Did everyone survive Black Friday and Cyber Monday? I need my readers safe and in tact! I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday and ate until you couldn’t tell the difference between any of the foods you were eating anymore (that may have just been me). It’s December 1st, so now I can finally talk about the Holidays without a twinge of guilt for infringing on any other holiday’s placement!I know I say I love every holiday already, but guys, I really love the Christmas and the Holiday season. I love Christmas songs, especially if they’re sung by horribly dressed band boys of the 90s or Mariah Carey. I love Christmas shopping and trying to find the perfect gift. I love Christmas parties with cookies or cake. I love the new Christmas menu at Starbucks. I love having a valid excuse to drink copious amounts of hot cocoa with mini marshmallows. I’ll probably be answering my phone as “Buddy the Elf, what’s your favorite color?” and then watching every Christmas special on TV. I’ll definitely end up watching the full marathon of A Christmas Story on TBS, after I’ve sat through an almost annoying amount of viewings for Home Alone 1 & 2, Charlie Brown, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Muppet’s Christmas Carol, Gremlins, Love Actually, Babes in Toyland (most likely the horrendously hilarious remake with Keanu Reeves), a good classic like It’s A Wonderful Life or Miracle on 34th Street, am I leaving anything else out? (Scrooged was already on this week, so that’s only one movie out of a million left for me…) Oh! And sledding, ice skating, volunteering, and donations! Just finishing my mental check list for this month
Of course, I have to prioritize, so insane list of Christmas activities will have to wait for a second. This first week is all about Christmas decorations for me. I’ll be getting out the snowman cookie jar, red table mats, my sad little table sized Peanut’s Christmas tree, an unnecessary amount of lights, and of course I’m sure I’ll be finding tinsel on me for the next 3 weeks. Our Holiday gifts section will probably come into play at my house, seeing as our gift baskets are both food and cute holiday decorations all rolled into one (bow tied) package!
I know my mom is going to like the Regal Drum Gift Tower, filled with Harry London® chocolate treats inside. An 1800Baskets.com Exclusive, this charming and festive gift set is perfect for quick decoration with yummy gifts inside, like milk chocolate covered pretzels, mint chocolates, chocolate covered grahams, and more! We also have the beautiful Festive Red Holiday Sleigh Gift Basket, a holiday must-have of chocolates, pretzels, snacks, and sweets all delivered in a solid sleigh basket!
I have a few hours of shopping in Target and Pier 1 ahead of me, so in the comments section (1-2 paragraphs) tell me some of your Holiday decorations or things you’re excited for! You can even quote your favorite holiday movies to me and I’ll be happy! FIVE lucky winners will receive the Regal Drum Gift Tower!
