4 Holiday Hacks

Hi loves … now that Halloween is behind us we know what’s coming up just around the corner … CHRISTMAS!! Yup, I went there! LOL! Honestly, though, it’s only around 7 weeks away! How crazy is that?! I don’t know about you but I’m always thinking about Christmas … especially because it feels like it came early for me this year!! Let me guess … you’re probably sitting there wondering WHY … right?? Thought so. Nope, I’m not pregnant … LOL.

Christmas has come early for me this year because I have partnered up with POTTERY BARN!!! Eeeeppp!! You guys, I can’t even begin to describe how EXCITED I am about this partnership!! I have loved Pottery Barn ever since I can remember! I feel like their products really align with my style AND align with my followers … that’s right, that means YOU!!

Over on Pottery Barns website I’ll be sharing advice on hosting Christmas brunch, along with some of my favourite family recipes (like my Holiday Stovetop Wheat Berries!) and tips on how to take a great holiday portrait!! Oh, annnnd they have some pretty adorable decor this season!! Check it all out HERE!!

So, now that I am fully in Christmas planning mode and in the spirit of giving, I thought I would share 4 holiday hacks with you! These are hacks that you can achieve with a little help from the elves over at Pottery Barn!!

Get Personal

That’s right, not only does Pottery Barn have a TON of gift options online and in their stores but they also offer personalized gifts!! Personally, I love giving these sorts of gifts because they are somewhat of a keepsake … and who doesn’t love a bathrobe with your initials on it while you drink your Christmas morning mimosa?! LOL!! They have a variety of gifts starting at around $25 and they also offer FREE gift wrapping in stores … all you have to worry about is all of the extra time you’re going to have this holiday season! LOL!

Shop from the Comfort of Your Home

We all know that you can shop for your gifts online (who doesn’t love shopping in their pj’s?!) … but what if you could write your list and give it to someone else to do your shopping for you?? Nope. You’re not dreaming … that’s something you can actually do … write your list, check it twice, pass it off to Pottery Barn and they’ll do the shopping FOR YOU. Game. Changer.

Treat Yourself

I mean … I know the holidays are for giving … but you have to give yourself a little love from time to time … no? Whether it’s getting your own personalized robe for Christmas morning or adding a few new decor pieces in your home, don’t feel bad about spoiling yourself a little too.

Entertain Like a Rockstar

If you’re planning on hosting a holiday brunch or Christmas dinner … or, if you just want to have the girls over for some mulled wine, you can find a variety of decor and tableware items to suit your style and mood … whether you’re Buddy the Elf … or a little more on the Grinch side, there’s a little somethin’ somethin’ for everyone. Lol. I know whenever I host my family and friends, I like to make sure I have cute napkins or festive holiday plates for the get-together!

Oh … and … do you need a little help planning your holiday party?? Give Pottery Barn’s Design Concierge Services a try … they will actually PLAN your party for you!! I wondering if they’re hiring … ? LOL!

    Pottery Barn is my go-to for Christmas decor, candles, ideas, tableware, gifts, etc. Love PB.

    These photos are positively dreamy! Ahh!

    Love PB and all things Christmas. Our favorite traditions include cutting down a Christmas tree and decorating gingerbread houses. Usually go with a rustic style when present wrapping — kraft paper, bakers twine, burlap ribbon — and am considering making a popcorn garland and drying orange slices to hang on the tree. Have never done it so I don’t know how hard it would be but I love the old-timey look.

    Can’t wait to follow your holiday festivities! Keep the photos coming!

    Hi Jillian,

    I think you and Pottery Barn are a great fit. Love Pottery Barn and will look forward to what your partnership will bring. I too miss Love or List it Vancouver. Perhaps it will be back when the time is right.
    Cheers.

    The Like It posts do not always show what you actually have which is maddening. Would love to know where the wood stump side table beside your sofa is from. The link to The Cross option is a much skinner 18″ x 10″ version. Thanks.

    I love your posts on Pottery Barn and the holiday magic that you have displayed on your table. I only wish I could get the reindeer, santa, snowman and Mrs Claus delivered to Winnipeg.=(

    Jillian,
    About 6 of us want to know the wallpaper in the office that you used in season 4, Sally and Ed episode. Please, please answer. The episode just replayed and I’m still dying to know that and the artist for the watercolors in the bathroom. Love, love, love this renovation! Thank you!

    Our family gift this year is a trip to Canada! Do you have a traditional dessert recipe to help us celebrate?

    As an Interior Designer I love to follow you on Instagram. You are so down to earth and I love your style. The reno of your new home turned out beautifully, even though I did love your previous home.
    As we speak, the second coat of paint is being applied on my much needed walls. As soon as that last drop cloth is picked up out comes the Christmas decor!!!!! Can’t wait! Then I spend a day helping to decorate each of my daughter’s homes in their own style and decor!
    Just finished a little girls bedroom completely from Pottery Barn! She was thrilled!
    Looking forward to seeing your new home decked out for the season and pictures of little Leo too!
