Gifts to Give Your Family in the New Year
Posted by willowtree on January 29th, 2020
With a new year comes new hopes, aspirations, and dreams. It’s also a time to be thankful for family for the previous year, and any hospitality they showed you during the holidays. If you are looking for gifts to inspire, show love and friendship, or say thank you, consider sending the following to your family members.
If you are looking for gifts that will inspire your family members in the year to come, try giving them figurative sculptures that they can display around their home. A statue of a woman meant to change moods and lift spirits can inspire your family members through the power of nature. It can represent the small miracles that happen all around us every day, with carvings in her dress depicting butterflies, plants, birds, flowers, and the cycle of seasons. Her arms are open wide, inviting, and welcoming, inspiring your family member for the new year to be open to whatever may come.
Gifts of Hospitality
If your family hosted you for the holidays, consider thanking them for their hospitality with the gift of nativity figures for their home. It’s something they can display each year, or if they already have a nativity set, they can continue to add to it each year. The gift is as enduring as the story it portrays and is the ideal way to start a family tradition. While you can start with the Holy Family and a backdrop, you can also add figurative sculptures of the three wise men, the shepherd, stable animals, and more.
Thank You Gifts
Did your family throw a great New Year’s party? Do you just want to thank them for their support over the past year? Tell them how you feel with a thank you gift. You could go subtle with a woman presenting a bouquet of peonies, a heartfelt appreciation for ongoing support. Or you could gift them an angel figure holding a wireframe “thank you” expressing gratitude and inner peace, with the angel also representing the protection your family provides you.
Gifts of Friendship and Love
If you simply want to express your love for your family, choose a figurative sculpture of an angel crossing her arms in the American Sign Language sign for “love.” It’s the perfect way to express love and care that goes both ways, and how family members support each other. Another idea is a woman holding a wireframe “love you” inside a circle. These two small words mean so much, and serve as a daily reminder of your feelings for the recipient.
