Christmas Gift Guide & $300 Giveaway

by Alli

We all have that hard-to-buy-for person when it comes to holiday gifting.  I have two; my mom and dad. It’s not that they are super-picky. They have everything! My mom mentioned a few days ago that if anyone buys her another kitchen gadget, she doesn’t know where she will put it. That’s why I created this Christmas Gift Guide.  (Keep reading to find out how to enter a $300 Giveaway.)

When it comes to buying gifts for mom, I always try to be a little more personable than just another kitchen gadget.  I always ask myself, “What’re their hobbies?  What’re their favorite foods?  What would be their dream gift?”

Christmas Gift Guide

When I think about my mom, I always think about gardening. She’s never met a flower she didn’t adore. Since I do most of my holiday shopping online,  I headed over to Harry & David and found the most beautiful Minerva Amaryllis Triple.  This is the perfect gift for mom and every time she looks at it, she’ll think about me. This could move me up in the ranks of being the favorite child. 🙂

Harry & David Minerva Amaryllis Triple

My dad is a foodie. I inherited that gene.  And he enjoys sweets.  He’s tall, thin and can eat anything without gaining a pound.  I WISH I had inherited that gene.  The perfect gift for my dad is the Deluxe Christmas Gift Basket from Harry & David.

Mom and dad will enjoy sampling the delicious assortment of specialty food gifts from this hand-packed basket.  And if company drops by, they have plenty to share.

Centerpiece Ideas

While I was browsing the Harry & David website, I noticed that they also offer holiday trees, wreaths, and centerpieces.  Since I have several holiday parties scheduled, two of the centerpieces immediately caught my eye.

The Woodland Deer Centerpiece comes from Teufel Holly, a fourth generation family farm.  It’s filled with noble fir, western red cedar, princess pine, painted pinecones, and faux red cranberries. The accordion bow tops it off and adds to the festive look.  I need this for my next party!

The other centerpiece that I fell in love with is the Evergreen Lantern.  A square-shaped wreath surrounds an ornate lantern holding a flameless candle. The candle lasts for up to 400 hours when using the included batteries.

Harry & David is a great resource for the holidays.  They have gift baskets, gourmet foods, wine, cheese, fruit clubs and more.  They have something for everyone and are the stars of my Christmas Gift Guide.

My favorite is their Dark Chocolate Mints! I couldn’t find them on their website but they are at the Harry & David store at the mall and I plan to buy some as I have every year since they started having a holiday store near me.
