last minute gifts: Mixbook



Christmas is exactly 8 days away, can you believe it? I am totally that person that tries to get my Christmas shopping done early, I try my hardest! But it never fails that I always forget someone or I think I have more than I do for someone else. Needless to say I am usually scrambling for last minute gift ideas! That being said, I also usually tend to gravitate towards something photo related. They are personal, emotional, and honestly I just love photos so they never disappoint! 


This year I have teamed up with Mixbook to bring you some last minute gift ideas! They have so many different options if you are looking for canvas art, wall galleries, cards, prints, and my favorite calendars! In our house we have at least 3 or 4 calendars around. Trying to keep track of important dates, school schedules, and both our work schedules that are always changing we need calendars in almost every room! Calendars are also a great gift if you have family does not live close to you. My mom, also known as Gigi in this house lives in Canada so she misses out on lots of our day to day lives. We are always trying to FaceTime and talk on the phone but she still misses out. Since I got married and Sofia became her (step) grandchild it has gotten even harder for my mom to be away. So this year we made her a calendar with all her childrens, grandchildrens, and fur grandchildrens birthdays and important dates! Plus a ton of photos so she can feel as if we are with her always!

It is not too late to order your calendar, or any photo gift from Mixbook! We still have 8 days remember so just select express shipping at check out. I can't wait to see my mom's face when she opens her calendar (I hope she is not reading this post today lol) she is absolutely going to love it!

*Thank you to Mixbook for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.
