Tis The Season

Well it hit me this morning that it's almost Christmas time. It happens every year and it always plays out the same exact way. November rolls around and I think to myself "this is the year...the year that I will have all of my Christmas shopping done before December. I will not be that person out running around like a maniac drinking mini bottles of wine and string cheese while I try to get all my shopping accomplished on December 24th." And then every year I wind up face planting into my steering wheel screaming out in anguish about how much I hate Christmas shopping.

But this year it's going to be different. You know why it's going to be different? Because as of November 3rd I already know what I want to give everybody on my Christmas list and none of it requires wrapping, bows, or gift receipts. Say whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat you may ask. Allow me to fill you in on a thing I like to call giving the gift of adventure. Not giving gifts that get set on a shelf in a storage room, but rather giving an experience that will leave memories for a lifetime. Especially memories of what a great daughter, sister, daughter-in-law, etc that I am ;) What the world needs is not another bird clock, but rather a cocktail in your hand while laying out next to a lazy river and the ocean breeze whipping in your hair. Feel me on this one? 

It all came about when we stayed this weekend at a Marriott hotel in Nashville. You see, I have a thing for Marriott properties. Never ever have I been let down by their quality, comfort, or bacon and cheese breakfast sandwiches. Here is a little glimpse of our new favorite Nashville hotel. 

While there I learned that they have 25 US Marriott Resort properties ranging from Florida to Hawaii that are stocked full of pools, spas, signature cocktails, and all sorts of other incredible features that your family and friends need to benefit from this Holiday season. What makes this all the more enticing for gift giving purposes is that Marriott is offering a Pick Your Package where you can give not only overnight accommodations, but items such as massages, rounds of golf, or resort credit. Tell me you wouldn't be the favorite person in anybody's life if you gave them that this Christmas season.

So what are you waiting for? Be that person who has their shopping done before anybody else has even started. Pick Your Package now with Marriott.com and get ready for hugs, screams, and all sorts of love that you will receive.

  1. My husband and I have a Marriott timeshare in Aruba and LOVE it!! :-)

  2. Yep. You nailed Christmas gift giving this year. And I have to be done by December or no one will get a dang thing because I get this really yucky stress when surrounded by crazy people with credit cards in malls.

  3. Wow - this is soooooo wonderful, I know everyone on my list would love to receive this for their Christmas gift!! How fun!

    Too bad...I just remembered - I don't have that kind of money to give this gift to everyone on my list. Boo!

  4. I'm making it my goal to not be running around with mini wines and string cheeses, too. Because the last thing I want is to be caught out and about, gushing over a great deal with stringy mozzarella hanging from my mouth. I could go for a vacation, so I feel you 100% girlfriend.



I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
