4 Merry Christmas Stickers – Value $0.80?
I love these festive stickers. The white-on-black design looks almost like writing on a chalkboard. I’ll probably use these to seal or even just dress up my envelopes. The value is based on similar stickers in their shop.
Merry and Joy Red on Ice Blue Gift Tags, 4 Pack – Value $4.95
How cute are these little gift tags? There are two “Merry” tags and two “Joy” tags, plus candy-cane-colored string to go with each one. I wouldn’t have thought to match the bright cherry red with the ice blue pattern, but it actually looks pretty cute and classically wintry.
Set of 3 Vintage Style Merry Christmas Holiday Postcards – Value $3.29
I really like the craft-paper vibe of these postcards. They’re not too fancy, but definitely unique. The design on the front reminds me of the kind of paper-cut shapes snipped out of a snowflake craft. I’ve never sent a holiday greeting postcard, but I’m very tempted thanks to this neat set!
Ho Ho Ho Santa Card – Value $4.00
This card looks like it would open up-and-down, but it actually opens from the side like a typical portrait-style card. I’m not a huge Santa fan (I know, I know… I’d just much rather see reindeer and snow!), but this is a cute, retro design that my family would love to get in the mail! Plus, the scarlet envelope just feels so festive! Imagine it decorated with one of those stickers!
Volkswagen Bug Holiday Card – Value $4.00
Now this card I love! The kitschy old car and graphic dotted garland are right up my alley. This card opens tent-style, and like all of these cards is blank inside. Plenty of room to catch far-flung friends and family up on all the cool subscriptions I’ve been exploring lately, haha!
Let It Snow Card – Value $5.00
This card is noticeably a little more sophisticated than the others. The design is literally pressed into the card so that the letters and snowflakes are recessed beautifully into the paper. There’s also a metallic silver envelope to make the greeting even more special. It’s the kind of pretty card I’d want to use a snazzy pen with, like a gold gel pen or something equally chic.
Wreath on Red Door Seasons Greetings Card – Value $4.00
I’ve got my own place, so the “From Our Home to Yours” message on this card isn’t quite the right fit for me, but I’ll have to see if any of my family or friends will want to use it! I like the stately door design and how the fun, handwriting-inspired font makes sure the card feels classy but not stuffy.
Verdict: I really loved this Idea Chíc Stationery Box! The items inside have an effortless elegance about them, so that I could easily see myself giving them to folks at the office, friends, neighbors, and beyond. They’re so versatile! The quality is nice, too. Everything is crisp and cleanly printed. This $19.95 box had $26.04 of products inside, so I feel like it’s well worth the price. I definitely encourage you to check out this lovely indie box!
