HOWEVER, I have amazing childhood memories of Christmastime, and I've decided that this year, for the sake of my children, I will immerse myself in the Christmas spirit! Scrooge, be gone! Oh, the Avants will be caroling, having tea with Santa, seeing The Nutcracker, and making gingerbread houses (well, we'll decorate them, but we will not attempt to build one…ever…again).
To make sure I get (and stay) in a festive mood, I've been admiring all kinds of holiday goodies from recipes to decor to gifts to party dresses. I think I'll share some of my favorites with you this week. Let's start with some gift ideas for friends, hostesses, teachers, and loved ones!
|West Elm, $39|
|Graceful Gatherings Cookbook, $19.95|
|Sweet Bella Bakery|
There are so many more great gift ideas, but I have to get off the computer now and bake something with my son. Ho, ho, ho!
What are your favorite gifts to give?
