For most of the year, Instagram is where we go to envy things other people have (Guilty as charged!). The magical thing about the holiday season is that once you’ve finished your Thanksgiving turkey, the site becomes a mecca for wonderful wintertime ideas. Decor, tasty dishes, gifts and more…and we’ve saved you the hassle of digging through the seemingly endless #Christmas tag to find the best of the best. These well-curated feeds will cover your every want and need this season!
For Tablescape Goals: Rent Vintage Chicago
Nothing says “I’ve got this hosting thing down” like the perfect holiday dinner table. To really elevate your standards for an ideal setup, head to Rent Vintage Chicago‘s beautiful feed of vintage dinnerware. The rental company highlights a range of well-designed holiday tablescapes and settings, from rustic to elegant (but always with the perfect vintage touch). If you can’t use their services directly, check out their stunning photography for a crash course in how to effortlessly mix vintage and modern styles!
For Sending Cheer: Miss Molly Vintage
As someone who’s lived through 20-plus years of awkward family Christmas photos, I can say with confidence that sometimes you should just say it with words. That’s why you should be turning to Miss Molly Vintage this year: their feed features gorgeous calligraphic holiday cards, each one well-designed while being warm and welcoming. Paired with cozy plaid stockings and ornaments, and I’m in a seriously festive mood. Shop small and stylishly!
For Festive Decor: Fynes Designs
Everyone has an individual decorating style, but who can say no to classic Christmas cheer? As soon as I saw the red-cheeked Santa on Virginia Fynes’ feed, I was reminded of my grandma’s 1960’s holiday decor, but with a fresh twist. A modern advent calendar, festive gift wrapping and other seasonal tricks fill this bright feed, and many of them can be replicated on the Fynes Designs blog. You’ll get inspired to get crafting, which is essentially just an excuse to blast holiday music and snack on some cookies. You’re welcome.
For Handmade Inspiration: Un Peu Sauvage
As a dedicated wintertime knitter, chunky handmade scarves have been a holiday gift-giving staple of mine for the past few years. There’s something really nice about receiving something handmade just for you, and Giulia of Un Peu Sauvage has been sharing some beautiful projects that anyone would want in their stocking (she might even be able to knit the stocking itself). Her knitwear is clean and minimal, and presented in a snuggly winter setting among steaming tea and pine needles. Check out Giulia’s feed to feel like you’re crafting away somewhere in a rustic cabin, no skills required.
For Enviable Eats: Aimee Ryan
And finally, we’ve arrived at arguably the best reason to go on Instagram during the holidays: the sweets! Vegan blogger Aimee Ryan has been sharing delicious looking photography of her Christmas baking, and my appetite doesn’t appreciate it. From chocolate-orange pudding, to snowflake cookies and Danish butter trees, follow Aimee’s account for some motivation to try something new this year. Sometimes your go-to sugar cutouts need a little healthy competition.
