This year marks eight Christmases together for Nick and I. Eight!!! You'd think that somewhere along the line we would have decided to send out holiday cards, but we never have before. Better late than never, right?
We teamed up with Staples for their #MoreThisHoliday campaign to show that ordering your holiday cards, envelopes, gifts, and more is as easy as hopping over to Staples.com! We used the Staples Copy & Print services to order our holiday cards, gift tags, and a couple special presents for my best gal pal! From start to finish, the process was a breeze. We just had to upload a few photos, hit order, and our creations were on their way!
Let's start with our cards. Staples has a HUGE selection of holiday card templates in a variety of sizes and colors. As soon as we spotted the 'Christmas Wonderment' card in their Signature collection, we knew it would be perfect match for our photo!
After you select your card template, you can customize your card with your photos and the text you want on the back or inside. We decided to leave the inside of our cards blank so that we can write personal messages to our friends and family. When the cards arrived in the mail, we were so pleased with how they turned out! The quality is fantastic and we're so excited to get these guys in the mail!
The photo we used on the front of our card was snapped by best friend, Bethany, when she visited from Alaska recently. We don't get to see each other very often, so as a thank you to her for visiting and for letting us use one of her beautiful photos on our card, I wanted to order her something special from Staples as well!
Bethany is a photographer, so we used a couple of her photos to create fun 10x14" puzzles (surprise, B!) Staples offers a ton of unique gift ideas that you can customize with a photo and/or text. In addition to the puzzles, we love the coasters, drinkware, and variety of wall art options they have. We didn't go as far as putting together the puzzles (that'll be Bethany's job!) but we both can't wait to see how they turn out!
Before we get the puzzles on their way to Alaska, we had to wrap them up! I think one of the most overlooked items when it comes to gift wrapping are the tags. Nick and I used the address label templates on Staples.com to create custom gift tags. Instead of filling in our address for the customizable text, we added "To" and "From" lines instead. They turned out great, right?
The holidays can be a stressful time of year. Between the general busyness of this season and the pressure to find the perfect gift, it's easy to lose sight of what's important. Nick and I can't wait to relax and spend time together this Christmas, but we also love giving meaningful gifts to our friends and family. Staples makes it so easy to create personal gifts at a great price.
