Here's How We're Going to Sleigh, Not Stress This Holiday Season!!

'Tis the season for joy, but we get it – it's also a whirlwind of chaos. Fear not, because we've got your back with tips and tricks to keep the stress at bay and the jingle in your bells.  Time to sleigh this holiday season together!

1. Sip, Sip, Hooray!
Stressed spelled backward is desserts – a coincidence? We think not! Take a pause, grab your favorite festive beverage (mulled wine, anyone?) and indulge in a moment of pure bliss.  Want to level up this idea?  Lock yourself away from the family in a nice, hot, bubbly bath!  Sip, savor, and let the holiday magic sink in.  Here are some of our favorite holiday themed wine glasses, if you want to sip in style :)

2. Playlist Power-Up:
This one really works.  You already know what songs can just kick that bad mood right out of you.  Create a soundtrack for your sanity! Whether it's Mariah hitting those high notes or some smooth jazz to chill you down, create a playlist that transforms the hustle and bustle into a holiday groove. Music is the ultimate mood booster!

3. Wrap Like a Boss:
Do yourself a favor this year.  Put a few hours for wrapping into your schedule right now!  This way Dad knows he's taking the kids out of the house, you gather your supplies, put on your favorite holiday movie, grab your favorite beverage and make it a cozy wrapping party for one.

4. Delegate the Elf Duties:
You're not Santa – you can't do it all. It's time to delegate.  Whether it's gift shopping, meal prep or any other of those million tasks. Get your family and friends involved, turn it into a team effort, and watch the holiday stress melt away. It's all about sharing the joy (and the workload).

5. Hygge Heaven:
Your home is your haven and we aim to keep it that way, even during the hectic holidays.  Time to embrace the cozy Danish concept of hygge. Create warm, inviting spaces with twinkling lights, fluffy blankets, and scented candles. A cozy ambiance can turn even the most chaotic moments into serene escapes.  Shop our favorite selections from Barefoot Dreams & cozy PJS, blankets, socks and slippers!


This holiday season, stress will not steal the spotlight. With a sprinkle of these stress-busting tips, you're ready to sleigh the holidays like a pro. So, pour yourself a cup of cheer, turn up the tunes, and let the festivities begin!  Happy Holidays!

xoxo
