Eggnog or wassail? Turkey or ham? White lights or multicolor?
A Christmas Story or Christmas Vacation?
While there are no wrong answers to these holiday questions, you likely have opinions about each. Your choices, large and small, become your traditions—or “how you holiday,” as we like to say here at DIY and Better Homes & Gardens ® .
Your calendar from October to January is already busy, so we’ve curated an issue of easy ways to refresh (and maybe even lighten) your holiday to-do list. Upgrade your front door in less than an hour (“Wreaths Reimagined,” page
90) or decorate with fresh greenery available in your yard or grocery (“Season’s Greens,” page
8). Whip up foolproof handmade gifts with a few friends (“Crafter Hours,” page 94) or plant unforgettable party favors in minutes
(“Green Gifts,” page 66). And don’t miss our favorite gadgets and gizmos for all the
DIYers on your shopping list (“Gifts for
Giving,” page 18). Done and done!
May your holidays be a little brighter— and a little more you!
