Monogrammed Holiday Decor Gifts
Monogrammed holiday decor gifts let you decorate in a personal way. Line the fireplace mantel or a ledge with monogrammed stockings. This way Santa will know whose stocking it is when he leaves treats in each of them. He’ll appreciate the cookies and milk left on the hearth too. The stockings come in three colors and are sewn with 100 percent hand-felted wool so they will last through many holiday seasons. To top it off, the stockings are Fair Trade Certified, which really pleases St. Nick and your eco-conscious friends and family.
Hang the stockings with weighted hangers that don’t require nails. We have some elegant selections of stocking hangers at west elm, including gold gilded antlers, billowy silver snowflakes and brass trees.
While decorating for the holiday season, be sure to have a tree skirt to put at the base of your Christmas tree. Tree skirts add to the decor, protect the floor from fallen needles and organize the spot for presents. Felt metallic skirts are 100 percent wool. They are stunning in design and come in blush or gray subtle tones. A cheerful red skirt with pom poms along the edge is a bright skirt to use.
Add a few new ornaments to your tree. These extraordinary ornaments also make super gifts wrapped up and tied with a bow. Use them for package decorations, or hang them on a wine bottle as a host or hostess gift. A teardrop glass ornament with a gun metal finish shimmers in the light, so you might want several of these to accent a tree. A chalkboard heart can be written on with chalk, which makes it a fabulous gift tag that can be reused as an ornament on the tree. Tin snowflakes dangle from branches while a pink cockatoo overlooks from a perch higher in the tree. Iridescent snowflakes made of acrylic form a prism when the lights are on.
Lighting is so festive during the holidays. String crackle ball, glitter geometric shapes or fiber optic bursts of tassels around the tree, along stairwells and across the fireplace mantel. They cheer up a kitchen window, brighten a doorway and illuminate entryways. Enjoy experimenting with where these lights can go while decking those halls in merriment.
A wreath hung on the front and back doors is welcoming to guests. And you can also hang wreaths in the house to brighten up walls. Silver glitter stars or gold leaves are subtle wreaths that can last long after the holidays are over. Freeze-dried boxwood wreaths are battery-powered to light up. Or go for a naturally beautiful magnolia wreath with wheat sprigs, pine cones and fragrant eucalyptus.
