There’s something about holiday decorations that bring out the inner child in everyone, like when a home looks like Santa crash-landed his sleigh sending bits and bobs cascading like New Year’s fireworks onto every surface. You’ll be the most Instagram-worthy home in your neighborhood!
Do you love the holidays as much as us? Then imagine the joy that will fill your candy hearts once you lay eyes on IWA’s latest seasonal selection—enough to turn any apartment, home, or business into a mini North Pole—without setting you back too many gold-covered chocolate coins!
Deck the halls, nestle seasonal doo-dads and décor in every nook and cranny, and then IWA can help you distribute good spirits, literally and figuratively, as you Ring in the Jolly with a slew of great gifts guaranteed to fill loved ones with holiday cheer.
Deck the Halls
What are holidays without a wreath? We’ve got two festive options, so take your pick: real (lasts up to 3 months,) or faux (never out of place.)
Our Santa collectibles aren’t for little ones: proving once and for all the wine-loving man in the red suit is just like us! Choose from three premium hand-crafted poses.
Next, top off those holiday tables with a bright & shiny Reindeer Trivet of sturdy metal with rubber feet. Also in Snowflake design. (Perhaps you prefer Ceramic?) Either way, they won’t be lonely with a table full of Reindeer Placecard Holder buddies who will keep them company while reining-in guests.
For cocktails, make sure glasses and garnishes are twinkling with pewter or silver-plated Snowflake Cocktail Picks.
For the bar area, add one of our special holiday-edition cork cages—cork collecting has never been so attractive and convenient! Available as old fashioned Sleighs, in silver or patina; Holiday Boot; or Wreath.
And introducing (cue the twelve drummers drumming…)
Miniature Versions! Our wonderful, whimsical cork cages are now available as Ornaments! We have a jaw-dropping 20 styles—enough to decorate a whole tree! They’re way too cute to keep all to yourself; so buy two sets, maybe three!
Appropriate for year-round décor, match the ornaments to guests’ personalities to stuff stockings, adorn gifts—or be the gift, (even better around the neck of a special bottle to swap corks with, later.) Great for Host & Thank You Gifts, too.
Our eye-popping selection includes: Wine Barrel, Wine Bottle, Wine Glass, Eiffel Tower, Handbag, Ladies’ Boot, Hot Air Balloon, Teapot, Watering Can, Bird’s Nest, Guitar, Cowboy Boot, Pineapple, Dog, Sleigh, Snowman, Reindeer, and 3-Ornament Assortment.
So go ahead: tell guests to find their name attached to a Cork Cage Ornament on your tree to take home with them and remember your magical night forever.
Now Spread the Jolly!
Halls decked – check! Next on list? Spread good cheer. And how else but with Gifts! All the makings for holly-jolly holidays are just one-click-away.

Enclose this tip sheet on nice paper with your Absinthe Gift:
Fine absinthe – 1 oz. in a flared or open-mouth glass.
Absinthe spoon – allows water and melting sugar to pass into the glass below.
Sugar cube – gourmet sugar cubes take longer to dissolve
Ice-cold water – at-the-ready in a pitcher, carafe, or absinthe decanter
Absinthe, in the 106 -148 proof range, is not intended to be drunk neat. Temper with water to the strength of a glass of wine by pouring a small amount of water onto the sugar cube. Allow to sit for a minute to saturate, loosen and begin dissolving.
Then drizzle a slender stream, watching closely as the sugar and water mix and emulsify the essential oils to create a “louche”—the cloudy effect for which absinthe is famous. Coordinate pouring speed to dissolve the sugar cube around the same time the glass is nearly full. (The water-to-absinthe ratio should reach ~5:1.) Stir any remaining, undissolved sugar in the bottom of the glass. Take ice into account if using, as it will dilute further.
