Who is with me!?

Welcoming the 2021 Holiday Season on wit & whimsy

Every year I look forward to celebrating the holiday season with you all through wit & whimsy! There is so much work that goes into holiday content but I love creating posts that hopefully make your season even merrier and even brighter!

This year I brought back the holiday hub earlier than ever & I hope that it will remain a go-to resource for you all season long. You can find it on the homepage’s top menu in red font. When you hover over it you’ll see two categories:

“Get Inspired” and “Get Gifting”

Under Get Inspired you’ll find all my posts related to holiday content (inclusive of gift guides) and Get Gifting is a the dedicated Holiday Shop broken down by category that’ll have exclusive gift finds you won’t find elsewhere in my content. It is a resource for gift ideas but also has things to wear during the season and ideas on how to decorate your home this holiday season. The shop’s various categories are just getting started and I’ll be updating them weekly. So be sure to keep checking back. I hope you find the hub handy and that it fills you with ideas for your holiday season! Be sure to bookmark it. 

And, if you’re a fan of shopping on Amazon, I’ve also created a dedicated Gift Ideas shop over in my Amazon Shop, too!

I’ve been working on my gift guides for a few weeks now and I can’t wait to share them over the next few weeks. They each feature a selection of thoughtful gifts you’ll actually want to buy. And nearly 80% of my selections for the gift guides are under $200. (I have a few luxury gifts in the The Holiday Shop and on Pinterest).  I will also be adding a Holidays section to the Weekly Roundup every week as well this year. So be sure to check those for even more gift ideas and holiday inspiration!

I can’t wait to share the gift ideas I’ve been finding!

I’ve been spending a lot of time culling through the web so that I’m bringing you fresh, exciting gift ideas and not a bunch of ideas you’re seeing elsewhere. I want these gift guides to be helpful resources and super practical for your holiday shopping. As I have in recent years, I’ll also be prioritizing small, BIPOC and female founded businesses wherever possible.

In addition to the gift guides I plan to publish this year and all the ideas being shared in the Holiday Shop, I’m also pinning gifts and holiday inspiration per usual over on a variety of Pinterest boards.

I also have posts planned for what to wear during this different holiday season, how to take advantage of the season and I also have some great collaborations in the works with some of my favorite brands that I can’t wait to reveal!

I am also thrilled to once again be bringing back my Kindness Campaign for its fourth year.

It filled my heart with so much joy the past three holiday seasons. And I hope it grows even bigger this year. I hope you’ll all get involved! It will launch on December 1. 

From now through the end of the year, you can expect to see an occasional weekend post, too! If you want to be sure to be getting exclusive holiday content in your inbox, too – be sure to sign up for my email list. I share things with subscribers first – and sometimes only with them!

The holidays are undoubtedly my busiest season of the year. I begin cranking out six instead of five posts a week. And the planning for my gift guides and seasonal posts begins all the way back in August. (Although I am actually writing down gift ideas all year long!) The amount of work is huge so I wanted to just be really outright in saying how much I appreciate you shopping purposefully from my links. And for engaging with my content (pinning it! commenting on it! saving it! sharing it with friends! all of these actions go a long way). 

If you want to be sure I receive credit for your purchase, I thought I’d just quickly share how it works! You must click on the item and buy it in that browser window between 7 and 30 days. (Every retailer’s window varies). If you swipe up and screenshot something I share on your phone and then Google it and buy it via your desktop – I won’t get credit. Your browser basically has to be able to follow the trackable link I share in order to get credit.

And, as an aside, it doesn’t matter if you buy the item I recommended.

I will get credit for whatever you end up purchasing from that retailer! (This is a question I get commonly so thought I’d clarify.)

Buying anything through the links shared on my LiketoKnowit profile also will give me credit. (That page is also a great resource if you’re trying to find something I recently talked about or wore). It is also easily found under The Shop – What Meghan’s Wearing.

The reason we drive you to LiketoKnowit or blog posts is because when you swipe up on a link in Instagram Stories, the link becomes invalid and unable to be tracked as soon as you close that window and go back to browsing Instagram. It equates to a lot of lost revenue sadly. But just know your purchases through my links is so appreciated and I’m grateful for all your support – truly.

Finally

To kick things off this holiday season and spread a little joy this week – I’m running a giveaway to jumpstart your shopping! I’ll be giving away three $100 American Express gift cards to three lucky followers!

How to Enter
  1. Follow me on Instagram
  2. Enter the giveaway by signing up here.

I’ll randomly select & email the three winners in the next week!

I hope you’ll enjoy everything coming to you this year as part of wit & whimsy. I always strive to have my holiday content be a balance between gifting but also the true spirit of this time of year which is that of gratitude, kindness, giving back, joy & taking care of one another and this year is no exception.

Thanks for celebrating this season of joy with me!

  1. Your holiday content is SO good – and I love the kindness campaign! My three adult kids are all coming home for the holiday this year and I’m super excited. We like a low-key holiday, but I am trying to find one special activity to do as a family! One of our favorite traditions is a Christmas Eve book exchange; we draw names and then spend the evening reading together with an adult hot cocoa bar (now that everyone is over 21). I hope you have a family visit planned for the holidays!
