Christmas in July: Plan Your Holiday Photo Cards Now

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Every year I say I’m going to plan ahead and NOT wait til the last minute to order my winter holiday cards, but things come up…I get busy and forget. I’m sure you can relate!

This year, our newest blog sponsor, Basic Invite, is here to help us all do better, with a Christmas in July reminder: Summer is a great time to plan out and capture your family and pet photos for your Christmas cards and holiday cards.

They are also offering a 30% OFF discount to our readers so read on to learn more!

You might be thinking. “How can I do holiday photos when all my Christmas decorations are packed away?!?”

It’s easier than you think. All you need is a few simple props, like some Santa hats and mini trees from Michaels or the Dollar Store. Walgreens still has Red Noses for sale at many locations (check by the registers).

Any string of fairy lights will help set the scene, or take the photos you love and add some sparkly touches with filters in your favorite photo app or software.

Look around for items you already have that might work. This is a GREAT excuse to get some matching pajamas for your family and pets!

Your Christmas cards don’t even have to have a holiday theme. Summertime is beach, pool and vacation time, so remember to take a few nice shots with the family (and pets, of course) so that you can share your memories with friends and family when you send out your cards this winter. Any great family photos YOU love will make the perfect images for your cards.

There are tons of themes and templates to choose from, so it’s almost a no-brainer once you have your favorite digital photos picked out!

Basic Invite is one of the few card websites with almost unlimited color options and instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. This is what really sets them apart from almost any other online stationery company.

And if you have a business, or are in charge of ordering business Christmas cards this year, now is the time to get it done. You can get really creative with cards that fit the personality and tone of your business!

Whether you are ordering cards and invites for business or family, you want to make sure your cards look their very best, right?

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows you the ability to order a printed custom sample of your actual card or invitation so you can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before you ever have to place your final order.

You can also choose from over 40 different envelope colors. That will really help your cards stand out!

And to make life really easy, use their address capturing service letting you share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request friends and family’s addresses which can be stored and used for recipient address printing at no cost on all card orders.

Hopefully all this has motivated you to get started on Christmas and holiday cards, invites and more, now rather than waiting til the last minute.

Have you tried getting groceries delivered yet? There are more and more stores participating in this growing trends, and plenty of reasons why it’s becoming so popular.

Not only can you save time and hassle by ordering online and letting someone bring your items to you, but you can also save money. By shopping through a service like Instacart, you can compare prices and plan meals from your home computer or through an easy app right on your phone. I look at what’s on sale and then plan my meal prep around it. I also compare between different stores to see who has the best price on more expensive items I need to restock.

If you haven’t tried it yet, we’ve got a coupon for $10 OFF your first order.

Stores participating will vary by location, but in our area, we’ve got Petco, The Fresh Market, Costco, Aldi and more. Prices are usually the same as in-store and you can see all the available sale prices, coupons and offers as you shop online. I find it a real time and money saver.

Most orders will be delivered in 1-2 hours, but you can always choose your own delivery time to coordinate with your schedule. Your shopper will message you through the app if any item on your list is out of stock or if they need to ask your preference about an item.

Before you order, always check the Coupons and Free Delivery Offers at the top of the store page. You can save extra money by getting Free Delivery (usually $3.99-$8.99) when you add certain items to your order. I often find items I was planning to order anyway or take the opportunity to try something new. Just remember to tip your shopper in the app when you order.

Pro Tip: You do NOT need a Costco membership to order from Costco through Instacart!

Here’s a look at what was in the May Super Chewer BarkBox along with the retail values of each item if purchased separately.

May Super Chewer BarkBox Dog Toys

Going Deep Madden Fish Dog Toy ($14 retail value) This football shaped dog toy is actually a glow in the dark sea creature! He’s super rough and tough, but still very cute! Here he is in the dark…

Treat Lock Hermit Crab Dog Toy ($14 retail value) We love treat dispensing and puzzle toys, and are super excited to add this one to our collection. It twists apart so that you can fit one of the lock treats inside (also included in this month’s box).

 

May Super Chewer BarkBox Dog Treats

Peanut Butter and Banana Tastes from the Deep Dog Treats ($8 retail value) Daisy loves banana and peanut butter so these were a HUGE hit! Made in the USA (like all BarkBox treats) and free from any of the bad stuff we avoid(wheat, corn, soy, etc).

Deep Clean Dental Chew for Dogs ($3 retail value) Dental chews are a great way to supplement your dog’s oral hygiene routine. This fun and tasty treat is made with a limited number of ingredients, all super wholesome. Check it out.

Jones Natural Chews Pork Dog Chew ($4 retail value) Meaty, chewy, oven-baked pork. Big enough to break in half to save some for later!

Super Chewer Treat Lock Treats ($10 retail value) These peanut flavored toys are designed to fit perfectly into this month’s treat toy, as well as a few other Super Chewer dog toys mentioned on the box…this is the second treat lock toy we’ve received so far and hope more will arrive in future boxes!

It’s worth mentioning again that every Super Chewer BarkBox includes free toy replacement and a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so you can feel completely confident that you and your dog will be totally happy with every item you receive.

Super Chewer Box Cost and Value

By our calculation, this month’s BarkBox Super Chewer edition had $53 worth of dog toys, treats and chews if you were to purchase them all separately. That’s makes a subscription a real bargain when you consider that plans starts as low as $29/month with free US shipping included.

And as a pet parent, you just can’t put a price on the fun and excitement that come with each month’s delivery of a new Super Chewer Box.
