One down, one to go. And by that I mean Thanksgiving is a wrap, but Christmas is coming an d you better get your act together and make your house feel festive or you might be considered a total failure. (Kidding. I just saw bad Moms Christmas, so I got carried away). Seriously, though, there's nothing better than feeling cozy and Christmas-y this time of year, so we asked designer Anita Yokota what she would do to make her home feel merry. Here's what she came up with.

1. Parachute Home x Jenni Kayne Alpaca Throw
super soft, grey neutral will match any home, and it's cozy to the max because it's real Alpaca. Bonus: It's large enough to wrap around yourself by the fireplace. Hot Toddy not included. 

2.  Parachute Home Linen Placemats
The merlot border is a effortless touch for the holidays. Minimalist design will fit it any table setting style. Soft linen.

3. PF Candle Co.
These candles smell so good and last a really long time. They give any room an organic, earthy feel. My favorite scent for holidays is Spruce — it makes your whole house smell like Christmas. They just released a Terracotta called called Juniper, that I'm also really loving for the holidays. The jar is earthy, and the scent is woodsy and smells like winter.

4. Suite One Studios
Platters are a great way to make a holiday table shine, and these from Suite One, are gorgeous. They're handmade and hand painted and I love how delicate they are. 

5. Jenni Kayne Pillows
Pairing these neutral pillows with holiday metallics or prints provides a warm, cozy and festive vibe.

6. Hearth and Hand for Target
Who isnt in love with Joanna Gaines’ style? Now she has a new line for Target which is perfect for the holidays. I LOVE these wreaths. They're so simple but pack a great holiday spirit punch.

7. Holiday Doormats
I love switching up my doormats as a way to make a great first impression. This one is modern and welcoming.
