2022 Holiday Gift Guide: All Things Holiday

It’s that most wonderful time of the year! Time to deck the halls and all that great stuff. I’ve always gotten fresh Christmas trees each year, until the prices started going up and availability declined. I never thought I’d be able to get behind an artificial tree, until I discovered King of Christmas trees. These gorgeous trees have made me rethink the whole fresh tree debate. Don’t get me wrong, going to pick your own tree, bring it home, set it up, water it, decorate it and make sure that you continue to water it so you don’t have a major fire hazard on your hands is super fun. It never fails though, at some point the tree stops taking water and it starts to die. Pine needles end up all over the place, branches start to go limp, and you are just barely hanging on until Christmas. Then, when it’s time to take down the decor, you are left with a huge mess and the need to dispose of a tree. If you get an artificial tree, though, you eliminate so much of the hassle. When you are ready to decorate for the holidays, all you have to do is take it out of it’s carrying case. Put a couple of pieces together and plug it in. The lights are already on and ready to go. All you have to do is add your ornaments and ribbons. You don’t have to water it. You don’t deal with fallen needles. You just have a really beautiful tree. When it’s time to take it down, unplug it, take the pieces apart and put it back in the storage case. Even if you want to keep it up longer, it’s ok because it’s not dead and threatening to catch on fire.

There’s so much to be said about that! Go check out King of Christmas and take a look at all their truly beautiful trees. You can pick a variety of sizes to fit your needs. Small, skinny, tall, full, flocked, lit, unlit…..the possibilities are endless. You can even get preassembled sets of prelit wreaths, garland and mini trees like the Queen Flock Collection 4 Piece Set to match your Christmas tree for the ultimate Christmas set up. Or pick up multiple trees for different areas of your home, decorate your bedrooms, and more. You’ll love the products you get at King of Christmas and will love to bring them out each year at this special time of year.

I love to send Christmas cards each year. I always try to have them done by the end of October or beginning of November, but sometimes, life definitely gets in the way. While I have used Mixbook for many personalized photo projects in the past, I’ve never done my Christmas cards through them until this year. It’s always been important to me that the process is easy and after designing my cards this year on Mixbook’s website, I can tell you it was the fastest I’ve been able to design a family Christmas card yet! I was able to take a few moments to create the perfect holiday greeting, customized with family photos and wishes to send out to friends and neighbors. I can create them just as I like, with options for luxe paper, envelope inserts, preprinted envelopes and more. Everything is so easy to create on their website, which is perfect for those who don’t have a lot of time to waste! Once I have decided on what I want my design to be, I proof it and send it off to the printers to be mailed to me as soon as it is done. Once I receive them, I know they look great and I look forward to sending my holiday greetings to everyone. It’s actually a really fun project I look forward to doing each year. I highly recommend Mixbook for your Christmas cards and other specialty photo gifts.

I’ve always loved Mabel’s Labels for Back to School season. They are great to personalize name tags for clothing items and sports equipment. However, did you know that they also offer gift tags and festive return address labels for your Christmas cards and packages? How awesome is that? Simply select a pattern and fill out your information and they will send you perfectly printed tags that will make gift gifting and card writing an absolute breeze this holiday season.

Easily decorate a variety of ornament shapes from the traditional ball and teardrop to ornaments shaped like snowmen.
