I had a very specific idea in mind around decorating for the holidays, but doing it in a way that didn’t take up tons of space in your home—getting the cozy feeling without overwhelming your space! In the past, I’ve decorated my home for the holidays, and often it felt like the tree and decor could take over the space, especially if you don’t have a huge home or live in an apartment. So I put together some minimalist Christmas decor ideas that are easy to recreate yourself, elegant, festive, and space-saving! Lots of great minimalist Christmas tree options for that sparse, Charlie Brown style Christmas tree that has become very popular!
Decorating isn’t the only thing that can stress you out during the holidays. I have to admit, sometimes I forget someone on my gift-giving list, and it’s a scramble to figure something out at the last minute. In an effort to not find something re-giftable around the house, I’m sharing some of my favorite last-minute gift ideas when you’re looking for something different or quick to find a great gift!
