Holiday Survival Kit - Regally Soled Style

2014 Holiday Survival Kit

While it might be dubbed "the most wonderful time of the year" the holiday season can also be the most stressful time of the year as you look at coordinating schedules for family get-togethers, buying gifts and braving the droves of people in the mall. Ugh, just typing all of those makes our heads spin, but at the same time we love it nonetheless. We get through the holiday season, however, with a few aces up our sleeves–enter our holiday survival kit (and no kit is complete without the perfect bottle of wine).
The Body Shop Vanilla Brulee Body Butter // Cold, dry weather calls for body butter, and when it's in a holiday fragrance it's even butter...er, we mean 'better'.

Harney & Son's Holiday Tea // We love hot cocoa, but nothing is better than a cup of tea that tastes like Christmas in a cup. This tea is amazing and the mix of spices will leave you prepped and ready to deck the halls.

ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas // Seriously, shove the entire network in our crate and we'll be golden. We started watching Christmas movies on Halloween, so an entire month dedicated to holiday cheer is fine with us!

Kat Von D's Studded Kiss Lipstick in Adora // There is nothing more classic than red lips during the holiday season–see Taylor Swift's new CD 1989 to confirm this thought. Yes, it's on repeat in our shared office. You'll thank us later.

Michael Buble's Christmas CD // When we aren't blasting Tay-Tay's new CD, our Spotify accounts are being blown up by Christmas classics sung by none other than Michael Buble, Mariah Carey and Jessica Simpson...and maybe a little Justin Bieber–don't judge, you know you love some of his songs, too. You catch our drift, we're filled with cheer over here.

Voluspa Maison Holiday Votive Candle Set // If you've ever stepped foot in an Anthropologie, you've smelled a Voluspa candle. It smells like heaven and it's instantly calming, which is just what we need during the holiday madness.

Seven Daughters Moscato // While we'd like an entire crate filled with this wine, we'll settle for a bottle...or two. I'm pretty sure this alone could get you through the holidays.

Snack Factory White Chocolate Peppermint Pretzel Crisps // Seriously, these white chocolate covered peppermint pretzel crisps are something we look forward to every holiday season. Unfortunately, we haven't been able to find them yet this year, but when we do, rest assured there will be several bags demolished.

After writing this post, we are seriously jonesing for some wine and pretzels and our favorite Christmas movies. Clearly, we are super easy to buy for. Give us food and Taylor Swift (music or in-person) and we are happy. But, what do you get the more difficult ones on your list, aka men? We found Man Crates online and knew that these gifts were perfect for all types of guys–gamers, golfers, drinkers and jerky-eaters (seriously, a crate full of jerky is a guy's dream). Check out these crates and we promise it will be one of your favorite gifts to give this holiday season.

...but seriously, don't you wish your favorite things could come in a crate? We may be on to something here.
