Oh, hi Christmas! You're one month away. I guess that means it's finally time to get my act together and get organized on our gifting this year.
Usually I keep a running list in the notes section in my phone throughout the year and when I come across an idea I like - jot that down! Come November...it makes things a lot easier and less stressful.
Luckily, this year I have two of the more difficult gifts all figured out, and it was so, so easy.
It was also the perfect opportunity to put to work all those family pictures we had taken months earlier. I mean...those couldn't just be for our Christmas card!
so now I ask, what do grandparents love second to their grandchildren?
Answer - PICTURES of their grandchildren. The more the merrier, right?
Well, how about 12?
I picked out 12 of my most favorite pictures from our fall family photo session and uploaded them to the Walmart Photo site and picked my favorite style of calendar. I went with the 8x11 black and white frame because these are gifts and I wasn't sure on which style would be most appreciated by the grandparents, but the site has TONS to choose from.
Then I just plugged our photos into the appropriate months - September was graced with a picture of my farmer and me since we have September birthdays, and October with our best gals because they are both October babies. Heaven forbid either grandparent forget these important months!
Once I completed my order, the calendar arrived super quickly. But better yet, if you order in-store or online, you can do same-day pickup. Walmart obviously makes it too easy for procrastinators...such as myself.
Even better? The calendar is on sale! it's currently on rollback until January 31st from $17.47 to $12. so if budget is the name of the game in your house (ahem...I need to practice this!) - you can't beat $12 with same-day pick-up! but if you really don't want to leave the comfort of your home (which is me because the nearest Walmart is 35 minutes away) Walmart is offering free shipping on photos and gifts through December 30, 2015. Thank you Walmart. Thank you for giving me every excuse to stay in my yoga pants and fluffy socks on these ridiculously chilly days.
If you're an overachiever and make it to one of their 3,500 Walmart Photo locations, you can pull photos right from your phone at their photo kiosk either via the Fujifilm Kiosk Photo Transfer App...or you can connect with a cable. Super snappy and easy.
What I'm saying is...happy holidays. I just helped you shop for a super cute, super fast, super inexpensive gift. (Or maybe you want to keep it for yourself? That's a definite option!)
