Holiday Gift Guide 2019: For the One Hosting

I don't mind hosting, but I'm kind of excited to not be doing so this year. Going home this year, we just didn't want to go all out with decor and worry about party planning. Next year is fair game, though! It was a smart move on our part, because it's been something else trying to get everything ready for the trip to South Carolina.

If like us, you're going elsewhere for all of your Christmas gatherings, perhaps this will give you a few ideas on what to take as a gift for the ones opening up their home to you. I also highly recommend food to add to the offerings, because who isn't excited when more food shows up?! As always, I kept it to a budget. All of these ideas are under $50!

Holiday Gift Guide 2019: For the Homebody

It's pretty fitting that my next gift guide to follow the beauty lovers one would be the one dedicated to the homebody. I mean, those two describe me quite accurately! Especially during these colder months where I want nothing more than to bundle up inside, read a book, and whatnot. All things cozy, please!

I've made this list easy by having everything be from Chapters, but really this list is to give ideas. These are things that you can find at so many places. And I try to keep my lists affordable for those like me who are on a budget!

Blog of the Month for December 2019 - At Home with Elisabeth

In November, Jayne from Cosmetic Proof was my featured blogger (who just got engaged, if you want to throw a congratulations her way!). You can read that post and see other past featured blogs under the "blog of the month" label! Being my blog of the month gets you a designated blog post, a sidebar button, and a mention on my Twitter account. The sidebar button stays up all month long. I don't believe in necessarily making bloggers pay for advertising and I'd much rather show you blogs that I really enjoy reading. And I hope you end up enjoying them too!

For the final month of 2019, I've chosen Elisabeth from At Home with Elisabeth. The last time I featured Elisabeth was when she was running her prior blog. Covering beauty, food, and lifestyle subjects, you're bound to find something you like. Her blog is full of festive things for the holiday season (like her holiday cookie board). If you stop by, feel free to let her know I sent you her way!

InstaMonth for November 2019

I've been adding a few more and more festive touches to my Instagram as the holiday season progresses. I just can't help it! This is my absolute favorite time of the year and I just feel like I am thriving. Especially this year with a trip home on the threshold. That just puts an extra dose of magic in the air!

So I'm cranking up my Christmas playlist on Spotify and typing up this post and just soaking in all of the holiday vibes, because this time of year just doesn't last long enough. I do have plans to share a Christmas playlist in an upcoming blog post! As always, if you want to follow each other on Instagram, you can find me as @wendybanner.

November 2019 Faves

I hope all of my fellow Americans had a great Thanksgiving! I certainly missed being home to celebrate - but hopefully next year! If all went to plan (I've scheduled this post), I had a laid back day of watching the parade and whatnot. Tonight, we're hosting a combination dinner for my Thanksgiving and my MIL's birthday. Just the three of us, but I have a bit of a feast planned. Instead of typical Thanksgiving fare, I'm making chili with ALL of the toppings (gimme!), cornbread, and a dessert. I just haven't decided on the dessert yet!

It felt fitting to end this week with my November favorites since this weekend ushers in December. Did you get an advent this year that you're looking forward to starting? I have a suspicion that I have one wrapped under the tree, but I guess I'll find out come Sunday! Though the cutest advent is the one we got for our dog Indy- there's frosted cookies behind each door. So precious!
