For a little twist, you could add up some ribbons or do some personal touches by buying some fabric paints and make a design of your own or simply add some names on the ready made pillow cases that you bought. Since these pillow cases will only be used during Christmas season, these will not be easily worn out and can be reuse for the next three years perhaps.
I use to do it at home when I was still working in the Philippines and I also buy some matching place mats and hand towels just to have a feel of the Christmas spirit at home.
Of course, this will be in addition to the traditional Christmas Tree which we can never do without.
