    Attending a holiday party? Don't go empty handed! Spread love by bringing the party host a gift. Anything from a special Christmas ornament to a decorative dessert will do. Still not sold on either of the two? You can never go wrong with bringing some wine!

    While we're still on the topic of holiday party etiquette, we thought it would be great to include the power of card games. If you don't want to bring wine or food to a party, gift the party with your wide array of entertaining games! Holiday parties can be fun, but sometimes we need something to take the fun up a level. Card games are a great way to keep the party going and entertaining the masses.

    An example of a great card game is Cards Against Humanity. If you're looking for awkward humor, this is the game for you! Check out their website and try it with your friends! You can read all about the game at www.cardsagainsthumanity.com.

  3. Staycation Spa Night

    Want to get away for the holidays with bae but money is tight? Have a staycation! A staycation is a great inexpensive way to switch things up and enjoy your time at home.

    Dress up in a nice outfit and go to that new restaurant that just opened up in town. Don't want to go out? Stay in and catch up on that TV series you've been meaning to watch or binge watch the latest movies. To spice up the staycation create your own a spa night. Grab those bath bombs you've been lusting over and enjoy a nice evening with your bae at home. Pour yourself some Moskato Life wine, pop that popcorn and enjoy your night. Don't forget to light your favorite candles to set the mood. Go 'head, sis. You deserve it!



  4. Volunteer Your Time

    The holiday season is a great time to spread love and peace. It's also a great time to volunteer and help someone in need. You can choose to volunteer at your local church, homeless shelter or even give a hand to a friend/ family member. Go ahead and offer to babysit that niece or nephew of yours. We're sure your friends and family will appreciate the hand! It's time to give love and spread cheer. Do your daily good deed and your holidays will be bright!

  5. Throw Your Own Holiday Party

    It's one thing to attend a holiday party with your gifts, but it's another to actually throw your own. Holiday parties are a great way to get friends and family together for a good time. With everything that's going on in the world, it's a great idea to host a gathering filled with love and fun. Turn up your holiday party by making it potluck style. Have guests bring a dish of their choosing and taste different varieties of food. Don't forget to have your card games ready! Enjoy this season with your loved ones and make every day count! Decorate your house, call your friends over and spread that holiday cheer. 

  6. Pay It Forward

    There's something special about going the extra mile to make someone's day. Next time you're at your favorite drive-thru spot, go the extra mile and offer to pay for the order of the person behind you. If the person hasn't ordered yet, you can simply leave a $20 bill with the cashier and have them use it to pay for orders until the $20 bill runs out. It's a simple task but it might mean the world to the person behind you. Hopefully they'll continue the trend and pay it forward as well!

  7. Pamper Yourself

    How can you spread love if you don't love yourself? Our last tip to spreading love this holiday season is to pamper and love yourself first! Got a bag you've been wanting to buy? Buy it. Have a massage appointment you want to make? Make it. Want to get your nails done for the holidays? Do it. Do anything that makes you feel pampered, loved and happy. Once that step is complete, then you've unlocked the power to spread love and cheer to the world. Remember, it's all about the love, peace and soul! Loving yourself first makes it easier to love others.
