The Ultimate Holiday Survival Kit

Because Spending Time With Family and Friends can Leave You Feeling Less Than Merry!

I'm struggling to come to terms with the fact it's December already and that we're less than 2 weeks away from Christmas. I mean, really- where did the time go?

Knowing that most of us will be spending time with family and friends who we don't see often and who at times, we fail to get along with, I put together a survival kit to get you through this holiday season!

For Those Of Us Who Need Our Herbal or Medicinal Amenities

Vintage Pill Boxes from Etsy. These are just a few that I own- pill boxes are some of my favorite items to collect while traveling. They're genuinely a godsend when you want to be discreet and don't want to become the topic of family discussion!

Smokebuddy Personal Air Filter for those of us who've developed a vaping habit and need smoke breaks during Christmas dinner, but don't want to go outside.

Tip Top Proper Espresso Martini Cocktails in a Tiny Can. These are perfect for you and your fun cousin to sip on without drawing too much attention to yourselves.

BONUS: If you or your family like hot toddies, you need to order Arcane Whiskey ASAP. Distilled from beer (I know crazy right?!), this shit is smooth, you'll thank me later- I promise.

Also, none of these links are sponsored or affiliate links. Trust, I'll let you know when they are!

For Those Of Us Who Want To Avoid All Political Discussions

I get it! If you spent last Thanksgiving and Christmas arguing with your bigoted family members and plan on kicking back this year, these are for you:

Board games, board games, BOARD GAMES! Stick to the classics like UNO, Jenga, and Scrabble.

If you're a gamer or streamer, consider bringing your console with you and playing Trivial Pursuit and Jeopardy with the family. The learning curve of using the controllers might seem overwhelming, but it beats arguing with your chauvinistic uncle over why women should have full autonomy over their bodies right?

For Those Of Us Who Know Eventually, The Toxicity Will Happen

SHOUT OUT to our favorite toxic family- The Roys!

I'm a huge fan of Insight Timer, the meditation app. It's free and full of great guided mediations to calm you down when you feel you're about to snap.

For Those Of Us Who Find Ourselves Bored To Tears

Get the We're Not Really Strangers Family Edition Pack. If you feel you don't really know your family at all, this is for you!

Watch The English on Prime Video. The mini-series is incredible and while it has some innuendo, it doesn't have any sex scenes that will make you feel embarrassed to watch with your parents.

Well, That's It!
