Customized Wall Décor at a Discount

I can’t tell you how many years we lived in our home with blank walls. Decorating was not my thing. It’s not because I didn’t like wall décor. Quite the opposite, actually. I just didn’t like having to make decisions about what I wanted because I DIDN’T HAVE A CLUE! What I did know is that I liked to make it personal, as much as possible. With CanvasDiscount.com, you can make customized wall décor, make photo canvas prints, and so much more! All for an awesome discount!

Customized Wall Décor

When I was asked if I would like to partner with CanvasDiscount.com, it was an easy yes! My husband has a new office at work and the walls are bare. I knew immediately that I wanted to have a picture of the two of us printed for him to hang on the wall at work. The finished product turned out beautifully!

This beautiful picture from CanvasDiscount.com is part of their metal photo prints line. The prints in this line range in size from 8×8 all the way up to 20×20. The particular print above is 12×16 in size. Also, just so you know, the picture was taken with an iPhone! You don’t have to be a professional photographer with fancy cameras to get gorgeous photo canvas prints.

Photo Gifts, Photo Canvas Prints, and More!

If you’re like me, you like to give personalized gifts. When my kids were little, I used to make photo gifts for the grandparents. They got things like coffee mugs, photo blankets, etc. At CanvasDiscount.com you can make those things, plus personalized children’s books, a photo phone case, a photo puzzle, and more! Simply take your favorite pictures, upload, and order! My favorite item, and something I will be ordering soon, is the photo pillow! I totally want to have a pillow on my couch with a picture of my cat Roxie on it!

 

So…How’s the Quality?

Not only did my item ship very quickly, but it’s perfect! Like I said, I used an iPhone photo, which is totally fine. The nice thing about this site is that if your image won’t work for the size canvas print you are trying to order, they let you know! So no worrying on whether or not you are going to get a blurry canvas that you won’t want to hang on your wall! You really can’t go wrong with the metal photo prints! This may be going to my husband’s office, but I plan on ordering more in varying sizes for a truly customizable photo collage wall!

Save Even MORE Money!

Unique Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him

My husband and I don’t always celebrate Valentine’s Day. It’s not because we don’t love each other. Quite the opposite. With Christmas just happening and both our birthdays a week after Valentine’s Day, we just don’t find the need to buy gifts for that particular day. There are those times where we feel the need to truly show our husbands why we love them. Not the mushy, “I love you so much” gifts…no…instead we want to get those hilarious and unique Valentine’s Day gifts!

Finding the Right Gift

Gift buying can be stressful sometimes. I know when I am purchasing a gift for my husband, I tend to stress out. Not because I don’t necessarily know what to get him, but because typically, if he wants something, he buys it. I can’t tell you how many times, right before Christmas, I will tell him to stop buying things right now! One year I made him a DIY Date Night Jar. I kind of want to make another one with things that we are into now.

While chocolate is always a great gift for a man or a woman, it’s not that unique. Especially for Valentine’s Day. Think about all the things your significant other likes. When you want to get a unique Valentine’s Day gift, you want to take those specific likes and find things that they probably wouldn’t buy for themselves, but once they have it, they can’t imagine living without it!

Unique Valentine’s Day Gifts

How many times has your significant other come home from a long day of work and all they want is a nice cold beer? However, the case of beer they picked up at the store the night before is still sitting on the kitchen counter and never made it in the fridge. There goes that nice cold beer. Or does it? With these beer chiller sticks, they can have a nice cold beer whenever they would like!

The Best Homemade Valentines

I cannot believe it’s already February. As usual, the year is already flying by. For kids, Valentine’s day is super fun! From the moment they set foot in school, they get to make Valentines for their classmates. If you’re like me, by the time you get all the way through elementary school with the second child, you get a bit bored with the store bought Valentines. These homemade Valentines are super cute and easy to make! Your kids will love giving them to their classmates!

The Best Homemade Valentines

Your kids will love taking one of these homemade Valentines to school. Especially if it’s the bubble gum Valentine. They would be the hero of the classroom with that Valentine! The teachers may not be as appreciative, but oh well! It’s all about the kids, right?!? So take a look at the list of Valentines below. Show them to your kids (or just pick one you wouldn’t mind putting together) and have a fun, crafty day! And if you’re a little uneasy about the crafty part, take it from me, as someone that is NOT crafty at all, I could easily put any of these Valentines together!

Which Valentine Do You Like Best?

The list below is such a fun list! Everything to put the homemade Valentines together can be purchased in bulk at the store or Amazon. Because I love the idea of someone else doing the shopping for me (and not leaving the house), I will find you the best Amazon deals I can so you can have your supplies delivered right to your doorstep!

Choosing the Right Homemade Valentine

Aren’t these cute?!? All of these can be put together pretty quickly and even small children can help! Young children can help put the Hershey Kisses in little bags. While older children are quite capable of doing most of the crafting involved with these Valentines! One recommendation, for the bouncy ball Valentine or the gum ball Valentine, tie the bags tightly. Your child’s teacher will thank you!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Best Stocking Stuffers for Men

Since I spent half of October and most of November recovering from knee surgery, I feel like I am really behind on the Christmas shopping. My husband and I always fill stockings for each other. Well, let’s be honest, I buy half of my stocking and all of his! It’s much easier for me to just pick up the makeup I like from Ulta than send him there to get it! While I am driving and getting around much easier now after surgery, I still get tired easy, so I am doing a lot of shopping online. Here are some of the best stocking stuffers for men. Best part is, you can get them ALL online!

Every Man Loves the Funky Socks!

Every stocking in this house, always has socks in them. My husband is no different. He loves socks. This year he will have a pair of crazy dress socks he can wear to work, as well as socks he can wear with his cowboy boots. The funkier the socks, the better! Which is so funny to me. I read an article about how tacky it was for women to wear funky socks, yet it is totally OK for men to wear funky socks. Who knows!

Beard Accessories

This year, my husband has a beard. So I will be looking at different products and accessories to help maintain his beard. I am not sure how long he will have his beard, I will be looking for small bottles that he can take on the plane with him.

Jerky’s and Snacks!

Since my husband travels a lot, filling his stocking with some of his favorite snacks is always a good idea. I like to find things that you can’t typically find in your average grocery store. Things like jerky’s, snack mixes, hot sauces…they are all stocking stuffers for men winners for sure! I will be ordering the exotic jerky stick gift bag for sure!

That Unique, Can’t Live Without Stocking Stuffers

While the above stocking stuffers for men are great, I also like to add that unique item that he’s totally not expecting. Random things that are totally useful, but not something he would every think about buying for himself. Yet, when he gets in in his stocking, he is SOOOOO thankful for it!

Best Board Games for the Family

Our family is really into board games. Every year, on Christmas Eve, my kids get a pair of Christmas pajamas and a board game for us to play together. Every time we get together with my in-laws, we are always up until the wee hours of the night, playing games and laughing together. It’s so much fun! Board games make a great gift. These are our favorites!

Why Board Games?

Um…because they are the best! No seriously, they are! I believe, in a day and age where people are spending more time on their phones than actually speaking face to face with others, we need to find all the ways to get back to putting down the phone and being present. Playing games together does just that. Before we had kids, my husband and I used to host game nights with our friends. I would love to get back to that. It was a lot of fun. This holiday season (or anytime during the year!), give the gift of board games to your friends and family!

Playing games with your preschool aged children is so important! Not only is it fun for the kids, but it reinforces the importance in taking turns, being a good sport, and a lot of games have a learning aspect to it that supports education and the kids don’t even realize it because they are having so much fun! I can’t tell you how many matching games I played with my kids when they were little. That and the Let’s Go Fishin’ game were their favorites!

If there are any games you get from this entire post, you must pick up HEDBANZ and 5 Second Rule. The first time we played HEDBANZ, the kids laughed so hard during the entire game. We did too. Basically everyone has a card that they can’t see. You have to ask questions to guess what is on your card. It really is a fun game!

As the kids get older, the games get better and better! Three of our favorites above are Taboo, 5 Second Rule and Mexican Dominoes. On my list to purchase, as soon as I finish writing this post, is to pick up Relative Insanity. That game looks hysterical! If you click on it, there is a video on Amazon that shows a snippet of the game being played!

Right now is the time to buy board games. Not only are they on a super sale on Amazon, but you can get some games for around $5 each! Remember, these games make a great gift. Are you going to a holiday party and you want to get the host a gift? Why not pick a game or two, put it in a basket with a bottle of wine and a few snacks? That would be a fun and unique gift!
