In the Magazine: December 2019

Our December issue is filled with everything you need to have a safe and happy holiday season.

This December we're focused on the holidays and what they mean for your family, since the holidays look different for everyone.

If you're determined to have the most holiday fun ever, our calendar is chock-full of ideas for how to spend pretty much every day in December. And when it comes to giving and receiving, we've got your ultimate guide to regifting (yes, it can be done!), as well as expert tips on how to declutter your home to make room for the toys your kids will receive this year. We hope you have a happy and healthy holiday season!
