Christmas Gift Ideas at Trees n Trends

No matter how carefully we make our list and check it twice, even the best Santas among us miss a person here or there. Whether it's your child's teacher, a Bible study leader, or a hostess who invited you to a last minute get-together, we all need unique (and easy!) gift ideas during the holiday season. 

Luckily, your local Trees n Trends is gift-giving central with tons of unique gift ideas for everyone on your list! Here are just a couple of ideas to keep the gift-giving easy but impressive.

Monogrammed ceramic mug filled with soup mixes Pick up one of our monogrammed ceramic mugs and fill it with the individual soup mixes from Wind & Willow. Everyone loves a cup of warm soup on a cold winter's night and the monogrammed mug adds that extra touch of personalization.

Bracelet stack in glittered jewelry box Stacks are all the rage in jewelry these days whether it be rings or bracelets. We have pre-designed stacks you can purchase for great prices but we love the idea of adding a sparkly bobble bracelet as well and putting the treasures in one of our glittered jewelry boxes.

Critter Hats This winter is cold and getting colder so why not give one of our whimsical critter hats to the next person on your list? Not only do these adorable hats keep you warm but they bring a smile to everyone you pass on the street!

How to make an arch for your Christmas Nativity

Today we're here to show you how to use wrapped wires to create a rustic yet elegant arch for your Christmas Nativity Scene. A beautiful backdrop for your Nativity is the perfect visual anchor to give such a special piece the attention it deserves.

Items Needed:
2 stems from the Fantasy Flower line
Foam block the size of your container
Container of your choice

  1. Decide on the width of the piece you'd like. 
  2. Insert into either end of the foam block.
  3. Begin with the two tallest pieces and fold together. 
  4. Then take your next piece over and under the two connected pieces. Fold and wrap.
  5. Continue until you've used all your stems. 
  6. Feel free to fold the arch forward to add more drama.
If you don't have something that looks exactly like our Fantasy Flower stems, don't worry. Think out of the box - any wrapped wire could work! If you'd like to increase the size of your piece, simply use more stems.
