Do you need Christmas and holiday ideas for the kids? Look no further. This is a challenge the entire family can participate in. The 25 Days of Good Deeds Challenge. This Christmas Advent Calendar printable is the perfect way to get ready for Christmas and get in the spirit of giving. Print this out and talk to your kids about doing one good deed each day for someone else. You have to make sure to tell them that they can't expect anything in return because that is the true spirit of giving. This will make such a great new family tradition and also teach them to be selfless and to be grateful of what they have. Alternatively, you can make it a 25 days of gratefulness and write down each day what you are grateful for. Either way, it is about the true spirit of the holidays. This is a great spin on the traditional advent calendars. This is a challenge I am making for everyone to spread some love and the spirit of giving. Feel free to share with your friends and family.
You can put it on your desktop in your home office, you can place it on a mantle, you can hang it by the Christmas tree, on the refridgerator, or anywhere else you like. All the different sizes are available at your fingertips.
This advent calendar can also be personalized. Please feel free to include in the Notes section of checkout if you would like to put your family name. For example, "The Murphy's Advent Calendar."
*Please feel free to hashtag #25daysofgooddeeds to see what other people are doing and to spread the word. We would love to see as well so don't forget to tag @ladesignboutique. Ready. Set. Give.

A digital proof of your print will be emailed to your email on file to review and edit before finalizing so that we ensure 100% satisfaction if you chose personalization. Please be sure to keep a lookout for the email to ensure timely delivery of your product. If you choose the digital file, the file sent to you is the high resolution file ready to print. If you choose the printed version and we do not hear back from you within 48 hours, then we will assume there are no changes and ship out your item.
You have three convenient options when purchasing this item:
1. Digital File: The high resolution jpeg file at 300 dpi will be available for download after you place your order in all three sizes at one price - 8x10, 11x14 and 16x20. So whether you choose 8x10 or 11x14 or 16x20, you will still receive all three sizes. Please note nothing will be physically shipped to you if you choose the digital file version. The best part about this option is that you get the file quickly and can print yourself or print to a local printer. All you need is a decorative frame and dry erase markers. If you requested personalization, a revised file will be emailed to you.
2. Printed: Calendar will be printed in the size you selected on 69lb premium glossy photo paper and shipped to you without frame so you can select the frame yourself. 8x10 prints will be mailed in a flat envelope whereas 11x14 prints will be mailed in a white mailing tube.
3. Printed and Framed: Once you approve the file if you wanted it personalized, your print will be printed on 69lb premium glossy photo paper and framed in a matte black frame. All framed pieces will be bubble wrapped, and packaged with tissue paper to make a great gift. A dry erase ultra fine point black marker will be included.
