The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
A collection of affordable Christmas gift ideas perfect for the home lover in your life! Plus, see how to gift each item in a fun, unique way!
I’m still working on decorating our home for Christmas. I squeeze in as much as I can in between nap times, which some days is trickier than others since little sweet pea doesn’t want to nap and really only wants to play and hang out with momma. I’m not complaining though. She’s good company and she likes to keep the conversation going with her excited shrieks and constant jabbering. She sure is fun!
If you’re like me though, you’re starting your Christmas shopping and looking for gift ideas. I’ve had fun putting together a collection of gift ideas and wanted to share them with you in case you need some ideas! But… I also wanted to take it one step further and tell you why I love each item, plus how I’d gift each item. Hopefully this helps get your creativity going!
Truth For Today Cards: These beautiful cards include 31 different scriptures and include original watercolor artwork by Emily Lex. I’ve loved her work for so long and these Truth For Today Cards are a great way to bring the scriptures into your home. They’re perfect for everyday reading and memorizing, book marks, gift giving, encouragement for friends or to place around your home. You could even gift one to each family member along with their specific gift.
Tea Kettle: We all know how much I love a good cup of hot tea. I even shared how I organize my tea collection. This tea kettle is beautiful and would be a lovely addition to any kitchen. Plus, I love it when the kettle whistles.
USA State Flowers Puzzle Map: Calling all puzzle lovers! This is a beautiful and fun activity the whole family can enjoy… I know my family sure does. We pull out a new puzzle often and enjoy working on it together. Seeing each state flower is a fun touch!
Marble Tray: What a great gift to use as a base for other gifts! Pair it with your favorite hand soap and lotion. Or add it with olive oil decanters for a beautiful collection by the stove. Gift it with jewelry. Deliver cookies on it to your neighbor. No matter what you put with it, this is a wonderful option that will look fabulous.
Frasier Fir Candle: If there was ever a scent I wanted to fill my home with during the holiday season, this is it! Easily one of my favorite candles, the fresh, clean pine scent will have your family and guests asking you where they can get their own candle! A perfect gift for the home nester during the holidays!
Bread Lame: Have a special bread baker in your life? This bread lame will allow them to truly leave their mark! Let their creativity go wild and see their artistic side come to life, making their baked bread even more beautiful! I’m excited to try this one myself!
Honey Pot with Dipper: Love honey? Me too! Drizzle some in your hot tea, over your bread or in your oatmeal. This beautiful honey pot will look fabulous on the counter! Extra points if you pair this one with the bread lame! Warm bread with fresh honey… mmm!
Glass Shadow Box: This idea gets me really excited! It’s a great gift to build on, and it can be the perfect personal item you can really get creative with. Display a collection of items from a favorite trip, your favorite jewelry items you wear on the daily, a collection of cherished family trinkets, a place to store family photo’s. Really, the options are endless and I love how meaningful this gift can be!
Love Story Journal: At this point, I probably sound like a broken record, but I love these journals. So many of us have wonderful, powerful, and truly great love stories. Why not write those down? This journal allows you to do that… and add to it as your relationship grows. I’ll admit it, I’m sappy, and I look forward to our children and grand children having the ability to read about Todd and I. Family is everything.
Linen Kitchen Towels: These are the perfect treat for your kitchen or bathroom! They’re not something you’d always buy for yourself, but they make the perfect gift. Plus, they’d pair really well with other kitchen items, or with the marble tray and your favorite bathroom hand soaps!
Kitchen Herb Garden: Oh how I love my herb garden. This set is beautiful and would look great sitting out on the kitchen counter. Bonus points if you actually gift it with live plants, but packets of each seeds work too!
Brass Locket: Know a new momma? This brass locket is the perfect gift for her! Fill it with a picture of her sweet baby, her love or even other cherished family members. It’s a classic piece that won’t ever go out of style and it will always look good paired with other necklaces, or as a stand alone piece.
