Holiday decor that doesn't take up too much space

The holidays are fast approaching. Both my husband and I come from families who love the holidays, so we both are super excited to have our own place to holiday-ify and celebrate together. However, the problem is we have NO room to store any decorations post-holidays. How do the Homies who live in small spaces decorate their homes without generating the tubs of decor to store away later?

Homie holiday decor: A peek into your homes

I put out the call for our Homies to send us their holiday decorations. Damnit, I want to see how y'all offbeat the holidays. And WOW did I get some amazing peeks into your homes. We've got alien-head tree-toppers, Mid-century Christmanukkah decor, beer ornaments, and trees that are both sideways AND upside down!

Non-sucky, non-overdone, holiday music

I've taken the interwebs to find some of my favorite non-sucky holiday tunes. A lot of them are so non-overdone that they're songs you may not have ever heard before from artists you've never heard of. And some of them are songs you've heard a lot, but from artists that make them sound new again. Grab a cup of cider and have a listen…

You can totally make these chocolate marshmallow dreidel treats

I celebrated the first night of Hanukkah with my bestest buddies, both Jewish and gentile. Now most of you might remember that I am kitchen-challenged. So I was shocked when my friend Kimmy told me that she would be putting me in charge of making the chocolate dreidel treats a la freaking Martha Stewart. Homies, you'll be so proud: with a LOT of coaching and hand-holding, I made the chocolate marshmallow dreidel and, therefore, so can you!

Gifts for people you really like but hardly know

Holiday shoppers, stop stressing: Offbeat Home has gotchu covered this year. All this week we'll be bringing you helpful Homie shopping guides. First up: gifts for people you like but don't know that well. This can be co-workers, perhaps a couple of in-laws, what about your trainer or tutor? These things will please EVERYONE, and make you look like you give a shit about 'ol what's-his-name.

Agnostic seasonal decor: it's winter, not Christmas

I'd love to get some ideas for non-Christmas-holiday decorations. DIY would be especially treasured. Something more winter solstice-based…or really just not anything overly Santa Claus/presents/Christian-centered.

I am really awful at bringing details together, and I would love some offbeat advice!
