3. Simplify your holiday. Take a moment to sit down and really consider what you love — and don’t care for — about the holiday season. No one can do it all, and trying to accomplish too much only creates stress and disappointment. Pick your top three favorite holiday activities or traditions, and commit to doing them this month. Then list your three least favorite holiday activities and vow to skip them this year. If you are feeling pressure from friends or relatives to keep doing certain things (i.e., baking a dozen different kinds of cookies), tell them that you are simplifying your holiday this year, and are focusing on the things you love most. Then invite them to share in something you do want to do, like going ice skating or drinking hot cocoa.

“Limit the gifts.” — Alison HodgsonWhile Hodgson’s family doesn’t quite stick to the ‘Principle of the Three Wise Men’ of giving three gifts (one thing needed, one thing wanted and one surprise), they are thoughtful about editing the gifts down to a level where things are still meaningful.

Forage From the GardenCollecting branches, leaves or feathers from the garden is an affordable option for adding embellishments to your presents. Gift wrapping can still be beautiful even with budget constraints; you just have to be a little creative with your ideas.This present, featuring a simple twig with berries, still feels festive and pretty, despite the lack of Christmas paper. It is an ideal gift topper for gardeners or lovers of the great outdoors.
Becky Harris added this to You Said It: ‘Life Is Better When the House Is Clean’ and More
“Keep only the decorations you use and love.” — Laura GaskillCleaning up after the holidays is kind of the pits, but it can be a great opportunity to get some feel-good organizing done. Purging decorations you don’t use anymore, donating toys, repurposing boxes, recycling, rethinking what you give and receive in the future (perhaps you have enough things and would prefer a museum membership or Netflix subscription) are all good ways to wrap up the holiday season.Full story: 9 Ways to Unclutter Your Holiday

Use foliage to embellish wrapped gifts.

1. Ein grünes ZweigleinOb aus dem Garten oder vom Adventskranz gemopst: Ein winziges Zweiglein oder etwas Tannengrün reicht schon aus, um die simple Verpackung aus Packpapier und Bindfaden weihnachtlich zu gestalten – back to nature ist das Motto! Und das funktioniert immer: Zu jeder Jahreszeit gibt es schöne Blätter, Blumen oder Äste, die man verwenden kann – vom Weidenkätzchen bis zum Lavendel.
