We are BIG advent calendar people, but this year I couldn’t find anything for myself. So during one of my bouts of insomnia, I had an idea to bake a different batch of cookies every day, instead!

As a young family, it can be hard to balance the holiday traditions that you grew up with and the new holiday traditions that you’d like to start with your kids.

2020 has been quiiiite the year, am I right? A lot of small businesses have been hit hard by the pandemic, and that’s caused a shift in more people wanting to “shop small” to try and support them.

Let me tell you a little bit about the 2020 Small Business Holiday Gift Guide.

So…what is the five gift rule?
