Christmas is one of the most wonderful times of the year, but it can undoubtedly be one of the most stressful times as well. To make sure we get the most out of this special time with our families, we have a few rules we like to follow!
Remember it isn’t about finding the perfect gift!
We know this can be so stressful, spending hours perfusing the internet, or waiting in line ups at the mall, as cliche as it may sound, it really is the thought that counts!
Try to get organized early!
Writing lists really helps for us! When do you want to do your baking? Wrap your presents? Write Christmas Cards? All of these things are so fun and special to do, but can be overwhelming, planning out in advance helps keep you on top of things!
Try to remember it’s not all for ‘The Gram’!
Be present, enjoy your family, soak it all in! Don’t be worried about getting the perfect shot, your memories will last forever.
We know we said it isn’t about the perfect gift, but if you are still struggling to think of some gift ideas, we wanted to share a few of our favourite things to receive!
A great book, we love Rachel Hollis’ Girl, Wash Your Face.
A candle like this Thymes Frasier Fir poured candle.
A cozy throw blanket.
Some delicious Tea from David’s Tea, we love this Tea Advent Calendar.
And if all else fails…. WINE!
