Your Holiday Resource Guide
December is a month of holiday celebrations…and a month of craziness. Between making sure work gets done before you’re out of the office, confirming that everyone on your list has a gift, decorating, cooking, traveling, and hosting friends and family, it’s hard to find time to do it all. Our gift to you this holiday season is a list of holiday resources that can help you check off a few boxes on your to-do list – think easy appetizers and desserts, entertainment ideas, and even some last-minute gift options!
Delight your guests with these easy (and adorable) festive foods:
Sometimes, all you need is the right question and you’ll get to hear a wonderful story (and get to know someone better). Ask questions and have each person around the table answer. What’s the best gift you’ve ever received? If you could invite 5 people to a holiday party, who would it be and why? What is your favorite holiday memory? Or pick up a festive conversation game, like this one.
Tell your guests in advance if you’re playing this gift-exchange game. Everyone brings a wrapped gift, usually within a specific price range. Randomly determine which order participants will go in, and the first chooses their gift. As the game continues, each person has the choice to either unwrap a new present or to steal another’s.
Whether it’s for a White Elephant gift exchange or someone you didn’t originally have on your shopping list, sometimes last-minute presents are a necessity. What’s easy to buy, and still thoughtful?
A subscription box. There’s an abundance of these to choose from, and subscriptions based on your budget, so pick according to your recipient’s interests and they’ll receive a gift from you every month! Choose from wine clubs, beauty boxes, food and snack subscriptions, even clothes – see a list of subscription boxes here.
Tis the season for giving, and giving back. Watch the clip below to see how giving is better than receiving, then check out our blog post to see how you can do your part this month.
