    Dear Collin,

    Dahhhling- you did a wonderful job! You always shine bright and are doing us all such a service and with a smile! For reals- you are so fun & silly- I love it and I think we all do- you are the type of gal I’d love to get a latte with and talk coupons! Have a wonderful holiday season and I am totally stealing your bow on your head look- wondered if I could stick a thin headband thru it and make it stay! happy Holidays and please keep on being silly- it makes your website a joy to visit!

    I LOVE the angry orchard drinks made as a reindeer. I thought it was so cute fun that I was laughing so hard I was crying. I told my husband that is the gift he will be giving at work if they draw names. Love it!

    That was the funniest thing I have seen in a while. You have so much fun! Although, LOL, we can go to jail in our state for buying bath salts. That’s right! They are smoking them here so they are considered a drug. I think that’s why I may have peed a little when you said to give them to your neighbors. ๐Ÿ™‚ Still laughing!

      lol the bath salts you buy in the stores aren’t the same as the bath salts drugs. The name is deceptive and it might look similar (powdery or crystallized), but I assure you, it’s completely different from the stuff on the market. No one will bust through your door to arrest you while you’re taking a relaxing bath ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thanks for the ideas & a good laugh!

    I didn’t know they had a Target brand sea salt caramel hot cocoa (at least that’s what it looks like in the video). I’ll be running out to get that, yum.

    I love your personality! If you’re a loser then losers rock! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I did the ReinBEERS last year for each of my cousins and their wives! I a cute tag to go with it that said Rudolph the Red Nosed ReinBEER! Was a definite hit! And there’s so many great seasonal ales to go along with the theme! Love you Collin!

    i am in LOVE with your kitchen!!!!

  15. tam childers

    Thanks for the laugh, very funny.

  16. Manuela

    I just love how real you are! I love the ideas how simple I alsways think complicated “oh I need to buy this and that for them” but some simple home made thoughtful things is what counts.. Thank you

  17. Jess

    Such a cute and fun video ๐Ÿ™‚ my kids and I watch all of them together because you’re so entertaining (in a good way!) thanks for keeping it real – we’re not all Pinterest mavens!

    My mom loves those Dollar Tree bath salts! You did such a great job with these crafts! I have a hard time with DIY, because I am a neurotic perfectionist. I think it’s all about learning what your limitations are. You have lots of awesome qualities and if craftiness is not one of them, that is certainly okay! Thanks for sharing!

  19. Jackie

    Happy Holidays to you! Thank you for spreading the holiday spirit! Especially the reindeer beer, CHEERS to you!

    I know you said not making your own, BUT here is a super easy sugar scrub recipe I saw online that as couponers we get the ingredients cheap, throw them in a cute container and voila! You have an easy homemade gift

    White Sugar + Dawn Olay Renewal Dish Soap (Pink in color)
    All you have to do is pour the sugar in a container and add the dish soap slowly until the mixture is the right consistency.

    I know when CVS had Dawn 3/$1.00 I had bought a small bottle of the Olay to try, now I’m using it to make sugar scrub for the women on my list, got a cute glass jar for 76 cents at The Christmas Tree Shop and I have an awesome gift that didn’t cost me an arm and a leg.

    Happy Holidays!!
