1. HOLIDAY FRAMES

Not only do these frames look lovely in your home, they also make great gifts to friends and family! The possibilities are endless for how you may style them, but here are a few ideas:

  • A wedding photo for your first married Christmas
  • A family photo with all of your names featured
  • Your family’s Christmas card framed as a gift for Grandma and Grandpa
  • A gift for a newlywed couple featuring their married name (there are non-seasonal frames you can do this with, as well)
  • A gift for a friend to insert her own favourite family photo into

See what we mean? Endless possibilities!

Leave it as is or fill it with sparkling blooms, you cannot go wrong when choosing this garland.

For a warm, austere look, pair them with the eucalyptus garlands and any white crockery you have in your kitchen.
