A Kris-mas tradition! The Kardashian-Jenners show off their artsy gingerbread houses every holiday season — and this year Kourtney Kardashian revealed the origins behind the family’s Christmas tradition.
In a recent holiday-themed blog post on her Poosh website, the lifestyle brand’s founder, 43, explained how the tradition began – and how she followed in her mother’s footsteps.
“cris [Jenner] has loved Solvang Bakery since she was a little girl when her grandmother Lou took her to the family-owned place in Solvang, CA,” read the post, which was accompanied by photos of the Kardashian-Barker family’s gingerbread house. “These childhood memories sparked the tradition of sending their own children individualized gingerbread houses each holiday season. She has been sending these handcrafted houses from Solvang Bakery for almost 15 years.”
For her part, Kardashian has “now … continued the tradition by sending Solvang Gingerbread Houses to some of her friends and family for Christmas and Halloween.”
The California native and Travis BarkerKardashian, who tied the knot in three separate ceremonies this year, share six children: Kardashian’s children — Mason, 13, Penelope, 10, and Reign, 8 — who she shares with an ex Scott Disickand Barker’s children — Atiana, 23, Landon, 19, and Alabama, 17 — who he shares with his ex-wife Shanna Moakler. (Atiana is Moakler’s daughter from her previous relationship with Oskar De La Hoya.)
Her bespoke 2022 gingerbread mansion featured a fireplace inside and featured each family member’s name written in icing on the roof.
As for Kim Kardashian‘s Solvang Gingerbread Architecture, the Skims founder gave her 337 million Instagram followers a tour of the cookie decor earlier this month.
“This was delivered by my mom, how cute – Santa is sitting here and there are lights upstairs,” the Kardashians star, 41, said on her Instagram Story on Dec. 9, showing off the main gingerbread house.
All four of her children – Kim shares North (9), Saint (7), Chicago (4) and Psalm (3) with her ex-husband KanyeWest – were also given their own individual houses.
North’s house featured several Gingerbread People in all-black outfits, as well as two Gingerbread Dogs in honor of the pets Sake and Sushi. The names of her friends were emblazoned on the roof of the house.
For his part, Saint went with what his mother dubbed a “Tommy Bahama Tropical Holiday Surf House,” complete with palm trees and sugar sand.
Chicago, on the other hand, opted for a colorful gummy bear display in front of their gingerbread house, while Psalm’s silver house featured a wreath on the front door and a gingerbread man in front of the creation.
Adding to Jenner’s love for all things gingerbread, the mother, 67, is going all out with her Christmas decorations and earlier this month showed off her custom-made Elves on the Shelf, which represented each of her 12 grandchildren.
