Holiday home decor, food, clothing, and holiday cards, plus discounted gift cards to save even more on your holiday shopping!  Also, I’m a firm believer that holiday themed items should be gifted at Thanksgiving so they get used the maximum amount! Let me know what other items are on your holiday prep list in the comments. Always check all the stationery sites for deals – they post them right on their webpages. Don’t wait too long – they take advantage of indecision and reduce their discounts.
