Christmas is in 44 Days! The Countdown is ON!!!!!

One of my favorite things about the Christmas season is all the parties. Oh, and the decorating. AND, the gifts. Christmas is one big celebration and the season truly is merry and bright.

But, it's so easy to get lost in all the craziness of this most wonderful  busy time of the year. You begin to dread another Christmas party, get stressed when your house does NOT resemble Pinterest and go on a mad Christmas dash faster than Santa and his reindeers to finish up your shopping just days before Christmas Eve (and then you stay up until midnight to get all these presents wrapped and under the tree...am I right?!).

I don't believe this is the way we are supposed to feel. Christmas has gotten so hyped up and we've lost our focus on why we celebrate in the first place. Christmas is a time to reflect and rejoice, not a time to be exhausted.

To help you (and me!) have a very merry Christmas, Hallmark has some great Christmas items for celebrating.

In just one stop, you can pick up items for your home, Christmas parties, and gifts that need to be wrapped. Take a look at a few of my favorite things in this quick video:

The "Cheer" Christmas pillow is staying at my house this year! I've been searching for some affordable yet cute pillows to spruce up my home and this pillow was less than $15. I love the varsity feel to it and it just makes me happy.

The snowman candy cane dish is so cute and it's already packaged for your Dirty Santa gift!  This would be so fun to put in your kitchen with some peppermints and I think it is a great dish for a family with young kids.

When it comes to wrapping gifts, I like to have a mix of bags and boxes. I love the rustic feel of Hallmark's Christmas Tree tissue paper. It goes perfect with a simple brown bag (and these cute Christmas tags that can be found in our Etsy shop!) as a gift-on-the-go.

Or, you can wrap with this traditional Christmas plaid wrapping paper. It's even double-sided so you can have coordinating Christmas gifts. So fun! This wrapping paper is half the size of regular wrapping paper so I'd recommend using it on smaller gifts.

Today, to kick off the Christmas season (and to help you not stress about your holiday parties) I'm giving away this snowman candy dish!
