The fireplace is often the heart of the home during the holidays. Ours isn’t actually a working fireplace, so while I can’t cozy up by the fire with hot cocoa and a warm blanket, I can still make it the focal point of our holiday decor. I went to Pier 1 Imports to pick up a few pieces to transform our mantel from drab to fab with the help of their unique offerings. They have something for everyone’s personal style with endless creative possibilities.
Okay, next up is my gift guide for kids! Trying to find toys for everyone to enjoy can be a little tricky, especially because kid’s interests and abilities tend to change so quickly. And because I don’t really have the bandwidth this year to break the gift guides down by age, I thought I’d share with you the top twelve toys on my girls holiday wish list. They are almost 4 and 6 so they’re at a great age to enjoy toys that can work for a little younger and have toys to grow in to for the older set.

‘Tis the season when the kids are off of school, family is in town, or you’re traveling during the busiest and most stressful time of the year to be with your loved ones. It’s been my experience that trying to keep the kids engaged and somewhat close to their regular routine helps our holidays go much smoother. Luckily, we’ve been using our Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Tablet for a few months now and it’s the perfect companion to help the girls get in the holiday spirit and stay challenged and involved during the holiday season.
One of my favorite traditions is filling up the Christmas stockings. I remember always saving my stocking for last as a kid and loving those little presents the best. As I grew up, I remember my mom filling them with extra toothbrushes, razor heads, and underwear (all the stuff you hate to buy but have to in your 20’s) and it was also the best. So today, I’m sharing a few of my favorite stocking stuffers for the whole family!
The stockings are hung, the tree is decorated, presents are being wrapped, and just like that, the holidays are here! We celebrate both Hanukkah and Christmas in our house, so there are a lot of different celebrations going on during the month of December including our own Fritsch Family Annual Holiday Party! So today, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite holiday party outfits for you to wear to your next holiday celebration. Click through for more holiday party outfit inspo!
