I’m so pumped to say that this year, my blog will have a holiday shop! I’ve seen a few of my favorite blogs have them and I decided to make one too, I had so much fun making it! I will definitely continue with the gift guides, but the holiday shop is just a bunch of fun gifts for anyone and everyone on your list (or yourself!) I will definitely be adding more ideas in the shop during the coming weeks, but for now, I have about 50 gift ideas listed. Simply click on the photo, and it will take you to where you can buy the item! If you have any gift ideas for the holiday shop, gift guide topics, or any post in general, feel free to leave me a comment or shoot me an email! Down below I’ve compiled a few of my favorite picks from the holiday shop, be sure to check them out!
Wow. It’s Christmas Eve. One day before Christmas 2015. Time sure has flown by! I can still clearly remember everything that happened last year. It definitely doesn’t seem like 365 days have gone by since then! Christmas is the best time of year. Sure, there are some great presents. But it’s also is about family, giving, and most importantly, Jesus.
It’s hard to remember the real reason behind Christmas sometimes. We just get so wrapped up in making our Christmas list, decorating the house, traveling all over, and doing regular Christmas things. Those things are totally fine! But really, the only reason we can do any of those things is because of Jesus. He came into this world of pain, sorrow, and hardships, just to save me and you.
I absolutely love comfy t-shirts. I wear them to bed, to school, to sports practice, anywhere! I found a great company that sells adorable and comfortable t-shirts, Southern Goods! I love how soft these are, they are made out of super comfy material that makes them perfect to slip on and instantly be cozy. Southern Goods sells all sorts of different shirts, but I got a few from the spring and summer line to try out, and I love them!
My favorite shirt they sell is the gray football tee. It’s pretty simple, just the star logo on the front and a football with the words “Southern Goods” on the back. But I love the color, because it matches with everything! I’ve been wearing this everywhere, whether I’m running around in it at soccer practice or putting it under a pullover to go eat supper. I definitely recommend washing this shirt separately before you ever wear it. I didn’t think to do this, and I regret it. After I took it off, there were all of these gray streaks on my skin. Definitely wash before you wear. Looking back on the website, it clearly says “it is best to wash separately before wearing”. Wow. Didn’t even see that!
This holiday season, everyone is making lists, decorating, visiting family, and making lots of yummy food. While all of those things are very fun to do, there is a much bigger meaning behind Christmas. Some people don’t have enough money for Christmas presents or Christmas dinner. Others might be cold and without heat or blankets during the winter. There are so many things to do this holiday season to give back to your community.
Even though it’s already over a week into December, there are a few things that I really want to get done this month! These are things I haven’t done before or want to try before the year is over. New Year’s isn’t that far away, so now is the last chance before the end of 2015! My December bucket list:
There’s less than a month until Christmas 2015! How exciting is that? Time sure has gone by fast, and hopefully these next few weeks of school will zip by. Then, it’ll finally be time for family, travel, presents, and fun this holiday! Read on to discover how to get ready for the upcoming season. If this won’t get you in the holiday spirit, I don’t know what will!
1. Make a Christmas List. No surprise there. Making a Christmas list of all of your most- wanted items is a must. This year, make it a bit more fun. Make a Pinterest board of your wishlist, that way you can have the links and pictures to everything you want. It’s easy to send the link to family and friends if they need any ideas. It’s also fun to make lists on what you’re going to get everyone else in your family. Having everything neat and organized makes it all the more enjoyable.
Now that the holidays are drawing closer and closer, it’s time to bring out the lists. One list of all your wants this holiday season, and one list for all your family and friends’ wants this holiday season. Having trouble thinking of things to ask for/give? Check out these holiday gift guides!
