A Happy Thanksgiving to those of you who celebrate the holiday. And to all of you who will be traveling to be with friends and family for the big day, I wish you a safe trip. Regular posts will resume on Monday!

Charles Chocolates + Hello! Lucky Letterpress

Charles Chocolates + Hello! Lucky Letterpress Cards

Chocolate is good. Letterpress is good. Put them together, and you have a match made in heaven. The people at Charles Chocolates were oh so smart when they saw the connection and created the option of having a Hello! Lucky letterpress card sent with your chocolate order. The packaging on their chocolate bars — with flavors like ginger, candied hazelnut, and mocha java — is pure eye candy, too!

As of now, it doesn’t look like they have holiday cards, but they have birthday, thank you, and get well options.

Whimsy Press Oh So Festive Gift Wrap

Whimsy Press has so many ultra cool, colorful, sophisticated gift wrap designs for the holidays. I always love checking out the “wrapped” pictures — so inspirational:

I’m also digging Whimsy’s Any Which Way Holiday Card Sets. Each set also includes stickers (yay!) with a variety of festive messaging that can be applied to the cards or envelopes. 28 stickers and 14 cards are $20.00 per set.
