Christmas shopping for some becomes an inevitable chore. For others, it’s a way to rejoice in a beloved season. Either way, many of us are faced with the same dilemma each year: What to get that one friend who has it all… Or maybe the friend who doesn’t want it all.
The one holiday gift providing a quick fix is a Christmas ornament. But once the season’s done, we put the trinket away, even forgetting about it while another year passes. We want to get our friend something really special: Something they can enjoy every day; something useful.
Luckily, there are a plethora of festive symbols immediately summoning thoughts of yuletide. Wildlife decorwill remain useful — and relevant — all year round. Thankfully, those of us who love the outdoors will find plenty of material in this niche.
Enter the Chris-Moose! Often mistaken for reindeer, the moose provides a handy stand-in for Rudolph. Outdoorsy people know better. After all, there’s a huge difference between a moose and a reindeer. But once Christmas is over, the reindeer’s time has passed and moose becomes king. For Christmas, we won’t sweat the small stuff.
Winter birds are always popular at Christmas. A cardinal and holly stained glass window is the perfect answer to a seasonal gift, and yet remains a vivid addition to year-round decor.
Christmas can speak to the imagination like no other holiday. It filters into our lives, touching all our senses, sometimes permeating our subconscious. It often factors into our dearest memories. That’s why gifts relating to Christmas are among the most cherished of them all.
