It’s the final countdown to Christmas and I couldn’t be more excited! The past 5 years I’ve celebrated Christmas down south with my family, but this year we’re staying home! With this being our first Christmas in our new home, I couldn’t bring myself to celebrate anywhere else (especially since November was such a hectic month with travel!). Since I’ve barely been home though I left almost all my holiday shopping to the last minute. Oops! Thank goodness I was able to swing by my local Christmas Tree Shops in Danbury, CT and find fun presents for everyone on my list!
Where to begin…? Christmas Tree Shops has great gifts for friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, dog walkers, the list goes on! And everything is super affordable, which is an added bonus!! On top of grabbing all my gifts at Christmas Tree Shops, I was also able to stock up on wrapping paper, bows, tags, bags, etc. How convenient?!
Don’t stress! Click HERE to find a Christmas Tree Shops near you for all your last-minute holiday gift needs AND to get $10 off your purchase of $50 or more!
As you can see, I grabbed a variety of funny, light-hearted presents along with some more meaningful ones. I prefer to buy my family some of each to make things more entertaining on Christmas morning! And of course I couldn’t pass up these genius stocking stuffers: the mini computer vacuum, the anti-identity theft stamp, and reusable hand warmers were no-brainers!
If you’re looking for a few more personalized gifts ideas from Christmas Tree Shops, I’ve got you covered! Consider buying holiday-themed platters/plates and fill them with your favorite cookie recipe. Or buy a few mugs and wrap them up with your secret hot coco recipe, OR buy a few tins/decorative boxes and fill them with a holiday-themed kettle corn. Those are just a few that come to mind. If you need more ideas, just send me a DM on Instagram or an email. I’m here to help!
All of these gifts you see here were under $15, most under $5!! And my wrapping paper was approx. $1.99 per roll! There were SO many different wrapping paper options in fun patterns and colors. Honestly, it was difficult to decide on just a few rolls to bring home. I personally love coordinating my wrapping papers so that there is a cohesive theme under the tree. This year I went with two bold patterned papers, both with light blue/teal accent colors to tie them together! What do you think??
P.S. My tree “skirt” is actually 2 knit blankets from Christmas Tree Shops and if you look close enough at these photos you’ll see that I actually decorated my Christmas Tree with some disco balls that I also bought at Christmas Tree Shops. I LOVE how it looks and how it’s an unexpected twist on ornaments! Do you think I’m on to the next trend?
