Gifts Galore

Friday, November 30th, 2012


I have one last item to share with all of you as I wrap up Tiny Prints week on Sweet Peas & Stilettos. Today’s Tiny Prints Deal of the Day is actually going to last all weekend long. You will be able to enjoy 35% OFF all photo gifts all day today, Saturday and Sunday. So yes, you can go out tonight and enjoy your Friday and then curl up on the couch over the weekend and start designing cool gifts with your favorite pictures.

I spend so much time out on the Tiny Prints website and I have to tell you that I was totally surprised to see that they are now caring canvas photos. They are so popular now and are an easy way to make any photograph really unique. They make your average snapshot look super fancy when you hang them on your walls. And if you have a professional photographer snap some great shots and you get to keep the digital picture – well then you are really in luck. I have seen some photographers charge hundreds and hundreds of dollars for these canvas prints and now Tiny Prints will make them for you. Love that! Just think about the cute pair of shoes you can buy with all of the money you save….

tiny prints weekend sale

So go ahead and kick off December with some great holiday deals. As most of you know, they’ve got photo gifts, holiday cards, invites and more.

Retro Techy Gifts

Thursday, November 29th, 2012


Despite this cold winter weather, I think it is time to pull on a pair of blue and yellow Dolphin shorts, a gold head band, and some Mork & Mindy rainbow suspenders, blast the Zanadu album and start shopping.  Who doesn’t love some good old retro fun and funky styles. When you have a name on your holiday shopping list that totally stumps you, I always think humor goes a long way. Luckily, having a little fun doesn’t cost much either, especially is you pop on over to Mod Cloth. Who doesn’t need some floppy disk ‘nice save’ coasters?


And this cassette tape right here – it is actually a cutting board. Totally practical! I have been having a blast cracking myself up at all of the fabulous gift ideas at Mod Cloth. Their gift guides are organized so you can shop by person, by color, by vintage era and styles. For that nephew who is off to college, the kids’ babysitter, and even for your brother or best friend – there is a little something for everyone.

Of course they have awesome retro inspired clothes and shoes for both men and women too.

Make a Mug

Thursday, November 29th, 2012


It is the 4th day of Tiny Prints week at Sweet Peas & Stilettos and today’s steal is…..(insert drum roll)…..a huge 35% OFF personalized mugs. I can remember way back (what seems like a million years ago) when you could first put a photo on a mug, and a plain canvas bag and a t-shirt. I thought it was so cool. Since then it has never crossed my mind to do it again. Maybe it is because I dream of the day that every mug on the shelf might actually match one day. But now that I have parents and in-laws who don’t want and need a whole lot (or anything for that matter) for Christmas, I have to tell you the photo mug with a cute picture of their grandson might just be the perfect little gift. My mom doesn’t drink coffee but I am sure she would love it on her desk to put pencils in. I was thinking of dressing up my son in his SF Giants gear and making a mug for my father-in-law. What grandpa isn’t going to love seeing his little slugger every morning while he sips his coffee and reads the Wall Street Journal?

And if you want to skip the photo, they have some really cute, modern patterns so you can make fabulous personalized mugs. Maybe I can finally giveaway all of the random mugs on the shelf and make myself a complete matching set!

To save 35% OFF today, just use promo code: cyber1129. The sale ends tonight 11/2912 and 11:59PST.

tiny prints personalized stamps

Tiny Prints week at Sweet Peas & Stilettos continues with another great daily steal of a deal. All day today you can save 35% OFF Stamps & Embossers. I know you probably get a bunch of those free stickers in the mail with your address printed on them. I am not sure why so many people send those?? Anyhow, those are fine to use on bills, but these custom ink stamps are great on letters and invitations. You can pick one up to use on your holiday cards and then continue to use it all year long. And you don’t just have to make address stamps…how about one with your initial that you can use in books or on notepaper? And there is something very historic and beautiful about embossing. I haven’t used an embosser in a million years, it might be kind of fun to actually have one for my family. Go take a look and see what you think for yourself. They are both certainly great personalized holiday gifts. Keep on saving and I’ll have another great Tiny Prints deal for you tomorrow!

Oh one more thing – the promo code to save on the stamps and embossers is: CYBER1128 and the deal expires tonight. Wednesday, 11/28/12, at 11:59 pm PST.

Personalized Notebooks

Monday, November 26th, 2012


Tiny Prints week on Sweet Peas & Stilettos continues with another fabulous daily deal. Today it is all about notebooks and they are 35% OFF all day today. Yes yes yes – I know we all have our iPhone and great online calendars and organizational tools, but I will be the first to admit that there is just something about paper, and pulling out a pen, and jotting down notes with real ink. These personalized notebooks from Tiny Prints are 5 x 8 inches so they should fit right into your tote bag. They also make great gifts for a wide variety of people. Here are a few ideas:

1) For children, you can create a book in their school colors and use a cute picture of your child with her best friends.

2) Grandma (or mom or your mother-in-law) would love a notebook with an adorable picture of her grandchildren.

3) Make notebooks for your girlfriends too. You don’t have to use a photo of people, maybe a picture of the beach, your favorite flowers, a bottle of wine, a cupcake, or your favorite pair of shoes.

4) And don’t forget to make a notebook for yourself!!

The 35% OFF sale ends tonight at midnight PST.
