[Creepmas] Day 4 - Gifts That Are Creepy & Useful
I send out a lot of mail - zines, postcards, letters. I like decorating the envelopes with stickers and stamps. I recently bought a stag beetle stamp from UnderdogPress and am very impressed with the quality. There are plenty of cool stamps to choose from. Insects, planchettes, bats and skulls to decorate and inspire craft fun. Bonus most stamps are under $10 - making them perfect stocking stuffers.
Every year the boyfriend and I exchange calendars.So I am always looking out for new ones. I am a fan Megan Lynn Knot's cat paintings and when I saw her newest creation - a bat calendar with moon phases I was like wow!
Candles - yes more candles! These dark delights by BurkeHareCo are made from soy wax and are 100% vegan! In scents like Cemetery Gates and In Memorium your house can smell like a funeral home!
Do you know someone who just moved out into their own place? I think a perfect gift is a nice set of fluffy bath towels. Luxurious bath towels are often the last thing we think about buying ourselves but once we do - man do they feel nice right?
People used to write letters and send cards - before the internet sucked out our souls. I love sending letters still and unique stationary is a treasured item in my office! These cards are by Mab Graves ,one of my favorite artists that combines the creepy and cute perfectly. Bonus: cards are easy to buy frames for to turn into art work!
