Christmas Life Hacks: Steamed Milk, Pie Birds, Sound Blocking Curtains, and More

Happy Friday! If you’re big into houseplants now is a great time to pop over to your local stores and check their indoor plant sections for clearance items. It’s Christmas in November for folks who love the thought of $5 plants. This might be the part where I confess I loaded up the back of an SUV with plants for under $100 last night. Don’t worry, I’ll figure out where to put them all. Maybe.

If you’re more focused on holiday prep than jamming another monstera into your already plant-packed house though, we’re still here with the scoop for you. Today Amazon has Kitchen-Aid stand mixers on sale—whether you’re shopping for yourself or a friend, it’s a great price on an indispensable kitchen workhorse. More gift ideas? We have a pile of fun gifts for adult Disney fans here, it’s the newest entry in our Holiday Insert Year Gift Guide.

Here’s some more great content from the week for you to check out:
