Tip 8 

I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving! I had both Thanksgiving lunch and Thanksgiving dinner with my family, so there was a lot of delicious food to enjoy.

Now that Thanksgiving is over and the Macy Day Parade blimps have deflated, I’ve realized Christmas is less than a month away. Are you ready? Because I’m not! Here are my eight ways to create an herb-inspired Christmas.

8. Get in the kitchen and start baking delicious treats for your friends and family. It’s easier than finding everyone you know and love individual gifts. I’m most excited to try creating these Christmas Cookie Trees. Bake one of the six cookie recipes as the perfect centerpiece for any Christmas party.

7. I have been in love with paper ever since I was little and put in charge of wrapping Christmas gifts. Since then I’ve gotten tired of the same wrapping plus store-bought bow combination and have tried more creative decoration methods. As you start getting gifts, try getting creative with some of these fun wrappings.
