Science proves that decorating early for the holidays makes you happier. Well this might explain why all of us here at Ivy are humming holiday tunes all day long- we’ve been decorated and ready for the holiday season for weeks.

Nothing beats the holiday season for me personally- not even pumpkin spice lattes or those endless summer days by the lake. The smells of fresh pine, the twinkling lights, the Hallmark movie marathons, the precious memories with our families- all of those moments are some of my FAVORITE THINGS!

And, speaking of favorite things, our top picks are back and better than ever! This year, we are showcasing our best sellers at a huge added-value in four gift sets. Best of all, 50% of each gift set will go directly to the Joyful Ornament Fund and this year’s recipient — Ellie Hatcher.

You can read Ellie’s incredible story below and add a little magic to her holiday season this year when you purchase one of our Favorite Things.

To each and every one of you, from the bottom of my heart — Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
