Happy December!

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season has always been “The Twelve Days of Christmas” song and the illustrated book we had growing up. 12 Days of Christmas Book

I’ve always wanted to do a wish list/gift guide based on the themes in the song, so I thought this would be a great place to try it out. Over the next few weeks, you’ll find gift ideas {handmade, vintage, projects and new products} each day themed literally &/or conceptually on the 12 days of Christmas.

Bear in mind these won’t be posted in 12 straight consecutive days, but check back often as I’ll be posting a little more frequently and potentially a few in one day! You’ll also see a few other fun holiday tidbits in between.

But, without further ado, On the first day of Christmas, my true love (could) give to me…

A Partridge in a Pear Tree

Today’s gift ideas are all handmade or vintage finds on Etsy and all $25 or less, with the exception of the Partridge Locket which is $32. All are great ideas for stocking-stuffers, gift accessories (tie the pear ornament onto the bow of a main gift), vintage lovers and the Partridge Family enthusiast (ha).
