Holiday Shopping Done Easy, With Groupon Goods

This post is sponsored by Groupon, but as always, all opinions are my own. 

Christmas is less than twenty days away! In fact, I think its something like only 13 days! Thats not many, and if you are anything like me, you still have a bit (or a lot) of Christmas shopping left to do.

And, if you are just like me, you would rather sit at home in your pajamas and surf the internet for holiday gift ideas rather than packing up the kids in all their winter gear, loading them into the car and heading out the the overly crowded malls, in and out of stores, leaving with nothing. Enter Groupon Goods. They have all your gift giving needs for those special people in your life at a fraction of the cost! WIN! No joke, they have hundreds and hundreds of gift ideas, all on sale! Could there be anything better?

I have put together a few ideas of things I wouldn't mind seeing under the tree this year for myself (remember, all these items are available for a low price on Groupon Goods), including some compression socks for workouts and post workout recovery and an oil & vinegar mister (who knew there was such a thing???) 

And, for all those hard to shop for dads in your lives. How about a shower radio? Or one of these stylish leather bracelets. I don't know about you, but I find dad's/husbands the hardest to shop for!

And, of course, for the sweet little girls. What little girl doesn't love helping in the kitchen, so these Melissa and Doug play food sets are the best! And I am a believer in getting kids something to read/learn, so these learning to write books would be perfect for the preschool aged kids!

All these items, plus many many more, are all still available! Get the rest of your holiday shopping done with Groupon Goods. They have something for everyone on your list, including that hard to buy for person and even the dog.

Christmas Cards '16 with Tiny Prints

**Holiday cards were gifted to us in exchange for this post.** 

Christmas cards are one of my most favourite parts about the holidays. There is something special about getting snail mail that I just love. Admit it, you get excited when mail comes too! 

This year, we chose to do our cards with Tiny Prints again. We have had our cards done by them the past few years and always love how they turn out. And, this year again, they have so many great cards to choose from! You can get foil stamped or glitter, laser cut or rounded; anything you want your card to be. 

We went with the Framed Snowfall copper foil stamped card. I love the simplicity of one photo on the front, and the shimmery foil. I couldn't love it more. I think it matched perfectly with our photo this year! 

To make sending out cards even easier, Tiny Prints has all your stationary needs too, like these address stamps (which I love!) or personalized address labels. They will even go as far as addressing the envelopes for you! 

If you are still looking for your perfect Christmas cards, Tiny Prints has 40% off all cards when you use the code jinglebell plus free shipping on orders of $49, so you still have time to get them before the holidays!

Home Decor with Tiny Prints

The items mentioned in the post below have been gifted to me by Tiny Prints in exchange for this post. 

If you've been following along for any length of time, you will know that we recently moved to a new city, which means we got a new house. While we LOVE the house, there are pieces of it that just weren't our style, so slowly over the past 3 months, we have been changing bits and pieces of it. 

We started out simple and changed up some of the paint (it was an awful brown). We are into more cool tones, so went with a grey. We have also changed out some of the light fixtures, and Mitchell even made some mason jar lights for the kitchen, which I LOVE! Also in the kitchen, we switched out the laminate island countertop for a beautifully stained bamboo butcher block top, which is so pretty! 

New paint and light fixtures.
The rest of the house though, is pretty bare. We have yet to hang up many photos or any other type of decor. So, when Tiny Prints contacted me, I knew that would change!

These pillows are so amazing, They are big, and fluffy, and so soft! They make a great addition to the couches and the master bed. Not only are they pretty, they are super functional. they are perfect for resting your head on to watch TV, or for cuddling up to read a story. 

I love both kinds we got, the Mr and Mrs as well as the monogrammed pillow. They would be perfect for a gift, especially for a wedding. Tiny Prints has these pillows in different colours too. I got the girls each one for Christmas; a magenta one for Palmer and a mustard yellow for Charlie, to match their rooms and I love the way they turned out!

I have always wanted canvas prints for the house and these canvases turned out even better than I expected them to!  Now, I have to decide where I want to hang them! I ended up deciding on the 16x20" canvases and I am so glad I did because they are the perfect size. I think I want to make another gallery wall in the house, and I think these canvases would be the perfect addition to it. 

Tiny Prints has some other really great home decor items that I had my eye on (but held myself back from), like these Christmas Stockings. I love the idea of pretty stockings for our upstairs fireplace, where we will have our pretty tree (vs the also pretty, but child friendly tree downstairs). 

 I think our next steps are the kitchen sink and faucet, the rest of the kitchen countertops, and possibly the flooring (also a terrible brown colour!) But, the house is really starting to become what we want it to, and Tiny Prints has helped us along the way with all our personalized home decor needs.
