Wrapping Paper Roll Call: This Year, There's No Place [but] Home for the Holidays

We know without the promise of family and friends, it’s a lot less festive this year—“doin’ it for the ‘gram” takes on an entirely different meaning when you can’t actually spend time with Gram and Pops.

Harlem Candle Company

There’s a reason candles are the most popular gift of this and every season—they provide instant ambiance and it’s hard to go wrong.
