I cannot believe it’s October and I opted to write a holiday¬†post. What has come over me? I’ll tell you what – Minted has come through once again this year with a beautiful selection of amusing, traditional, and whimsical holiday cards.
My order arrived last week and¬†I am thrilled (once again) with the design and paper quality of these cards. The cards are also very customizable – flat, folded, booklet, photos, curved edges, gold foil, etc.¬†There’s no reason¬†not to order holiday cards¬†now.
This Sunday is Father’s Day. Does this mean that you’ll be spoiling your dad with a crafty¬†tie greeting card or¬†golf accessories? I’ve given my dad a variety of gifts over the years, some of which I rounded up in this post (just in case you’re looking for a last-minute gift idea). I’ve been a student forever, so naturally my¬†Dad has a collection of university t-shirts, sweatshirts, and mugs from a variety of Ontario universities. It’s¬†been a really convenient gift to buy since I¬†could shop in between classes. Luckily, dad loves them (or pretends to) and wears them all the time.
My dad seems to like anything that has the¬†letter “B”¬†on it (to match his first name, of course).¬†Because of this,¬†I’ve given him loads of “B” presents like the ones below (though not necessarily in white – my dad likes colour).
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Do you have any plans? Have you created a Valentine’s Day wish list? I think the traditional gifts of chocolates ¬†and flowers are just perfect. Beyond these things, gifts from the heart (or with hearts!) are irresistible now or at any time of the year, so you can scoop up goodies like the ones below and gift them to your loved ones (or yourself) throughout the year.
I haven’t posted anything about nutcrackers since 2010 even though these men are some of my favourite Christmas decorations. ¬†They can be placed on the mantle in a group, hung on the Christmas tree, or serve as colouring entertainment for the little ones in your family. They’re multi-purpose and they look great too.
