Moms are the best! They have boundless amounts of energy to work all day and still prepare dinner and kiss the kids good night. This Christmas, show them you appreciate everything they do for you. Here are some holiday gift ideas that will be appreciated by moms in every stage of motherhood:
One way to make sure that your gift will be fully appreciated is to find out what mom needs around the house, whether it’s an actual household item or a task that needs doing: a new non-stick pan, a set of bed covers, a nice painting to fill the bare wall, a new pair of shoes for walking in the park—or even repairs around the house. Just make sure that you call in the experts for repairs if you’re not one. Do what you can to make her life easier for the rest of the year.
Christmas is just around the corner, so the chance of coming across a home that isn’t decorated is slim. While some homes display classic and elegant décor, there are some people who would prefer to personalize their décor by displaying weird Christmas decorations. If you’re looking for ways to embrace some weird and wonderful ideas for your home this Christmas, Treetopia has some ideas for you.
Go with decorations inspired by cartoon characters in Christmas gear to fill your home with lighthearted fun. It would certainly be a weird but wonderful sight for an adult’s home to be filled with youthful amusement.
Over the past few years, books have made a comeback as a result of popular and compelling film and television adaptations. While there have been many fans of such cinematic adaptations, many people choose to either preempt or follow up literary films with original texts, and there are purists who strictly prefer the written form. If you’re wondering what to give bookworms this season, Treetopia has several delightful and useful gift ideas.
Waterproof Book Covers
Any book lover would agree that it’s not fun to read damaged books, especially books with pages stuck together from being a casualty of water. Gift any book lover with a waterproof book cover (or a set of them), and they will surely cherish the extra protection it gives their beloved books—and cherish you for your savvy and thoughtful idea.
The 2012 Treetopia Favorite Tree Sweepstakes, launched in conjunction with Design Milk, gives you the chance to win your favorite Treetopia tree until December 20, 2012! But wait… there’s more! Wonderful prizes are in store for the lucky fans of our amazing trees: the first prize winner takes home his or her favorite Treetopia tree and the second prize winner will receive his or her favorite Treetopia wreath. The third prize winner gets what some may consider to be the best prize of all: a strand of Happy Fun Ball Lights!
Christmas has long since moved away from the red and green color combination that used to adorn our homes. While some people choose to inject their personality into their holiday decorations, there are many who enjoy following holiday decorating trends. If you’re looking for tips and ideas about what is hot this season, keep reading and Treetopia will show you the way.
Metallic and Pink Christmas Trees
When space around your home is scarce but you want to keep the spirit of Christmas alive, set up a space-saving pencil Christmas tree instead of a fuller, traditional one. For first time owners of pencil trees or those who have tried but were unsuccessful in their attempts to make it look as fabulous as they imagined, Treetopia has gathered some one-of-a-kind tips and tricks to help you make your tree look more amazing.
Having over the top, flashy ornaments hanging on your Christmas tree is not always the best option. Sometimes, you have to take the simple route when decorating, especially since conventional decorations associated with traditional Christmas trees do not always look good on pencil trees. You can choose a minimalistic theme in a monochromatic palette and decorate your tree with ornaments of the same color, but in varying degrees of shade, for a polished and modern look.
Christmas is our free ticket to go all out and satisfy our appetites all in one day. It’s also the day when we get together with our dearest of family and friends. While everyone appreciates receiving gifts, giving that fruitcake a break this Christmas will certainly be a welcome decision. Since Christmas is also all about scrumptious food, here are a few gift ideas you can use for the food lovers on your gift list:
Collection of Herbs
For those who appreciate the huge difference herbs make in any dish, a collection of fresh or dried herbs makes a great gift. If you fancy the dried herbs option, purchase a few bundles of a variety of herbs from your local farmer’s market. Store these in clear, airtight containers, and label them accordingly. Food lovers with green thumbs will appreciate receiving a small potted herb garden that will make a great herb starter kit.
Teachers are everywhere and it’s no secret that being a teacher is a difficult job. There are some who end up as your intellectual guides or concerned friends when school is over. Whether the teacher is a friend or someone who has made an impact at some point in your life, here are a few fabulous gift ideas for the people working in the profession that teaches all other professions:
A Box of Scrumptious Pastries
Teachers are busy. They spend most of the day in the classroom and spend the rest of the day grading their students’ papers. Since cookies and pastries make for great pick-me-ups, give the teachers a reprieve by gifting them a box of scrumptious pastries that will melt the stress away with every bite.
