Who needs a little holiday kick start this year!? We’ve been in hibernation for so long that I almost forgot what it’s like to gather and celebrate. Think back to one year ago: Christmas 2020 was more or less cancelled and with safety restrictions in full-force, so many souls were alone for the holidays. Exhausted by the pandemic, our communities went into December cautiously on edge, instead with jubilance. Now that’s what I call a friggin’ buzzkill. 

But this year? Things are going to be different this year. December 2021 is our chance to make up for lost time and (safely) celebrate with the people we missed last year (if possible). You’ll find me stuffing the shit out of those stockings, belting out carols and making out with my own personal husband, Aaron under the mistletoe.  

There’s no time to play small–give big and live big in December because we all know how fast things can change in this season. Reconnection is the answer, sweet ones, and we were never meant to walk this season alone. 

The Jody Holiday Box  

My little elves have been carefully curating the most amazing items for this year’s Jody Holiday Box!!! Can you even? This box features products that are cozy, indulgent, hand-crafted and gorgeous—just in time for the December rush. It’s essentially a hug-in-a-box, and we think it’s the perfect way to spread around some hope and high kicks this holiday season if you’re looking for that one special gift. 

Our Favourite Vendors 

We like to support local companies that make things from scratch – so you can feel good about where you spend your hard-earned holiday dollars. And, psssst. Some of these special vendors just MIGHT be making an appearance in The Jody Holiday Box…
