My husband and I got married on New Year's Eve, so the holidays are extra special for us (plus he can never forget our anniversary!). Now that we are coming up on one year of newlywed life, I'm excited to celebrate the holidays for the first time as a married couple.
The traditions we've shared for several years feel more special now that it is official. One of the highlights of the season is when we host our family for a latke party on Christmas Eve — like many couples, our families celebrate everything! Here are a few of my picks for your wedding registry that will help you completely nail the holidays for years to come:
The snuggle is real. Cozy up by the fire (or the Netflix fire) with your loved ones, as you drink hot cocoa and watch old movies. The more the merrier with this one! ("Trestles" oversized throw, $184, Pom Pom at Home available at Zola)
Set the mood through the senses. You and your S.O. will absolutely love this candle by Farmhouse Pottery — it certainly inspires the seasonal nostalgia! ("Wassail" candle, $42, Farmhouse Pottery available at Zola)
Having a fun doormat immediately makes your guests feel at ease. Plus, it is the perfect accessory to have on snowy nights to avoid a slushy entryway. Both your holiday guests and your neighbors will enjoy this fun little accent. ("Neighbors" doormat, $50, Reed Wilson Design available at Zola)

Botanical Leaf Menorah
This year, we're really excited to celebrate Hanukkah with my nephew — it's such a wonderful holiday for little kids! (Botanical leaf menorah, $200, Michael Aram available at Zola)
Music is always a must when entertaining your guests. Throw it back with a turntable, but keep it forward with a Crosley that allows you to play any format of music you can think of. (Turntable with detachable speakers, $100, Crosley available at Zola)
