This is one of those boxes that I signed up for late at night that I forgot I signed up for but was pleasantly surprised that Past Lauren made the decision to sign up for Pennie Post. There are a few different note card subscription services but I rationalized getting Pennie Post because I thought the cost was more reasonable. $11/mo for one month (3 cards), $33/3mo, etc. I signed up for the 3 month package because I wanted to make sure I used it. I am doing a lot of card writing these days in terms of wedding thank you notes but I would love to get into the habit of sending people real note cards on a regular basis. When someone sends me a card, it just totally brightens my day. I want to do that for other people!
So this is my first box that actually did not come in a box. Obviously, it came in a little envelope, shown below.
Inside is a little package that describes the contents and a link to buy additional cards if you liked them enough to get more!
When I saw this little Hot Dog card, I immediately thought of my uncle who has a little Dachshund named Boo that he just adores. Also, my uncle isn’t super technology savvy (he might not ever read this blog) so I thought he would appreciate this cute card. Also, it’s made out of wood, so it’s a bit heavier than a regular card. I think he will like that I thought of him!
This card is pretty cute but I can’t imagine giving it to anyone but Matt since it says “Hey, sweetie” so if he ever reads this blog, he might learn this is coming his way. I do like leaving him random notes and sending him letters sometimes (which is when I learn how infrequently he checks his mail) so I will leave this for him somewhere soon. It is kind of girly but I think it’s the thought that counts? We watch Project Runway together. It will be OK.
This next one I thought was just SO CUTE. I immediately thought of sending this to my mom because she has always sent me holiday cards for most of my life and I usually only send her cards for the big ones (birthday, Mother’s Day) so I thought she would be pleasantly surprised to receive this card from me in October. I just want to squeal looking at that girl dressed like candy corn. Precious.
The other envelopes in this box were blank but this one was extra cute and it even had a little bunny on it. My mom adores bunnies so it was totally meant to be. I hope she gets this card before this blog posts so it doesn’t ruin the surprise! (Hi, Mom! Thanks for reading!)
I’m rating this box a B+. I just love the idea of this box. You get a few cards and then based on what they are, you can figure out whose day you can brighten. When you buy any nice card at Target it’s $3/$4 so I think this box is a decent price but I wouldn’t say you are saving money by getting this. Mostly just breaking even for buying a few cards. But I like the service and the convenience so I’m excited to see what cards the next few months bring me! Maybe I will send them to one of you!
