The holiday season officially begins this week! Before I jump into sharing my gift guides with you, I wanted to share today’s post first, because it’s about a gift that gives all through the season…advent calendars! Advent calendars make great gifts to give to others, but even better, a great gift to give yourself!
What’s better than a small gift every day leading up to Christmas 🙂
