In the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it can be hard to find that perfect gift for someone. No need to worry! This blog post is full of creative ideas for Christmas gifts. There are a variety of items in different price ranges so you’re sure to find just what you’re looking for!
-For your favorite baker, cook or aspiring chef, try a new recipe book. There are many options to choose from including books for gluten free cooking and vegan recipes!
-A gift of fresh flowers is always welcome during the holidays. Pick up some tulips or calla lilies that will brighten someone’s day in no time at all!
-Give a personalized ornament as an extra thoughtful present this year. You can have a loved one’s name printed on it (or yours!), so long as you order before December 18th, two weeks before Christmas Day. They make great stocking stuffers too!
*An example would be “Kristin” with her last initial next to it.
-Give the gift of a personalized mug! These are perfect for coffee or tea drinkers, and they can be customized with not only your loved one’s initial but also their name printed on it in whatever design you choose, such as cursive writing or a monogram. (We recommend ordering before December 18th to get them shipped in time!)
*An example would be “K” next to an image that looks like this: * __ __ __. Imagine what K might stand for though; Kristin? Katherine? Kirsten? All these options could really make people feel special when drinking from their new favorite cup!
-We also love the idea of a personalized throw blanket. This option is perfect for someone who loves to snuggle up with blankets, especially this time of year! Personalize it with their favorite color or even something more personal like their initial and they’ll never want to be without one again. (Order by December 18th if you’d like them in time!)
*An example might be “M” next to an image that looks * __ __ __ __. The M could really stand for many things – Mary? Margaret? Michelle? All these options would make people feel loved when receiving this as a gift!
-Shoes are always on point, no matter what the occasion or season! If your loved one has a hard time finding shoes that fit well, slip on their favorite color and make them feel as good about themselves as you do.
*An example might be “The perfect shade of blue” next to an image that looks * __ __ __ __. The deep blues would remind people of the ocean – whether they live in California or Maine! They’re not just looking great when wearing these slippers; they’ll look like walking art!
-Some people are very picky about how food tastes because it’s connected with memories from childhood and all the things we love about home cooked meals. However, some don’t mind any flavor at all. That’s why combining flavors is often so much fun! Try something new this year by cooking a new dish that incorporates flavors from your family’s heritage!
*An example of this might be “Bubble and Squeak” next to an image with bacon, sausage, fried eggs. This is the perfect way to incorporate American breakfast favorites into something more traditional for those who want it all.* __ __ __ *is also fantastic because you can customize the recipe according to everyone’s tastes – just like home cooking should feel! If someone still can’t find what they’re looking for then maybe consider giving them the gift of time by paying off their mortgage or getting them tickets around-the-world so they have somewhere fun to go every day while spending some quality time at home too.__
*This is a great way to go if the person you’re buying for already has everything they need. It’s nice to give someone all of their favorite things, but sometimes it might be better to buy them something that will make their life easier in some way.* __ *We know how much stress there can be when trying to find presents so this gift guarantees a worry-free Christmas morning!__
Tips: The best gifts are ones that show people care about who they’re giving it out too and not just what they want. It’s important during the hectic holiday season that we remember what the holidays are really about – making sure our loved ones feel special and cared for!
