughter. So fun!” a user wrote

“I’m so doing this for my boys,” another commented.

“I’m crying. He’s so cute with his little tree,” someone said.
