Shutterfly For The Win Again

Thank You Shutterfly for providing me product. As always all opinions and thoughts are my own

Hi Foxy Friends! Today I'm finally sharing our Christmas Cards! Each year, Mr. says that taking family photos is my Super Bowl...and he's pretty much right. After we get our pictures back, Mr. and I both sit down and go over the photos, saving the ones we love in a separate folder. I love that Shutterfly has more options that every this year. This is our 8th year buying from Shutterfly and each year just keeps getting better.

On a lot of cards you can choose Christmas or Holiday sentiment. You can choose the trim, and I feel like they keep giving you more options each year. And you can choose the cardstock.

When you load your pictures, you are able to see it in a variety of cards, so you can really get a sense of what it will look like. I think we had no less than 15 options we were looking at. But in the end we found the perfect card to match the style of picture we had.

When we were taking pictures, when I saw this crosswalk I KNEW I wanted this to be the back of our card. The best part is that the back comes with the card, no extra cost. You better believe we take advantage of that option!

Yes people were looking at us, and no I didn't care. It was 8am on a Sunday morning =)

Shutterfly is almost always having a sale as well, so right now is the best time to buy! If you think it's too late for Holiday cards, buy some Happy New Years cards. They have so many options for that.  Trust me, it's never to late to send cards, people love that you are thinking of them enough to send a card. So just do it, it's not too late, trust me!

Happy shopping for your Holiday or New Year cards!

Good White Elephant Gifts From Amazon For Everyone

Hello Foxy Friends! This year we have decided as a family that we're going to do a White Elephant, but instead of the traditional White Elephant, we're going to do a good white elephant, were we give good gifts, ones that we want to steal. Beacause in all honesty, what makes the game fun is when people start stealing things from each other. So here are some ideas I found on Amazon I found that would make good gifts for mixed company.

For Woman

This blanket scarf is so pretty.

This necklace is really pretty, I have one very similar and wear it all the time.

I love getting people cheese boards, because it's not something you necessarily buy on your own.

I have similar tumblers and they are awesome and keep my wine cool. Plus it comes in so many colors, bound to be something for someone!

For Men

For something under $30 this Whiskey set is pretty awesome.

Who doesn't need a good shaving kit? Also under $30

This is really cool, I think it would be great for a man or woman really.

For Anyone

This bluetooth speaker has almost 45,000 4.5 star reviews, and is under $25, a winner for sure.

Who doesn't need a phone charger? It has 4.5 stars and is only $10.

I could go for a good nail kit...I had one and then piece by piece it gotten

Gag Gifts

I mean this is pretty funny.

haha, this is too strange not to add to the list.

This takes fanny packs to another level.

I like burritos, I can turn myself into a burrito with this also comes in pizza or waffle.

Not sure if you're bathroom people, but this is hilarious...gross but hilarious.

Another potty thing, but sometimes you just need something to do...this is so weird.

There you have it, a ton of ideas for your next White Elephant gift exchange. Now the question is, what should I get, I want to go for something that isn't a gag gig. What would you want to grab at a white elephant?
