Sometime around the middle of December, holiday prep begins to feel a full-time job. As much as we love the hustle and bustle of decorating, catching up with friends and family, and shopping for our loved ones, it does get exhausting.
So as not to get burnt out by the all holiday build-up, we make sure to schedule some time to simply relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of the season that we love so much.
Our favorite way of soaking up all of the special things this time of year brings is to sit inside by a warm fire, enjoying the holiday decorations that we’ve put up around the house. We take this relaxation time seriously because we want to get the most out of it. And, since we want the same for you, we’ve put together our top must-haves for slowing down and staying calm in the midst of the holiday craziness.
To begin with, we recommend a festive blanket to curl up in. Our Holiday Fan Shell Sparkle Blanket is this year’s go-to. Its calm colors remind us of a peaceful winter’s night, and the subtle shimmer of the blanket gives it that extra something special that this time of year is all about.
We also like to keep a glass of champagne close at hand. It’s a much-needed and hard earned treat this time of year, and paired with a gourmet chocolate or a favorite cookie recipe, it makes an evening of pure relaxation feel even more indulgent.
Time alone with nothing to do is a luxury this time of year, so when we do it, we like to do it right. A special blanket, something bubbly to sip on and something sweet to nibble is guaranteed to help us relax and reset, so we can enjoy the rest of what the season has to offer.
