Good Morning!  This weekend, we’ll be in full holiday mode – wrapping, shopping, baking, and tying up all of our loose holiday ends.  We just cannot believe that Christmas is just a week away, so it’s actually going to be more like, “holiday hustle mode.”  If you’re in the same boat, you’re in luck – for today’s Favorite Friday, we’re putting together a guide to checking off your holiday to-do list!


If you still have shopping to do…

The Revel Group’s Holiday Gift Guide – This is the BEST gift guide we’ve seen all year. Not only is this guide put together so beautifully, but our Revel friends found the best, most original gifts and we are obsessed!

Our Gift Guide for the Baker & Guide for the Girl on the Go – You’ll definitely find something here for the hostess or your BFFs!

Another favorite from one of our vendor pals – Amanda Megan Miller’s Holiday Gift Guide “for gals like me” is ADORABLE and so perfect!


Some gift wrapping inspiration…

This infographic on tips for planning a holiday party from our friends at Blue Plate is both adorable and very helpful!


If you still have to bake a batch of Christmas cookies…

Our virtual cookie exchange from 2013 is an oldie but still a goodie!

We’re loving all of these recipes from the Glitter Guide team!


And if you don’t know what to wear to the rest of your holiday shindigs…
