Why is it the best feeling to find a package on your doorstep? Just a little taped up box present waiting to be opened. Maybe it was that new purse you finally talked yourself into buying, the adorable dress you found on Etsy for your daughter, or that pillow that finally went on sale. Even though I love good shopping finds, lately I have been intrigued by these special customized kits that have been cleverly created just for you. From crafts, to baking, to birthday gifts, sometimes it’s nice to get a little help. I want to share a variety of online businesses that have been designed to make your life a little easier.
I’ve been in a knitting rut to be honest and seem to be doing the same simple pattern over and over and over. Which is fine and dandy when you try different types of yarn and colors and want something easy. But I am finally ready for a change. If you have always been curious about knitting and ready to start try Loopy Mango. Seriously the cutest little online knitting spot. You can just purchase any of the premade darling sweaters, blankets, or beanies in an array of tempting colors and lush 100% merino wool yarn. But! If you are anxious to make your own buy one of their kits! Which is actually cheaper anyways. The kit will come with the all the yarn you need, the needles, pattern, and a nifty bag to hold it all in. It also labels each kit as “beginner, intermediate, or advanced.” I am SO excited to order the the “kitty hat” for me and my girls. Great christmas ideaaaas too!
You know when you find something new and inspiring and your first reaction is “why didn’t I think of that?” Well let me introduce you to the cookie kit. Actually featured on Shark Tank they include all the best organic and natural gourmet ingredients while incorporating healthy elements like flax seed, sparkling colored sugar made out of vegetable and fruit juices, and gluten free and whole wheat kit options. All of the ingredients are divided separately with the exact amount you need for the recipe while leaving it up to you to add more or less of the raisins, chocolate, or peanuts, yada yada. Which is great because it reaffirms the whole concept of home made cookies. They may be providing some of the best baking ingredients but you are still mixing, scooping, and baking from scratch. Brilliant! Did I mention it’s not just cookie kits? Check out there whole philosophy and core values here.
This site is so brilliant. First off they sell different things that range from jewelry, candles, totes, ornaments, and mugs all individually but what makes it genius is the customized gift boxes. Pick from any of their products and create a package for a birthday, wedding gift, housewarming, or Christmas. Choose any occasion. You do have to pick 4 items in addition to about $8 for the gift box and extra for shipping and tax so it can get pricey depending on how much you want to spend but it’s definitely worth a look.
Who doesn’t love discovering great Etsy finds? Sometimes Etsy can be overwhelming because there is so much to choose from, but then all of a sudden you come across something you weren’t looking for but have to have. This was one of those times. Oh Sew Bootiful sells beginner and intermediate embroidery hoop kits that include everything you need. Choose the design you like best and you will receive the kit to complete the project from start to finish. LOVE the affordable consistent price of $21.36 for each one and all the different patterns.
