The holiday season is nearly underway and we know what you’re thinking: things are going to get hectic.

 It’s a time for travel. Waiting in lines. And often, large crowds. But we tend to believe it’s best classified as the perfect time for togetherness.

From lighting the Menorah to gathering around the table, this is a week to put in some serious QT. There’s nothing quite like surrounding yourself with near and dear ones. Reminiscing about the past. Toasting to the future. And, of course, indulging in your favorite foods.

It isn’t just about the incredible things you’ll be eating. It’s about being with the ones you love. But indulging is also fantastic. Which is why we recommend bringing a box of your favorite chocolate to the celebration.

Things get easy from there: just open the box, and let the magic happen. A multitude of oohs and ahhs are sure to follow.
