Building up gingerbread houses is a Christmas tradition that started during the 16th century in Germany. Sure, back then, fresh-made gingerbread was used for the foundation, walls, roof, and beyond, but with all of the holiday prep work that takes place in this century, sometimes it's easier to just snatch up a kit and focus on the decorating part. Adults and kids alike have a blast rolling up their sleeves and decorating gingerbread houses, so check out our top picks and start stocking up!
