My favorite things for Christmas right now include faux flocked trees, some quirky crown wearing birds, cranberry recipes and stocking stuffers ANY guy would love.
Two Christmas Decor Items I’m Loving
I shared my holiday decor this week on my instagram story (short video below). My motto is “faux is fab” since I put decor up before Thanksgiving. Below are two faux flocked trees that I love. One is in the instagram video; the other (less expensive one) arrives at my house Tuesday. It will go in our guest apartment.
This King of Christmas Tree is in my dining room. I got at least 10 direct messages on my insta story requesting the link to this tree. I’ve had this tree for two years; it looks like new, and no lights have gone out. Last night I ordered This Flocked Tree for the Basement. It is half the price of the King of Christmas, but got great amazon reviews.
Crown Bedecked Birds. Y’all, I love these quirky little birds! I have them all over the house~nestled into holiday vignettes. I bought my first one at a boutique here in B’ham; happily, just discovered the exact ones (much cheaper) here on amazon.
How to Make Your Home Smell Like Christmas
Thymes Frasier Fir Diffuser Oil. Although this isn’t officially decor, it is all about making the home smell like Christmas. And make no mistake, Thymes Frasier Fir is the BEST holiday scent (in my humble yet strong opinion lol). My friends and I all are obsessed with the candles, and the diffuser oil will last forever. I put mine in this diffuser from William’s-Sonoma.
Two of My Best Cranberry Recipes
We had our first holiday party of the year last night~a Friendsgiving dinner with our young marrieds small group from church. We had smoked turkey, this brown sugar glazed ham, and all the traditional Thanksgiving sides. Interestingly, the stars of the meal were both cranberry recipes. Check out the short video below.
Leslie’s Cranberry Jalapeño Salsa disappeared in a flash. Y’all, it is beautiful, fresh, healthy and delicious. The recipe is here, and I ordered this Beatrix Ball white chip and dip last night (similar to the one in the photo below).
Fabulous Cranberry Sauce. This is the easiest (and best) cranberry sauce recipe ever. I made a double batch yesterday, thinking I would have plenty for the rest of the holiday. I had to pull out my “extra” because everyone kept going back.
Two Best Stocking Stuffers For Him
Guys are so hard to buy for, but here are two sure fire stocking stuffers ANY guy will love. I can attest to the redneck LOL back scratcher on the list. My husband has one in his car and two in the house haha.
- Brown Leather Initial Keychain. I ordered one for my hubs (Z), one for my new son-in-law (S). If they look as good in person when they arrive, I’m ordering one for all the men in the family.
- This Set of 3 Back Scratchers. My husband is obsessed with this LOL. His back ALWAYS needs scratching, so I am happy to be relieved of the job.
This Week on The SavvyCast Podcast
Dr. Joe Beam shared some crazy interesting info in this jam-packed 30 minute episode. He shares a ton of helpful info for those who are married (or not) around the topic of attraction.
