Christmas isn’t a season. It’s a feeling.” — Edna Ferber
Yes it is! Dogs driving a decorated truck are the essence of joy a la! They are actually on a gift bag that I found last year. It is so fun to share a treat with friends and family that really exemplifies the sights and sounds of the season. And if you package a treat in wrap that speaks to you, it will most certainly also speak to them.
The practice of giving gifts during Christmastide, according to Christian tradition, is symbolic of the presentation of the gifts of the Three Wise Men to the infant Jesus. Below, we have lots of ideas for making your holiday merry and bright, but we hope you will consider giving to the local Angel Tree or the Marine Corp’s annual Toys for Tots campaign. The original reason for generous gifting is always at the forefront of our minds at The Feltner Group.
Wrap up a theme.
All Peppa, all the time! I love putting together packages for the Feltner grands. This year Peppa is center stage! Not that the gifts are pig related, but I found the stockings at the Dollar Tree and the small carry case at Target. Use your imagination.
Make a practical gift FESTIVE!
I like to give small, practical gifts to neighbors. This year I settled on oven mitts with a pair of candles inside. Both can be used right now. Presentation is everything at this time of the year (and always, really).
Stop the Christmas Day panic!
Stephanie Feltner’s mom always has a creative solution to any holiday situtation. Instead of worrying if a tag is missing or if all gifts are under the tree, she has wrap for each individual person. That way, you know automatically which presents are for you! I borrowed her idea, and the above wrap is what I chose for her gifts this year. Love the pop of orange and the cute dog. PSSST – It’s a surprise so if you see Deborah Carper, please don’t tell her.
