My Favorite Christmas Things

December 15, 2017

As you may have gathered, I love Christmas. Not putting-up-the-tree-in-October level love but it just gives me all of the feels. I wanted to do something a little different today and share a bunch of my Christmas favorites from songs to food to gifts!

Favorite song: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas by Frank Sinatra. I do love a bunch of other versions of this song as well but this is my very favorite. Here are a few of the runner-ups:

This Christmas by Jeffrey Osborne
O Holy Night by Lea Michele 
White Christmas by Otis Redding
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays by N'Sync
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas by Sam Smith
I'll Be Home For Christmas by Leslie Odom Jr. 
Wrapped in Red by Kelly Clarkson 
This is Christmas by Luther Vandross
Favorite PJs: This year it's definitely these Christmas dog ones (top found here + bottoms here)! My all time favorites were a Target pair from several years ago that had snowmen skiing on candy canes. You just can't top that. I wear them every Christmas morning now! Here are some of my other favorite cozy options this year:
Favorite movie: So hard to pick but I think I'd have to go with Love Actually. It's just so heartwarming and British and the soundtrack is 💯
Favorite Tradition: My favorite tradition that my family would do growing up was switching the radio over to Christmas music on the drive home from Thanksgiving dinner. Kind of random but I loved that moment where the Christmas season officially started. I think my new favorite tradition is going to be bringing Louie home to Minnesota with us for the holidays. We did it last year and while it was stressful it was so fun to have him there. We're doing it again this year so wish us luck because flying with a dog is no picnic. 
Favorite gift: When I was young my Grandma got my sister, my cousin and I Add a Pearl necklaces. Basically it started as a necklace with one tiny pearl and then every year she'd get us another one. My Grandma has since passed away but my mom still gets my sister and I new pearls every year. The necklace is so close to being full and I just know it's going to be something I'll love forever.
Favorite festive accessory: Definitely these earrings! I got them on Black Friday and am obsessed. I asked for them in more colors for Christmas. 
Favorite food: My aunt is an amazing baker and she makes some of my favorite Christmas cookies every year. The best, IMO, are my Grandma's gingerbread recipe and these peanut butter chocolate ball things. #delish
I'd love to know what your favorite Christmas things are! In general I just love the cozy, happy feeling I get when I think about Christmas as a whole. I love the snow (it's magic), the lights, the yummy food and spending time with family. Beyond excited to head home next week!

Have a great weekend!
