Break out your favorite sugar cookie dough and get to rolling and cutting. From traditional holiday shapes to more creative types, we've rounded up 20 cookie cutters that will have you pumped for this year's cookie decorating sessions.
We get it—the holidays are expensive, especially when you feel obligated to buy a gift for everyone in what feels like an ever-expanding circle of close acquaintances. That's why we rounded up a collection of high-quality gifts without that high price tag. At $15 and under, these gifts won't break the bank. Plus, they're items that people actually want to receive.
Step aside, coal—Macaroni and cheese-flavored candy canes are now officially the worst thing you can find in your stocking on Christmas morning.

Christmas is a holiday filled with anticipation, from festively wrapped gift boxes piquing your curiosity to counting down the days before you can tear into your annual haul of presents. (Of course, it's the season of giving, I should note.) One way to bide your time from December 1 onward is to get yourself an advent calendar, giving you a tiny door to open each day leading up to the 25th, and preferably one that offers up tasty treats inside, too.
Holiday season brings with it joy, cheer, and, let's face it, a drink or two too many. Between office parties, family gatherings, going out with friends, and just toasting the holidays at home alone (hey, no judgment), it's easy to overdo it in the alcohol department and wake up the next day with a monumental headache. And if you are no longer in your 20s (welcome to the club), you may realize that an Advil and a good breakfast isn't the perfect cure anymore.
Of all the things we love about the holidays—the carols, the lights, the parties—baking cookies just might be our favorite. This fun activity not only fills the house with wonderful aromas of toasty sweetness and spice, it creates lasting memories for family and friends. The only challenge when it comes to holiday cookie baking? Which cookie to choose! You’re likely familiar with the shortbread and sugar sorts—but have you tried your hand at a spritz, or a linzer? Do you know the difference between a gingersnap and a gingerbread? Is a windowpane the same as a stained-glass cookie?
It's finally December, which means you're going to have a lot of holiday events coming up. If you don't want to wear a jingling elf costume or a full-body Santa costume, you're going to need an easier way to show your Christmas cheer. How better than the classic ugly sweater? Here are some sweater options that celebrate your love of food.
