    Full disclosure: We don't believe that the holidays are just for kids. In fact, we still have no problem sucking down a glass of eggnog and accepting a present or two. Only now, as an adult, our nog is spiked, and we can actually reciprocate in the gift-giving department. It's a beautiful thing. Sometimes, though, even visions of dancing sugarplums can't help with those holiday-induced headaches — and no, we don't just mean running out of wrapping paper.

    Whether you’ve got issues with your in-laws or are battling winter weight gain (hello, cheese platter!), the expert tips ahead will help you get through the season like a boss. Yep — this survival guide may be the best gift you've ever received.
