Capturing the magic of the holiday season

When you’re young, the holidays are a truly magical time, filled with enchantment, excitement, and wonderment. This captivating season slowly dissipates as time goes on, and for many, completely vanishes only to be replaced with the reality of the holiday season.

And so the process continues.

DIY Gift Wrap

If you’re looking to take a different approach to Christmas wrapping, why not try making your own? I really like the look of brown butcher paper and twine, so I decided to go with that look and put my own spin on this rustic gift wrap. I had a lot of fun personalizing the wrapping paper and decorating it, and I especially loved how affordable this project was!

Supplies:

  • Butcher/craft paper (brown and white): I bought these online at Amazon but also found them at the Dollar Store and the dollar section at Target.
  • Paint markers or Sharpies
  • Twine: I bought brown twine at the Dollar Store and the red and red and white striped twine at Target’s dollar section.
  • Bows

Holiday Gift Guide for Her

Gift giving is my favorite part of the holiday season – I love finding the perfect treasures for my recipients and feel so much joy in the whole process. I’ve never had much success when I “have to” find a gift for someone on a given shopping outing because I like the searching process to be more organic – I may buy you a gift in July for Christmas just because I happened to stumble across it one day.

I also find that shopping online is HUGELY convenient, but it can be overwhelming with the infinite searching options. If searching for the right gift stresses you out, look no further than my holiday gift guide. I make it really simple for you.

No matter what kind of woman you’re buying for, you’ll be sure to find just what you’re looking for. (And let’s face it, there’s no harm in indulging in a few little goodies for yourself – I’ll be doing some shopping off of this list as well.)

What’s on your wish list?
