A New Bauble Tradition
Gifting a new bauble for Christmas is both a thoughtful gift and a potential new festive tradition that works for friends, family and colleagues. You can be as creative or traditional as you like, adding a playful novelty touch if the mood hits.
If you or those close to you love the eclectic look, this is a great way to build on that and create a sentimental collection of baubles and ornaments that remind you of the people who gifted them, places you have visited, an inside joke or even how much they know you. It’s a heartwarming gift that can be dressed up in a tissue paper filled box with a hand-written note or placed in the hands of someone that has promised to keep their eyes closed.
Host with the most
If it’s your turn to host Christmas dinner this year, why not get personalised baubles and attach a name tag to each decoration to use them as place holders. Your guests get to enjoy a tasty meal and take away a tree trimming to remind them of a lovely evening every year they use it.
And since Christmas can get expensive, especially if you have a lot of people to buy for, so choosing to go with Secret Santa allows you to do a bauble swap surprise that will probably have a longer life-span than a novelty item.
For generations to come
Creating and refining your Christmas style is a great part of the decorating process and allows you to tell your festive story. The great thing is that you don’t have to do it all at once. Take a collage approach and you’ll be able to build on your look for years, possibly even becoming heirlooms. A lovely example of this is when a new baby arrives. It’s always a joy, but amongst the baby grows, teddies and rattles, treating them to a new bauble is a thoughtful keepsake to mark the occasion.
