In case you haven’t noticed, we have a major style crush on Dallas based blogger (see VenzEdits) and RewardStyle founder Amber Venz. Lucky for us, she’s found the time between traveling the globe spreading the RewardStyle gospel to not only sit for a photo shoot for our September issue (click here for the story) but to contribute her top picks for happy holiday gifting.

What is your favorite thing about the holiday season?

I love the spirit of the season. Just seeing all of the Christmas lights around town makes me joyful.

What is the quirkiest/most unique gift someone has given you?

Baxter once gave me a test tube that you spit in and send off to a lab, so they can tell you more about your health risks.

What’s your holiday shopping M.O.?

Wait for the sales and order it online. It is such a busy season and I would rather spend time with family than at the mall.

What are your favorite holiday traditions?

Hanging Christmas lights. This is the first Christmas that I live in a house of my own and I hung our Christmas lights the first week of November. I was too excited to wait.
