If you are a personal friend of mine, you know that I love opera! I know this is all about Christmas with Kids, but let’s face it, many of us are looking for the perfect gift for our parent, spouse, sibling, or grown child here!
This first gift is a great way to commemorate your daughter’s first opera experience!
What girl wouldn’t want a beautiful Queen of the Night bracelet in a box with a pair of tickets to see The Magic Flute? I know that I’d love this! Check out all of these lovely bracelets!
This jewelry artist specializes in bracelets that the tell the story of an opera or ballet through symbolic beads and charms. They are very clever and beautiful. I really like that they can help you remember plot details. and it’s a great way to recall and celebrate favorite performances and events.
Did your daughter just sing her first operatic role at college this semester? Celebrate that with an opera bracelet!
Did your young ballerina dance in The Nutcracker this Christmas? There’s a Nutcracker bracelet for that! If she’s too young, get one for yourself to commemorate the event!
I love to get Christmas cards! I’m not so great at sending them every year, though. I think the motivator to actually sending them out is to have a great card that you are proud of. My favorite option is to upload a photo somewhere and get cool stuff printed using that photo.
One site that I love is VistaPrint. They have all kinds of crazy specials all the time and lots of templates. If you want to try something out, you might only have to pay for shipping!
I’ve used them for printing save-the-date magnets (these were awesome!), post-it notepads, and TONS of postcard projects. They also have yard signs, car magnets, t-shirts, business cards, notepads, and notecards just to name a few. Get a custom yard sign for your next party or a car magnet for your kid’s high school band!
