Thursday Thrifty Throwdown: Who doesn't love holiday-themed gifts?
I'm a sucker for holiday-themed stuff. Ornaments, plates, mechanical reindeer that jive to "La Bamba." Seriously, if it weren't for the cost-and-space double-whammy factor, I'd have a whole holiday dish set just to use for the month of December. I kind of think everyone has a little bit of that in them, which is why I love giving holiday-themed holiday gifts...you know they will be used at least once a year, right?
A pile of dishtowels doesn't sound very fun or festive, but these cute holiday-themed ones are adorable. Gather a bunch from all over - the one above is on Kreativbyerika on Etsy ($7.50) and I saw an adorable 12 Days of Christmas one at Crate and Barrel ($4.95). Add a whisk or a spatula, and you are good to go.
I mean, seriously, check these plates out. The set of four from Barnes and Noble ($24.95) have scenes of the Peanuts gang in all of their Christmas happiness. It's hard to not start to hum "The Skating Song," right?
I'm so digging this throw pillow with a vintage, chic black and white image of Santa and his reindeer in flight. AnnadaisyDesigns offers it (along with some other cool holiday décor) for only $18. I imagine it perched on my guest room bed or in my bay window in the den....if I had a guest room or a den with a bay window, that is.
A buffet table needs many things, one of them is a place for napkins. Folks dribble, spill, and need to dab that festive yummy from their cheeks. Look at this uber-cute snowflake napkin holder from Crate and Barrel ($12.95). Ideal as it goes for any holiday occasion folks celebrate!
