Happy Saturday! Since we are on the cusp of the holiday season I thought I would share some mom hacks/tips/insider secrets for making the holidays less stressful so you can focus on the more meaningful parts of the holiday (which is what it’s all about, right?!). Plus, a few Saturday sales.
Every October I partner with some amazing companies to give DoSayGive readers exclusive early bird discounts on some very special holiday gifts. My readers love checking off some of their holiday “to-dos” early so they can have a more enjoyable Christmas season later on. Many of these are personalized gifts that need to be ordered in advance anyway so you will be ahead of the game! Be sure to scroll through all the gifts and learn about all these fabulous small businesses.
Want to make Christmas a tad less stressful this year? Order some of the fabulous gifts in today’s post now (many with an exclusive DoSayGive discount!) and you will be so glad you did come December. Great ideas for neighbors, teachers, clients, parents, friends, and more!
The holiday social season is upon us! With so many of us hosting and attending parties, I thought it would be the perfect time to think about Christmas party etiquette. I am delighted and honored to have former White House Social Secretary, and now blogger at America’s Table, Lea Berman, share her etiquette tips along with some beautiful ideas for hostess gifts!
I have several Patagonia items in my Holiday Gift Guide this year. Well, good news, there is a 20% off sale on top-selling Patagonia fleeces and coasts – both in store and online – at Saint Bernard. And pretty much everything ships free!
One thing I learned during my first holiday season as a blogger is that I really need to start posting ideas for gifts and traditions a bit earlier in the fall. After all, some things require a bit of planning and preparation! Today’s post is about how to organize a Jesse Advent Tree ornament exchange. And if you don’t have time for an ornament exchange, I found some beautiful already made Jesse Tree ornament sets that you will love!
Today I am sharing wonderful Christmas traditions that might give you ideas for your own family. And, to add a little something fun, I’ve been taking pictures as I’ve visited friends’ houses this Christmas season and am sharing the beautiful and unique ways they decorate their homes for Christmas.
