Holiday Gift Guide: Mail Order Gifts

Mail order gifts have a special place in my heart. Here are our favorite websites to help with your holiday shopping AND shipping.

Mail order gifts have a special place in my heart. I’ve got family spread to the four corners of the country. People I love live in the wintry wilds of Michigan, the spacious burbs of Ohio, and the sunny corners of the Southwest.

A few years ago, I sent out of town family a fresh balsam wreath for their front door. Everyone was thrilled. Perfect for those people on your list that “have everything”.

Vermont Country Store

Worried that your Christmas list is being overrun by battery-operated gizmos? I love the simplicity and nostalgic feeling of seeing a Raggedy Ann doll or an old-fashioned Fisher Price camera toy. The Vermont Country Store has treats and toys to take you back to your childhood (or your grandparents!)

Magic Cabin

These people have cornered the market on fairies and knights. Dress ups, building blocks, finger puppets, wall stickers... I love the clean lines and bright colors of this Fairytale Village and my budding architects will enjoy the miniature mechanics of the Tree Fort Kit.

V Chocolates

Rachael gifted me my very first box of chocolate dipped caramels. Only send these chocolates to someone if you’re prepared for them to use words like “amazing” and “life-changing” when they tell people about your gift.
