Six Ideas for Christmas Decorating or Giving

Because it will be here before we know it (Thanksgiving is already next week! How did that happen!?!?),  here are some fun items for Christmas decorating or giving.  :)

This lovely little ornament is sold by Arhaus for $9. Buy just one or two, fill them with your own magical items (or let your kids!), and hang them from the fixture above your dining table or in another fun place in your home. Be creative!

I love this burlap and poinsettia pillow from Pottery Barn. It says Christmas yet is still neutral enough to coordinate with any color scheme. I think it would be so fun to create a holiday pillow tradition. Buy just one new holiday pillow each year and see your collection grow!

To make it even easier to afford buying some pretty new holiday decorations, The Inspired Room and Reluctant Entertainer (two of my absolute favorite blogs with the nicest bloggers) are teaming up for a wonderful giveaway. You can win a KitchenAid stand mixer AND handmixer, a $100 Pottery Barn gift card, and an apron from the Hip Hostess. Visit either of their websites to enter (but be sure to leave a comment on both blogs to qualify). Good luck!!!

For a coastal-themed home, these shell-shaped candles from Wisteria are the perfect accessory. There is something so cozy about having lit candles at this time of year. Put a few of them on a pretty plate and light 'em up!

Deer are so "in" right now. Besides these cute cocktail napkins from Joss & Main, I've also seen pillow covers, place cards, you name it! Find your own way to incorporate this look into your holiday design scheme for a hip look.


And because no holiday home is complete without a party, here's a great book for planning a cookie swap. 

If making something is more your speed, try this yummy looking peppermint sugar scrub from The Idea Room. You can give it as a gift, or use it on yourself to zap the stress of the season. I cannot wait to try it at home (both the making and the bathing!!).

Whatever you choose to do to celebrate the holidays, though, my wish for all of you is that you will truly enjoy this time of year! :)


  1. We are often insane with happiness. We are also very unhappy for reasons neither of us can do anything about. Like being separated. Flights to Lagos
    Cheap Flights to Lagos
    Cheap Air Tickets to Lagos

    1. Airline tickets would also be a good gift!
