Cozy Christmas Home + Gift Ideas
with Better Homes and Gardens
I know, it’s a mouth full. But guys… Better Homes and Gardens is rocking Walmart. It’s Christmas and my house is feeling so cozy, and the gift ideas are flowing. I mean, it is the hap – happiest season of all… Hey, be glad you can’t hear me. This girl can not sing worth a darn. But I did put on some Christmas tunes and play furniture flip.
Today, I’m going to share some Cozy Christmas Home + Gift Ideas with Better Homes and Gardens. I’m going to start with how I’m getting our house ready to be warm & welcoming. My house will probably look like those display homes you see whenever you are moving house. I always like going to websites just to look around and see what’s new with those houses, maybe even get inspired for my decorating, for instance the houses shown on somewhere like jimgarciahomes.com, it will be so cute and amazing that I’ll probably never want to leave.
Welcome to our cozy, holiday family meal space. My entry/dining room!
Hey, it is what it is. And our house has to work for us and that’s all there is to it. From looking at new homes in richmond hill, ga to moving into the house you chose to be home for your family, you’re house has to work for you. With the big holiday approaching, Austin coming home, and my dad visiting for two weeks. We will be eating family meals together. So I “tiny bit” splurged and ordered 4 brand-new, matching chairs! That actually fit side by side, with room to spare. And look pretty great doing it! I’ll tell you more about them later.
Lord help me, but I’ve determined that I can not stand a dining table in my kitchen! I’ve tried. I love the entryway, as an entryway… but until we build a custom table (in our spare time) this works when we actually need to dine. Otherwise there simply is not enough area around the table to be functional in the kitchen, so this is so much better!
And funnily enough, I’ve come to really enjoy decorating the table in this larger space. I fell in a little bit of love with it over Autumn. I find that decorating the smaller furnishings in a room with simple decor, in the same style & color family, helps to tie it all together and tell a cohesive story. Without looking too busy.
I turned up the holiday glow by adding lots of flickering candles.
In addition to the main table, I added some around the perimeter of the room as well!
This pretty holiday set comes with the black base, the frosted, mini wreath & the red glass hurricane. I can see this being a decorating staple for years. It’s classic & timeless. I already have an alternative idea for it!
There are so many beautiful candle options & yummy smelling scents too!
My white metal lanterns are the decor that keeps on giving. I love them no mater the season! With red candles and snow you are ready for Christmas in a snap.
And yes, the frosted wreath on my white wood lantern is exactly the same. What a happy coincidence! The pretty little doe on this decorator candle is so sweet. Here she is up close.
I popped a wee bottle brush tree in one of my vintage Santa mugs, and called this table top, done!
I think the big Santa punch bowl might be needing a haircut?
The holiday throws are extra gorgeous this year, and they make such lovely gifts! This plush sherpa throw has pretty Poinsettias and comes wrapped in a thick white ribbon. Pair it with one of the holiday candles, and add some cookies or candy, and put it in a basket for the perfect gift! It’s thoughtful, pretty and something anyone would love to receive.
The vintage woody candle also happens to have Foxes on it. So it’s extra cute! And you saw the Deer and Christmas Tree candle in the lantern earlier. They also come in a variety of scents in each style. Items like this are great to have on hand for last minute or unexpected gift giving too.
My dad would love a vintage woody! He grew up surfing and has always wanted one. I can’t afford the real thing, but I can afford a candle, so I’m gifting one to him and it’ll be waiting in his room when he comes to stay.
I think the 3-piece set would be beautiful to gift as well, it comes boxed so it would be easy to wrap, and once opened, it’s quickly ready to display and use. I feel like for someone just starting out, it would be a welcome addition to any holiday home.
Thank you so much for joining me today! If you like what I shared today, please make sure you are following me on Facebook. I’ll try to do a Facebook live and share the pretty blanket and candle options up close with you soon!
Wishing you a season full of PEACE & JOY!! xo Shannon
