Set a budget- It’s easy for holiday spending to get out of control. The generous spirit of the holidays is infectious, but this season can also be expensive, with costs ranging from travel and decorations to gifts and entertaining. Plan ahead to determine your budget and ensure that your holiday cheer won’t disappear when you get your credit card statement in January. The Holiday Budgeting Center is a great resource to help you get started with a holiday budget.

 Plan your menu- Entertaining is one of the most enjoyable parts of the holiday season, but with so much going on, a dinner party can easily become a cause for panic. Plan ahead by ordering a holiday ham for each of your parties or gatherings. Our Hickory Farms spiral-sliced ham is a great choice for a harried host, since it arrives frozen, fully cooked, spiral sliced and accompanied by easy prep instructions and a convenient ham glaze mix. Each ham serves 14 to 18 people, so you’ll be prepared for a crowd!

De-clutter- With all of the visitors, activities, and other hustle and bustle of the holidays, it’s a good idea to de-clutter your home. Clear out the coat closet, make space in the guest room, and take a look at the linen closet to ensure everything is ready to go for your holiday guests. This holiday organization plan from Organized Home can help you prepare.

You may also want to set up a holiday command center stocked with wrapping supplies, gift tags and even last-minute gifts. Our gourmet chocolate and other sweet gifts are always a welcome surprise, as are our nut gift baskets. And don’t forget to stock up on host or hostess gifts for the parties you plan to attend; our wine gift baskets are the perfect way to say “Thank you” to a gracious host.
