Do you ever wear half-zip sweaters? After reading Joanna’s theory — that they make everyone instantly more attractive — I decided to try one, which comes in five colors. Turns out, she was right! It was an unexpected but pleasant surprise. (Also, how good is this color combo?) — Jannelle
My friend Erin (of hiking and work motto and breakfast fame) also had a holiday wrapping idea: encourage your kids to create portraits of the person receiving the gift. They can be simple crayon drawings or more elaborate scrap-paper collages. How fun is that? — Joanna
As part of my plan for mood lighting at home, I signed up for a Keap candles subscription, and I’m excited to experience the different scents this winter. Keap has been my favorite for years, ever since I smelled this one in a cool restaurant bathroom and fell in love. Their candles are poured to order in Kingston, New York, using coconut wax, nature-inspired scents and reusable glass tumblers. Bonus: Get 10% off your first order with code CUPOFJO. — Joanna
