Hello everyone! ALLISON here and I'm sharing a quick and festive mini gift box to tuck some yummy bath bombs into. Christmas is my most favourite season! Im the person who puts my tree up the first week of November and would put it up earlier if I wouldn't be judged. lol. I love the lights, the music, the food, and of course the family and visitors I get to spend the holiday season with.
