My daugh­ter, Molly, is one of those peo­ple who just loves giv­ing gifts. For her, the hol­i­days are the per­fect time to find not only that re­ally spe­cial present but also lots of fun lit­tle trea­sures that make peo­ple smile. She’s the per­son that would wrap each in­di­vid­ual Bar­bie out­fit so that her cousins had sev­eral presents to open, LOL! Molly loves to see the joy on peo­ple’s faces when they un­wrap gifts, and she gets a won­der­ful thrill see­ing moun­tains of presents un­der the tree, even if half of them are dol­lar-store spe­cials. For Molly, as for many of you, re­mem­ber­ing ev­ery­one, in­clud­ing the pets, is what makes the hol­i­days spe­cial. In this is­sue of Christ­mas Dec­o­rat­ing, we in­cluded a spe­cial fea­ture for those furry friends—who are more than just pets, but are truly part of the fam­ily. See “Purr-fect Pet Presents” on page 96 for many cute ideas. And for those who love to cel­e­brate the hol­i­days with a fun day of craft­ing with the kids or grand­chil­dren, this is­sue’s col­lec­tion of DIY or­na­ments will have you happy for hours. (No Pin­ter­est fails here!) Gift-givers will love our cre­ative takes on gift wrap­ping, and for those of you who like a sim­pler look for the hol­i­days, our Scandi-style fea­ture will wrap you in warmth. From daz­zling baubles, ban­gles and beads, to an invit­ing coun­try Christ­mas, this year’s Christ­mas Dec­o­rat­ing is­sue has some­thing for ev­ery­one. So cud­dle up with your cat, get craft­ing with your grand­kids or just en­joy a beau­ti­ful win­ter morn­ing while in­dulging in page af­ter page of the hol­i­day sea­son.
