Last year my three sisters and I gave an “Our Favorite Things” gift to our younger cousin (each sister chose our own favorite thing and packaged it all together as a curated group gift), and I loved the idea so much I wanted to share my favorite things with you all this year!
I’ve got to be honest, I’ve always loved every second of wrapping presents. Selecting the paper, the attention to detail, the accessorizing with ribbons and bows, and of course, the gift-giving itself. But the older I’ve gotten, the more I hear from friends and family that they hate wrapping! I can’t relate! I find the whole process to be calming, even meditative, and want to spread a little gift-wrapping love. That’s why I decided to pull together my top tips for wrapping gifts to make it easier, and hopefully a little more enjoyable for you! Happy gifting, friends!
While I’m a firm believer that holiday dinners should feel at least a little bit fancy, my family has always taken the more comfortable, casual approach. My dad would usually make his way to the dinner table in sweatpants, and my mom could usually be found singing a silly song with a turkey hat on her head. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Now that I’m hosting Thanksgiving dinner in my own home, I’m excited to maintain my family’s silly traditions, but also have to add my own touch as an event designer!
