I always feel like the time between Halloween and New Year’s absolutely flies by. I want to take it all in and savor the good moments with friends and family, the festive holiday activities, and the fun traditions—but it seems like I blink and the most wonderful time of the year is over. That’s why we’ve put together an exhaustive list of all of the holiday essentials you could possibly need this year. 

You’ll be prepared with everything you need for all of those fun activities and traditions so that you can focus on enjoying them and making the most of the holiday season instead of scrambling to come up with a last-minute date night idea for you and your partner or running out in the cold to get your peppermint creamer for your morning coffee.

Here are all of the holiday essentials you need for your home, your holiday activities, your kitchen, and your makeup bag:

 

It doesn’t truly feel like the holiday season until your home is decorated to match your festive spirit. From chunky knits to bottlebrush trees to our favorite winter candles, these decor items will make your home feel like the North Pole.

 

The best part about the holidays is all of the fun activities you can do with family and friends. You can put on your favorite festive PJs for a cozy movie night at home, curl up with a good book by a fireplace, have a wreath-making or gingerbread house-decorating contest with friends, or venture out on a walk to look at lights and sip mulled wine. 

 

There is no season that inspires me to get to the kitchen more than the holiday season. Whether it’s as simple as stepping up my coffee game to make it Starbucks-level seasonal, making a festive charcuterie board for a gathering, baking some holiday treats, or even just popping popcorn for a viewing of The Holiday, these items will have your kitchen fully stocked. 

 

With holiday parties and celebrations come the opportunity to experiment with fun, festive, and glamorous makeup looks. Everyone needs a go-to red lip (or a sparkly gloss), an eyeshadow palette with some seasonal tones, something to achieve that holiday glow, and a signature warm scent.
