Etsy Item of the Day: Hippo Christmas Cards

Leave a comment

Hippos, polar bears, and snow—oh my! The Memorable Image creates cards featuring photographs of scenes made with miniature animal figurines, and boy are they cute. So adorable, in fact, that I couldn’t decide which hippo card I liked best, so I just have to highlight both!

Check our their other Christmas cards for additional animal options, such as dinosaurs, owls, penguins, and more.

Etsy Item of the Day: Creative Cookie Cutters


I love baking (and eating! ;) ) sweet treats and cookies, so when I saw the cookie cutters at The Buttercup House on Etsy, I stopped in my tracks. They have all kinds of neat cookie cutters, such as holiday shapes, states, alphabets, animals, and more!

If you are planning a themed party anytime soon, you will likely find a cookie cutter to fit your theme. Peruse their collection to find the right one for you or buy a few for your friend who loves to bake. I really like this polar bear, but I also really like this gnome!

If you have any friends or loved ones who are Jewish, you might like to see this dreidel cookie cutter or menorah cookie cutter.

Etsy Item of the Day: Starfish Santa


Teehee! This little starfish ornament is so funny! If Santa were a starfish, this is what he would look like—sporting red swim trunks, shades, and his signature red hat. He is holding a fishing rod in one hand, but if fishing isn’t your style, you can get a starfish Santa with skis, a golf club, a volleyball, or holding nothing at all. This would make a nice gift for anyone who loves the beach or collects cute Santa ornaments.

Etsy Item of the Day: His & Hers Stockings

Leave a comment

The stockings in this Etsy shop are so pretty, and each design is full of details that you may not notice at first glance. Take these his & hers stockings, for example. The stockings are quite lovely, but upon a closer look you will see mistletoe hanging from the stag’s antler. How cute and clever! These stockings would be a sweet gift for any couple—new or seasoned.

Etsy Item of the Day: Plush Octopus Ornament

These chubby octopus ornaments are so adorable that they practically made me squeal with delight. Soft, squishable, and available in a variety of colours, one of these ornaments would be the perfect gift for the cephalopod lover in your life. FuzziMutt Creations also has larger octopus plushies for sale, and they are equally darling!

I’m loving this tote bag! The simple heart pays homage to the jolly bearded man we all love—Santa. Yule spread cheer wherever you go with this cute bag. Here’s an idea for you—double up on your gift-giving prowess when you use this tote as a gift bag. If you still need to get some Christmas cards, check out this Santa card that matches the tote.

“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!”

I love this quote from Buddy in Elf, which is one of my favorite Christmas movies. This image is an instant digital download, not a physical print, so you can print it from home or enlarge and print it at a photo processing center. Since you’ll get this instantly, you won’t have to worry about delivery fees or transit time!

Covered in charming hearts, these Christmas crackers will be a fun addition to your holiday celebration. Not only is the recycled paper screen printed by hand, but the crackers themselves are handmade as well. Each Christmas cracker contains a festive badge, a candy cane, a joke, and a Christmas party hat. Also available are multi-coloured chevron, gold & white chevron, and metallic chevron Christmas crackers.
