Embroidery is a great way to oomph your holiday gifting. Below are 5 ways to jazz up giftables this season as you go to parties and gatherings where small gifts are exchanged. You can find all the details on making the ornaments shown below in this blog post: How to Make Embroidered Ornaments for Christmas.

1. GIFT AN ORNAMENT

Small hoops framing an embroidered motif are charming handmade gifts. Instead of a little hoop you could embroider on felt and then add more felt to cover the back of the stitching.

Show off your gifted ornaments in a cello bag with shredded crinkle fill. The flakes above are from Flakes and Firs, and the bell is from Bells and Balls.

The Folk Art Bird Ornament is another thoughtful handmade gift your host will love putting right onto the tree.

2. TIE AN ORNAMENT TO A WRAPPED HOSTESS GIFT

If you’re gifting a wrapped package, tie an ornament on. Below left is from Flakes and Firs. Right is from Bells and Balls.

If you’re gifting a bottle of something fun to drink, it’s easy to tie an ornament to the neck of the bottle.

3. PUT LITTLE GIFTS IN A STITCHED BAG

For your stitchy friends, put embroidery scissors, needle minder and floss wax in a little stitched bag. Tie it onto a hoop to finish it off.

Gifting wine? Put a pretty stopper into a stitched bag and tie it onto the bottle. Use crinkle packaging to fill out the bag and show off the stitching.

4. GIFT STITCHED TEA TOWELS

Here’s a look at holiday-themed tea towels stitched with our Noel pattern. If you’d like to make something for year-round use, take a look in our Stick & Stitch Shop where we’ve got a variety of motifs, from moths to birds to flowers. 

5. WRAP A TEA TOWEL AROUND CANDLES, JAM JARS, WINE BOTTLES

See here a tea towel around a wine bottle and another around a candle–both of these are nice hostess gifts elevated with the addition of an embroidered tea towel.
