Holiday Essentials with Man Crates

I was recently introduced to  Man Crates and it inspired me to create my own personal holiday survival kit.  Man-crates are a pretty cool gift idea. The crates arrive with their own crow bar. Isn't that fun? With the holidays just around the corner I'm already stressing out about what to give the guys in my life; husband, father and brother.  If the guys in your life are as hard to buy for as the guys in mine you should really take a look at all the things Man-Crates have to offer. I know my guys in my life would love this one. 

I was asked to include a few essential holiday items to cure the holiday stressors and explain why. 


Wine- Well, why not! Wine puts me at ease no matter what the stressor is. 

Scotch Tape (endless supply)- I am forever losing my scotch tape when wrapping presents!

Christmas Classics- Holiday movies always put me at ease. No matter the stress I'm feeling holiday movies make me happy. I just love White Christmas, Elf, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Frosty, and any other one I can get my hands on. 

Checklists- If I don't write it down it is like it never ever happened. There are so many things going on during the holiday season I feel like I'm forgetting them already. Keeping track of the events as well as all the gifts I need to purchase can be tough so I make sure I always use a checklist. 

My iPhone- I love taking pictures especially during the holiday season and since it's Jack's 1st Christmas I want to chronicle every precious moment. My iPhone will be charging!!! 

Amazon and Target Gift Cards- Of course some added cash would be nice as would an endless supply of gift cards!
I would love to use these to complete my holiday shopping.

Most importantly and above all the this listed here what I really would want for the holidays is more time! I want more time to do all the fun activities, more time to enjoy while shopping for the perfect gift, more time to watch my son enjoy all of his first Christmas. 

So what are your cures for the stress of the holidays?
