Hot Wheels – Our Favorite Christmas Gift!

This post is sponsored by Lunchbox. All opinions are my own. 

Every single year for the last 7 years (since my son’s 2nd Christmas) I have purchased Hot Wheels cars for my boys for Christmas. My son’s first Christmas he was too young to participate. So his second Christmas we were so excited to have a child to spend the holidays with. We bought 10 individual Hot Wheels cars and wrapped each of them up individually.

When he ripped open the wrapper far enough to see the car the first one, he was frantic and excited – he couldn’t get to the car fast enough! You’d think that after the first few cars, his excitement for a new one might have lessened for him to want to play with the already open cars instead of opening up a new one. But it didn’t. Each time he was just as excited and frantic having to get the package ripped open and to his new car as fast as possible.


We couldn’t have got him anything better for Christmas that year and the $10 or so we spent on the Hot Wheels cars was by far the best investment in presents that year. He played with his new cars every chance he got during that trip.


We still use Hot Wheels in all four of our boys stockings every year because they are the perfect fit for a stocking and you can absolutely never have enough Hot Wheels cars! We are huge fans in this house!
