Do you have a favorite Christmas movie?

I personally love the campy classics – A Christmas Story, Elf, and my #1 favorite – National Lampoon’s Christmas VacationYou know, the one where a young Juliette Lewis plays Audrey, Seinfeld’s Julia Louis-Dreyfus is a fed-up neighbor (pre-Seinfeld), and all Clark Griswold wants to do is install a swimming pool at his Chicago home with his Christmas bonus, but his stingy boss gives him a subscription to Jelly of the Month club. 

It’s hilarious, trust me. I watch it every year without fail. But this year I am watching it while drinking hot cocoa from my very own Jelly of the Month Club novelty mug from Zak Designs.

Along with paying homage to that classic, Zak Designs also has some really fun mugs and drinkware from the other great films I mentioned along with those television stop motion classics like Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman. 

I personally adore the Leg Lamp from A Christmas Story and was delighted to see it in mug form. Perfect for my sister who can’t get enough of young Ralphie and his desire for a Red Ryder BB Gun. But really the lamp is the best part of the movie…

And who could forget Will Farrell in his iconic role as Buddy the Elf? I mean, it’s a new classic but a classic nonetheless. I can’t help but smile every time Buddy squeals in delight over the thought of seeing Santa again.

You can find Zak Designs at most retail places, like Target, Bed, Bath, & Beyond, and Kohl’s. Or you can order on Amazon or directly through the website at

Thanks to Zak Designs for partnering with me on this post. I am gonna go watch Clark Griswold flip his lid again as only he does…
