nightmare-before-christmas-cuckoo-clock-3

 

Hammacher Schlemmer always has tons of cool gift for the hard to buy for.  I love this Nightmare Before Christmas cuckoo clock for the holidays or for the serious Tim Burton fan (which my family just happens to be also).  So much detail is found in this clock.  Many favorite characters are found all around and Zero even comes out of the window shutters at the top at the top of every hour. My favorite is that when Zero comes out, This is Halloween also starts to play. You can leave it on a setting that lights up, too, which just adds to the ambiance. Very high quality clock that will make a great gift.

 

 

 

 

 

This year, I was able to try out the new Sirena vacuum.  I love it!  That is a great gift to give, too, but now I get to tell you about the Sirena Twister. Much like the vacuum, it is water based and has a purifier within.  This is so much nicer than a regular air purifier, though.  It freshens the air with the scented oils available.  Right now, I am enjoying the fresh pine scent as it runs in my house, adding to the atmosphere during the holiday season.  It’s really cool, as well, that it lights up.  If the room is dark, you will notice that the colors change and it looks quite festive.  This is an amazing system that does an incredible job.  Definitely a product I would like to have a few of for different parts of the house.

I love art for the home and when you get the opportunity to personalize it, it’s even better.  I love Fracture Me for that reason.  You can create one of a kind art using your own photographs and turning it into a beautiful centerpiece or accent in your home.  There are lots of companies that can do that, also, but put your photographs on canvas.  However, Fracture Me is able to print your photo directly on glass.  That leaves you with a sophisticated and modern piece of art, with low profiles, ready to hang without needing a frame.  In addition to your own photographs, you can also create art work using beautiful artist’s talented photographs already on the site in the art store.  You will love the finished product that arrives quickly and safely packaged.  It is gorgeous!

lettersA cool personalized gift is to give handcrafted letters for home decor.  Check out Etsy shop, HouseofCrazi.  The owner creates unique initials to compliment any decor. These faux metallic letters are really cool and surprisingly lightweight.  Spell out a name for a bedroom or add to any tablescape for a one-of-a kind look. Spell out “Noel” or “Joy” for holiday decorations or create a collage or saying on your wall.  The sky is the limit, and the shop has so many different types of letters to choose from.  Definitely a great gift idea this holiday season!

They are easy to set up or put away when not needed.  A great gift idea!
