christmas cheer + great christmas exchange - what i gave.

this holiday season i decided to join two christmas gift exchanges within my blogging communities and absolutely adored putting together these boxes and shipping them off to texas and wisconsin.
one was a $20 box and the other was a $10. 
wrapping paper from a boutique i love in charlotte- paper skyscraper
here are some items i included:
-a book
-a wristlet
-green tea
-washi tape
-baby skin pore minimizer
-lip liner
-hair ties
-bottle brush trees
-a pickle ornament
-eos lip balm
*i decided to go with bold colors instead of all red/green to hopefully brighten a gray december day*

off to mail my holiday cheer boxes

i loved putting these together

and received the sweetest notes from erin in austin 

and cortney in wisconsin

so glad you both loved your box- made me so happy!

also, thank you so much to all of the ladies who hosted these exchanges: 
Hill Collection
i really appreciate all of your hard work!


  1. How cute! Those packages look absolutely adorable. You did such a great job!

    1. Awe- thank you so much, Lauren! I loved doing is… xo

  2. LOVE the wrapping paper and all of the great little goodies you sent :) How fun for those who received them. Your pickle ornament was such a genuine symbol of this great holiday.

    1. Thank you so much! It was so fun to do… and yes, so much to love about a pickle ornament! xo

  3. You gave such cute stuff. I love the white and gold polka dot tissue paper (?) and the pickle tradition. I've never heard of that tradition, but little ones would have so much fun with that! I hadn't heard about the Christmas cheer exchange this year, but it looks like so much fun. Maybe next year!

    1. Yes! You should sign up- you would love it! I know you would put together a cute little package ;)

  4. So fun finding this post- I loved my box so much! Thank you!!

    1. Awe- I am so glad!! Makes me so happy, Erin! Enjoy :)

  5. WOW, that's an amazing gift you gave!!! I'm secretly hoping i'm your secret person. I'd be so happy with those hot air balloon cards!

    And girl, I can't believe I forgot that you live in Charlotte! I was just there last weekend visiting Madison! We even went to paper skyscraper!!

    1. Aren't those cards amazing! :) I love them. And thank you so much… and you were here!!! So fun- I love that place- I always Christmas shop there! Please let me know if you come again… would LOVE to meet up!! xo
