I wanted to share some gorgeous lighting-related gifts that have recently caught my fancy. I love the tongue-in-cheek quality of gifting one of these for for Hanukkah, the Festival of Light, but I think they'd be lovely Christmas treats as well!

in her Etsy shop. There is so much to love about them, I hardly know where to begin. So many ladies I know love to re-purpose mason jars for decorating, and this is a really elegant take on that. I also love that these particular jars are Canadian, as I have a special affinity for our neighbors to the north. The gentle glow this gives off is so lovely, and the uniqueness of this find makes it a great conversation piece for the home. She also makes little hanging votive versions which are equally adorable.
an awesome DIY project idea to create your own bottle lamps. I think this would be best attempted with a friend/dude who owns a drill, and may need to involve some alcohol and swearing, but isn't that what holiday prep is all about?
Other cool light-related gift ideas: bistro string lights for someone's porch or garden, gorgeous scented candles, origami lights, a cool lamp. And one of my all time fave holiday cards...
