I live watching the joy this brings them as they aren’t allowed to do their tree at home 😄

  5. I love inviting all my girlfriends over for a jammies/Christmas movie/spiked hot chocolate night! It’s nice to just hang in and spend some quality time together. My husband and I always watch Elf and decorate our tree together too 🙂 both really make my heart happy around the holidays!

  6. What I like to do during holidays may not be an activity but it is an experince I always look forward to. Do you know the feeling when you are getting into your car, your radio turns on and they are playing holiday songs? I always have on a radio station that does that 24/7 during that time. No matter the weather, time of the day, if I am alone in the car or not it is the warmest and most uplifting feeling. So much is happening behind the window and I am grateful for all of it.

It’s hard to narrow it down to *one* favorite thing – something we always did growing up was once Thanksgiving dinner and football was over, we’d put in the movie White Christmas and get out all the Christmas decor and watch White Christmas while decorating all together as a family.

  15. As kids we used to travel far to see family on Christmas Day so my mom used to tell us Santa would swing by when we were at my grandmothers for Xmas eve dinner because he knew we were traveling super early in the morning and wanted us to enjoy our presents. To this day my immediate family gathers on Christmas Eve, just the 4 of us, with our matching PJs from my mom — we sit by the tree with a firing burning and we all open our presents. It’s nice to be able to have family time like even when I’m now 30 and live on my own. Nothing like taking a trip back to childhood, even once a year 🙂

  16. My favorite Holiday Tradition is to get together with my family, make Christmas Cookies, blast Christmas Music, put all the decorations up. Especially all the ornaments from when I was a kid. Then afterwards light the fire place and put on Christmas movies and just spend quality time with everyone.

  35. There’s so many things I love to do for the holidays, it’s just so hard to pick one favorite. One special tradition that I cherish each year is the days spent cooking with my Dad to prepare his infamous Christmas Eve dinner made for family and friends to share. The meal is mad of 14 of more courses of polish treats from multiple handmade pierogis to holiday salads and sauerkraut and peas (sounds awful but tastes so good) and halibut and so much more. There’s too many cookies and candy cane ice cream, poppyseed cake and more to top it all off for desert. The time spent watching Christmas movies, listening to Christmas music and enjoying such a loving act preparing Christmas Eve dinner for 30 to 40 of our family members and friends is something so special to share with the man that taught me everything.

  36. My favorite thing to do on the holidays is simply spend time with my kids. The are all grown up an living in different cities than me so I treasure the times we can spend together!

  37. Love this giveaway! So cozy! I looooove going on a date with my honey to go look at the Christmas lights all over town!

  38. I haven’t had much time to come up with a favorite thing to do over the holidays. I was always at work really. I worked retail and then I was a caregiver. I’m working in an office setting now. Hot chocolate, snuggles with my little boy, and holiday movies is something I’d like to get into. 🙂

  39. My favorite part of the holidays is COOKIES! I have a big Italian family, and my grandma is the greatest cook in the world. During the holidays, my brothers, cousins and I all go to her house for the day to bake cookies together. We bake tons of recipes and dozens of cookies. It’s such an awesome way for her to pass down her recipes and traditions to us, while also creating a day full of memories, with laughs, countless glasses of wine and full bellies of grandma’s best!

  43. AH! This blankie has been on my wish list FOR.EV.ER! Ok, so favorite thing to do at Christmas…it is so hard to narrow it down to just one! I think it’s a toss up between three…1) we pick one night each year to surprise the boys–we tell them to get into their jammies and we load up in the car with hot cocoa and popcorn (dinner!) and we drive all around looking at the beautiful lights. 2) My hubby proposed on a sleigh ride in this adorable mountain town just before Christmas. Afterwards we picked out a sleigh ornament at cute Christmas store so now we go back every year and pick one out that represents something special that happened that year. And 3) Singing at Christmas Eve service. Brings me to tears every damn time. All the feels!

  47. My favorite thing to do during the holidays is curl up on the couch with my puppies (I have 5, so they have to take turns lol) and watch all the holiday movies.

I love doing that with her and hope to do the same when I have children.

  48. Love this gift guide!!! Gives me all the cozy feels 🙂

We have big big family so lots of gatherings.

    My favorite holiday traditions are all about making memories. We’ve always taken our kids and driven through the neighborhoods to look at lights. Every Christmas Eve the kids open their x-mad jammies, always acting like they have no idea what’s in the box. Baking and decorating ugly sweater cookies. Christmas morning is always cinnamon rolls. This is the last year that I’ll likely have my three kids and now son-in-law and granddaughter with us for Christmas.

  76. When I was little, around 15 family members would gather at my Dad’s house on Christmas Eve. The year before we all pick a name out of a hat and don’t tell anyone. We have a whole year to MAKE that person a special gift. We have to get super creative and it’s so meaningful. When it’s our turn to give our gift, we get fun with it and go up to another person (having them think it’s for them) and then turn and say “no not yours” lol and then end up giving the person we made the gift for “the special gift”. Everyone is so excited to see what we made.

    Oh and my mom turned vegan this year and she’s making a TOFURKY . Wish us luck lol

  77. My whole family lives in different states, so we come together in one to spend the holidays together. Christmas Eve is the night of Christmas movie watching, everyone makes their favorite appetizers and we just hangout. Christmas Eve is my favorite. We wake up Christmas morning and watch my niece and nephew open their gifts while listening to Christmas music. We have a special casserole of some sort for Christmas morning and then it is playing with the new toys and watching yet another Christmas movie with the family! Everyone got the stomach bug a couple of years back, so that went down in the record book for sure!

    Happy holidays everyone!

  78. I love getting the family in our Christmas jammies, making hot chocolate and popcorn and driving around looking for Christmas lights. We called it the polar express when they were younger now they are 15,14 and 12 and still want to do this. We add Christmas lights belt music and generally laugh our asses off. This blanket would be like a giant hug and could also protect me from Monday’s.

Kids snuggle too and we read. It’s such a blessed and peaceful time! Enjoy your sweet baby! I had my middle son the day after Thanksgiving and it was amazing to be able to enjoy him with all the lights and Christmas decor! Made those late night feedings the best! ❤️👶🏻🌲

  154. My boys are spread out now, graduated, in college, in high school so it’s great having them all home for the holiday…until the football games happen in my Living room! bodies flopped everywhere, excessive eating and drinking, long hikes, drives around the lake. At somepoint, I usually find a hiding spot in between meals while the dishwasher is running so I can just listen to my big boys reconnect after months apart. sure there are Gifts and things, but reconnections after months apart is the best part of the holidays!

I feel a little closer in my heart to my grandmas who are no longer with us by putting out and watching my littles now enjoy their favorite holiday pieces!! Every year my mom and I to this day put out my grandmas holiday village. We have over 20 houses now and it takes hours to set up and get perfect. I’m praying god sends me a little girl of my own to share some of these traditions with. That time spent under the twinkling lights snuggling my kiddos and hubs is always some of my most precious. Seeing my loved ones be so happy really just lights up my world. I hope this season brings love, new adventure and of course a healthy happy little boy wrapped in a bow for under your tree!!

  159. I absolutely love the holidays! There are so many traditions that we look forward to doing every year. I always take the kids to see the lights at “Christmas in the Park”. People travel here from everywhere to see the 100s of displays at Chief Logan State Park. The kids love helping me decorate! They each have their own tree that they can decorate anyway that want. We always make cookies and reindeer food to leave out for Santa and his reindeers. One of the best parts is going to my grandmothers for Christmas Eve. We have a huge Italian style dinner and all our friends and family come to eat, laugh, and reminisce around the fire.

  209. Hey girl!! Counting down the days until baby boy Dixon arrives!! So excited and happy for you!

    So the holidays have been bittersweet for me. It used to be my favorite holiday growing up. My family would go all out with decor, food, friends, gifts, all the holiday classic tunes with Kenny G, Luther, Mariah, and Celine blaring on the stereo. Then my parents went through a nasty divorce while I was in high school and our first holiday as a divorced family was awful, we didn’t even get a tree.

    Every year after that I made it a point to not care about Christmas. I’m a nurse now and I’ve purposely worked the holiday. And I honestly hated Christmas until about 4 years ago. My now fiancé and I had been dating for 2 years and we had just moved in together. It was our first Christmas as a couple and his first Christmas in general! Ever since then we’ve started our own traditions. We go to the local farm, pick our tree have cider donuts and drink hot cocoa. we play holiday tunes and decorate our tree and just enjoy each other’s company.

    I’m now back in love with the holiday season as we’ve started our own traditions and I couldn’t be any happier! looking forward to this holiday season as it’s our last as an engaged couple because we get married in May! Yayyy!

Some years buying a lot of stuff and other years just going for the excitement and to spend time together. I enjoy shopping for friends, family members, and strangers trying to get each a perfect thoughtful gift. Our local church has little paper ornaments with children’s names, age and hobbies…those are the gifts I splurge on knowing I’m going to make someone’s Christmas wishes and dreams come true.

  261. I live across the country from my family now but my favorite thing we do is a “Christmas Tree Hunt”. We cut down a real tree every year and it was always a big debate as to who picked the best tree. We always have a family boil up (fire and hot chocolate in the woods). We’ve been doing it since we were babies so there are years of hilarious home video footage too. I join over FaceTime now but it’s not quite the same! Starting to make new traditions as this is our second year away for the holidays and it will be our first Christmas in our new home and first as newlyweds.

    Absolutely love following along with you – thank you for all the inspiration and tips ♥️

  263. Mrs. Clause here!

    ‘Tis the Season for several of our Christmas Traditions! Our first one is to visit The Edison Ford Winter Estates.

I guess if I had to pick one thing it would be the cherished family time on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Just being all cozy in matching pjs Lounging around all day together. Playing with new Santa toys , making holiday dinner and watching my favorite the Christmas story with a hot cup of hot coco .

Seeing Christmas through the eyes of my daughter is so precious. I truly feel blessed !! Happy holidays 🎄.

    • Hello!

      My favorite thing to do around the holidays is teach my daughter the real meaning of Christmas. We get so caught up in talking about how blessed we are, what we are expecting or how much money we spent that while that’s awesome for some families , let’s not forget it can be hard on others this time is year. We try to donate, give back and and always instill in her it’s about giving and not always receiving. It’s about quality time and traditions and not about how many gifts are under the tree with your name on it. I use this holiday in particular to educated my daughter on kindness and giving. Thank you!

  360. My favorite thing to do is travel! My birthday is Christmas Eve and it’s the best birthday present to get away!

  361. Going to someone else’s house for holiday dinner and NOT having to do any dishes


  362. Favorite thing to do during the holidays is soak in that extra family bonding time and bake with my mother and daughter ❤️
    This gift guide is so helpful and I am obsessed with your decor! So good 🤗thanks for all you do!

  363. You’re the greatest! Love your page. My favorite thing to do during the holiday season is drink hot Chocolate and watch cheesy Christmas movies!

  364. Thank you for this gift guide 🙌🏻🙌🏻 My favorite thing to do during the holidays is cozy up by a fire with a warm drink and watch Christmas movies!

    • I love to go over my family home and eat. We love to sleep over and wake up and eat again together. I don’t get to see them to often so I love being with them for 2 -3 days.

  365. This gift guide is amazing! I just found some perfect gifts for my family and friends. Thanks, Kasey!

    So I’m 27 years old, and still to this day, my favorite thing we do during the holidays, specifically Christmas Eve, is we all go to my parent’s house to spend the night. I have three siblings, and we have significant others, so it’s a pretty full house. We get to open one gift, and it’s always matching pajamas that we’re required to wear all-day on Christmas! This has been a really fun tradition ever since I can remember. When we were all younger, not only were we required to wear our PJs, but we weren’t allowed to go anywhere on Christmas Day. We were able to spend all day together and enjoy the holiday. 🙂 Although it’s more challenging to do now that we’re all older, I know this is a tradition I’ll continue when kids come into play.

    Wishing everyone a happy and fun-filled holiday season!

    • My family does the same thing!! It’s so nice to spend that quality time together and to feel like a kid again, especially while rocking PJs all day!! 🙂

  366. LOVE your picks. My favorite thing to do around the holidays is our annual cookie baking weekend the ladies in my family have every year. We take turns hosting and baking our favorite Christmas cookies together. So fun.

  367. I love that the hospital 👩🏻‍⚕️is slower around the holidays so I can be home with the the kiddos and my firefighter 👨🏻‍🚒 hubby! I’m blessed to be able to visit my friends and family that I love🎅🏻🎄🎁🙌🏻
    Xoxo Sarah

    • My favourite thing to do is to just stop and appreciate life: friends, family, being together, Christmas music, tree decorating, great movies, sharing with others, holiday parties. The craziness of life stops for a little while and everyone enjoys what’s important!!

    • Love this gift guide! My favorite thing to do during the holidays is go to my dads house with my fiancé and brother and sister in law. We always eat good home cooked meals, drink wine and play games/watch movies. It’s just so relaxing and fun! I also love how my dad goes above & beyond when decorating for Christmas so I love how it’s a winter wonderland(well as close as you can get in TX) when we go over there. Really just puts me in the best mood!

  368. Hey Kasey….

    loving your holiday ideas. My favorite thing to do over the holidays is to escape Sant Monica and go to my home in Ketchum and spend the holidays with family and friends there. Love walking around in the cold weather and taking in all the beautiful lights around town, going to The Wine Company for a glass of wine and then Christmas shopping….. It truly is my HAPPY place, but especially at Christmas.
    Happy Holidays!!!!

    • Hi Kasey!

      My favorite thing to do during the holidays are EAT, decorate, spend time with family and then eat some more! Haha! The holidays are just so cheery and ignite a spark in most to be happy and kind! ❤️

    • I teach a lot of kids who are homeless so I love to buy a bunch of decorations for my classroom. This year I’ve definitely been inspired by your Christmas decorations and have gone with a more rustic buffalo print theme with my classroom decor for the kids to use. Then the week before thanksgiving break each class period has a task to come up with how they want to decorate a certain aspect of my classroom. The kids are really appreciative and say the room feels so much warmer and homier. We even decorate the outside of my door to spread the holiday cheer! We then (before Christmas break) exchange a positive and encouraging message to one another; sort of like secret Santa but free. There’s nothing like making their holidays even just slightly better.

    • My favorite thing to do during the holidays is bake and cook delish food with family and friends. AND DECORATING! It’s my favorite part.

    • The thing I love to do the most is decorate our tree all together. My kids are grown but we still do it every year. Fire place and snacks and laughter.

    • My favorite holiday tradition is getting together with the ladies in my family and baking sweet treats for the season! After our baking we snuggle in and watch the original Grinch – this knit blanket would be the perfect snuggle addition!

    • I love snuggling up to watch Christmas movies! My husband and I just bought our first house and will be creating new traditions now! 🙂 as well you with your new baby!

    • My favorite thing to do during the holidays is to spend time with my family and enjoy all the Christmas lights, decorations, movies, and yummy food❤️ …Hallmark channel is life!!!

    • My fav thing to do during the holidays besides decorate is be cozy af and bake allllllll the things. First holiday season pregnant and eating has now become a new holiday tradition 😂

    • Omg you are the SWEETEST. Thank you for doing these special give aways and writing amazing blogs and gift guides. You’re my hero during the holiday season! My favorite thing to do during the holidays is bake cookies with my mama💓 I moved away almost 2 years ago and we still make it our top priority! We make everything from Italian cookies, almond cookies, cut outs and peanut butter blossoms and we watch Hallmark, Freeform and HGTV ONLY😍 Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy and cannot wait to see your little guy!💕

    • Love your gift guide and all your Christmas inspo. My favorite thing to do during the holidays would be to get into cozy Christmas PJs, bake some delish cookies with the kids and sit on the couch covered in cozy warm blankets watching Christmas movies and sipping on some hot chocolate. It would be extra special if it would be snowing outside.

    • So stoked for this GIVEAWAY! My favorite thing to do during the holidays is a two-way tie; E A T I N G and watching people open their gifts. I love food! And I love to see the joy on people’s faces when they’re opening gifts. 😍

    • Hi Kasey! My favorite thing to do on the holidays is be together. My husband is a physician which means he is often working holidays. When he happens to have the holiday off and we can be together with our young boys and create these early memories of what holidays are ..it means the world to me! Seeing the joy in our toddler to sit by a warm fire and open presents is so fun. This year we get to witness our soon to be one year old experience Christmas!

    • I love starting a fire in our wood burning fire place, cuddling up with my hubs & watching movies! & of course eating some yummy snacks 😏 gotta feed this baby bump!

      • LOVE everything you share! Thank you! One of our very fav things is going to Rhema Bible School. They have millions of lights on display and it’s so magical to walk through and look at all of them. Also watching all of our fav Christmas movies – Tom & Jerry Nutcracker, Christmas Family Vacation, Elf, Home Alone, & Grinch just to name a few at the top of our list. Plus, decorating gingerbread houses AND most of all spending time with family! Happy Holidays to you and yours!

    • My favorite thing to do during the holidays is to have a “Special Xmas week”. My husband and I started the tradition and now my 2 year old son loves it (so far). He enjoys participating in all the events. So every day we do something special to celebrate the week (take the polar express to North Pole, decorate cookies, decorate gingerbread houses, make new annual ornaments, etc). Every night we do something fun and generally play Xmas music or a Xmas movie! Makes it even more cozy and allows us to not rush directly to Xmas.

    • The thing DURING THE HOLIDAYS I look forward to and LOVE the MOST is GETTING ready for my kids to come home. Comfy guest rooms, fluffy towels and cooking all of their favorite things!! 🎅🏻 🎄🥰 love getting ideas from you and your beautiful home too!!

    • Omg!!! This Xmas is going to be amazing because, drum roll please…my daughter and I are moving into a new home that my boyfriend and I bought and he just asked my dad permission to propose. So…we are just a tad bit excited for this holiday season! We will be decorating with all the tips and styles Kasey shares. I’ve got about 70% of her top 10 gifts in my home already! Ready for more to make this the BEST season EVERRRRR♥️🎄🌟

        • Your home is my dream home – layout, decor, vibe, location, ALL OF IT is spot on!
          Our family has a tradition of bundling up in winter fear and and venturing into the forest with a thermos of hot chocolate to find our perfect real Christmas tree. Once found, we sit around it and drink our hot cocoa and share our favorite memories of the year before cutting it down and hauling it off the mountain! Memorable family time and we look forward to EVERY SINGLE YEAR! This blanket would be so cozy and warm to come home to after after this day on mountain. 🎅🏻 🌲 ❄️ ☕️

        • My favorite thing to do during the holiday season is to bake a bunch of goodies and send them out to my family members, especially my little brother. Baking was something I would do with my mom and grandma as a kid, and they are both celebrating Christmas up in Heaven. So baking holds a special meaning to me.

          • My favorite thing to do this holiday is to surround myself with my favorite people …. bake and cook most delicious food for them …. and enjoy the holiday season

    • My favorite thing to do during the holidays is to take a trip to St. Augustine (we live about an hour and a half away near Orlando) and walk through the old part of the city seeing the lights and shop fronts all decorated. You can also walk along the waterfront and see all of the sail boats in the harbor decorated and lit up. Its truly MAGICAL!

      • Loving this post! But my favorite thing to do for the holidays… honestly everything! I’m obsessed! Baking cookies, buying presents for friends and family, listening Christmas music, decorating… haha I could go on. Can’t wait to see all of your amazing holiday decor!

      • All time fav christmas activity is to go around and look at Christmas lights while blasting some christmas tunes and drinking lots of hot cocoa. ❤⛄❄🎄🎅

        • Love spending time with our families, but especially making magical Christmas memories for my two kids. *Being* Santa is way more fun than getting any gift from him 😉

      • This would look awsome in my bedroom, I am all about cozy. I am retiring in 4 days,I will be able to cozy in for the winter. Good luck with baby!!!

      • My favorite holiday tradition in Cleveland is to take a Lolly the Trolley tour seeing all the beautiful Xmas lights and stopping at the Christmas Story House!

      • My favorite thing to do during the holidays is bake cookies with my moms entire side of the family! It’s been a tradition going on for decades.

        • My favorite tradition… hmmm. How do you choose? It is a time full of all things wonderful, am I right?? I suppose it would have to be cooking and baking for the MANY gatherings we attend for family and friends. While I love the time spent with family, there is something so joyful and rewarding in creating food others will enjoy. The end result, happy family and friends, makes the work so worth it!

        • I love sledding and drinking hot chocolate in front of the fireplace while wearing fuzzy socks with my hubby and dogs 💕

          • My FAVORITE thing to do is on Christmas Eve we ALL (cousins too) pile on the sofa to snuggle up and read one Christmas story and patiently wait for Santa to “pop in” Santa aka my father in law;) As the kids have aged they have started to read the stories to the rest of the family❤️When we hear the bells clanking on the roof we know it’s go time. Papa is dressed in Full Santa gear! We have done this since our kiddos were born…..My boys and my nephews are all a little older older now but the excitement still fills the air in the entire house. Santa passes out one small gift to each kiddos and chats with them. A tradition that will be passed on and on to a the kiddos❤️
            Thank you for allowing me to share ☺️
