The hustle and bustle of the holiday season has made many people lose sight of what’s special about this time of the year. This year, instead of a gift purchased on impulse, give a gift from the heart: one made by loving hands that embraces its recipient in thoughtfulness and creates a lasting memory. We want to take you back to a time when gifts were more meaningful, when holiday family traditions were as much a gift as the box with the shiny bow. Our Holidays from the Heart series will provide you with gift ideas, decoration tips and more to prepare you for the most wonderful time of the year—full of good cheer and heartfelt traditions you can pass on to future generations. Each week until the end of December we will bring you inspiration for heartfelt gifts, fun family projects and party hosting.

The AB crystals are meant to capture the beauty of the Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights that paint a rainbow of colors across the night sky. You can bring the Northern Lights into your home—or even wrap them up in a gift—with Swarovski crystals in an AB finish. We’ll show you how to make their beauty last through the winter and brighten up handmade gifts.
Keep the Magic of Christmas Alive
You can ring in the New Year after adorning your tree with these stunning ornament ideas. Our Retro Ice Ornaments can dangle from your window like indoor icicles or dance on Christmas tree branches and play with the twinkling lights. If you’re looking to add a bigger and bolder crystallized impression, try recreating our Prismatic Christmas Ornament idea! The list of alternative components includes crystals with an AB finish for an amazing holiday display.
A Sparkling Tweet for Bird Lovers
To all of the bird lovers out there (you know “hoo” you are!) we offer fun gift ideas that incorporate eye-catching color and the beauty of nature. Read the instructions for our Hoo’s Watching for a fashionable piece that’s sure to be a conversation starter. The 4mm AB bicones surrounding the owl pendant really help it stand out!
Full of feminine colors, our Renewal Bracelet makes a great gift not only for the holiday season but for birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions. Punch up the excitement by swapping out the 6mm Swarovski bicones in Padparadscha with the color Amethyst AB (or Amethyst AB 2X). This would make a wonderful gift for little girls and little girls at heart.
Our Tweet Necklace was actually a gift to our designer Cheri on her birthday! If you’re stumped on what to get for the bird lover in your life, this idea is an outstanding choice. Again, your AB touches don’t have to always be crystal clear—the Sapphire AB crystals in this necklace are what bring all of the elements together. Recreate it with personal touches, like colors that reflect the recipient’s personality.
A Gift Too Good to Give
You can keep this one for yourself! This Aurora Necklace epitomizes the Northern Lights with its large, sparkling focal points and simple display. Wear at a formal outing or keep it for a more casual event—either way you will be catching everyone’s eye.
