The best part about Christmas is the baking, right? These decadent Christmas cookie sandwiches with holiday M&M’s is the perfect addition to any party, cookie exchange, after-dinner dessert spread, and more!
In the mood to whip up some sort of festive, Christmas baking you know everyone is going to devour? Of course, you are because while everybody loves sweets during the holidays, not everybody has the same tastes. Some people go for treats that are pure chocolate and some take the more traditional route with desserts like fruit cake.
I live alone and I live in a condo. It’s both a blessing and a burden at the same time because while I have freedom and independence, any home you occupy by yourself is hard to maintain – especially when it’s small and unique in its layout. However, what’s managed to help me the most is the gifts I’ve received – from friends, from family, from my parents. Each small token has helped shape the home I’ve been able to build and has, in its own way, helped make my life even the slightest bit easier. That’s why this gift guide is so important to me.
Whether you’re learning about the true meaning of the holiday season or diving head-first into history and exploring the brave people who came before us, the power that books play in our lives is undeniable. But books about strong and powerful women, about adversity, about courage and faith, about overcoming hardships and intolerance? Those are the books that deserve to be placed front and center on the shelves of the children we read them to.
