The winter holidays grow more commercialized each year, with endless depictions of social-media-worthy décor, flawless meals, and mountains of presents. But trying to pull off this perfect party often results in more stress than joy. This year, don’t let shopping and prepping overshadow the delight of gathering with friends and family. Cook, craft, celebrate, and give back together, and remember that the time you spend with those you love this season means more than any physical gift.
