Today my tip is about gifts for the holiday season. I work very hard every year to come up with new ideas for special gifts. My family is not hard to please but I still want it to be a magical time of the year. My favorite gift to give and get are ornaments. I can not show you what I am getting this year, but I can show you some of my favorites from my past. They do not always have a special meaning, so most of the time they just catch me eye.
My mom started this years ago with my sister and I, and now we have quite a few ornaments of our own. It made it very easy to fill a tree when we no longer lived at home.
I bought this bird for my mom a couple of years ago because she loves birds. I fell inlove with this ornament when I realized it could be clipped onto the tree.
My husband and I were lucky enough to vacation in Italy this year, and with my love of ornaments I purchased these in Sorrentto. It was the cutest little shop full of Christmas items.
These are more gifts to my mom because of her love of birds.
My grandmother, "Grammy" gave these to my mom around 25 years ago. They are a family favorite.
Last year my mom wanted a more rustic tree, so I bought these for her.
More tips to come...see you tomorrow!
