It’s December. How did it get to be December already? With the holidays just around the corner, a Mount Everest of shopping, baking, wrapping and cleaning to be climbed.
I’m not really a Scrooge. I love all that stuff. Mostly. BUT, you do need a few essentials to see you through to the end game.
- Holiday Music (all kinds)
To be blasted and used indiscriminately when doing any holiday activity
- Vodka, so you can make truly awesome Caesars
To be enjoyed after all that cleaning. Or wrapping. Or baking. But especially after any type of shopping excursion.
- A great gingerbread men recipe
What are the holidays without gingerbread?
- The movie Love Actually or The Holiday
My favs! What are yours?
- Cozy blankets and hot chocolate (or hot apple cider) (or wine)
Needed for late night relaxation sessions after shopping, wrapping, or baking marathons
- The right tape
Do not underestimate the importance of this one. It can make or break a gift wrapping session.
But most of all, A BIG STACK OF BOOKS! Nothing distracts from the craziness of the holidays like curling up with a book and escaping into the pages.
