1. Start a new tradition with your family. Set up a Christmas Eve box filled with goodies (hot cocoa mix, pajamas, christmas book, etc.) and give it to your kids to open on the night before Christmas.
2. Wrap up small gifts using white paper streamers. Slowly wrap the gift with the streamer and ccontinuethe process. Add more little items as you wrap around each layer. Secure with a sticker and put each "snowball" in a clear bag. A simple idea that adds a creative twist to stocking stuffers.
3. The Minivan Express: It's a different twist to the Polar Express -- a more practical journey. Hand out tickets to the Minivan Express and a bag of popcorn -- and take your kids on a journey to view holiday lights around the town.

Skip the typical holiday wrapping paper and simply wrap up your next gift with a solid color. To make it "special" -- add the photo of the person you're giving it to! I found this photo online -- although I couldn't track where it was originally posted. It's a great idea!

Transfer some of your favorite pictures onto square, stone tiles using nail polish remover. It's a simple idea that can turn into a great gift idea.

Don't have time to create unique decorations for the home before your guests arrive? Take some pears and create a letter or design by pushing whole cloves into the fruit. Spell out a message or wish and add it to the dinner/dessert table.
Need a fun/easy option for placecards? Simply take some rosemary sprigs and tie it into a circle. Add a small piece of paper with your guests name on it. NOTE: Be careful not to snap the sprigs (you may have to soak it in water before beginning the craft.)
