GIRL, don’t be shocked (I’m well aware this is unpopular opinion), but if you’ve followed along with me for a holiday season or two, you likely know I’m not a huge holiday gal.

And though I refuse to buy into the heightened purchasing pressures that go hand-in-hand with the holidays, I do recognize it is a beautiful time to show appreciation to loved ones by gifting them something special.
