Holiday Shopping #Gift Ideas

There are only 78 days until Christmas! It's time to start thinking about gift ideas.

How about something personal? There's nothing like a unique gift to prove you put forth the extra effort in the gift exchange. Here's just a few ideas. All of these are things I have purchased in the last few months- I do love unique things!

While on vacation, I bought a bracelet off of Liz at a craft show. My favorite thing about it is the magnetic clasp. That makes it so easy to wear. I can latch it one-handed. I love that! And to keep it from accidentally catching on something and falling off, it has the security chain .

Remember when Pet Rocks were a thing? Clamco makes them to look like your pet.

I had one painted for my son's graduation present with his dog, Artemis. It's a doggone good likeness!

Or how about a personalized candle? My son got me this one from Yankee Candle.

Here's another favorite personalized gift. A Fire Drawn craft! My son's hedgehog passed away, so I had Carrie Butler make him a commemorative plaque. She can do just about anything. I've ordered wedding plaques for a few weddings that are coming up and having each personalized for the brides and grooms.

The real thing:

Every detail was captured.

Now, off I start shopping for unique, personal gifts to get for loved ones this holiday season.


  1. One of my favorite personalized gift EVER is a blanket my older son and his family gave me one year. It's sooo soft and fuzzy, but best of all, it's covered with pictures of our son, his wife, and their four kids. LOVE it!

    1. That would be special. I saved my kids' baby clothes, I'm think I'll make a quilt one day out of them and it will be my snuggly nursing home quilt (because it will take me that long to finish it!)

  2. I love the things Carrie makes - I like hedgehogs anyway. The bracelet is pretty too, I like the idea of fastening it one handed.

    1. Carrie's work amazes me. I could never have her patience.

      The single-handed clasp is very sweet.

  3. I really like your new decorative designs! it's beautiful so much and good idea on site.


  4. I think this is one of the most significant information for me.
    And i’m glad reading your article.
    But should remark on some general things, the web site style is perfect,
    the articles is really great : D. Good job…

  5. I really like your take on the issue. I now have a clear idea on what this matter is all about.. cool gifts


Thanks for stopping by the House!
