It’s All About the Holidays

Once again, the holidays are sneaking up on us – Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year’s. Here at Coastal, we want to provide you with all of the ideas and products you need to greet each holiday with success and ease.   


Of course, we carry more than a dozen different types of plastic, ceramic and aluminum ornaments to decorate your holiday tree in any way you like! 

Create ornaments for your friends, family and yourself!

No more searching stores for overly expensive ornaments that aren’t exactly what you want – make them yourself! Or, create personalized ornaments for your customers. These also make perfect gifts!   

After spending all of that time finding magical items to fill your stockings, doesn’t it make sense to have special stockings as well? Coastal offers a holiday stocking with red piping for this exact occasion! Personalize the stocking with names, pictures or just holiday cheer!   

Glitter heat transfer vinyl can turn any holiday shirt into a sparkling piece of work! DigiCut Glitter is a quick and easy heat transfer vinyl to put a little glitz and glamour onto any holiday garments.   

Gift giving   

Homemade, creative gifts are all the rage now, so why not make personalized mugs for your friends and family?   

Mugs can be the base of some great gift packages!

Mugs can be decorated with names, favorite pictures or sayings or even your own art. Fill them with hot cocoa mixes, throw in some mini-marshmallows and you have a sweet homemade gift ready to give. These are also great ideas for co-workers and neighbors!  Plus, we now carry gold and silver mugs to create a more festive gift! 

Do you want a creative, earth-friendly way to give gifts this year? Try our sublimation tote bags! These white, non-woven bags are great for making decorative gifts bags that can be used again and again. Our tote bags can be used with full or partial sublimation, as well as heat transfer…so they’re perfect for everybody. Not only can they be used again as a gift bag, they can be used as grocery bags, over night bags and more!

Another great gift idea is photo frames. Parents, grandparents and long distance relatives would love to have frames made especially for them to show off photos.    

Photo frames make great holiday gifts!

We even carry photo panels that allow you to sublimate the actual photo directly onto substrate to create a stunning, permanent memento of your treasured photos.   

Jewelry is always a hit when it comes to gifts. Make pretty accessories for special people in your life with Coastal’s charm bracelets and a variety of necklace charms. Store them in individualized jewelry boxes!   


Nothing makes a great holiday dinner like personalized napkin rings and name holders. You can even create cute keepsake name holders out of our small round streamline awards. 

Use small awards to create memorable keepsake name holders.

Napkin rings can be created for each separate holiday and, with our additional inserts available, you can easily switch out the designs to celebrate different occasions.   

Don’t forget the aprons! With all of the cooking and baking that goes on this time of year, it’s important to make sure you’re protected from all of the unexpected spills and splashes. Our aprons work with both heat transfer and sublimation and will be the talk of your kitchen!   

You can even have the kids help design the tray for Santa’s milk and cookies!

There are so many ways you can create a beautiful holiday for your family and your customers with Coastal’s help. We offer even more great products on our website,
