Are you ready for Christmas yet? I'm finished shopping but haven't decorated the house or baked anything. I haven't even decided on what we are going to have for Christmas dinner!
If you're like me, you can use all the help you can get. So I've compiled a list with some great ideas for you below. There are recipes, craft ideas and even printables for the kids.
I like the idea of the "34 Gift Ideas in a Jar." It's a homemade gift you can create with your friends and family. If you still need inspiration, there's always Martha Stewart, she's on the list too!
