I truly cannot believe how fast this month has gone! In just one week, it will be Christmas. This weekend, we are headed to my family’s holiday party. How are you spending the last weekend before the holidays?
The peak of my week has just been that it’s been a more balanced week for me work-wise, and I have been able to get a few things done around the house like cleaning my closet (which was driving me nuts).
Sadly, I hate even bringing this up, but the pit was picking up my beloved cat’s ashes. I was absolutely dreading it, yet in a weird way felt at peace having her back. I prefer to keep my notes here lighter than this, but it’s real life, and maybe there’s someone out there dreading it too who may find solace in dealing with it themselves.
This weekend, I want to make sure you have some last-minute Christmas gift ideas, as well as some New Years reads to get you through the second half of December.

Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas
And if you are still struggling to come up with some last-minute Christmas gift ideas, I’ve got you.
My 150+ best stocking stuffer ideas for women and book lovers post has been really popular this year, and I think this is the kind of thing you may be likely to be looking for right now — They are all small and under $50, with almost all under $25. And most of them are from Amazon for quick and easy shopping.
You can’t go wrong with one or more to get a quick win on Christmas morning!
Have a great pre-Christmas week!
