When it comes to getting into the holiday spirit, there’s nothing better than sending or receiving a beautiful holiday greeting card. While Twitter and Instagram may be the perfect places to express yourself throughout the year, you should do something extra extraordinary over the holidays and send a good old fashioned card.
As print and physical mail start becoming a thing of the past, it’s rare and special to receive an actual piece of mail that isn’t a bill. Plus it’s super fun and retro to go to the post office.
So go ahead and show your friends and family some holiday love with a card that expresses your unique personality, your city or whatever else makes you merry. Any warm greeting whether it be Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, etc. is sure to make someone smile even if they don’t celebrate it themselves. Don’t get caught up in feeling the need to keep everything generic. Just say what you want to say. Most people don’t care and those who do don’t belong on your holiday list.
Celebrating the holidays often means traveling long distances to stay with faraway friends and family. It’s great to catch up with loved ones over wine and coffee and reminisce about past holidays all while making new memories. Even if you’re not exchanging gifts with your fab holiday hostess (or host), I’m a strong believer in giving them a special hostess gift to say thank you for their holiday hospitality.
We all have the friends who’s dogs are the center of their lives. They’re obsessed with talking about, spending time with and spoiling their furry friends. And who wouldn’t be? They’re adorable and have been super good this year. Therefore, dogs deserve just as many Christmas gifts as their owners.
If you haven’t already started, it’s time to get your holiday shopping on! The sooner you check off everyone on your list the sooner you can enjoy a warm cup of hot cocoa while watching your favorite Christmas special.
My Christmas mornings have always begun with finding tiny treasures in my stocking. It was the only thing we were allowed to open before my parents woke up. So I figured I’d begin the first of my many holiday gift guides this season with my favorite stocking stuffers.
