It’s the most beautiful time of the year”…
Christmas time is inching closer and closer, and with the difficult time we’ve have the past two years, some well needed family festivities is surely necessary. So, turn on the Christmas music and put up your decorations to dive straight into the cheerfulness and fun. Just like every year there are certain trends that pop up during Christmas and influence your décor choices, this year that happens to be nostalgia.
Reminiscing about your younger years and all the fun you’ve had at school can be an enjoyable trip down memory lane, or perhaps remembering hilarious family moments and memorable trips, Christmas brings out the best in people.
To translate those nostalgic emotions into decorative gifts for friends and family why not consider printing your family name into beautiful cursive font to celebrate your lineage and ancestry. This can be a particularly emotional gift for grandparents and can easily turn into a gift that can be passed down through generations. With an excellent quality frame, encasing your tailored print it can easily become a long-lasting gift.
Speaking of passing down items, vintage pieces are deservingly sought after. Ornaments are an excellent way to implement this. From bauble tree ornaments to standing plaques, investing in such an item can effortlessly evolve into a vintage work of art, that can past through generations.
Another huge trend this Christmas will be dark colour palettes with gold accents. This is definitely an elegant option for the festivities on table settings and the mantlepiece. Gold cutlery instead of the usual silver as well as placing a glamourous deep green tablecloth will instantly brighten and take your Christmas décor to the next level.
Imagine purple candles paired with stark white polar bears, this colour scheme works wonderfully against dark feature walls. You can also translate these colour pallets into artwork that can be framed. Consider using these tones as the colour of your font if you contemplate the option of a dazzling poster as a present. With a powerful phrase or a heart-warming quote, a bespoke poster can be an impressive gift idea this Christmas.
It’s clear there is a botanical theme this Christmas as we’ve seen with numerous retailers the main theme is nature. But how easy is it to bring the outdoors inside? We suggest real Christmas trees instead of lacklustre plastic ones, a genuine Christmas tree embellished in gold accessorises and stunning baubles can liven up an atmosphere instantly and inject the Christmas feeling at once. An alternative way to insert nature into your home is through pictures of Christmas trees or angelic snowflakes.
This is a little bit of an easier method to execute such trends throughout the home, with a collection of images beautifully packaged, delivered to your friends or co-workers for some pre-Christmas joy you’ll be able to heighten the delight so apparent during Christmas.
Customised collages of images can be a heart-warming gift to your nearest and dearest. This gift idea will you the freedom to move your photos around to create the shape and style you prefer to deliver your message. To make a collage you would first have to pick a template, the most popular option is the picture pile collage.

All you’ll have to do is upload your photos on to your computer, once that’s done, you’ll be able to personalise your collage to fine tune the details to create a brilliant finish.
It’s common for collages to allow you to insert texts or additional design features to reflect the love you are seeking to display. Don’t be afraid to experiment with colours or themes in fact why not add their favourite colour to ensure it’s truly tailored to their preference.
