Decorating for Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. Each year, I love to do a slightly different color theme or style, and I love buying new stuff on sale after the holiday and refinding it the next season! This year, I kept the look more simple and classic Christmas with mostly neutrals a few pops of red and a lot of greenery. I like to spread the decor throughout my house so there is a little something in each room.

Ever since I used my first real Christmas tree a few years ago, I never want to go back to faux. They are kind of a mess, but there’s just something about a real tree that feels more special (and you can’t recreate the smell!).

It’s the gift-giving time of year! This time of year can bring a lot of joy, but also a lot of stress over what to give people and sticking to your budget. The hype of holiday deals can get the best of us, but I try to stay focused by writing down a list and budget for my gift giving.
I’ve also found it helps to ignore the sales and deals and give gifts that the person will truly use and enjoy. Why buy someone a bunch of stuff just because it was on sale? If you find something great that happens to be on sale, that’s an even better find!
See below for my 2018 Holiday Gift Guide of beautiful and useful gifts. I tried to pull things that were special at all price points so there is something for every budget. Happy shopping!
