Shutterfly: One Stop Christmas Shop

It' hard to believe that Carl and I have been in California for almost one year! Last year we spent Christmas with our family in North Carolina before heading west to start our California adventure. Unfortunately, we won't be able to make it home for the holiday this year but at least we can send a little holiday cheer back home thanks to Shutterfly's Christmas Photo Cards.

In our first year here we've been fortunate to experience just some of what California has to offer. We've taken some awesome photo's  and it'll be hard to narrow the selection down. Thankfully, Shutterfly has a HUGE selection of Holiday Cards to choose from. I'm  leaning towards this Holly on Top Holiday 5x7 Folded Card which means I'll be able to add up to 7 pictures and have plenty of room to write a holiday greeting inside!
Now that I've picked my Christmas Cards it's time to move onto Christmas Gifts! That's right, at Shutterfly you can also create beautiful Photo Gifts like Calenders and Mugs

I'm going to buy my dad one of these custom Wall Calendars. Not only can you customize it with up to 9 pictures per month but you can also add special dates through out the calendar with pictures and text! How cool is that! And right now Shutterfly is offering an amazing deal when you buy one ($21.99) you get the 2nd Calendar of the same size at 50% off! I'm  going to get one for myself too that way I can keep track of every one's birthday's and anniversary's this year! Can you say "New Years Resolution". 

I personally like the Year of Quotes Calendar design. Which style design do you like? 

I know I should be shopping for other people, but I just can't help browsing for myself too. Since Carl and I don't drink wine we don't have the need for "His &  Hers" champagne flutes or wine glasses. However, we both enjoy hot beverages on a daily basis like coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. I'm thinking of creating a set of "His & Hers" mugs from Shutterfly. 

I like this design the best  because you can  add up to 5 photo's and 2 captions! I'm thinking I'll put a few of my favorite wedding photo's on  it! And again, when you buy one Photo Mug you get the 2nd mug at 50% off! 

I also have to admit that I will be sending my Christmas Cards and Wedding Thank You Notes out at the same time. I am SUPER late getting the Thank You notes out. Thankfully, with the help of Shutterfly's selection of Cards & Stationary I should be able to find the perfect Thank You Cards too. 

Shutterfly is also hosting a special deal just for bloggers! If you're a blogger, head over to Shutteryfly and sign up  to receive 50 Free Holiday Cards and tell them Cortney at Living & Loving in California sent you!

Let the Holiday Cheer begin!


  1. It so easy to go crazy when you start looking at all the photo memory stuff to make...I like those mugs that you picked out...especially with the yellow color wrap because it really makes the photos pop.

  2. That's a great post Cortney. Looks like you can get some lovely things.


I love hearing from you, please leave a comment.
