I love the idea of stocking stuffers. They may not be as meaningful and expensive as your main gift, but they still bring little bits of cheer to the christmas morning gift-unwrapping ritual. Or if you’re short on the gift budget this year, these 5 printable stocking stuffers won’t cost you any money (except maybe paper and printer ink), and they are a lot of fun!
1. Reindeer Colouring Cards
This would be perfect for the little ones. It can also be an activity to do after your christmas feast!
2. Instagram Photo Gift Box
If your friend is an insta-addict, he/she is going to appreciate having their instagram photos printed and packaged in this cute instagram-inspired gift box. Printing instagram photos are easier than you think! You can also set a theme: wedding photos, he and she photos, pet photos, children photos, food photos, and many more.
3. Matryoshka Memory Game
They are so cheerful and fun, makes these matryoshka cards the perfect stocking stuffer!
4. Pocket Books
With three covers to print, all you need is some paper for the insert and stapler or just tie them up with twine to bind, just like what I did.
5. Retro Recipe Cards
For the cooks with a lot of secret recipes, they can finally write them down and have them as keepsake.
I like to get creative with my gift packaging, especially for christmas. Who wouldn’t love gift boxes that can be used as decorations afterwards? I have for you here three printable house boxes, and one of them is a christmas theme! Use them to wrap up stocking stuffers and candies, or simply hang them on your christmas tree! Download them after the jump, as well as folding and adhering points.
My favourite holiday is coming up soon, and I whip up a couple of halloween freebies for you!
Download the iphone wallpapers here and here. It is best to open these links straight from your mobile browser and save image. The image can be find in your camera roll and you can set your wallpaper from there.
You can also have these spooky (but very adorable) bats as gift tags. Download the gift tags at the end of this post.
If you are the type who gets anxious before travelling, here’s a tip for you: writing down your checklist helps. When you’ve got them written down, you spend less time worrying about forgetting something, and spend more time imagining all the fun you’ll be having in your trip.
On this printable Travel List, I’ve included in the checklist some of the most essential items for your trip: passport & visa (if you need one), currency or cash, tickets (might it be plane, train, bus tickets or car rental voucher), phone & tablet (hands up if you can’t life without them!), chargers (because your gadgets might as well be bricks without them), voltage converters (this goes hand in hand with chargers, unless you’re only travelling domestic), toothbrush (I don’t know about you, but I ALWAYS forget to bring my toothbrush. You might be able to find toothbrush in any convenience store, but FYI, “convenience store” in some smaller towns might not be too convenient), medications and of course your trusty ol’ camera. You can write down your own personal needs on the empty list on the right.
I have also included “Travel Priorities”. I know this sounds like something that your therapist might ask you, but it’s important to have list of priorities in everything you do, including travelling! When you booked that air ticket to Bali 3 months ago, you wanted a relaxing and pampering holiday, spending your 5 days in Bali lazing by the beach, swimming in your villa’s pool, drinking cocktail and getting Balinese massage we all love. However, as soon as you stepped onto that “Ungodly island of God”, you went straight to Seminyak for a shopping spree, eating all those delicious (and fattening) Balinese food you’ve seen in food blogs, and spend the night partying and waking up the next day with massive hangover (somewhat based on true story, ahem). By day 5 you’re anything but relaxed and pampered. It’s good to have priorities so that you won’t end up missing out on experiences you wanted the most.
The other two pages are for you to list down what you’d like to see and do, and what you’d like to eat and buy.
This travel list is the same size as regular boarding passes, therefore they will comfortably fit into your travel wallet. Here are the things that you need to assemble your travel list:
Adhere the sides where it says “Adhesive here”, and paste the pages on top of each other. The top page should be the one with the illustration, and the bottom should be the checklist page.
Carefully score the dotted line underneath the Adhesive part, and fold them into three. At the end, the checklist page should be in front.
You can be as decorative and as creative as you like with your list! I decided to be more visual with mine, by adding stickers, colourful washi and doodles.
Have an enjoyable trip! (and don’t forget your Travel Priorities ;D )

Blogging is fun, but it could get a little overwhelming sometimes. Most of the time, blogging is not someone’s full time job (only a few lucky ones get to do that *sob*). So when you’re still balancing between blogging and doing your full time job, it helps to plan your blog posts in advance.
I have created for you a Printable Weekly Blog Planner. It’s a pretty straight forward planner where you put the date, posts that you’ve planned for each day of the week, and your to-do list (anyone you need to contact? any DIY you need to create? any products you need to photograph?). For each day when your post is up, you’ll also get a reminder to share it on three main social medias: facebook, twitter & pinterest.
With this blog planner, your blogging will be more organized and fun! I am also using it for my own blog too :)
