Deck the Halls: 5 Decorative Gift Ideas for the Holidays

Last Updated: November 27, 2019

There’s something about the holidays—with your house full of people, music and tinsel—that makes the long dark nights feel warm and cozy rather than cold and dreary. A huge part of this festive feeling comes from decorating the house for all the visitors you’re expecting. Is your family’s style monochrome and modern, or colourful and traditional? Either way, taking the time together to hang an old favourite or a new delight brings forth fond memories and helps forge new ones.

Take pleasure in finding something perfect to deck the halls of a loved one’s home this year with Costco Photo Centre’s suggestions below.

A canvas print is a classic gift

During last year’s family get together, while snowshoeing by the lake, your dad took his best photo yet—the golden hour light had just hit the mountain top. The whole family loves that shot, now you can all enjoy the vibrant colours again as his new canvas hangs proudly in the family room. His new favourite talking point… after the grandkids, of course.

A canvas print is a classic, but perhaps you want a gift that is more unique? Don’t contain your creativity, split one image across multiple canvases in our 2 or 3 panel split or create a mini gallery with our cluster canvas option.


Metal prints make memories shine

You managed to capture a special moment between the both of you so don’t let it sit in your phone or camera, forgotten. Make your shared experience into a showstopping gift by printing it on metal and presenting it to your love. Unique and heartfelt, you will be sure to see the same look in their eyes when they open this gift and immediately reminisce on that special moment.

Metal prints have a glossy finish that brings an added dimension to images.

Make a bold statement with a framed print

Everyone coming together from near and far for the holidays is a busy, fun, enjoyably crazy time—but it’s a rare occurrence. It seems as though you all just arrived before you’re hugging each other tight and wishing safe journeys to all. That’s why the perfect gift for grandparents is an image of the family they hold dear. Give them a high-quality framed print that’s ready to hang straight away.

The bold lines of the thick frame handcrafted in Italy combine a contemporary look with a traditional finish. Frames come in black, brown or silver so there is a fit for every style.


Ornaments made to hang together

Help create family traditions by gifting new parents a modern, personalized ornament featuring their little munchkin. This adds a personal touch to their home at the holidays and is something that can be built upon year-on-year as their baby grows up, or with future additions to the family.

Choose metal ornaments that are beautiful, contemporary and durable for the excitable little hands that will be helping to hang these one day. Or choose glass ornaments that will add dimension to your tree by catching hints of festive lights with their beveled edges.
