If you really want to take your accessory game seriously this year, please look to these gorgeous, and very practical chains for your AirPods. Once you get over the irony that you’re adding a chain to something that was once advanced in technology to no longer require a wire, you’ll be on board. You’ll also stop dropping them, so that’s a big win.
You know what, I don’t even care if I don’t wear it a ton this season, I want this absolutely perfect blazer in my closet, forever. It’s a single-breasted blazer in a luscious olive shade, with gold button detailing. Also, it's a casual 40% off right now. The cut is perfect, the quality impeccable, someone please text Rich and tell him this IS my Christmas list, k?
For those doing solo or duo Thanksgivings, which is so many of us, I really love this festive take on Thanksgiving dinner. (Or lunch, it’s your house, your schedule, make it Thanksgiving breakfast if you want! Go crazy.) This is a right-sized approach to festive dining, that doesn’t feel even the slightest bit like a consolation-prize. Honestly, I’d eat that honey butter roasted turkey any day of the year.
These are SO SMART! They are table linens that can be used as placemats or napkins (or both!) and they look so pretty in person. They’re such a step up from paper, but you can just toss them afterward, and they’re completely biodegradable! There are COUNTLESS styles and colors to choose from, so these will work with any tablescape.
Alright, it’s time you knew. I don’t like pumpkin pie. This is my truth, and you need to hear it. I love Thanksgiving, but I’ve always felt so disappointed in myself for not enjoying this cornerstone of the very holiday itself! This year, I’m rethinking my strategy. This year I’m exploring OTHER THINGS THAT ARE PUMPKIN, WOW—and one of the pumpkin desserts recipes on this list will reclaim pumpkin, and perhaps even Thanksgiving itself, in my heart. And tummy.
Okay okay okay, OKAY. If you don’t want to...actually bake your own treats this year, you can leave it to the professionals and order Milk Bar Thanksgiving desserts instead! This festively themed box contains a full celebration’s worth of treats from one of the best names in the dessert business. Pumpkin is a recurring theme, so maybe I need to take my own advice here?? This makes SUCH a sweet gift (literally) to send to loved ones as well!
This year, we are stopping clean up stress before it starts. This incredibly smart list of clean-up advice for the holidays is absolutely ideal for Thanksgiving, regardless of the size of your gathering. I mean they’re perfect for just being better at cleaning up everything, in general, if I’m honest. Why have I not been lining my trash cans with multiple bags THIS WHOLE TIME??
Let’s be smart this year, let’s come to the table, literally, with ideas for leftovers so that we’re not staring at half a bird on Friday not knowing what to do with ourselves. This list is REALLY good, seriously these are NOT your basic recipes, so you’ll be prepared for ongoinog deliciousness in advance.
Under the right coat, and in the right arctic conditions, this little guy is super smart. If you’re tired of getting tangled in your own scarf, I’d suggest trying this Padded Turtleneck Collar instead, to ward off any chill that thinks it's getting past your protective outer layer by way of the zipper region. Also maybe just leave it around the house sometime and watch family members try to figure out what it is.
When you think about it, sparkly slides for around the house were 100% going to be our greatest takeaway of 2020. These absolute gems (see what I did there?) from Birdies are the ideal festive season shoe where the most exciting place you’re going is probably the best seat in front of Netflix. No complaints here! The year 2020 shan’t (what an underutilized contraction) dull our sparkle, you mark my words. Also, if this silver glittery option isn't your jam, just wait until you see the other options.
Oh, did you not know this exists? IT SURE DOES, FRIENDS. This mix of beloved Christmas music classics is the ideal background for holiday baking, tree decorating, and just any sort of shenanigans you get into in festive pajamas, really. I’ll bet you $20 it leads to a re-watch from the beginning, just sayin’.
You know I’ve been quite interested in clothing the color of cider this year, so let’s keep it going with this GORGEOUS half-zip from Varley. I’ve shared a nearly identical version with you before in an ivory shade that I also love, but this one is absolutely perfect for this time of year and makes a great, unexpected neutral.
