5 Favorite Gifts to Give this Holiday Season

Happy Cyber Monday, Everybody! 
I hope your Thanksgiving weekend with 
family & friends was wonderful! 
Today I’m joining a wonderful group of bloggers 
in bringing my
Favorite Holiday Gifts
to give to family and friends
and you’ll find them all
at the click of your {Christ}mouse!

1. Wedding Cake Serving Sets

A wonderful present for 
the lucky couple 
with a wedding in the coming year 
or here at year’s end!

I gave this gorgeous
Wedding Cake Serving Set 
from David’s Bridal
tmy son and daughter~in~law 
this summer and they loved it!

This serving set must be based off real vintage pieces!
I love the stamped “I Do” and the 
Art~Deco retro styling!
Seriously pretty with its swirls and graceful lines
reminiscent of that lovely era ~
a lovely, thoughtful gift
any bride and groom would surely appreciate.

2.  Warm & Cozy Winter Scarves

I have become a scarf~oholic the past few years.
I have had a few scarves since my early 20’s
but now there are soooo many choices!
I just don’t think anyone can have too many scarves.
I found these at a sweet little shop called
Mia’s Mirror
and this shop was actually inside another store
which is a grocery chain here in Texas.
Some of the scarves were only $5.00.

3.  Christmas Ornaments

Christmas ornaments are the perfect gift to give
your coworkers, bosses, your children’s teachers, 
really anyone!
Every year after Christmas I like to go out and buy up
left over ornaments to stash away
for next year’s quick go~to present.

Ornaments make lovely add~ons to tie into a package.
It is fun to give your children an ornament for their first year of life, 
then a new one every year after to go along with 
whatever they are into right now.
These were also found at H.E.B. in their houseware section.
4.  Meaningful Signs

Sooo many beautiful signs out there with 
wonderful sayings on them!
Some are so elegant with gilded frames 
or the writing is scrawled
across a mirror.
Others are more rustic and have been made with
recycled wooden boards.
Others still are cut out of sheet metal.
There’s a meaningful sign out there for all tastes.
These framed signs I found at
Hobby Lobby
and there were many different ones 
from which to choose!

5. Home Cooked Meal

It’s what most of us dream of having
someone else to cook for us!
{at least I do!}
Why not give your loved ones a little “coupon book” 
homemade by you for homemade meals
that you’ll make for them?
So many restaurants deliver so perhaps a gift certificate
or prepaid card with an amount that would cover
the cost of a nice meal.
Everyone appreciates a good homestyle meal so that
they can take a break from cooking ~
especially with today’s busy lives
after work.

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope your holiday season
is a wonderful one.
I’ll be sharing more holiday decorating 
and gift giving ideas over 
the coming weeks.

Blessings to you,
Barb 🙂
