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!

  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!!

  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
