After the adorable, festive videos and photos I posted earlier today, I have bassets on the brain. Although—let’s be honest—when do I not? Of course I adore this sweet Christmas card featuring two basset hounds under the mistletoe. This card does leave me wondering one thing: When doggies meet up under the mistletoe, do they slurp or sniff each other?
Can you believe that the big day is almost here? If you still have a few things to wrap, then these printable gift tags will come in handy. After you complete your purchase, you’ll be able to download the file and print these To/From tags in a flash from the comfort of your own home. They’d look rather professional printed on sticker paper or cardstock, but if you’re in a pinch, regular paper will do just fine.
Raymond and I had such a wonderful time during our trip down to Atlanta, seeing the sights and eating various local treats. This Georgia highway Christmas ornament show that all roads lead to Atlanta! Laser cut from birch plywood, this ornament is delicate and would make a nice gift for the Georgia peach in your life. [Psst… Looking for another state? Maplanta has highway ornaments for all 50 states.]
In this original watercolour painting, the gift giving octopus is definitely feeling the holiday spirit with his Santa hat, Christmas lights, and candy canes! Full of detail and awesome linework, this piece of art would be a perfect present for the cephalophile in your life. Giclée archival prints of this design are also available here.
Who knew sharks could be so adorable!? Handmade with polymer clay, this wee shark charm is sporting a Santa hat and holding a tiny prezzie [presumably a box of chum for one of his mates]. This carnivorous cutie could be clipped to a zipper or bag, and it’s also available as a necklace.
After seeing the gorgeous handmade aprons in this Etsy shop, I want to get them all! The apron shown below is covered with various Christmas objects including holly, birds, ornaments, and gift boxes. The ties and pockets are made using a super fun polka dot fabric that is so colorful, it reminds me of Christmas lights. Another apron that I can’t take my eyes off of is this whimsical Christmas tree one. Whether you’re looking to buy a gift for a newlywed, your best friend, or your mother, any of the aprons in this shop will please the baker in your life.
I love unusual stockings, so when I saw the fun, quirky stockings in this Etsy shop, I knew I had to share one of them. With his hand-stitched horns and toothy underbite, this monster stocking make me smile. This cute critter would be a perfect stocking for a little boy or anyone else who loves whimsical creatures.
When I saw these Christmas glasses, I began reminiscing about years past when I spent many a winter day gazing through the window looking out for cardinals. There is just something so breathtaking about a bright red cardinal in a snow-covered landscape. The little bird on each glass is perched on a snow-dusted branch. This lovely set of glasses is one you’ll want to keep using long after the snow has disappeared.
Turn any outfit fabulously festive with this beautiful red flower. Layered felt petals give the flower dimension, and a sparkly rhinestone makes it fit for a princess! In the image below, the flower is shown on an elastic headband, but you can opt to have it on an alligator clip instead. The headband is available in various sizes, so whether you purchase this flower for a newborn, toddler, teenager, or yourself, you can get the perfect fit for each gal.
After learning about all the fun Raymond had in Guangzhou with our friend Aaron, I was thinking about China while perusing Etsy this afternoon. I adore this Chinese Merry Christmas greeting card with its sweet floral wreath and lovely handlettering. Send one of these cards to a loved one near or far to wish them a 聖誕快樂!
