This post has been sponsored by Special Day Crates, but like always, all opinions and thoughts are my own.
Gift giving for some come natural, but for me it is hard. Maybe I over think the process. Maybe I just really dislike spending my free time, which I have little of (thanks motherhood), standing in a store looking for the perfect gift.
They've done the guess work for us. They have artfully crafted crates filled with handmade and local products. The process is simple. You can either chose one of their already made gift sets or you can create your very own.
If you choose to customize your own crate the process is easy.
First, choose your crate size.
Second, fill the crate with fun goodies from their shop. Don't worry about being overwhelmed with choices. Special Day Crates have spent their time choosing quality items over quantity for you to choose from.
Special Day Crates created a crate for me and it truly was customized to what this Kentucky girl loves: Bourbon.
The crate was filled with coasters, chipotle & lime peanuts, gourmet popcorn, a cocktail recipe book, drinking vinegar and a recipe for a Saskatoon Old Fashion. All in a handmade and painted gift crate. Adorable and so thoughtful.
