Words strong enough to make the heart go pitter-patter even after staying with one another for years. What if your Christmas gift to your wife could also reflect the same emotions. Well, honestly it is very much possible to get her something special and unique even after all these years of living together.
A ‘Circle of Life’ Trinity ring – You can get your wife a trinity ring made out of three different metals such as silver, gold, and platinum. Then get the words ‘past’, ‘present’, and ‘future’ calligraphically etched behind the silver, gold, and platinum bands respectively. The silver would thus indicate how she stood beside you during your struggling days, the aurum band would reflect how she fills your life with a golden aura of joy and contentment and the platinum stria would tell her that not only do you see a most cherished and enigmatic future ahead with her by your side, but also how rare and precious an experience shall your journey together appear at the end of the road. On the outer surfaces of the ring you could get the words ‘Circle’, ‘of’, ‘My Life’ engraved on the three bands one after the other to sum up the concept. Also, you could write the meaning of the three bands and leave it inside the ring box and get the following lyrics embossed on the cover or inside of the box.
It’s the Circle of Life
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the Circle
The Circle of Life
“.
One unique Christmas gift ideas for your wife that will surely bring a tear to her eye and a smile on those crimson lips.
Platinum Hoops for Monkey Business – Jewelry and women being best friends, you can never fail with a trinket. So, buy her those very in vogue platinum hoops. However, presentation is always very important and just giving it to her in just a jewelry box is so clichéd. So here’s what you can do. Buy a black, suede finished monkey mannequin in a seated posture, knees pressed against the chest. It should be black because it will make the white platinum stand out. Now get the words ‘Your love makes me wanna monkey around with joy’ inscribed on the backside of the mannequin and place the earrings on the ears of the monkey. Leave this on your wife’s dresser and she’ll go from “Oh!” to “Oh wow!” with bliss.
A Family on the Finger-top – A woman never feels complete without her entire family about her and here’s what you can do to ensure that she feels close to all of them at all times. Just find out what is your, your better half’s, and your kids’ birthstones as per the zodiac signs.

Place it in front of the family picture and your wife will never part it from herself ever again. You can also keep adding the number of rings with increase in the family members’ number!
Candles of Peace – Christmas is essentially a time that floods our life with light and warmth. So, making aromatic candles for your wife will surely rekindle that love and affection in your lives. To strengthen the allusion to joy and contentment, you can make one of the Chinese ideograms of ‘Zen’, ‘spirit’, ‘love’, and ‘peace’ on the surface of each candle with a small, personal phrasal message below. Something to keep her aglow for sometime.
A Heart to Rest On – How often have you told your wife “you fill up my heart”? Here’s how you can actually allow her to fill it up figuratively.

Have you been searching for some good, affordable Christmas gifts for your family members and friends for a long time now? You are really tensed, since Christmas is soon to come and you are absolutely empty-handed without a single gift at your end. Then what? To worsen, you don’t have much of cash to spend this time around as you had the previous year. So, the bottom line is, you are in a big fix. Do not worry, the article given below will help you go about it in an easy manner and help choose the right kind of gift as well. Make your choice from the list of inexpensive ideas given below.

Chocolate Gift Baskets

Well, this is the best family idea for this occasion. What you could do is make homemade chocolates, wrap them with different-colored aluminum foils, and place them in cute baskets. You can buy the gift baskets from nearby stores. They aren’t expensive. For making chocolates, you would need dry fruits, and ready-made cocoa powder, that’s it! Chocolates would be loved by kids and adults alike, so go ahead with this idea. Alternatively, you could make some delicious Christmas cookies or cupcakes to replace the chocolates.

Christmas Cards

Another idea is to make Christmas cards at home itself. Now, for this, you would need to buy the decorative material and paper from the stores along with color chalks and sketch pens. If you are artistic and love drawing or painting, then explore your skills and go ahead with this. Along with the greeting, you could write a letter for the person you are making the card for, and this is sure to make their day special.

Memory Albums

What better could it be, than to pile up some best captured moments all together in an album! For this, buy a journal or a big notebook album, choose some best photographs, say with family or friends or a special someone, and stick them up in the album as per your wish. You could also write some quotes or experiences, which you remember very evidently. Alternatively, you could also make an album of the fun times during the previous Christmas years in a year wise format. This is, in my opinion, the best creative present you could gift anyone.

Winter Clothing

If you know how to knit or sew, then you could make a muffler, a cape, or a scarf for your siblings, friends, or your parents. However, remember, you would need to start off pretty early so that you complete it on time. Instead of buying expensive winter coats, hand-stitched thermals would be appreciated more, and would prove to be useful, and certainly the best gifts for men and women alike.

Instead of shelling out too much of cash, it would be better to make use these homemade ideas and surprise one and all. Along with this, plan a nice cozy dinner with your family and friends by making some unique Christmas recipes. Merry Christmas!
