Are you ready for the holidays? If you asked me a week ago, I would have said no way- it’s not time yet! But after shopping the last few days and seeing the fun holiday items all over, plus with Thanksgiving less than a week away, it really is here. Time to shop! With two of the best shopping days of the year fast approaching (Black Friday and Cyber Monday, of course) it is time to get serious with gifts and holiday cheer. If you are still struggling to get into holiday mode, maybe decorating will help to spur you on. We are going to have a little holiday kickoff party with our girlfriends to make a wreath similar to the one pictured above. Isn’t it pretty and super cool? Check it CB2’s blog for directions on how to make the wreath, too.
One thing is for sure this year: there are deals to be had, if only we look and take advantage of them. Have you been noticing all of the Facebook Fan Page, Twitter and E-mail promotions from fabulous brands like West Elm, Restoration Hardware and more? (P.S. dear Pottery Barn, you need a Facebook Fan Page and Twitter profile! Update: Yay Pottery Barn! As of early December 2009, Pottery Barn is officially on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube!) Well, at Office With a View, we will continue to keep you posted on the best deals we have seen for the office and home. Visit the Deals + Shopping section for a list of online discount codes and more. One of the best deals right now? 30% of anything at Swoozies (Ends 11/22)! I’d tell you what I’m ordering, but then Britt would know part of her Christmas gifts! :)
