Holiday Decor for Multi-Generational Households

No matter what you have in mind for your tree and table, it'll be more fun if everyone feels included. Here are some decorating and gift ideas that appeal to everyone from Generation Z to Boomers.

Tree Collars
If your tree skirt looks tired, consider a tree collar instead. It's a sophisticated way to hide a bulky tree stand and there are plenty to choose from, so you'll find one that blends with the rest of your decor. You can choose from metallics, wicker, and painted collars, or even make your own from a woven basket.

These began life as LOL Surprise dolls and have expanded by leaps and bounds. Now you can purchase many of your favorite toys in miniature, such as Rubik's Cube, Gudetema and even the ViewMaster stereoscope from 1939.  Tie some to a wreath or use them as stocking stuffers.

Not going formal? Google candycore decor and deck the halls in pinks and pastels. Take fairytale charm further with pink holiday napkins, pastel-colored ornaments, stained glass ornaments and scalloped table runners.

Advent Calendars
Created to count the days until Christmas, advent calendars are now available with all sorts of themes. Foodies will go for calendars with miniature candies or jams while children will love a Barbie- or Lego-themed calendar. There are even pet-themed advent calendars available this year, so no family members are left out.
