One of my favorite ways to celebrate the end of a great year and all the memories that made is so special is to create and send holiday cards to our closest friends and family. So together with Mixbook, we've made it fun and easy to send some cheer to your loved ones this season with our Oh Joy! for Mixbook holiday cards...

We created four colorful and festive card templates—Holiday Dots, Cheers, Holiday Stripes, and Holiday Confetti Frame—for you to upload your family photos into! Most have a fun foil options to add a dash of metallic magic to your cards, and you can even get creative and overlay our hand-drawn stickers on top of your photos! To make the whole process even easier, we also created matching address labels and "To/From" stickers to place on presents.

Oh Joy Gift Guide: Gifts for Teachers!


Oh Joy! Gift Guide: 10 Gifts for Teachers!

Teachers are the best! This time of year, I often get asked what's a good gift to give teachers? They spend all day teaching our kids how to be smart and be good people, so nothing really seems like enough. But, I've put together a few of my favorite things to give ranging from $9-60. Now, keep in mind, some schools collect cash gifts to distribute, so you may already have it covered. And, I know that gift cards to a local coffee shop or Target are also popular teacher gifts. But, if you are looking for a physical, tangible gift here are some of my favorites in a range of price points and keeping in mind various ages of teachers, too!

1. Otherland candle ($36) for relaxing outside of the classroom, 2. Enevu Cube Light for the science teacher who has everything, 03. ($30)Odd Pear socks ($22) to add fun to every day, 4.
