Etsy Holiday Essentials


Oh Deer tag from RainCityPrints; Confetti from GenWoo; Cookies from TheCookieShopToronto; Card from SkippingFox; Mug from ProseAndFawns

There’s something about the holidays that makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. I love the fairy lights, the food, and of course, the happiness and warmth that’s synonymous with the holidays. Now that we’re knee deep into the season, I’ve partnered with Etsy to share with you some of my essentials for the holidays.

In my books, nothing says ‘I care’ more than a card. Some of my favourites are witty ones that don’t take the holidays too seriously.


I chose this one because I loved the illustration.


Of course, the holidays are incomplete without various treats. I have a soft spot for sugar cookies, and these ones were the best I’ve had in a while; not to mention that they’re absolutely adorable!


My philosophy has always been less is more, something which I totally apply to gift wrapping as well. I added these cute Oh Deer gift tags to an otherwise simple wrap job – I just used craft paper which I had lying around the house.


Etsy Shops: TopperAndTwine; RainCityPrints; InkAndPaperDesign; WrinkleAndCrease

These were some of the other gift tags I absolutely loved. How cute is the North Pole Checklist?


Is it really the holidays without hot chocolate? And what is hot chocolate without a great mug to drink out of?


Last but not least, confetti! I don’t generally buy ornaments, I prefer confetti because I can use it all year round.

    Absolutely love the contrast between the humor in my “Oh Deer” tags and your feminine style. The way you used my tags is exactly how I wrap my presents and exactly as I envisioned them being used when I designed them. Thank you!

    These are beautiful! I love that packaging, simple and elegant and gorgeous! You’ve given me a lot of ideas for my own Christmas wrapping this year!

    Haha, I’m still laughing over that “lit” card – how perfect is that? The holidays make me feel warm and fuzzy too. It’s the best kind of feeling really and I love all the lights. The sugar cookies are literally just the icing on top!

    These are such beautiful photos and I love all your Etsy finds!
    Your gift wrapping is so beautiful and I love those ‘oh deer’ gift tags. The cookies look so delicious, as does the hot chocolate (although I would probably add some whipped cream!)
    Thanks for sharing these
