A few more days to go and it is already Christmas time. To those who still believe in the Spirit of Christmas, we look forward to lavishing the people we care about with gifts which will remind them of us whenever they look at the gift. We are always looking for a unique type of gift such as personalized items or those gifts which we made ourselves. However, because of our busy schedule it is kind of impossible for us to get our hands on personalizing the gift for our love ones. Instead we choose gifts which are not so common and yet will surely leave a great impression to the person or persons who will be receiving the gift.
Garden gifts such as the decorative indoor and outdoor lanterns and terrariums or glass globes, gift certificates of their favorite stores or clubs, or a potpourri our love one’s favorite things will definitely make a great present. For this coming Christmas I am planning to give my mom a decorative lantern. Recently, she has been collecting different types of lanterns to adorn our living room and garden. I am sure that she will be pleased with the decorative lantern especially with the Oxford Garden Lantern, Victorian Table Lantern and the Boston Sconce Candle Holder which I found online. Either of them will make a wonderful and unique gift for her collection. I already asked my cousin who is great with plants to enclose my mom’s favorite ornamental plant. That will please her even more.
We always say that it is the thought that counts every time we give and receive a gift from someone especially from the people we value the most. However, we should not leave it like that. It really matters if the present we are giving or receiving is not just any present which can be bought anywhere. It should be something that will make the giver and the receiver smile every time they see or thought of it.
