Cartoonized pictures, anyone?

Pictures with a twist!

Last week's post about the picture gifts was a nice creative ideas but how about if someone draws the pictures in a cartoonish style?  Nowadays, with sites like, it's easy to find someone who will draw you or your picture in a cartoon way!  For example--time for some shameless self-promotion!--I have a gig set up on fiverr where I will draw whatever picture you send me (you can let me know how you'd like it drawn) and I will send it back.  See more about the gig here.

Here's an example of something you could get:

It's just a suggestion of course (wink, wink!).  I've also drawn my thank you notes for my friends and they love it so I'm sure your loved ones will love when you send them a picture recalling a memory with a cartoonish twist!

Pictures -> Memories -> Forever

Picture Gifts, the new Craze!

I have fallen in love with picture gifts!  From photo books, photo cups, photo puzzles, photo water bottles, I have had such a great experience with giving photo gifts to the people I love.

My personal favorite site is  I've tried other sites but this one was the best!  Not only is the quality amazing, but once you're signed up, you can get lots and lots of offers in the email!  I've gotten offers from another 101 free prints to a free photo book to a free $20 to spend on whatever I want!

Here's a list of things I've gotten that my loved ones (and myself) loved:

  • 12"x 18" Dry Erase Decal board
  • So many Thank You, Birthday, Thinking of You cards!
  • Mouse Pad
  • 600 ml Water Bottle
  • 10"x 14" Puzzle (252 pieces)
  • 8" x 8" Photo books
  • 12 oz plastic cup
  • Stationary
  • 8.5" x 11" Notebooks
  • Yearly calendars
  • 3" x 5" magnet
  • Notepad
  • Address Labels

The best thing about the offers you could get is that some of them can be used on top of each other!  For example, I was able to get 5 items for $54.93, saving $98.54.  This included the already lowered prices with a 20% coupon on top, free shipping on orders of $39+, free card, and $10 off a photo book.  

Photo gifts are a craze nowadays because of the different designs, different photos and memories one can use to personalize each gift to their recipients.  If you want to try it out, I'd recommend signing up today to get 101 free prints too:!

Did You Know That...?

"1) You're an awesome person.
2) You always help me when I need you.
3) You never let me down.
4) You make me happy.
5) You are...."

A month ago, when I was down, I received a note from a close friend on flowery stationary stating reasons why I am amazing and how he is glad to have me as friend. To be man enough to go out there and even buy the stationary makes him an awesome friend to have. Thank you very much! I hope you all have a friend you really care about and can make their day like he did mine! Go out there and DO IT!!!

Birthday Gift Ideas!

Yesterday was my friend Calvin's birthday. A group of us made a list of what he likes and came up these items:

Children's Adhesive Bandages, Disney Princess, Assorted Sizes 20 each,

A Picture of a Rainbow-Vomiting Unicorn,

And a Black Forest Cake!

Goes to show you that even in college, creative gift ideas exist everywhere!

Fortune Cookie For You!

"The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate." ~Oprah Winfrey

Other than the fact that the quote is a chiasmus and Oprah came up with it, I recently received this advice from a fortune cookie at the dining hall. Along with another fortune that told me "Don't panic!" and such, I suddenly wondered what it'd be like to receive a huge fortune cookie with a personalized fortune inside.

From personalized fortune cookies to pictures on oreo cookies, this site has got it all! It's fun and entertaining to watch someone's expression when they receive these gifts because, quite frankly, who'd think to receive a huge fortune cookie for a present?
