Sitting Bunny Ornament A Distinctive Holiday Gift

It could be said that an ornament collection is not quite ever complete. Each year, add a new ornament to a friend’s collection with any one of these unique options. For a festive touch on a gift package, simply fasten the ornament to the gift with ribbon or thread. An added accent goes a long way when giving gifts; little touches make the whole exchange much more heartfelt. Sitting Bunny Ornament will add sparkle to any tree, and Felt Star Ornament adds a handmade appeal. Maine moose features lights wrapped in his antlers for a truly magical touch to any holiday decorating.

A Gift from Maine

Ah, Maine. The sound of the ocean and the wind whispering through the pine trees. The smells of the sea salt air and the sweet hint of balsam fir in the forest. There are so many things that we cherish about our great state of Maine, and we love to share these things with all of you. Give a gift inspired by this great state with an Embroidered Balsam Pillow or an Embroidered Balsam Tree Ornament made right here in Maine; both are filled with fresh Maine balsam fir needles. This adorable terracotta owl will hold balsam essential oil, made right in Maine. Artist Harry Smith, from Maine, designed the tree ornament and the terracotta owl.

Peppermint Salt and Pepper Shakers For the Cook and Entertainer

Ring out the bells for Christmas, and grab the entertaining supplies, too! Every budding chef, and trained veterans, too, will appreciate a thoughtful gift made just for them and their kitchen. Festive accents like the Peppermint Salt and Pepper Shakers will make adding spice so much more fun during the holiday season. Whimsical Days of Christmas Flour Sack Towels feature fun interpretations of the classic holiday song with cheerful imagery for each themed line. Everyone needs a glass cutting board for their cheese plate – glass stays cooler than wood, and the bits of cheese are easy to clean off!

For the Kids

Make the holiday season magical with items that are sure to please every kid on your list. Gifts such as the Felted Flower Kit or the Felted Purse and Hat Kit will grab a child’s attention for hours and provide them with an engaging hobby that they can develop for years to come. Santa’s Key makes the arrival of the jolly old man himself magical for every home, especially those without a fireplace for Santa to slide down. Give the key with the instructions to a curious child, and then bake some cookies for the big man to enjoy on Christmas Eve.

Gifts for Friends

Close friends and family members deserve something special each holiday season. A perfect gift does not need to cost much, as is seen here with this selection of items. Grab the gift that will be both functional and decorative, all year long. With a Wine and Friends sack, bring a bottle of wine to the hostess’ party and leave the reusable sack for future usage. A whole range of soup bowls are available including the Comfort and Cheer option featured below. Start a new tradition with a friend by giving a puzzle piece wall plaque that can be adjusted and modified from year to year to accommodate new pieces.

Harvest Gift Ideas for $25 or Less!

Monday, October 3rd, 2011

At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, we’ve gathered some great gift ideas for the harvest season. Yes, the big gift giving season comes shortly after, but there are plenty of events where a gift this fall would be appropriate. Teachers, hosts/hostesses and those who maybe don’t appreciate candy, will love these harvest treats. A small something to show someone special you care or to say thanks for all they do, our gift ideas are thoughtful and easy on your wallet.


Candle Cards

A unique way to give a greeting card and a candle in the same gift! Our Witch Way to go Candle Card (as seen here to the right) decorated to look like an old-time greeting card, features a retro Halloween design. Our Thanksgiving Candle Card presents a big turkey with bright beautiful feathers being pulled near, by the Thanksgiving Day cook; all in a vintage color palate. Both of these candle cards are designed on canvas wrap and have a candle with an 80 hour burn time with lovely aromas. $24.95 each.


Harvest Soaps

A perfect little gift to give out as a favor to your guests at any harvest gathering is our harvest and Halloween themed soaps. Our Witches Brew Bar Soap, pictured here to the left, is spooky and fun with a light shea butter and olive oil scent. Another Halloween themed soap is our Happy Halloween Bar Soap that has a glowing full moon and pumpkin design with a scrumptious pumpkin spice scent. We also have our Harvest Apple Soap which displays a black crow waving the American flag atop a freshly picked basket of apples; featuring a yummy apple scent. All of our soaps listed here, are handcrafted of the finest all natural ingredients in the USA. $5.95 each.


Pretty Leaves

This is a gift idea that is perfect for both the autumn or holiday season. Our new Leaf Ornaments are exceptionally beautiful whether you choose to hang on a cupboard or a tree. These real leaf ornaments are handcrafted in the USA, with various natural and man-made materials. The Full Moon Maple Leaf Ornament, as seen here, appears as if it were dipped in gold. Our Lacey Oak Irridescent Ornament, simply glistens of fall spirit and showcases the intricate vein detail of the oak leaf. All of the leaf ornaments have a lovely berry or green colored organza ribbon to hang. Another idea for these pretty leaves, is to attach them to the top of a wrapped gift, for a sophisticated look. $16.95 each.


Autumn Fillers

If you’ve got an empty glass vase or glass centerpiece laying around, or are in need of a little autumn accent somewhere in your home, then these autumn fillers are for you. Our Autumn Mix, seen here to the left, contains a variety of faux pumpkins, gourds, leaves and berries in shades of gold, yellow, orange and tan. ($14.95) Though if you’re looking for something more simple, try our Mini Faux Pumpkins. The adorable little pumpkins are so bright and detailed, there are lots of ways to use them. ($19.95) But maybe your friend needs a little fall flare as well, and that’s what makes these autumn fillers great gift ideas too.
