Can you believe that Christmas is just 60 days away? Me neither. Yes, its true that I recall seeing Christmas ribbons on display in Michael's back in AUGUST, but now that fall is steadily underway, the leaves are changing colors, and the days are getting shorter and cooler, it does feel like the holidays are coming. But it still surprised me that Christmas is just about two months away.
Even before I was part of a Christmas business, I have always liked to get a head start on my Christmas shopping. All year-round I keep an eye out for cool gifts that would fit in Twelve Days of Christmas Gift Boxes, but come October I really start looking for things that would be a good fit for the people on my list. I find that it really relieves a lot of stress that can build up around Christmas if you have most of your gifts purchased ahead of time.
So, in an effort to make Christmas more enjoyable for everyone, I have put together a list of 60 Gift Ideas to help inspire you in your Christmas shopping. Each week, starting with today, I will be posting a series of seven ideas with different themes - gifts suitable for anyone, for her, for him, for the foodie or cook, for the wine lover/entertainer, for the techie, for the whole family, and a week gifts that will fit in Twelve Days of Christmas Gift Boxes (and also are perfect stocking stuffers). For the four days right before Christmas, I will have a couple last minute DIY-type gifts that you should be able to put together with stuff you might have around the house, or with a quick trip to the grocery store.
Please stay tuned as we count down to Christmas!
Makes a good gift for: Anyone who likes to have warm feet!
I love slippers. I mean, I LOVE them. It has to be a really warm evening for me to not be wearing my slippers or have my slippers next to the couch. Something about getting home, taking my shoes off and putting my slippers on really says, “I am home” to me. To make a pair of slippers a little more fun, you could pair them with some fun nail polish, or even a gift-certificate for a pedicure. Either of these little slipper-add-ons would fit in a Twelve Days of Christmas Gift Box too!
L.L. Bean is a great place to look for slippers for men, women or children.Men's Bean's Wicked Good® Moccasins - $69 Men's Handsewn Slippers, Flannel-Lined - $39.95
