With the holiday season fully upon us, I can tell you first hand I am familiar with stress and more.
Last week, I can attest that I was most definitely feeling the holiday burn. I was even a bit more quiet here than usual, because of it. No excuses just is what it is, I suppose.
But as I am trying to dig my way out of the holiday craziness myself, I thought I would gladly share some ways that are helping me make my life simpler during the holidays now.
So, take a look at my 4 surefire tips to simplify and ease your stress during the holidays…
1. Fake It until you make it with a fake tree.
OK, I know many have real Christmas trees each year, but having a fake tree can save you time from having to pick out the perfect tree annually, as well as cost, too.
2. When in doubt shop online sales for gifting options.
I am a firm believer in shopping online on Black Friday, Cyber Monday and even throughout the month of December. First, online shopping is truly so easy and convenient. But secondly, being able to take advantage of sales online is a double score to me, as you can also save time and money with shopping, as well.
3. Get creative and make your own gift tags.
Instead of spending money on gift tags, you can use programs, such as PicMonkey or even Canva to help make your own gift tag printables. However, if you are short on time or just not sure how to make them, you can always download my free printable gift tags here. This will not only save you money, but time, too!
4. Go ahead and serve store bought desserts.
See holiday dessert time can be stressful enough. Baking cookies, pies and more can also be time consuming, as well as costly. But you can always look to Baskin-Robbins for the perfect store bought alternatives. I mean who doesn’t like ice cream for dessert?
Right now, Baskin-Robbins has two delicious holiday-themed desserts which are absolutely perfect for any family or friend celebration this upcoming holiday season.
The first is the Ganache Poinsettia Cake. This 9” round cake is not only elegant, but also decadent. Why? Because it is topped with a simple, but beautiful poinsettia with Winter OREO® Cookies.
The second is the Peppermint & Winter OREO® Cookies Polar Pizza. This polar pizza has a double fudge brownie crust with Peppermint ice cream, topped with Winter OREO® Cookie Pieces and drizzled with marshmallow and fudge topping.
How much more festive, tastier and easier could it get? Well, now it happens to be even easier, because both can be pre-ordered in-store, over the phone or ONLINE at www.baskinrobbins.com/onlineordering. Just make sure to order at least 24 hours before you want to pickup.
