Good things come in small packages! And, here’s my new favorite small package…Greetabl!

Created for those occassions when a card isn’t quite enough and you don’t need to spend upwards of $50 on flowers, Greetabl helps you curate a customized little box of joy.

How does it work? You choose a box from a bevy of options, select a gift to include, write a short note and then have the option of including 3 photos from your computer or Instagram and bam….your gift is off to your loved one.

I love you, Good Luck, I miss you, Thank you, Happy Birthday, Congratulations, You did it, I’m here for you, I can’t wait, See you soon or for no reason at all….they’ve got you covered.Screen Shot 2017-01-24 at 7.36.10 PMFrom a base price of $9 (box, photos and message), you can choose a little treat from as little as $3 up to $20, so all in, you’ll spend between $12 to $29. There are so many adorable options, you’ll wish you could include more than one thing.Screen Shot 2017-01-24 at 7.28.02 PMScreen Shot 2017-01-24 at 9.46.09 PM Screen Shot 2017-01-24 at 7.28.25 PM Screen Shot 2017-01-24 at 9.48.17 PM Screen Shot 2017-01-24 at 7.28.35 PMScreen Shot 2017-01-24 at 9.48.56 PM Screen Shot 2017-01-24 at 7.28.45 PM Screen Shot 2017-01-24 at 7.29.36 PMSometimes the smallest things can have the biggest impact?

5 Ways to Add Glamour to Your Holiday Gifts

brown-gold-and-white-holler-dollar-christmas-wrap-3We’re nearing mid December, so no pressure….but, it’s time to get wrapping! Even if you’re still searching for the perfect gift, here are 5 ideas on how to dress it up and add some glamour to your wrapping. As my mother always said…the wrapping IS part of the gift!

  1. Add sparkle – nothing says “celebrate” like a little glitter
  2. Top your gift with candy – if you have some extra candy canes in the kitchen, slide one under the bow
  3. Tie on an ornament, jingle bells or the first letter of the recipient’s name
  4. Add a spring of greens, berries or pinecones
  5. Layer your ribbons, so that your gift has textural interest and depth
