Give A Whole 30 Gift

This January, I’ve set off on my third round of Whole 30. I return to it every year because I enjoy the reset I get after the indulgence of the holidays. Getting back to basics with food feels amazing after eating all the cookies and drinking all the wine in December. Each year, my sweet friend goes along on the journey with me. We encourage each other, we talk ourselves off the ledge of quitting, but mostly we are each there for one another from start to finish. I began thinking about how I could show her how grateful I am that she continues to do this with me. I missed my opportunity at the start of this round, but next time I’m sending her a little Whole 30 gift to show her how glad I am that she does this with me. I’m sending a few of the following:

A Great Gift to Give: The Christmas Eve Box

A few years ago, I noticed a holiday tradition popping up on Pinterest, the Christmas Eve box. I’d never heard of it before and thought it was such a sweet way to make Christmas Eve even more special. Most of the boxes included a new set of PJs for Christmas night, some hot cocoa, and a book to settle in with. I eventually began giving my kids their own little Christmas Eve box, and it is one of the things they look forward to most. I often catch them spying under the tree daily to see if it’s shown up yet. This year I’m sharing what we’re including in our Christmas Eve boxes, what are you putting in yours?

15 No-Stress Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Teen Boys

Shopping for teens can be tough, and for teen boys, it can be even worse. I never know if what I’m giving will be received with an approving “Cool. Thanks” or if I’ll get a nod with a slight smirk (which I assume translates to “Nice try”). At any rate, we do keep trying. Before scratching your head and sighing in defeat over what stocking stuffers to get for teen boys, grab this list of stocking stuffer ideas for teen boys and knock it out with a quick trip to Target.

The Best Baked Gifts for Those of Us Who Aren’t Great at Baking

Every year during the holiday season, I try really hard to knock out all of my gift shopping and wrapping as early as possible. Why do I drive myself nuts in October and November? So that by December I can enjoy as much of the season as possible. One of my favorite things to do during the holidays pull up a holiday movie (It’s a Wonderful Life is my jam. Do people still say “my jam”? Probably not), pour a glass of wine, and bake something divine. The only problem with this is that I’m not exactly a great baker and sometimes things just don’t turn out. That’s okay because some of it does and when it does, it’s gift-worthy. Here are few of my absolute favorite, fool-proof baked goods to eat and give during the holidays:Continue reading
