Peppermint Cards. Just In Time For Holiday Gift Planning

Peppermint design Pic: Peppermint cards offer something new for the holidays

Etsy user althealoglia has a series of art cards available in a series entitled “Peppermint cards” that seem perfect for the coming holiday gift needs. Sure, candy canes have green in them (do they? it’s been a few months) and these are red and white, but I think they’d be a great change from the usual.

Some of the other art cards are a little wild for my tastes, but to each his own and I encourage you to check them out.

While you’re at it, why not finish things off with some accents from sweetmulberry

Non-Plush Ugly Doll Items

Uglydolls... dolls you can purchase for your kids and not feel like an idiot offer more than just plush.

I can’t refuse anything Uglydoll-related… ever since buying a box of Target dolls (the one-eyed octopus with chest hair) I’ve been a fan and evangelize them whenever I can. As such I was surprised to see the variety of Uglydoll merchandise out there today.

Some examples:

Got A Kid With A Passion For Insects?

Butterfly prints and cards offered by Lushbella on Etsy

I was one of those kids who spent hours outside looking at and catching insects. I still have that passion with me today, though more time is spent searching for ‘bug shows’ on HD than out in the fields on my belly looking for something new.

Etsy seller Lushbella has some beautiful postcards and archival quality prints of butterflies that would suit any kid or adult that fit the profile above. Have a look and tell me what you think.

Shameless Child Promotion

Rattle-N-Roll. Make sure your lovely little baby makes the best spot on the fridge. Front and center.

We’ve all received those boring new baby announcements in the mail, or Little Gary Graduated Public School alerts. If you’re going to take the time to address the envelopes and mail the things out you may as well be sure the recipients will remember them… at least for a minute or two before throwing them out.

Rattle-N-Roll promises to keep you child’s mug displayed prominently for many weeks to come as their announcement is given a cherished position on the recipient’s refrigerator.

Rock-N-Roll designs your child into a music poster-esque masterpiece for delivery to friends and relatives. Want an Obey Giant Propaganda theme? I suspect they could pull it off. Personally, I think I’d request something more along the lines of a birth announcement with a Chinese Communist propaganda theme.

Welcome to the real world baby.
