The holidays are coming up quick! Do you have some hard-to-buy for people on your list this year? Here at Tiny Keepsakes we wanted to pass along some non-traditional gift ideas to help get you started on your Christmas list.
Middle School Girls:
Middle school can be a tough time and middle school girls can be hard to please! One thing for sure is that they like to be noticed and want everything decorated. We think a cute name clipboard with sassy sunglasses would do just the trick. They are great for crafts, writing notes or dear diary entries. Beware – clipboards might also be enlisted as a check-list to boss younger siblings around!
Neighbors and Teachers
If you are lucky enough to be friends with your neighbors figuring out a holiday gift other than food can be tricky sometimes. How about a Christmas ornament with their last name? These do not just have to go on the Christmas tree, we like them hung by the door as well. Same can said for your child’s beloved teacher, a personalized ornament can act as a name plaque for their classroom. Just add the teachers name with iconic decorative apple and done!
College Age Girl
Do you have a senior in high school or a freshman in college this year? For those in transitional stages we like the idea of giving gals something to decorate their dorm rooms with and help them remember home. A personalized cross is a great way to achieve both. Keep it classy and age appropriate by just using their initials or monogram.
What grandparent doesn’t adore showing off their grandkids? A customized photo frame with their “grandparent name” – Nanny, Gram, Pops, Grandpappy – whatever it may be, will sure to please. Adding picture of your child and them together will certainly bring smiles on Christmas morning.
For your friend who is always “The hostess with the mostest” a holiday plate is perfect. Holiday plates are not just for leaving out cookies for Santa, but can help anyone keep the holiday spirit alive. Just remember no complaining when your pants are a little tight from all the extra goodies she cooks!
