Five Home Decor Gift Ideas
Christmas Gift Ideas That Last as Home Décor
It's the jolly season upon us and with all traditions and celebrations, there's
also somewhat frustrating part of looking for Christmas gifts. If
you're on the lookout for Christmas gifts that last, there's no better choice than home decor gifts.
Choosing a gift for someone to
display in their home can be even more frustrating than finding the usual expendable Christmas
gifts. On the other hand, if you're shopping for a friend or family
member, you can give a home decor gift that will be appreciated.

When to Not Give Home Décor Gifts
Small figurines make for an ideal home decor gift, as long as your host likes
If you've never been to your friend's home, I would definitely not give a
household item unless it's for a recent bride with a gift registry.
Even if you're gift shopping with your
friend and she points out a darling framed picture or frilly pillow, that doesn't mean the item will fit in her
personal interior décor. Get to know your friend's home and tastes first, before you choose a home decor
Instead, take a different approach. Perhaps you know your friend collects
figurines like I do. I started collecting fish figurines years ago.
However, I collect tiny glass antique fish, about one inch tall. The large wooden
fish my mother gave me just doesn't fit my home décor.

accessories make a home feel cluttered. Choose something different, yet complimentary.

3. Make a gift of your own
Make something yourself that has meaning to you both. For instance, make a stained
glass icon to reflect light in her bathroom window. That adds a nice personal touch, too.

professionally and frame it in a frame that blends in with her home

5. Give a huge candle
Give your friend a huge candle dressed up with pearls, sequins, or seashells with
a base that matches her style. For instance, if she loves silver, crystal, ceramics, or brass, choose that
