November Citrus Lane

Our November Citrus Lane box arrived yesterday! This time of year, I hope for items that will make good Christmas gifts for my son. At first I was disappointed in this box. There wasn't really anything that I thought would make an excellent gift for him. Then, I started thinking outside the box (haha!) and looked beyond my son! I was able to cross three people off my Christmas list with this box!



Faber-Castell Watercolor Paper Pad - This paper is a really nice quality! I was shopping for a Christmas gift for my artsy niece and this is the perfect gift for her!
$7.45

Faber-Castell Watercolor Crayons - We have received some of their beeswax crayons in the past and loved them! I'm a crayon snob and their products definitely pass the test! These will also go to my niece for Christmas.
$15

Barefoot Books Animal Boogie Mini Cube Puzzle - The quality of the puzzle is great! I also plan to use this as a gift item, but a 3 year old niece.
$13

Juice Beauty Age Defying Hand Cream - This was a customization option. I was able to choose between this product or two others. I wasn't really impressed with any of the options available to us and settled on this one. I have a gift exchange to attend next month and I think I'll throw this in with my gift. While I may not like it, many people love this product!
$12

Tiny Prints 25% off holiday cards and free shipping coupon - I typically don't enjoy the coupons that come with our boxes, but this one is really good! Perfect for ordering Christmas cards!

Melissa and Doug Advent Calendar - This was an "add to box" option. Each month Citrus Lane picks items from their shop that you can add (for cost) and you get free shipping. I can't wait for December 1st to set this up!
$20

The total value of this box was about $47, not including the savings from the Tiny Prints coupon or the add to box item. One month of Citrus Lane costs $29, so that's a great deal! You can save 50% off your first box by signing up using my link. $47 worth of products for $14.50 is an awesome deal! Sign up now and get a December box to help you with Christmas shopping!

Picking out the perfect holiday card

Post contains sponsored links from Minted.  All opinions and thoughts are my own.

One of my favorite parts about the holidays is the cards! It's the one time of year I can count on receiving fun mail! No one sends cards or letters anymore. Our mailboxes are full of bills, advertisements and junk 11 months out of the year. Heck, I didn't even receive any birthday cards in my mailbox on my last birthday!

But I can always count on Christmas. It's the one time of year people love to send mail! I'm so glad that this tradition hasn't lost it's way in our overly techie society. Thanks to my awesome, photographer sister, we have a photo shoot every fall. I get to pick out my favorite photos to send in a Christmas card to all of our friends and family. I could spend hours pouring over all of the photo card designs trying to find which one fits us best each year. 

Minted has over 600 holiday photo cards to choose from and they make it easy to pick the one you love! They have this really cool design feature where you upload your own photos that you want to include in your design. Then while you're browsing the hundreds of designs available, it's easy to see which ones will work best for your photos. 




Minted has a design for everyone. Whether you want to showcase a lot of photos and tell a story...



























Or share the highlights from your family's year.




They have designs that are fun...





























and designs that are simple. Whether you want to show off one photo...





























or lots of photos!





























If you added a new baby to your family this year, how perfect is this card!






























I love these photo postcards from Minted! This is a great way to save money during the holidays! Did you know that a postcard stamp is 15 cents cheaper than a regular stamp? That may not sound like much, but when you have a lot of cards to send out, every little bit counts during the holidays! Not only do you get to send a photo with these postcards, but you can send a message on the back!

























Or if you want your cards to stand out this year, Minted has shaped cards that customizable. You pick the design and shape you like best. You can even play around with the color schemes.



























I can't wait to see all of my friends and family's holiday cards displayed on our wall this year! And I can't wait to design our own Christmas card to send out! Minted has some great coupon codes to help you save on your holiday cards! If you order by November 10th you can get free shipping and $25 off your order with coupon code CHEER25FS!

Do you send out holiday cards? What kind of cards are your favorites?
