The Old World Christmas Gift Guide Round Up

Gift giving always tops our list as one of the best Christmas traditions. Obviously, we’re very biased and believe Christmas ornaments make the best gifts, but we also know that anything over done loses it’s uniqueness. The best of both worlds features great gift ideas with an ornament gift topper, and over the last couple years, we’ve made a number of gift guides for all of our favorite people—complete with corresponding ornaments—and we’re sharing them all here today. It’s a gift guide round up!

Gifts For the Foodie 

Foodies can be picky. They can be downright (food) snobs, but we came up with a unique list of gadgets and ideas for even the most seasoned food lover for Christmas. We especially love the book list on this gift guide to expand your foodie’s knowledge of how interesting food can actually be. 

Gifts For the Guy

We can debate all day long who is harder to shop for: men or women. But, when shopping for a “guy” we’ve got it figured out. The fun part is that, with the exception of the alcohol, it doesn’t matter what age “the guy” is—he can be a 14-year-old techie or a 44-year-old game and movie guy. Don’t miss the gift guide for the guys, along with recommended ornaments. 

Gifts For Your Parents 

There’s no debate here, parents are always hard to buy for. They never seem to need anything, or the things they want they just buy for themselves. We created a “get out of a rut” gift guide with creative ideas—new skin care regimens and supplies for a cozy night in—topping the list. 

Gifts For Your Wife

We’ve all heard cringe-worthy stories of gift requests getting lost in translation, and wives getting a robe or “pots and pans” instead of “tops and pants.” Fear not, this list has an idea for the Harley-riding biker chick to the peace-loving hippie babe. You will nail the gifts this Christmas!

Gifts For the Teens

Technology is the name of the game for teens, which is great, but sometimes a niche hobby or activity can make for some great gift giving. We compiled a great list for teens to get you started, but don’t forget an ornament or two for them. They might not appreciate it now, but will in the future.

Gifts For Your Husband

What a guy! Sometimes gift giving can get boring between husband and wife. Maybe it’s time to think outside the (Christmas) box, and capitalize on a fun activity. This Christmas gift idea generator is a great place to start


To Mom With Love

She does so much, and deserves the best, and the gift guide for mom highlights a few hobbies and activities to spoil mom this Christmas. And, keep in mind, we’ve never met a mom who would turn down an Old World Christmas ornament as a thoughtful gift!


For my Wonderful Dad

He doesn’t need another pair of slippers, a t-shirt, or a soap-on-a-rope, and he’d probably tell you not to buy him anything in the first place. But you gotta buy something for your sweet dad. This gift guide features lots of ideas for dads of all ages and interests. 


Much Love for the Boyfriend

A practical gift that’s not too personal plays it safe during Christmas. But what’s something that is unique and stands out among all the regular gifts? We came up with a gift guide that might spark a few great gift ideas for the one you love most.


This Christmas give gifts that matter, and of course, don’t forget an ornament to go with them! Happy gift giving from Old World Christmas.
