Holiday Gifts to Make Someone Smile
By JoanInColorado on December 08, 2011
I love a gift that brings a grin to my face. Something that's part cute, part sassy, part really good looking. Here's a few I found that I thought were worth sharing!
| Music Smile|
Here's a ceramic pig iPod speaker from West Elm that is seriously too cute.
| Holiday Decoration Smile|
I love non-traditional decorations, and this table centerpiece from Etsy looks a bit like the trees in Who-ville. A perfect complement to your Who-Roast-Beast dinner!
| Teenage Boy Smile|
Even a cranky teenager might smile when he opens this animal face shirt from WowCoolStuff.
| Little Girl Smile|
This is a great print from Etsy for a little girl's room - especially when paired with a Princess and the Pea book!
| Cute Little Bowl Smile|
I LOVE these tiny geode-style bowls I found at Papernstitch. They're the size of your palm and the colors are beautiful!
| Coloring Book Smile|
These instructions on how to make a personalized coloring page from your own photos is a brilliant idea for a DIY gift. Think of how great series of vacation pictures would look! (Check out the comments - lots of people have made additional helpful suggestions.)
| Flower Smile|
These guy/girl vases from CB2 are great to add a little color and a smile to an unadorned wall.
| Greeting Card Smile|
While not technically a holiday gift (although some of the cards have a holiday theme) the greeting cards from this Etsy store will make the recipient smile all year long.
| Mom Smile|
A magnet from Cafepress for mothers (especially of teenagers) everywhere, accompanied by a tired, somewhat exasperated smile.
| Clock Smile|
I think this is my favorite smile of all - Kim the Talking Clock from Uncommon Goods. Kim is a wall alarm clock. Touch her nose and her eyes light up as she tells you the exact time. AND the alarm sounds like a crowing rooster. Just try and not smile - I dare you!
