'H' for Holidays

A Quick Look at This Year’s Holiday Gifts and Wrapping

Thank you Pier 1 for sponsoring this post.

I theme my wrapping paper every year. Is that weird? (I don’t think so, because I know a lot of other people do, too!) This year, it’s plaid, natural elements, red, and gold.

Christmas Gifts, Pier 1 Wrapping Paper

I’ve been wrapping presents in their birch embossed gift wrap, plaid embossed gift wrap, and chalk and plaid mini gift bag sets. I added the Santa book boxes to the mix too, though I could see those being the gift, not just the presentation.

Here are a few of my favorite finds for gift-giving from Pier 1 right now. Soft faux-fur pillows (with pom poms!), and the cutest, softest stuffed animals.

There were plenty of hostess gifts I would love to keep for myself. That’s always the mark of a good gift, I think — something you love so much you wish it was for you. The faux-birch salt and pepper shakers are really well done, and I know I’d be happy with a new cheese board (and some cheese to go with it, please). And then that two-tiered serving platter is so cute with gold polka dots.

(Actually, there are a few things above that I did get for myself. Some faux pine garland for the fireplace and to mix with our stair garland, along with a few faux juniper and pinecone bundles.)

And here’s my take on a gift basket!

DIY Pier 1 Holiday Gift Basket

Pier 1 has plenty of baskets of course, but I was drawn to their faux birch serving bowl. Fill it with cookies or other treats, then make it pretty with the following supplies.

  1. Metal Cabin Ornament

  2. Grayson Faux Birch Serving Bowl

  3. Natural Striped Glitter Ribbon

  4. Faux Juniper and Pinecone Bundle

  5. Holiday Gold Tissue Paper

I’m still finishing up last minute details with our decorating, but I can’t wait to show you more than the little peeks you got in today’s post!

    My mind is blown by those faux-birch salt and pepper shakers. Wouldn’t be able to tell what they were if I didn’t read the note above it.

    This red wooden commode is breathtaking. Sorry, but I just have to comment on this :)
