Winter is nearly upon us, and you know what that means – winter activities! There is an abundance of fun things to do with your family in the winter, so don’t think that just because it’s cold that means you need to sit around at home all winter. Get out and do something!

1. Sledding
If you live near the mountains or someplace where the snow is inevitable, enjoy it! Go pick up some inner tubes or snow disks and have a family sledding day. You can race down the hills, and back up them. Make a train and slide down the hill. Just remember to wear sunscreen and pack water and snacks.

2. Ice Skating
Whether you live where it’s cold enough to have an outdoor ice skating rink or have an indoor one close by, this is a great activity to do with the whole family. Be sure to dress in layers for this activity, because it’s cold on the ice, but you’ll warm up fast once you start having fun. Go out for hot cocoa afterwards and create some fun memories.

3. Horse Drawn Carriage
How fun would it be to get pulled around by horses in a sleigh? Many places do this at this time of the year, but an awesome place to go is the elk range in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. You can go on a sleigh ride through the elk range, where thousands of elk are within 20 feet of you. There are many more fun things to do in Teton County like this in the winter.

4. Build a Snowman
If you have snow in the winter, building a snowman is a must! You can have a snowman building contest with your kids and give them prizes for the most creative, best looking, etc. Bring out carrots, rocks, sticks, hats, and scarves for your kids to dress their snowmen up with. You can even have everyone work together to build the biggest snowman ever!

5. Build a Fire
Whether you have a fireplace indoors or a firepit in the backyard, build a fire and sit around it as a family. Tell stories and drink hot cocoa. This is a great time to talk to your children about being thankful and doing service for others at this time of the year. Let each child take a turn to tell a story or to tell how they will do an act of service for someone this season.

With the holidays just around the corner, many spouses might be stressing out about what to get their loved one for Christmas. We have come up with this list of gifts that will show your significant other that you care. Don’t wait until the last minute to get her a gift. Start now and put some thought into it, whether you are making it yourself or buying something you know she’ll love, make it count.
1. Monograms
For the home decorator, find a beautiful piece to hang up in the bedroom. With monogram vinyl letters, you can give her something that represents your wedding day and your love for one another. Whether it’s monogram wood letters or vinyl letters in a beautiful frame, she is sure to love it and can find the perfect place in your home to place it.
2. Manicure in a Jar
Does your girl like to pamper herself? Or better yet, does she enjoy it when you pamper her? Most women do, so it will be hard to go wrong with this gift. Observe her for a couple weeks and take notice when shopping if she points out certain makeup or nail polish colors that she wishes she had. If you don’t already know it, discover what her favorite color is and use that to put some thought into this gift. Find all the items you need for this sweet gift at Weekend Craft.
3. Mug
Is coffee a staple in your relationship? Maybe a mug is a suitable gift for her. And yes, even though it’s a mug, you can still put some thought into it. What’s her favorite show, phrase, movie, character, or color? Find a mug that represents her personality, or one that will make her laugh out loud. You can find this cute mug at Sweet Water Décor, but don’t just take the one we like, find one that she will love.
4. Couples Gift
Get her a gift that you can both share. Whether it’s matching sweatshirts, pajama pants, mugs, t-shirts, or these sweet pillowcases, do the couple thing. Of course, not everyone loves the matchy thing, but if she does, then this could be the perfect gift! Take some time to reflect on the things she likes the most, and put that into one of these great couples’ gifts.
5. Recipe Box
Is she the cook in the family? Then get her this beautiful personalized wooden recipe box. She can save all of her favorite recipes in it, and be reminded of you every time she cooks. You can even go a step further and make her one yourself if you’re handy with woodworking.

Don’t just take our word for gifts that she will love. Pay notice to the things she talks about this holiday season, she may be dropping hints to make sure you get her just what she wants. Or she might not know what she wants, and a thoughtful gift will be just the thing she needs.
