I’ve been trying to share this project for the last week, but I’ve been dealing with rainy and overcast weather here in Charlotte and the lighting just wasn’t cooperating. But I finally got a break and was able to shoot the printable holiday ‘Elf’ coffee gift card holder this morning, just in time for all of those last minute gifts!
I’m one of those people that lives for a holiday (you either love us or hate us). I’m the friend who’s always planning new activities, looking up fun events, or planning a new adventure, all while simultaneously trying to get everyone else to go and do them with me. I try to squeeze in as many things as I can to really make myself feel like I’m getting the most out of the season. To be honest, I think it’s me trying to recreate the holiday magic that I always felt as a kid. Once you turn into an adult, the magic just isn’t the same. So instead of just going through the motions, I really try to stop and take in as much of a holiday or season as I can. One way I like to do that is to create a checklist! I make a list of all the things I want to do that make me feel the “magic” again. The items change based on the holiday, or the season, and can be new things I’ve never done before, or classic go-to traditions that I make sure to accomplish each year. Today, I’m sharing my printable winter activity checklist with you guys!
With everything going on in my life these last few months, I’m a little behind on my holiday gifts. I just finished crossing everything off of my shopping list, but I haven’t even started wrapping anything yet. Luckily, I’ll still be able to wrap the prettiest packages and they won’t take me very long thanks to this DIY wax seal holiday gift wrap idea! It’s so easy to do and looks so chic!
Now that we’ve covered the girls and the guys, it’s time to talk about some stocking stuffer ideas for kids! I wanted to put together some items that aren’t sweets and are things that kids will actually use. Some of them will even help your lives go a little easier too 😉 Getting them out from in front of a screen and doing something different was also up there on the top of my list, so a lot of these items are great for families, letting them get creative, or learning a few things too.

I’m back again today with another round of ideas to make your holiday shopping that much easier! This time around I’ve put together a TON of stocking stuffer ideas for him! (I shared stocking stuffer ideas for her yesterday, if you missed it!)
Every year, I really try to pick items that my husband will actually want to use and not just fill his stocking with junk because it’s easy. So if you’re on the hunt for some great ideas, I’ve got you, and the man in your life, covered! 😉
