I try to come up with different ornament ideas which I then make myself (I’m an artist) I figure that most people have room for an extra ornament, and if they really don’t like it they can stick it in the back, lol. This year I’m making an artwork of my friends service dog for her. I’m making Italian crepe paper flowers for my grandmother. I’m always asked to design and make stuff which I don’t have time for, so I think people appreciate it more when they get a handmade gift from me!

It's a Beautiful World!

These are all great gift ideas! We have noticed that during the holiday season we sell more T-shirts, phone cases, coffee mugs and pouches with our artwork printed on them. We also see a spike in sales of our small unframed art prints which fit into standard picture frames. We suspect all these make unique artistic holiday gifts... Raisa

When I was a child there was a retired gentleman at the church I attended who enjoyed making little boxes out of greeting cards. The lids fit perfectly onto the bottoms made from the bottom of the card. People would collect greeting cards they'd received and he handed out the boxes at nursing homes. You could also give him a special card such as an invitation or announcement and he'd use it to make a box for you.
