The holidays are such an enchanting time of year. The anticipation, the excitement, and the joy make the holiday season so worth the wait. This year I started my holiday plans a lot sooner so I don’t have too many of those last minute must-dos. But, inevitably we always forget something. For me, it’s getting some cheerful Christmas cards and taking the time to catch up with family and friends that live at a distance. I found some adorable Christmas cards from Peter Pauper and a few other items that were on my list. They have something for everyone.
Panoramic Holiday Cards
Peter Pauper has a stunning selection of holiday greeting cards that range from small laser cards to large ornate panoramic Christmas cards. This year I opted to send out the Winter Forest Friends Panoramic greeting cards. The animals are adorable and the winter scene is peaceful. Plus there are touches of glitter sprinkled on the card which gives it a magical essence. The inside has a warm and sentimental message that wish the receivers peace and joy throughout the year. Being panoramic, the cards are quite a bit larger and measure 3-5/8 inches by 9-1/4 inches. Each set comes with 20 cards and 21 envelopes. They’re also a better quality and printed on premium coated heavyweight card stock. You can choose from seven different panoramic scenes, I just happen to enjoy the animals.
Holiday Mini Books
The Holiday Mini Books are perfect as stocking stuffers or a special gift for your teacher, mailman, neighbor or newspaper kid. The books may only be 3-1/4 inches wide x 4 inches high, but they are filled with 80 pages of endearing images and delightful quotes that brighten the holiday season. Sticking with my animal theme, I chose A Warm and Fuzzy Christmas mini book.
Each book has a beautiful dust jacket with an embossed title and a ribbon bookmark with a whimsical 24K gold-plated charm on the end. The charms are different for each book; my book has a snowflake charm. There are nine different books to choose from, but you can collect them all at only $5.95 each.
Merry Christmas Scratch and Sketch
The Merry Christmas Scratch and Sketch is a wire-ringed activity book for those aspiring Picasso’s in your family. It includes with a wooden stylus and 20 each of scratch-offs, illustrated, and sketch pages. The wooden stylus can be used for drawing on black-coated paper to expose a rainbow of glittering colors beneath. The book opens with some holiday pop-outs that kids can use to decorate and trace around to create festive artwork. They’ll have fun creating snowflakes, wreaths, Santa’s Sleigh, Nutcrackers and some much more. Recommended for kids ages 5 and up.
