The holidays in a Southern household usually involve a stunning tree, decor on the mantel, freshly baked cookies, and piles of perfectly wrapped presents. Whether you're the family member who decides to start their Christmas wrapping at 9PM on Christmas Eve or you've planned out your holiday wrapping (and purchased color-coordinated tags) months in advance, you'll want to take a look at these charming gift ideas. You can finish off your gifts with a streamlined, pretty paper – but what about turning to personal ornaments to deck your tree skirt this Christmas? Pick an ornament that represents your recipient, or one you know will be a fun reminder of your relationship. Fresh greenery is also a delicate touch on gifts, and can be done inexpensively with the trimmings from your tree or wreath. And, you can never go wrong with a large, decorative bow. Try curled ribbon for a playful touch, or an over-size burlap adornment for a rustic finish.
