Holiday Gift Guide: Christmas Countdown
By Shandra Hill Smith

Countdown to Christmas! Check out these extra great gift finds as you continue to check off your lists. 

Share a gift of lasting Christmas memories with the Christmas Cactus in Basket from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM. Arriving in ready-to-bloom bud form, the succulent Zygocactus (Christmas cactus) produces beautiful red and white blooms year after year.

Rustic and nostalgic, the Personalized Mason Jar Set from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM can make for a gift that’s uniquely theirs when you personalize by adding a monogrammed letter. The set includes four jars that hold up to 16 ounces each.

We wish you a fruitful Christmas! The Fruit Filled Christmas Sleigh from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM includes a red wooden sleigh planter filled with apples, oranges and pears — perfect for the health-conscious recipients on your list.

What can you give the woman who has almost everything? How about a perfectly packaged preserved rose. Infinite Rose Blooms from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM come individually or as sets in colors to include red, lavender and pink. The roses that have been treated to last for years come in four-inch glass cube vases. www.1-800-FLOWERS.COM

Santa is sure to be impressed when your little ones leave the big guy a special message with the holiday-themed Santa’s Message Plate Set. The eight-inch plate set includes a milk jug and treat bowl. www.signals.com
