OH, the holidays. A time of year filled with cheer, love, and stress over what to gift the grandparents. Does anyone else have this problem? The holidays are officially here, and until about 2 weeks ago, all I could come up with was, like, a package of peanuts and church socks. #BORING Don’t worry! That didn’t last long.
I was looking for Christmas cards on the Shutterfly website when I saw their section full of personalized gifts! Anytime I am thinking about visiting my parents, or my husband’s parents, they always make sure I am bringing my kids. They don’t even like to see me anymore since I gave them grandchildren; they are all that matter to them anymore. Okay, that’s a joke, but we all know that grandparents obsessssss over their grandchildren. Almost daily, I get asked by one or more grandparent if they can have a video or picture of my kids. So, why not give them something they REALLY want for Christmas . . . pictures of their grandkids! But, not in a frame to place on that shelf that already has a million pictures on them. Why not place your precious cherub’s face on something the grandparents will USE or DECORATE with!?!
My mother-in-law loves hot chocolate at night time! I ordered the Big Latte Mugs because they are so perfect for hot chocolate and/or soup! Who wouldn’t want to drink out of a cup with Hefty Henry on it?
AND, I am adding these collage pillows to their Christmas as well. I love the heart cut out in the center of all the pictures! These pillows are such a fun way to not only display grandchildren but also keep memories of these fleeting moments.
And although I think they wish I could put my kids in a Santa sack for them for Christmas, I don’t think CPS would feel that to be appropriate, so I am stuffing these adorable HUGE custom Santa sacks with personalized gifts that are ALMOST as good as the actual little humans themselves.
I didn’t stop at the grandparents! My husband just received a promotion, and a pretty new office came with it. Plenty of wall space with no family pictures! These gorgeous acrylic prints with aluminum mounted hardware are the perfect addition to his modern construction office. We had the best time sneaking into his work space, hanging these, and surprising Jeff with an early Christmas gift.
So, what personalized gifts from Shutterfly are you giving this year?
