A Very Swingin’ Christmas Playlist

Playlist December 22nd, 2023

Our Most Stylish Christmas Soundtrack

Christmas is almost here and if somehow you’ve managed to avoid getting into the holiday spirit thus far, well, it’s about time you did! When I posted our Thanksgiving playlist last month, I mentioned that I am quite particular about when Christmas music should be played — never ever before Thanksgiving! But once that Thanksgiving turkey makes its transition to leftovers, it’s game on and this little playlist has provided the holiday soundtrack in our home — including our annual Christmas cocktail party — for quite a few years at this point.

I like my Christmas music exactly like I like my cocktails — simple, classic, and served with style. So when I’m mixing up an Old-Fashioned or imbibing an old-time holiday favorite (a Seagram’s 7 and ginger ale highball) the swinging sounds of this playlist are the perfect accompaniment. So whether you’re traveling for the holidays, staying in, or hosting, queue up our Christmas playlist to get into the holiday spirit — with style.

Have a Merry Christmas, everyone!

Stylishly Yours,

Setting the mood for your space requires attention to a few specific details: lighting, music and sound (or lack-there-of), color, and so on. But there is nothing that can set the mood quite like fragrance. Aromas evoke memories in a heartbeat; they can transport us through time and location. They can put us at ease, provide a sense of luxury, or set a romantic tone.

In fact, scent and memory are inextricably linked. Scents jog our memory faster than most anything else because we are hardwired for that association. Because of this, having a pleasing aromas in our homes is incredibly important.
