    I’m needing ideas right about now. You’ve got some good ones!

    One of my favorite holiday treats is baklava, or Italian Cream Cake with pecans.

      I don’t think I ever had cream cake. But it sounds divine!

    I make Ricotta Cookies at Christmas and all of my friends and family request them. They are my favorite holiday dessert.

    I really love this list. You have some great last minute ideas! The Bag-all My Vanity Travel Case is adorable! I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas! Pumpkin Cheese cake sounds good. I have a couple of favorites for the holidays. I love Turtle Cake and Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies ( the round puffy buttery kind with actual frosting)

    Hi! Anna

    Love your blog! Thanks for sharing these great gift ideas! I usually over do it with food and desserts, cookies & sweet treats, Bouche’ de Noel etc… but this year I’m keeping it simple and homemade. I’ll be making a red velvet bundt with cream cheese drizzle and a flan. Feliz Navidad!

    Merry Christmas and happy New Year to you and your family. My mom makes amazing mini cheesecakes for Christmas that are my absolute favorite dessert. But anything with cream cheese works for me!

    Carmelitas brownies – brownie later, caramel layer, then more brownies on top! Or just anything chocolate!

    I’d have to say Nanaimo bars are my favorite holiday dessert. They aren’t really a traditional dessert but this is the only time of year that we put in the effort to make them.

    You have the best gift guides and I love your Save vs Splurge comparisons! ❤️ My favorite holiday dessert is rum balls. I make them with Malibu rum so they have a hint of coconut flavor. It’s mandatory that I make them every year. My family goes crazy for them! ????????

    I really love all your ideas. Lately I’ve been scrolling through instagram to find some inspiration on my fashion lol. I started following you, but when I follow people I need to feel a connection with them, because if not, it’s boring and I end up unfollowing them. Anyways I just wanted to say that not only do you help me with outfit ideas, but also with ideas on what to get my family, and I am happy and look forward to you everyday stories on instagram. Thank you for sharing. 🙂
    As a holiday dessert, well I don’t really enjoy sweets, however, when I do eat a dessert I go all out with the White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle from the Cheesecake factory.

    Chocolate lava cake is my favorite! It’s oooey gooey center of melted chocolate that pours out is simply divine! Especially when cake is served fresh from the oven and warm. It’s definitely for special occasions like Christmas, Birthdays or Anniversaries.
