Holiday Gift Guide: Christmas Preparations

Sharing is caring!

Christmas is coming faster than you know it!  Through the month of November, I will be sharing my Holiday Gift Guides.  Today, we have lots of really neat ideas for Christmas Preparations from flowers to cookbooks, there is a little something for everyone!

Holiday Preparations Guide

Thomas Kinkade’s Starry Night by Teleflora

Thomas Kinkade's Starry Night by Teleflora

This exclusive, hand-sculpted and hand-painted Thomas Kinkade chapel glows warmly above rich red roses and fresh, festive greens. It’s a wonderful gift to treasure this holiday and beyond.  Jam-packed full of beautiful red spray roses, noble fir, oregonia, lemon leaf, red berries and glittered pine-cones around the gorgeous Teleflora’s Thomas Kinkade’s Starry Night light-up keepsake – this can be used every year in Holiday decorations long after the flowers fade!

When this arrived at my home, I just smiled and smiled – it has been a week and it still looks good!  The roses are beginning to fade a bit but the greenery is still going strong.  Let me just say, though… you get funny looks when you get Christmas flowers in October HA!

YouCopia BakeStack Organizer

BakeStack Hero

BakeStack™ is the ONLY in-cabinet organizer for baking tools and accessories. Three customizable drawers allow home bakers to save valuable pantry and drawer space by storing sprinkles, icing, candles, cake tips, cookie cutters and more in a standard kitchen cabinet.

Measuring 10.9” deep x 8.1” wide x 8.8” high, the BakeStack includes 18 easy-fit drawer dividers– three vertical, six small horizontal, and three each of medium, large and extra-large horizontal—that provide hundreds of possible drawer configurations. Home bakers can customize the drawers by aligning the dividers into the drawer slots and pushing down.   Drawers pull straight out and lower to resting position at eye-level for easy selection of baking tools and accessories. Included are 18 blank removable stickers for labeling the front of the drawers, leading to even faster location and retrieval of items stored inside.

I LOVE this!  I am always struggling with the best way to corral all my baking goodies and still be able to find them.  The Bake Stack solves my problems and I can change it as much as I want.  Know someone who loves to bake?  This is a PERFECT addition to their Christmas gifts this year!

Treeform Tabletop Gold Metallic Tree


Treeform Tabletop’s rich, new sparkling metallic brings a simplicity and sophistication to the holidays. Produced from recycled cardboard, this Treeform is scaled to be a center piece for any home.  Oh my!  I received the silver one to coordinate with my Blue & Silver Christmas and I must say this thing is GORGEOUS!  Also, it is the perfect gift for pretty much anyone – like, my Grandmother!  She doesn’t put a tree up anymore since my Grandpaw died – she says it is just too much work.  This is beautiful and not “too much work”!

If I were to win this giveaway, I'd prefer to have the organizer. I say this because it's small enough to place on a desktop or table, so I can have easy access to important things I need during the course of the day. For example, when I need to write down a quick message I won't have to run around the house looking for a pen. There are smaller things that we need in everyday life that will fit neatly inside this organizer. Thanks for giving me this chance! : )

A little tree collection... that is super cool! I have the Village stuff, but we have trees in pretty much every room. I don't have one for my office but it is on my plan for this year to get one that coordinates - I want it to be behind me in my videos. :-)
