If you are a housewife or know a housewife, here is a another great gift idea for you or her ... the decorative pitcher. These pitchers would be a proper gift for Christmas, a housewarming, a birthday, or even an anniversary. There is something about pitchers that just say "established, traditional home." They make great gifts because they add a splash of color and personality and tend to be affordable for gift-giving.
Here are six pitchers for six personalities.
1. The Ethnic Pitcher
Above: The arts and crafts lover, and especially the Slavic-American woman, for example, will appreciate the beauty of the pitcher above. She remembers watching her grandmother decorate eggs intricately for Easter and going to Orthodox church regularly as a child. She might even still have some nesting dolls tucked away in a closet somewhere. Polish, Bulgarian, Russian, Slovenian, and Serbian traditions all have intricate ethnic art patterns we can enjoy in their arts and crafts pottery.
2. The Niche Decor Pitcher
Above: We all know the gal that has a "thing" for a specific type of fruit or animal decor in the kitchen. She might like to decorate with apples, grapes, frogs, cows, or in this case -- roosters. She has them on her wallpaper trim, her toaster cozy, her fridge magnets, and now, she can have a rooster on her pitcher. This lady has been known to wear a gingham blouse and jeans, has a husband that likes to cut down his own firewood, and bakes the best apple pies you've ever tasted.
3. The Floral Pitcher
Above: Images of sunny days, orange juice, and blooming blue flowers come to mind when you look at this floral pitcher. The kind of woman that likes this pitcher is the quintessential lady, perhaps a southern woman who likes her sweet tea, long dresses, and friendly gossip.
4. The Statement Pitcher
Above: You know the kind of woman that would like this alligator pitcher. She has a unique taste, likes splashes of olive green or is fond of aquariums, and might be a little bit dangerous herself! You wouldn't be a bit surprised to see her in leopard-print leggings while she smokes her Virginia Slims.
5. The Classy Holiday Pitcher
6. The Kid Christmas Pitcher
