Happy Wednesday, everyone! I am back with another Favorite Things post, but this month, I decided to make it Christmas themed. I am sharing my all-time favorite Christmas items including ornaments, candles, and apparel. I hope you enjoy!
Glory Haus Ornaments
I am not a huge fan of breakable ornaments because I have two kids (ages 2 and 6) that like to handle the ornaments on the Christmas tree. I tend to purchase shatterproof ornaments most of the time, but I do have some special breakable ones. And, most of them came from Glory Haus. They make great quality ornaments with a decorative and sturdy hook.
Family Personalized Ornaments
We have made it a tradition to purchase a family ornament every year. We have them from the beginning of our marriage in 2007 up until this year. They came from a variety of companies too. The beginning ones came from Personalization Mall. Last year’s ornament came from Lisa Leonard. I was pretty bummed because I wanted a 2015 Lisa Leonard ornament, but all of our names wouldn’t fit on her ornaments this year. We like to put the names of our pets on our ornaments as well, so when we look back on them, we can see what pets were part of our family that year. I ordered this year’s ornament last week from The Vintage Pearl. Once it comes in, I will definitely share it with you guys.
Barn Owl Primitives Signs
I have several of Kristi’s signs throughout my house. I love her wooden signs. But, I only have one of her Christmas signs and that is the “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” sign. It is sitting in my kitchen display this year. Make sure to check out my 2015 Christmas decorating video because it is featured.
Bath and Body Works Vanilla Snowflake candle
It isn’t a secret that I am a huge fan of Bath and Body Works and their candles. I purchase them year round, but I have one favorite Christmas and winter one. And, that is the vanilla snowflake one. I actually purchased two this year because I wanted to make sure I had one to use throughout the season. I love vanilla fragrances in my home, which is why this is a personal favorite of mine.
Lisa Frost banners
I have been a huge Lisa Frost fan for years after seeing a banner hanging in a specialty store. Over the years, I have created a nice collection of her banners that hang on my front door throughout the year. I have three of her Christmas banners and I love them all. I immediately smile when I look at them because they are bright, colorful, and whimsical.
An Altered Ego Christmas T-Shirt
I have many t-shirts in my closet from An Altered Ego. They have the cutest shirts for any and all occasions. I have one of their Christmas shirts in my wardrobe and it is the one that says, “I just like to smile, smiling is my favorite,” from one of my favorite Christmas movies, Elf. I usually wear this shirt the last day of school before Christmas break.
I would love to hear about some of your favorite Christmas items too. 🙂
