The Perfect Meaningful Christmas Gift: give the gift of TIME or TRAVEL

At Christmastime, we’re always looking for meaningful gifts for our spouse and kids. Sure, clothes, toys, games, and movies are great, but we LOVE the idea of giving experiences and memories instead of things. After all, memories last forever; things don’t.

The problem is, it’s pretty hard to wrap memories and experiences… and we wanted to be able to have something tangible to slip into their stockings or cover in cute Christmas wrapping paper. SO we commissioned Kayley, the super talented {and super sweet} designer behind Ollie And Lulu, to create some custom gift tickets and ticket holders for us. If you haven’t checked out her pretty prints already, you really need to. Her shop is full of darling designs, so it’s no surprise that we fell in love with what she created for us.

The Gift of Time and Travel

Just wait until you see these beautiful photos our Diva Chrissy, who also just happens to be the beautiful and talented photographer behind Christine Naomi Photography, shot of them…

  1. Hi is there a way to get the pdf images smaller? I’m trying to make a mini size but they’re printing out too big

    1. Yes! You would just need to adjust your print settings before printing. You could try printing them out at 50% to make them smaller. Hope that helps.

  2. Help! I’m using the vacation printable, but what should I write for “Adventurer?” i have my daughter’s name under “Passenger.”

    1. Oh good question! Under “Adventurer” you could write the name(s) of anyone else that is going on the vacation with your daughter. Hope that helps!
