The Best Plus Size Holiday Outfits

If I’m being completely honest, my holiday season in 2019 will be the most laid back of my life.  Due to being nearly seven months pregnant with twins, there’s no traveling and any holiday activities we do will be SUPER low-key.  We’ll be doing more hot chocolate drinking and holiday movie watching and way less holiday party attending or nights on the town.

In today’s post, I’m sharing holiday outfit inspiration for plus size women, regardless of whether your holiday parties are glam and fabulous or low-key and cozy like mine.

Gift Guide For Kids

I’m SO excited to share my gift guides with you this week!  When I asked on social media what holiday content you’re most looking forward to… gift guides were definitely it!  I was thrilled to hear it because they are by far my favorite things to create for you.

To me, there is no better feeling than putting a lot of thought into finding the perfect gift for someone you love.  In today’s gift guide for the gentlemen in your life, I included a variety of price points from stocking stuffers to splurges and tried to vary the types of gifts based on different interests of the people we love the most.

As for you, I hope you enjoy this curated list of items as you shop for your friends and family… and I promise I won’t tell if you pick up a couple treats for yourself!

If you’re a regular reader, you likely know that I’m currently expecting twins (see our announcement post here).  Since they’re our first kids, I’m not yet quite a pro on kid holiday gifts… but in today’s post, I’m relying on insights from the gifts all the other kiddos in our lives have loved in recent years.  I’m sure in future years, my kids’ gift guide will be much more extensive! Haha.

To me, there is no better feeling than putting a lot of thought into finding the perfect gift for someone you love.  In today’s gift guide for the ladies in your life, I included a variety of price points from stocking stuffers to splurges and tried to vary the types of gifts based on different interests of the people we love the most.

Everything on this list is either something I already own or something I wish I did! I’ll be sure to let the people closest to me know which is which as they shop for me this year.  Haha.

Simplifying The Holidays

The holidays can be such a stressful time for all of us when they really should be joyous.  We’re spending quality time with loved ones, celebrating generosity and experiencing the magic of the season.  I’m guilty of letting the holidays stress me out sometimes, but this year I was determined to change that.  Here’s a rundown of what I’ve learned and how I simplified my holiday season this year.

Quick, Easy and Inexpensive Holiday Cards

There are a few things that I need my holiday cards to be…

Easy.  Quick turnaround. Inexpensive. Festive. Personal.

In general, I don’t like wasting money on paper products like birthday cards, gift wrap, etc. because for the most part they get thrown away or stored for a future occasional glance. I would rather save the $5 I’d spend on fancy gift wrap and get a better gift with a cute but inexpensive card and paper.

Photo holiday cards are a little different because many people (including me) do save them. I still don’t need them to be the fanciest pieces of paper ever, so they’re not something I like investing a lot of money into.

The Coziest Gift Guide You’ve Ever Seen

Y’all, the holiday season is the best!  There are parties, family time, and pretty much all of my favorite things.  After December 25th, though, I’m usually done with winter and just want to cozy up at home with Kevin and my dog as much as possible.

I know I’m not alone in this sentiment, so I think the perfect holiday gift is one that brings comfort for the remaining winter months.  If you’re like me and enjoy a cozy night in, you might want to consider these gift ideas as “treat yourself” ideas instead.

If you’re shopping for your favorite homebody, he or she will thank you for any of these gifts under the tree this year!

Cheers to cozy comfort and relaxation!

Real talk, this is a LONG list.  I have absolutely zero expectations of receiving all or even most of these items.  I’ll narrow this down to a few of the things I want the most and share it with the people who’ll be shopping for me.  Hi, Mom! Hi, Kevin!
