As magical as the holiday season can be, there are a ton of stressors that can bring us all down. Frantic gift shopping, over-consumption of sugary treats, and never-ending party invites are just some of the things that can cause emotional, spiritual, and physical wear and tear. Remember to take some time for yourself this holiday season. It’s okay to be a little selfish every once in awhile. Go on a long walk with the dog or take in a movie on a night you would normally go out. Whatever it is, have a plan to relax!
Here at AllFreeKnitting, we totally understand how stressful the holiday season can be. That’s why we’ve rounded up our coziest Christmas blankets for your napping pleasure. A warm winter blanket is not only good for sleep, it’s good for the soul. Enjoy!
