LEMAX & GIFT SPICE 2019 Holiday Photo & Video Contest

Christmas in July!

Christmas in July!

Nothing beats that warm, fuzzy feeling Christmas brings.  The smell of pine needles, cookies and delicious turkey.  The joining of family and friends, the sharing of gifts, it brings that wonderful internal glow that caused the Grinch's heart to grow.  But why does that feeling have to be stuck to once a year?

Truth be told, the giving Christmas spirit shouldn't be relegated to once a year.  As countless Christmas movies have told us, we should be willing to give and share throughout the whole year, but as humans, we typically need reminders.  One of the ways we thought could help would be to bring out our Christmas villages and add these great new pieces or create a cute new display.

 

 

The Merry Christmas Market is a new piece for 2019 that is a perfect centerpiece for a little holiday shopping center.  This facade has that homey, warm glow you've come to expect from Lemax.  Illuminating the shop keep, the sweet treats, the name and the star at the very top.  I, personally, enjoy the dual chimneys.  One for the fireplace to warm the home and one for the stove that makes the sweet treats.

 

 

Have you ever had a bad time at a food truck?  Food trucks are the new craze and rightly so, the food is almost always amazing.  Parking the new Peppermint Food Truck outside the Merry Christmas Market would be the perfect pairing of presents and tasty goodness to keep your Christmas display alive and happy.  It also comes with a nice little figurine that can be setup outside the food truck, trying to figure out what to order, or outside the market while they decide on what present to get. 

 

 

 

Finally, we have these two new figurine pieces to really bring your little shopping center to life.  The Kettle Corn Stand, which is already becoming one of our most requested items, is always ready to bring those massive bags of sugary, savory goodness to your shoppers.  Play With Me rounds out the display by bringing some whimsy and joy to your shoppers.  With a snowman and his snow-dog trying to enjoy the festivities and another dog trying to get the snow-dog to chase him.  

This small new display is the perfect way to remind yourself to keep the Christmas spirit alive all year round.  It only takes one plug for the Merry Christmas Market, you get a small white mat or a nice decorative doily and you have a start to your year-round winter wonderland.

Holiday Pub Crawl

November 29, 2019

Pub Crawls are generally a display of drunkenness and rowdy behavior.  However, in our Lemax villages, we like to imagine that these places are filled with warmth and merriment.  This week we have two different pubs that would go with whatever themed village you have on display this year.

 A couple weeks ago, we talked about Lemax's North Pole Tower and how it is the center of Santa's town.  This week, we have another piece from Lemax that is new to Gift Spice, the Sugar Plum Bakery.  It's a quaint little piece that goes perfectly as an elf bakery or somewhere that Santa's helpers can enjoy their break time.

Ice skating can be one of the most beautiful things to witness, but also one of the most painful to learn.  As anyone who has ice skated can attest to, it can make you very cold and very wet, very fast.  You also learn why hockey players wear all those pads.  You need a good sense of balance and to make sure that you don't give up.  It can be very daunting and there is a lot of room for quitting, but if you learn how, you get to glide around the rink like you're in a fairy tale.  Our piece this week from Lemax is just a tiny piece of that.
