Deck The Trees!

Wow, November is around the corner!Is there anyone that I know, who puts their Christmas tree up in November? I'm just curious! I think I'm going to put mine up early this year! Anybody want to join me?


Gingerbread greetings...I love these gift tags! Trace the outline of a gingerbread man cookie cutter onto brown paper;cut out and dress up the simple silhouette with bits of fabric, ribbon and rickrack for a personalized gift tag!
Seasonal Surprises...These fun and festive totes offer a creative way to put leftover gift-wrapping supplies to good use. Ribbon scraps are ideal accents for the ball ornament appliques, while small lengths of extra tissue paper secured with a colorful pipe cleaner add a merry twist to traditional treat sacks. (I have a friend in Mesa, who keeps small little gifts in gift sacks like these in a large basket by her front door, when guests come to visit through the holidays, she passes them out!)
Traditional tags crafted from colorful card stock give a whimsical touch to holiday gift-giving. Accessorize with buttons, stickers and scrapbook notions for three-dimensional appeal!

Make the presentation attractive. Be creative in packing your cookies by embossing it with ceramic, metal, or plastic stamps or molds or by adding special add-ons to the finished product such as colored sugar, finely chopped nuts, or colorful sprinkles. Make that you decorate the outside your cookie container with distinctive labels, unique cards, and colorful stickers or wrapping paper. Maximize your effort. If you are baking the cookies by yourself, make sure that you prepare to bake a large selection of cookies by freezing several rounds of this dough in advance.

Christmas gift for wife 2009

The year families get into trouble by charging up their credit cards for Christmas gifts. Don't get caught up in commercialism during the holidays. You don't need to spend money foolishly for Christmas presents for your wife. Tell your wife how special she makes you feel by thinking your Christmas gift instead of adding to your bills for next year. Seven Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Wife Make a wooden box. Stain the box to match your home's woodwork or paint it a color used in your bedroom. You can't pick the wrong finish if you match your bedroom décor. Line the box with a pretty silky scarf and present a small gift inside. For the small gift, choose a piece of jewelry, a seashell you gathered together on a cherished vacation, or any symbol of your love. Don't charge expensive jewelry.

You can find antique jewelry for reasonable prices at an antique shop. If you can easily afford it, buy a gold chain with your children’s birthstones set into a pendant. If you have young children, help them make a photo album. Buy a high quality album that matches your home colors (or use fabric spray glue to cover a three-ring binder with fabric.) Take pictures of your children’s normal activities. Use acid-free paper to mount the pictures. Make Christmas dinner yourself. Plan and tell your wife that you will take care of Christmas dinner. Don't leave a messy kitchen for her to clean. Help the children clean up after gift opening. Find a snapshot of you two from an earlier time. Have it enlarged and touched up. Frame the picture in a frame that matches your décor. For instance, if your wife showcases silver, get a silver frame. So many families overspend during the holidays. Your important Christmas gift, love, better than diamonds, doesn't cost money.

Christmas gift idea boyfriend 2009

I'm trying to think of what creative gift ideas for my boyfriend that would apply whether it's his birthday, Christmas day or Valentine's Day. I'm also trying to think of what creative ideas I can give my boyfriend on an, every day basis so I can show him how much I care. I think it would be best to know first what are his likes and dislikes so I would know the best yet creative gift ideas I can give him. Choosing some creative gift ideas for my boyfriend would be tough because I also would want to impress him. However, I need to think creatively and without any boundaries on things that I know would impress him and signify my affection towards him. I think I need to be more closely observant on my boyfriend on thing that he gravitates to. In this way, it would be easier for me to choose the best creative gift ideas for him.

Interests would be a great help in choosing creative gift ideas for my boyfriend as well. I need to know if he likes sports or what hobbies do he really enjoys. Is it okay to get him something that would relate to his hobbies or sports that he likes? If he likes the sports of basketball, I think I should get him some new sports clothing or a new ball. If he is interested in sports cars or airplanes, then I guess I must get him some things related to such. Sensually aside, what if he likes colognes or perfumes? I think I should pay a visit to the malls or department stores so I can check out what are the best recommended colognes or perfumes for men. On the other hand, it's crossing my mind if he likes spicy, woody, citrus scented cologne? I think I should be sure enough on what type of scent he likes and

I will like as well. Well, but I want to give him something more than just a cologne. I believe there are some gift packages for men where several items are bundled in one box such as shower gel, body lotion, after shave creams, and cologne. I think this would best enough as a great gift for my boyfriend. On the contrary, it will benefit me in the long run because I will enjoy as well the scents of the gift I gave him.

Clothing could also be one of those popular creative gift ideas for my boyfriend. However, if I get to choose this kind of gift idea to him, I should make a point that I know the size of jacket, shirt and pants that my boyfriend wears. In this way, it would be easier for me to shop the gifts. Sizes are not the only important I think I should also consider the patterns and colors that he likes. I just can't buy clothing as gift with colors and patterns that he does not like. Styles count as well I believe. I should be keener if my boyfriend wears more corporate, casual and relaxed look of clothing. Well, if everything did not turned well, I guess I'll just give him gift certificates as gift so he can choose on what type, color, style and kind of clothing he wants to get for the occasion.

2009 Baby christmas gift

Do you struggle around Christmas time to decide what gifts to give to your friends, and family but also your neighbors, business clients, and others to whom, you feel obligated to give something? You can stop the struggle and make your Christmas gift giving easier. Here are 7 ways to make Christmas gift giving a breeze. Plan early and well ahead of time. I know it is very easy to say that you will plan and then you fail to do it but the reality is that the very easiest way to make your Christmas gift giving easier is to plan. By planning you will have a larger selection of gifts from which to choose. Furthermore, you will be able to keep your eyes open for any unique gifts, which may be well suited for one or more people on your list.

Network and speak with the people you understand what ideas they have for gift-giving as well as who they know who makes or sells products as a part of their home-based business. Many times these people sell items you can use, as Christmas gifts for either less money than you would spend at a store or at a convenience that can't be beaten. You may even be able to get these gifts customized for your business and delivered for you. Think simple. Many times the people on your Christmas gift- giving list would much rather receive one simple item such as a candle, a calendar or a fruit basket than something complicated. This could also be much easier on you. What about giving candles to all the women and calendars to all the men.

You will be hard pressed to find a woman who does not like candles and men all use and appreciate calendars. This is just an example of how you can make your Christmas gifts much easier. Choose two items and give one to all the women and one to all the men. If you will need to do a large quantity of mailing or delivery, start collecting the addresses you will need in an address book or database well ahead of time. The ideal is to collect the addresses when you meet the person or when you decide this is someone to whom, you will be giving a Christmas gift.
If you come from a large family, consider drawing names or taking turns and giving only one Christmas gift each year. This will allow you to spend more money on one person rather than purchasing many small gifts, which will soon be forgotten. Furthermore, you can concentrate well in advance on finding a gift for this one person. For your neighbors and business clients consider finding one item which most people love such as a kind of bread and jam, a candle or another kind of food item or decoration and purchasing these in bulk.

Basket christmas gift 2009 online

So, how big should you gourmet fruit baskets be? And how can you help decide the very best one for your family and friends? There are two major factors that play into this decision. The first factor that you must consider is the quantity of people to whom, you are giving the fruit basket. This is because you want to be as certain as possible as to how much of the fruit is likely to be eaten. This way you avoid wasting delicious fruits, just because your gourmet fruit baskets are too big. For instance, if giving a basket to a family, you will need to give a larger basket than if giving one to an individual.

Secondly, you will of course, need to do the same for smaller or medium-sized fruit baskets. For example: if your friend or family member, girlfriend or boyfriend, spouse or lover is a picky eater, determine what types of fruit he or she likes best and have the fruit basket custom made if you have to to best suit your needs. And as the other example for smaller gourmet Christmas gift baskets, especially for a small group such as a small office faculty meeting or small party, you will also want to consider about how much of the food in your gourmet fruit baskets or fruit basket will be eaten. Hopefully the fruit in the gourmet fruit baskets you choose will never end in the dumpster! Nevertheless despite how delicious gourmet fruit baskets are, sometimes people just get full, and sometimes they forget that the fruit is there to be eaten.

When you are having trouble trying to decide what kind of gift to get. Gourmet fruit baskets are the best answer. Virtually everyone loves fruit—fruits are just like healthy deserts, therefore the obvious solution is to find gourmet fruit baskets to best suit your friends or family members, spouse or lover, girlfriend or boyfriend or anyone else in your life. Do not waste any more time looking around anywhere else, the gourmet fruit baskets you need can be found easily and quickly online. The main pointed of giving gourmet fruit baskets is that gourmet fruit baskets are the perfect choice, not only for a yet undetermined type of romantic relationship as a way to avoid giving mixed signals, but gourmet fruit baskets are also great for any one whom you may need to purchase a gift.

Of course Christmas is special even without the gifts, but buying the perfect gift for your child makes a wonderful holiday even better. This year, as in past years, there toys that are hot and trendy. And, whether we like it or not, popular toys are popular because most kids have them on their wish lists - and yours might, too The Nintendo Wii is probably near the top of a lot of children's lists this year, and for good reason. Nintendo Wii games are highly interactive and a whole lot of fun to play. Nevertheless it might surprise you to learn that the Wii is also a great family game.

If you buy one for your child, do what we did, and set it up in the living room. You need a lot of room really to get into the game, and having it in the living room encourages all the adults in the house to participate, too. If you do buy the Wii, don't forget to pick up extra Wii remotes and numchuks. On Christmas Day, you'll appreciate having enough remotes for everyone to get in on the action. Don't forget to include a great game, too. And let all the aunts and uncles and grandparents know, so they can pick out a Wii game to add to the collection Hannah Montana items are also hot this year. You might not want to go so far as to shell out mega bucks for concert tickets, but there are a lot of great.

Hannah Montana toys and playsets out there that will thrill the hearts of the true Hannah Montana fan. Older children will appreciate hannah Montana Digital Camera or the Hannah Montana Mix Max Personal Media Player, while younger kids will sing to their heart's content with the Hannah Montana microphone. For the boys, Transformers are definitely hot items this year. A gift of the DVD plus one of the larger-sized Transformers action figures makes a wonderful gift.

2009 Great christmas gift

Can anyone tell me are these big kids or small teenagers If you are in contact with this age group on regular basis, you most likely would agree that it depends on the day and situation. Well, really the hour. So the dilemma for Christmas gift giving becomes finding a Christmas gift for this age range that does not offend their 'grown-upness' but still plays to their childish tendencies. After all, a nine year old is still a kid. To help you sort through some of thinking behind finding the right gift this group, I have put together a few tips for you. Buy Gifts that Give the Kids Permission to Play There are some very fun toys out there that are targeted towards more advanced role playing. Two examples would be A helmet with voice started noises and lights, yes very cool.

Deluxe model transformers: these have additional features that younger kids would not know how to play or would break. Playing swords with a helmet that has lights everywhere would be great fun for all ages. Anything that flies or moves would be great interactive gifts. Creative Gifts So much fun to shop for! You can find just about anything you can dream up for this age group in the creative thought line. Block Building Set There block-building sets with motors so your creations actually move. You can build Lego or other Lego type toys into transforming robots. My nephew loves his 'creature' like this and will tell you about his dad and him building it. K'nex and Magnetix (if you do not have small children or pets in the house) are tons of fun. Science Experiments I found much science type experiments that the kids would have a great time doing. Whether it is stargazing, exploding volcanoes, or watching the larvae to butterfly you can find an activity that is specific to the interest of your child.

Interactive Family Games This age group tends to be very self-critical and desperately needs the reassurance of adults in his/her life. Interactive games are a great ways to strengthen these relationships. Board Games A fun board game I found was Gobblet. Although I have not played this game it looks like a fast moving fun game. I highly suggest at least one gift that is not an electronic enable a different type of family interaction. Game Systems And course there are game systems very targeted at this age group, so depending on the system your child has you may want to consider a new game. My family as a Nintendo wii so I am looking at the Mario driving game.Electronics Each family will have to make their own decision about the age appropriateness for their children. Very popular choices in this age group: cell phones, digital cameras, Nintendo ds and game systems: Sony ps 3 and Nintendo Wii.

Christmas is indeed the perfect time to share your love and your blessings to the people you love. Aside from celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ and spending time with loved ones, Christmas has become one of the most expected times of the year because it is the time when gift-giving is its best. Since men are quite particular to the practicality of their stuff, make sure that you give him items that he can use. Before starting that journey of finding the perfect Christmas present to him, make sure that you consider his personal preferences or inclinations.

A SPECIAL CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR HIM You must know by now men are notoriously hard to buy for because not every gift will work for every man. This means that shopping out for a Christmas gift for him can be a tedious task. Nevertheless, gift hunting for men can be simpler when you consider his activities, hobbies, and interests. If the special man in your life is a Sportsman, sports enthusiast, or outdoorsman, then consider buying sports-related stuff for him. For the sportsman, purchase something that is related to his favorite sport or something he can use while doing it. For the sports enthusiast, items such as jackets, t-shirts, watches, posters, and other memorabilia that are related to his favorite sports team is a surefire hit. For outdoorsmen, consider practical things he can use while outdoors.

Chef or is into culinary art, give him something that he can use while cooking or preparing foods. If he is inclined to the art of cooking, enroll him to cooking class. For men who love to cook, opt for a special array of spices and sauces or a stainless knife set. Gadget geek, consider buying him new techy stuff, accessories, and items. A new unit of a handheld mobile, the latest games and software programs, a MP3 or MP4 player, or a laptop will surely find a way to his heart. Metrosexual, take note of his fetishes. Usually, metrosexual men are very particular about their looks and fitness. A new man’s skincare set and products, a new bottle of his favorite cologne, or a spa gift certificate, should do the trick.

Christmas gift catalog 2009

Ladies, you know the excitement you have when you open that special gift on Christmas morning. You know how appreciative you are for the person who made the effort to give you the gift. Men get that same feeling too. Giving that perfectly chosen gift will certainly make your man happy as well as reap some rewards for you too. Just remember, everyone identifies with that special feeling they get when they open a gift. And frequently, the recipient will want to do something special for you in return. Now, before you rush out and buy your man a seemingly wonderful Christmas tie, take a minute and read the following tips. These are some things the people often overlook when it comes to find the perfect man's gift.

Tip #1: Give a gift that the man will like. DUH!!! Sounds so simple doesn't it. The conclusion is that a lot of people buy gifts because they like it, not necessarily because the recipient will like it. When buying for men, remember first and foremost, THEY ARE MEN and men like different things. Way different things. You have to do a bit of homework, because giving them a gift they don't like is pretty much right up there with not giving them anything at all. Discreetly ask a few questions with the key being to find out as much as you can about their likes, tastes and preferences.

I've said this many times. "There is not much sense in giving them a fruitcake if they don't like cherries, raisins, and whatever those little green things are." Find out if they like sports. Find out what kind of restaurants they like and their favorite foods. Do they like music? Do they have hobbies? There is a myriad of different gift ideas out there, but if you truly want to invoke that special feeling, make sure you are giving them a gift selected especially for them. Tip #2: Personalize it. Call it ego if you want, but men love to see their name on things. Shirts, Golf Bags, Luggage, Key Chains, Stationery, Money Clips, even their towels.

Tip #3: Give them choices. Guys by their pure nature are somewhat tough to buy for. So the easiest way to please them with your gift giving is to give them some choices and the best way to do that is by giving a gift selection catalog. These things are magical. You get to give a cool gift catalog and the man gets to shop and choose his favorite present from the comfort of his own kingdom (not the shopping mall). They come in all price ranges and just about any gift grouping you can think of. These types of catalogs will have anywhere from 20-30 different specifically grouped gift for the man to pick from. Groupings range from tools and electronics to sporting goods and even travel packages. You just choose your price range and the catalog will do the rest.

Christmas craft gift 2009

Creating Christmas gifts by hand is always a winning gift idea for any one you may be close to. These are especially loved by parents and grandparents, because they appreciate and understand the time, attention, and love that went into making the gift. Here are a couple of easy things you can hand make and give to love ones as Christmas gifts this year Your picture. Nevertheless not just any old picture. Find a nice block of wood that's a little larger than the picture you want to use. Sand that piece of wood down smoothly, then coat it with a nice stain color. You can leave the wood natural too if you'd prefer.

Next cover it with a few coats of clear sealant. When the last coat has started to dry, it will become tacky, or sticky, so it will act like glue. Place your picture centered on the wood and press it down firmly. Make sure there are no air pockets underneath. Let this dry completely for several hours, then cover the entire thing - picture and all - with another few coats of clear sealant or finish. You can use a family picture for this project as well, and you can even use a, much larger piece of wood and create a whole collage using multiple pictures. Once the project is fully finished, you can attach a small wire or cord to the back for use in hanging, or you can buy an inexpensive hanging hook from a craft or hardware store.

Ornament pictures. This idea is done almost the exact same way, but the main difference is you'll make Christmas tree ornaments out of your pictures. Just buy some flat, lightweight wood pieces at a craft store, or by some plywood and cut it into the shapes and sizes you want. Then put small wallet sized pictures on them using glue or the finish mentioned above. You might even paint these in different colors first, then apply the pictures over the painted wood. The gives them a "frame" of their own within the shape of the ornament. Drill or punch a small hole in the top of the wood piece, then thread some pretty matching ribbon through for hanging.
