Links + Loves: Holiday Cookies + Mind-Blowing Gift-Wrap Ideas

What a week for Pelaton, right?! But we’ll still be watching And Just Like That…and here’s how. Related, we kinda feel like Carrie would love this wedding dress — don’t you?? But while she’s prone to something more dramatic, we also rounded up our favorite simple wedding dresses for a more understated (still totally chic) look. Finally, here’s a guide to the ethical and affordable engagement ring trend we’re loving.

Here are a few things our editors are loving lately:

From Jen:

I just got this festive diffuser blend collection and am obsessed with all the scents!

Who else is making cookies this weekend?? I’m planning to make these and these.

Thinking will also try this Bad Santa White Russian.

And of course, watching my favorite Christmas movies – this one with my family, this one once the kids go to sleep. :slight_smile:

From Diana:

Anyone else still last-minute Christmas shopping?! For my wine-loving father-in-law, I got him this sleek marble wine cooler.

For my mother-in-law, I got this candle discovery set. It’s literally perfect when you don’t know what scent someone would like. After using the samples, they get a certificate to pick up the full-sized one of their choice at no cost to them!

From Sheena:

These days, I’m in a comfort food mood, and pretty much all I want to eat is potatoes. Like give me every variation of the dish and I’m a happy gal. My fave recipe right now is this one for Lebanese spicy potatoes. Literally the most delicious thing ever.

Speaking of cooking, I have a strange obsession with cute cooking equipment, and these acacia wood and gold measuring cups are so cute. Adding to cart!

From Katie:

The Winter season brings such dry skin for me, and who else to solve all my beauty problems than Tik Tok? I’ve been told I should be using hydrating everything, so I’m trying out this hydrating face primer from Target to see if it helps with my foundation application!

You have to see this bedroom makeover on Tik Tok! Heart eyes!!!

I start making my holiday baked goods next week so I’m sharing my FAVE English toffee recipe. Everyone always wants more of this stuff.

From Britt:

I played a fun $20 White Elephant game with girlfriends and ended up going home with this nail polish set and this bag to carry them in. I’ve already worn every color and love them ALL. If you need a stocking stuffer or quick gift, you can stop looking.

This post was served to me and rightly so. Gonna try it out on a few presents this weekend! (Going down the rabbit hole…look how she wraps a ball!!)

I have this tab open at all times — really want to try making these for a nice holiday dessert!

Have a great weekend!
