Custom Christmas Gifts from Zazzle

A Very Custom Christmas with Zazzle

I love gifting — it’s really my favorite part of the Holiday season. Finding the perfect gifts, wrapping them with all the cuteness… bring it on! Customized gifts are the best gifts ever because they have that personalized touch. They are fun to create, and nothing beats the reaction of someone who has just been given a gift made especially for them. The thoughtfulness of a customized gift is always appreciated!

This, my friends, is why I love Zazzle so much.

So I’ve picked out a few of my favorites this year to share with you, in hopes that you can find some inspiration for your holiday gift-giving.

I love the stamped jewelry trend, and Zazzle makes it so easy to order. This gorgeous circle pendant I had made for my sister — the initials c & t are for Casey and Trevor, her two kids.

And my goodness, can you say packaging love?! I’m a sucker for natural wrappings. Custom Christmas Gifts from ZazzleYou can find this necklace available to be customized here.

Another favorite of mine are prints on wood. These are soooo cool.Β Custom Christmas Gifts from Zazzle They come in various sizes, and come with a cool little stand so you can put in on a shelf instead of hanging it. Custom Christmas Gifts from Zazzle

I chose a picture of my boys walking down the sidewalk and added a lovely brother quote. Custom Christmas Gifts from Zazzle

These look great in color, sepia tone or black and white. Such a fun and unique gift! You can create your own wood print here.

I wanted to find a good family gift — or a gift for the kids — and I found one that suits both with this custom puzzle! My boys both love doing puzzles and we do them together ALL THE TIME. Custom Christmas Gifts from Zazzle

I decided to use a brother picture from this year’s school pictures so that it would be fun for the boys to work on it together. Custom Christmas Gifts from ZazzleHere is Logan trying to figure it out! You can create your own puzzle here.

Last, but certainly not least, a gift for the fur-baby or your favorite fur-lover. Custom Christmas Gifts with Zazzle

Christmas in February?

Don’t put away those Christmas decorations just yet….

I wasn’t going to share my Valentine’s Day mantle this year, because honestly it hasn’t changed much from last year. I’ve been pretty busy… and lazy at the same time (it’s totally possible), so it hasn’t been a priority.

HOWEVER – I had what I thought was a brilliant idea and I decided to play around and give it a try.

The other day I started thinking about the decorations I use throughout the year and how I often re-purpose the generic things if they are the right color. Take red, for example – red is a primary color for several holidays, so it helps to have some red staples, like vases, dishes, frames, etc., that you can use throughout the year in your holiday decor.mantle_main

 

Some things that you might think are specific to just one holiday might be used for other holidays as well if you get creative about it.Β  I wanted to pull out the red tinsel and my red Christmas ball ornaments from my storage bins in the garage, but they were too high up and Hubbo was out of town. Bummer!

But then I noticed my giant yard candy canes hanging in the garage right in front of me, and at arms reach, too. Hmmmmm… I thought it might be a bit of a stretch, but then I realized that candy canes are PERFECT for Valentine’s Day, too! Yes! Seriously! Because, did you know, if you face two of them together, they make, like, the perfect HEART!?!? mantle_side

Yeah, they totally do. Aren’t I a genius?

No, I’m not, I totally stole the idea from my neighbor who did this on her lawn at Christmas time… but she doesn’t have them up now!Β  πŸ™‚

You would be surprised at how many things can be used to decorate throughout the year, even if they seem like they are specific to one holiday. Patience Brewster makes the most adorable and unique ornaments and decorations that are great for Christmas, but they are just so dang cute, you could use them year round. In fact I wish I had these little guys right here for my Valentine’s Day mantle – they are perfect!

So don’t be afraid to think outside of your holiday box or plastic storage bin – start mixing it up!

In the meantime, I’m going to save my pennies for this guy for St. Pattie’s Day!
