Shop Small // Give Big: Holiday Gift Guide

Hailey Fynaardt

The holiday countdown has officially begun and before we know it, we'll be reflecting on the past twelve months and making resolutions for the New Year ahead. Between the shopping, decorating, celebrating, and making, the last month of the year always seems to fly by, but the things we all truly crave don't come wrapped in boxes and bows: new adventures, time spent pursuing old passions, gatherings with loved ones, moments of rest and rejuvenation. What if we simply saw everything we bought this season, and beyond, as tools for creating more of what we really want? This year, we want to encourage you to think outside-the-box when it comes to holiday gift-giving. Instead of focusing on more stuff, imagine the mood, and memories, each item will inspire...

Enjoy the process!




Rosemary Satsuma Holiday Martini

Rosemary Satsuma Martini // Holiday Cocktail Recipe // Habitation Co.

Although we just got home from New Orleans- the land of famous cocktails- yesterday, we are serving up a drink that we were introduced to at a holiday "cocktail exchange" party a few weeks ago. This martini-style cocktail is simple and festive without being overly sweet. Super-juicy fresh satsuma oranges and sprigs of rosemary make this drink smell as pretty as it looks, an easy crowd pleaser at your holiday party this season. Enjoy!

Netflix... and Chili Jalapeno Margaritas

Hailey Fynaardt


Aside from a whole month of Christmas music, one of the best parts about December is getting to binge watch all of our favorite holiday movies. Growing up, A Christmas Story and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation were an annual tradition in my household, but over the years, my list of faves has expanded to include Home Alone, The Grinch, Elf, You've Got Mail, Just Friends, and a few others. The best part is that most of these movies are just a click of a remote away, so plan a night to order delivery, mix up a few of these tasty chili jalapeno margaritas, and just chill, this season!
