Order Holiday Photo Cards 

The folks at Minted have made ordering  Holiday Cards not only easy, but irresistible.  If there is one thing you do this Holiday season, order cards that will blow your loved ones and friends away.  You don’t even have to have mastered photography skills to make a card pop.  Did you know you can get the best portraits by going outside at dusk or dawn in natural light?  I have narrowed down my three favorite Minted holiday cards, a crisp clean design, a pop of color design that will surely stand out among any crowd of cards and the mini book design that will allow me to add multiple pictures.  Weigh in on your fave in the comments.

Donate Old Toys

It’s time to make room for the new.  Pack up all of the toys that are still in great condition, but your children have outgrown and pass them on to a local shelter, Goodwill or a non-profit in your community that is in need of toys.

Craft a Wreath

Get crafty and make your own holiday door wreath.  Grab a bare wreath, glue gun, ornaments, feathers, burlap and have some fun adding personality to your door.

Matching PJ’s

This is a yearly tradition of buying everyone flannel pajamas and having a weekly family night.  Once a week we all take turns deciding how we will spend our evening.  Family movie, family game, decorating the Christmas tree and completely disconnecting from the outside world.  No computers and no cell phones allowed.

Pay It Forward

Pay It Forward with a kind gesture. No gesture is too small when done selflessly.  A few ideas to leave you with today.

  • Take a moment to randomly buy the person behind you their coffee.
  • At the grocery store give your spot in line to someone with small children.
  • Give blood.
  • Tip generously to a car hop.
  • Take a dozen donuts with you to your next visit for the staff at a Doctor or Veterinarian office.
