Olive Box monthly subscription boxes: no olives, but still pretty cool.

Recently we featured 10 of our favorite subscription box gift boxes, and as the market gets increasingly saturated, we have to work harder at paring down the good ones for you. (Sorry, I don’t think you need to pay $35 a month for $9 worth of face cream samples.) So it’s nice when a trusted shop we love jumps into the game, like Pink Olive. I’ve long admired this local NYC shop, which is so beautifully curated with lovely cards, gifts, and announcements, and they’ve just added an Olive Box card box subscription. -Don’t miss a limited time discount for Cool...

Valentine’s Day cards and gifts for people who don’t take Valentine’s Day too seriously

As much as I love funny Christmas cards and sarcastic Mother’s Day cards, I have to admit I have a thing for beautiful, artful Valentine’s Day cards — although yeah, I like funny Valentine’s Day cards too. So much to my delight, I found an artist on Etsy who delivers on both fronts. Look at this beautiful Valentine’s Day card from Emily McDowell Draws on Etsy. Then look closer…and suddenly I love it even more. That’s kind of the spirit of the whole shop — beautiful, feminine design with a whole lot of edge. The same goes for the...

Three card draw: always have the perfect stationery on hand, stamped and ready to go

As I sit here feeling guilty how very far behind I am on sending thank you notes for gifts, I come across this little bit of genius from Hello, Lucky!, one of our favorite sites for funky letterpress cards and birth announcements. The monthly card subscription is such a fun alternative to box sets, if you always want to be sure to have greeting cards that are original and cool on hand. For $4 a card, you’ll get three of their wonderful designs a month, keeping you covered for all different seasons and occasions. Even sweeter, each one comes...

Hallmark rewards you for sending the cards you’d send anyway. Hey, thanks!

– Don’t miss a $500 giveaway we put together just for Cool Mom Picks readers! – As big proponents of sending cards (and saving the ones we receive ourselves, for all of eternity), we’re pretty excited to see just how many beautifully designed, modern cards are being offered by our partner Hallmark these days. Because let’s be honest, we’re often the ones in the local drugstore days before Christmas, stocking up for all those last minute invitations and visitors. And we are picky. As you well know.  No, we didn’t design this but we want to hire whomever did.  ...

This Mixtape Stamp Activity Kit is even cooler than the mixtapes of our youth

My kids complain because we never use wrapping paper at Christmas. We’ve been using the same reusable fabric for all our gifts since they were born, but I think I’ve found a little something from CMP Fave Yellow Owl Workshop that might make me reconsider. The Mixtape Stamp Activity Kit is begging for presents to be wrapped in brown craft paper. Wrap ’em up, skip the ribbons, and decorate them with one of these awesome natural rubber stamps and the included blue ink pad. Adorable. Plus it’s just so darn cute to imagine filling in the “to” and “from”...

We were really surprised ourselves to see what the site has become, and think it will be a great, affordable resource for our readers this year. We discovered they have millions (literally) of...

The coolest temporary tattoos are now the coolest greeting cards

I have been in love with the indie artist-designed Tattly tattoos since we first featured them two years ago. There’s hardly a Cool Mom Picks writer who isn’t. And while they add so many fun designs so frequently (there’s a unicorn now!) that this would become the Tattly blog if we covered every single one, now there is some cool new news worth shouting about.   The new Tattly greeting cards just launched yesterday and I am thrilled. Right in time for the holidays, there are five gorgeously letterpressed designs, each featuring a card-appropriate typographic tattoo design, like Today’s the Day, Awesome, or...
