We are knee-deep in the December holidays…Hanukkah began a few days ago and Christmas is but two weeks away. Feeling a little more like a Grinch than Mrs. Claus? We hear you, the holidays are supposed to be one thing (magical, beautiful) but there's also tons of stress involved. This week, we're working on reinvigorating our holiday spirit by immersing ourselves in photos of glowing lights, easy crafts, and all the other trimmings of the season. Just one look at a themed Christmas tree or a post-modern menorah and we're back in the swing of things. Naturally, Pinterest totally delivers: the site is so perfect for inventive holiday ideas. Click through for the best of the festive bunch — and be prepared to be de-Scrooged.
If this pin doesn't immediately make you want to lace up while also finding some benefit to the frigid cold, you might be immune to holiday adorableness.
All Wrapped Up
Always on the lookout for creative holiday wrap jobs? Look no further, this one is colorful and striking.
Not too much to say about this rad treat besides that it looks totally delicious.
We are head-over-heels into these minimalist candlesticks—wouldn't a handful of them make a great modern menorah?
Most Magical Light
So this entryway is just a little overkill, but there's no denying the magic contained in those tiny fairy lights.
Let's Throw a Party
This sweet little table is just what kind of party we're looking to throw: modern, bright, and happy.
Deck the Halls
Get super into the spirit with this amazing eucalpytus garland—by Martha Stewart, natch.
These DIY candles are subtly perfect for the holidays, but we can totally see these working in January and beyond.
Bringing the outdoors in has never been so adorable.
Wishing You a Goth Christmas
We love a good, traditionally decorated Christmas tree, but this Nightmare Before Christmas tree is really awesome.
