The snow is falling and a hint of sunlight sparkles like fairy dust on the white covered lawn. Have you ever noticed the white is so white, it almost isn’t white at all? I let the magic of the season wrap around me like a favorite blanket. I watch the lights twinkle on the tree and I want for one moment, to stop time, and just let the whole world feel this with me. Close your eyes, can you feel it?
This time of year, you will find me immersed in all things Christmas and creative. At home, on the Katherines Corner blog and in my Shops. I’m busy making everything Merry and Bright.
You will often find me "singing" Christmas Carols. Although I can't carry a tune in a bucket, I belt out Oh Holy Night, We Three Kings and the Twelve Days of Christmas like they were written for me.
I've created this gift guide with the intention of helping you find lovely gifts to give this holiday season. You will find many, many more lovely things in my shops. Some have been created by me and others I have curated. I invite you visit my shops where so much more will be discovered at Katherines Corner Shop, Keepsakes by Katherine and A Zen Spirit.
I look forward to the pleasure and the privilege of having you as a customer.
I pray you will enjoy the season and all that it gives.
Merry Christmas, Seasons Greetings, Happy Hanukah and happy Kwanzaa too, Hugs from Katherine

GIFT GIVING TIPS
Simple tips for gift giving for a family member or close friend
•The most important tip is to pick something they will love. You need to buy for them, a thoughtful gift is a gift given with them in mind.
•Know their interests, collections and things they love. Look around their home, note their favorite colors and styles.
•Have something created just for them, personalized gifts are always well received.
•Consider a gift that will spark happy memories or an intimate gift like jewelry, or a sentimental gift that is a symbol of your friendship, love or favorite memory.
•Do you know they need something, like an appliance or something they borrow often or have expressed a desire to own? Consider giving them a surprise, from their “Wishlist”.
Simple tips for gift giving for a neighbor or work friend.
•If you don’t know them very well a simple gift like a kitchen towel, tea towel, or cooking supply along with the recipe for your favorite cookies is always well received.
•If you’re buying for a secret Santa gift exchange, ask someone who knows them well what they like, or engage them in conversation and ask about things they like during the holiday season. For example, my favorite thing is getting cozy around the fireplace snuggled in a nice throw and sipping hot coco, can be a spark to buy a throw, shawl, or mug with cocoa mix.
Wrap it Up
•Wrap the gift in their favorite color or attach an ornament perfect for them. For instance, an ice skater would love a pair of ice skates ornament attached to the ribbon or bow. These simple things will help you make just the right choice for gift giving to your friends and family this year.
I hope these simple tips will help to make your shopping easier this holiday season.
