Most of my favorite ornaments are those that have been given to me, rather than those I purchase myself: I love to think of the backstory and the person I received it from as I deck out my tree each year! So, as you make the holiday rounds this year, instead of bringing the host or hostess the obligatory bottle of wine, why not present them with a gorgeous keepsake they’ll cherish for years to come? Here, a few of my faves from Macy’s Holiday Lane.
I may not be the craftiest of people, but I do love handmade trinkets. These adorable ornaments combine my desire to give something homespun, without actually having to do the work myself! Win-Win!
While my holiday decorations are a hodgepodge of the things I’ve collected over the years, many people like to have themes running through their homes. Some like all white designs, while others love to embrace the characters known to the Christmas season. Know your audience and cater to their preference!
For many people, the teams they root for are just as – if not more – important as religion itself! Indulge their inner cheerleader with embellishments that scream “Go Team, Go!”
