I'm no Grinch, but the holidays can be exhausting! Balancing holiday parties, shopping, wrapping presents, scheduling time with family from out of town (on top of your everyday schedule), can be every bit tiring and dull the magic of the season. To maximize holiday cheer, this year I choose to take a more personal and creative approach to holiday giving that didn't involve hectic parking lots and long check out lines. The only thing that should be on your agenda this holiday break is to eat, drink & be fancy!
Hot Cocoa Jars
You've seen variations of these adorable little jars all over Pinterest, so why not make your own! This is the perfect gift for co-workers, friends, neighbors, teachers, etc. and are very customizable. I choose to make them for friends, so I added a little extra spirit with a mini Bailey's tied to the side.
And then there was glitter! I had a friend make these a few years ago and fell in-love with everything about them! It's the perfect way to send your friends, colleagues and neighbors into the New Year - and super easy to do!

Start at the neck of the bottle.
Work in sections.
Add Mod Podge to a small section and follow with glitter.
Repeat in sections working your way down the bottle.
Spray the adhesive very lightly, so it doesn't dull the sparkles.
Holiday Treat Packages
Last, but not least - holiday cheer in a box! For friends who live out of town it may be hard to ship that glittery bottle of champagne, so I sent treat boxes instead. I had so much fun finding random goodies that are sure to spread holiday cheer from miles away.

With Thanksgiving behind us, the countdown to Christmas is officially on! A whole month of festive music, holiday parties, family, friends and winter break; it really is the most wonderful time of the year. But in between re-runs of Elf, decorating the house, and jumping from party to party, there never seems to be enough time to squeeze everything in, especially holiday shopping.
As of today, there are only twenty-three shopping days left until Christmas!
