It’s the last BotBW before Christmas, so let’s get down to business here and share our favourite blog posts of all things holidays! Hopefully, you’re finished up all your exams and can sit back with a nice cup of cocoa and enjoy. Happy Holidays everyone!

  • Who says only Martha Stewart can make wrapped gifts look like works of art? Pretty Handy Girl give us two separate guides (here’s part 1, and here’s part 2) to creative, pretty, and easy-to-do gift wraps. Your friends and family will be amazed!
  • While we covered our own gift-giving guide here, the Hip & Urban Girl’s Guide did their own unique spin with gifts for different sets on your list, like the wanderlust, the girl next door, and the hostess. Check out part 1 here, and part 2 here.
  • Want a more green Christmas this year? Skip the disposable wrapping paper and opt for pretty, environmentally-friendly, recycled fabric wrapping instead, a la The Prairie Girl.
  • Gift ideas for the book-worm on your list, from Book Club Girl.
  • Remember that gift you had to have when you were eight? How about when you were ten? Twelve? Well, College Candy remembers, and when you check out their post, it will all come flooding back.
  • Glittery holiday fashion drenched in sequins and sparkles? Country Girl, City World, I think you’re on to something.
  • Pretty and delicious, Cupcakes and Cashmere gives us a step-by-step for making sugar cookies with royal icing, a holiday cookie classic.
  • Sparkly, cozy, and over-the-top holiday hair accessories from Girly Girl.
  • From Nerdy Girl Makeup, a super-cute snow-inspired makeup look. Not so nerdy, if you ask me.
  • Holiday party wear, from Fabby Girl, is just that: fabulous!
  • The Ginger Snap Girl’s holiday cream wafers look like a college girl’s answer to Paris maccaroons. Can you say simple luxury?

Whew, hopefully that satisfies your cyber sweet tooth. Please, give us a gift and share your favourite holiday blog posts! Old, new, upcoming, it doesn’t matter, leave a comment and share the wealth!

  2. Kaleigh,

    Thanks for the glowing words about my creative gift wrappings. I’m blushing ;-). I just wanted to let you know that there will be 6 days of creative gift wrapping tutorials in all. I hope you enjoy them as much as I had fun making them.

    Best of luck to you and your readers on your exams and I hope you have a wonderful holiday break.
