holiday gift guide

Make sure you check back for the huge holiday giveaway!  Items from this guide that will be given away: Butcher Box, Hulu, Squishy Box and StoryWorth.

The Dream Dinners ShareCrate is a care package that allows customers to ship easy, homemade and affordable frozen meals to friends and family members experiencing a life moment. Each meal is made with wholesome ingredients, and is assembled and packaged to be either cooked from frozen or fully prepared in less than 30 minutes.  There are two sizes of the crate to choose from, depending on how many guests you are serving.  I can say, from the recent birth of my son, this would have been super meaningful, since I couldn’t drive for a while!  The assurance of not having to go to the grocery store or worry if you have all the ingredients… so worth it!


StoryWorth is Ah-maz-ing, and I’m kind of sad I just found out about them!  Read this: Each week, we email our customers a question about their life. All they have to do is reply with a story, either by email or by phone. We save their stories and share them with their family members.  …your story is then printed, and I can’t love this enough!  (*Save 20% when you order a gift here and enter to win a StoryWorth subscription here!)
