(Pinterest Contest) Gifts + Pinning = #UPSHappy #NotABox

“This is a sponsored post with UPS and the Social Media Chicks. All opinions are my own.”

What do you like about this time of year? Is it the time you get to spend with family eating and reliving memories? Is it time off work, (as I raise my hand!)? Is it shopping for family and friends? When I shop for friends and family, I try to put a lot into the gift. I don’t necessarily mean spending tons of money, but a lot of thought behind it. I try to imagine their reaction when they open my gift. I want them to love it and think of me when they use it. Which brings me to creative shopping. I like Pinterest!

Do you use Pinterest? Isn’t it the most creative space? It just makes you want a more beautiful world. I could look at those pretty pictures for hours which gave me the idea of gift shopping! If I can pin for fun, I can pin for real! Besides my immediate family (hubby & children), the majority of our family lives out of our state. If you are like me, your number 1 priority is making sure those gifts get to them safe and quick! UPS knows that your gifts aren’t just boxes but emotional connections that matter. They understand that this time of year, it’s all about family, fun and giving. Worrying about shipping should be the last concern, so they work extra hard to get your package to your family in one piece. Perfect! Now let’s shop!
