How to Make the Holidays Extra Special

We pulled together some ideas for details that will turn your holiday gatherings into so much more. You don’t have to be a DIY expert or an accomplished crafter to add these unique touches to your holiday celebrations. These tips and tricks are easy to pull together in no time—no hot glue, glitter or stress required!


Festive Seat Finder

When setting the table, instead of the usual place cards, use annual ornaments to mark each guest’s spot. Simply add a tag with their name on it to the ornament’s ribbon. It also functions as a gift for your guests to take with them. Every time they hang it on their tree, they’ll remember the celebration that year!


The More The Merrier

Did someone RSVP at the last minute? Here’s a gift you can easily put together on short notice. Make a hot cocoa kit in a holiday mug for a simple and thoughtful gift. Just place hot cocoa mix, marshmallows and a peppermint stick in a little bag inside the mug. Tie it with a pretty ribbon and you have a sweet and useful gift.


Boughs Of Holly

Thread a ribbon through a charm or small Christmas ornament to use as a napkin ring. This is an easy way to bring a little extra holiday cheer to the table! You can also use this same concept and tie an ornament with a ribbon onto a gift to make it extra special.


A Christmas Classic

The last thing you want to worry about while socializing is where you put your glass down or whose red is whose. Use our mini twelve days of Christmas ornaments or any of our other ornament sets as wine charms to help your guests keep track of their glass as they mix and mingle throughout the evening.       


Tidings Of Joy

Maybe you aren’t hosting this year, but you're attending holiday parties. You can still prepare a special touch for the festivities! Bring cookies and treats on a wintry platter. Leave behind a recipe card with the platter as a way to thank your host for having everyone over! Extra tip: Pick up a platter you can personalize to make it an even better surprise.
