Christmas Is Coming – Get All Your Festive Goodies Now!

Lous Designs Christmas Round Up PostWell it’s nearly December which means the holiday season is well on it’s way to us, so do you have all of your Christmas cards, decorations, gift wrap, fashion and (mustn’t forget) gifts all organized yet?

I thought I’d wrap up a few ideas for you to help with your Christmas list this year.   First up both Redbubble and Zazzle are great places to look for unique gift ideas and Zazzle in particular has lots of items that can easily be personalized.

Let’s look at Christmas cards first, I know that over the last couple of years I’ve received more e-cards or just messages on social media, but there’s something special about sending and receiving actual Christmas cards that’s very special.

Great Christmas Card Ideas

People first started sending Christmas cards in the Victorian times which means that we’re now in the third millennium that have used Christmas cards – the 1800s, the 1900s and the 2000s – that’s some pretty cool history right there!

There has never been more selection for Christmas cards than now so here’s a few ideas for you –

Christmas Ornaments

There are so many different Christmas ornaments to choose from that it’s hard to know what theme you want to use to decorate your tree or if, in fact you’d prefer a mishmash of themes.

Let’s have a look at a few ideas……

There are lots more themed ornaments for you to choose from including some owl ones I featured on a previous post about Owl Christmas Goodies!

Personally I think the  Christmas Tree Ideas website has the best selection of themed Christmas ornaments and for other Christmas tree ideas you could check out their facebook page.

While we’re talking about Christmas decor there’s always soft furnishings to make your home festive –

Christmas Gift Wrap

There are lots of ideas for Christmas gift wrap from the traditional wrapping paper to a myriad of different wrapping ideas for the holidays.   I’ve come across a really good Pinterest board that has ideas for Christmas Gift Wrapping –

You can also get some great personalized festive wrapping paper from Zazzle which looks awesome.  Of course we’ve also had a post on Dog Christmas Gift Wrap and in case you can’t tell I do have a soft spot for dogs!

Christmas Gift Ideas

As I said before Zazzle and Redbubble are great places to look for gift ideas and another place for a unique gift idea is Etsy, although I do have to warn you Etsy makes time disappear!

If you’re really stuck on ideas then I do have a couple of cool links for you to check out – great gift ideas for women & great gift ideas for men – you can thank me later for those!

Christmas Fashion

If you want to really get in the mood for Christmas then a Christmas outfit is a great idea.   Now not everyone should dress up as Santa or an Elf, but there’s no reason why you can’t wear a Christmas T-Shirt or Hoodie.

  1. I absolutely love Zazzle and Etsy! There are so many great designs and designers on both sites that it is often hard to choose. Your designs are beautiful Lou! The children building a snowman sure brings back a lot of great memories.

    1. I do miss having Christmas in winter wondering whether or not the snow will come in time, that’s probably why I have so many designs based around snowmen! I’m not sure I’d handle the cold very well after living in Australia for all these years now though!
