From our home to yours, Merry Christmas! It's been a wonderful holiday season here at Little Sprout Creations, filled with new designs, new friends, new clients, and new partnerships. We're excited for all that the new year will bring, including a new division of Little Sprout, coming your way in early 2012!!
I grew up in Chicago, so this sunny California Christmas thing is brand new (and awesome) to me. Sort of strange to be singing Christmas songs and wrapping presents when it's 65 degrees outside! But whether I believe it or not, the holidays are here, and we have a few great homemade gift ideas to share! Here's a roundup of some Little Sprout gift ideas, featured on some of our very favorite party blogs.
1. All-Natural Cleaners and Candle Kit

One of the best perks of being a minted designer (other than the coveted "Mintie" title) is the 'Sending Good Cheer' Minted Holiday Card Swap. The walls of my studio are now happily dressed in photos of my new designer friends, inspiring designs, and some fabulous typography eye candy! And obviously included, some Little Sprout designs from this year's holiday collection!
Gift cards are the perfect addition to any small business - use them for promotions, give to clients over the holidays as a thank you gift, or sell to be used as gifts by your clients for friends and family.
These 5.5x4.25" cards are printed on heavyweight, 120lb cardstock, and will be customized with your company logo, fonts, colors, and gift card amount choices. Prices start at $20 for a set of 20 cards.
