Hello! Our crafting adventure for December was a little different than previous months since we focused on GIVING. It gives us such happiness to create joy for others during the holiday season. We love creating gift toppers almost as much as we enjoy finding the gifts! We are excited to share how we personalized our gifts.
For a baby’s first Christmas: Is there anything cuter or more fun than seeing a little one dressed in Christmas pj’s?! This gift was also paired with some fun Christmas books and a baby’s first Christmas ornament.
For the cat lover: A ‘Meowy Christmas’ tea towel and some cat-themed cookie cutters is a sweet way to show some festive love to the cat lovers in your life!
For the Trekkie: Yes, a bit specific but they’re definitely out there and I happen to have a few in my family! Etsy can be your friend when trying to find something unique as seen here with the “Trek the Halls” ornament! Combine it with a Spock mug, Starbucks coffee and a gift card for a fun gift. This can be translated into any unique gift idea!
For the teacher: Instead of wrapping awkward shaped chocolates, use a pretty tin that can be used as storage once the yummy treats have disappeared. Add a gift card inside the card, a mini ornament and voila, you’re all set for the kiddos to hand out their gifts!
For the bus driver: Similar to a teacher gift, by choosing a festive package it acts as a wrapped gift. Adding a gift card inside the card completes the present. Simple, but still cute!
For the classmates: Knowing fidgets are very popular among kids right now made assembling little goodie bags really easy! Finding zipper bracelet fidgets seemed fun for kids, but also a helpful motor skill for little hands.
For the book lover: Can’t think of anything too much more relaxing than lighting a candle and snuggling under a cozy blanket with a good book. So why not gift those items in a bundle to your loved ones. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!
For the Girl Scouts: A Pop It fidget, Cats vs. Pickles toy and a mini box of Junior Mints for the Junior Girl Scouts for the win!
For the Super Mario and LEGO lover: Everyone is probably aware of these fun sets by now and with so many kits and accessories, it’s the perfect gift for kids (and even grown-ups!). This was paired with the Super Star plush toy for a boy who loves yellow.
For the holiday birthdays: Sometimes it can be difficult shopping for your loved ones when their birthdays fall within the holiday season. A festive monogrammed ornament along with a beautiful picture frame is a great way to combine the two!
For any gift: Adding a card and gift topper makes basic wrapped presents feel extra special and festive instantly!
Happy (gift) Giving, friends!
