Don't judge a book by its cover

"Don't judge a book by its cover." I believe this quote when it comes to people. But, I don't believe this quote when it comes to books. I actually base most of my book choices off the cover. Especially when it comes to "pink scratchies." (For those of you who are not familiar, this is the official term for books like "Confessions of a Shopaholic, Diary of a Mad Bride, Something Borrowed, Something Blue." Basically, the best genre of books, aka chick lit.)

Anyway, what I am getting at is packaging is important. Actually, I LOVE packaging. (Another one of my many idiosyncracies.) I came across the stie My Mimi Pie yesterday and I loved all of their personalized packaging. They have some of the cutest stuff for a really good price! These are so awesome for parties and showers. Here are some of my favorites:

These little notepads are really cute and would be a great stocking stuffer. They would also be great as a favor for a shower, especially if you play a game where the guests have to write something down. I have one of these for my purse and they are great all year round!

Aren't these boxes of gum cute???? Only $1.65.
I like this for a spa party or bridal shower. These are personalized lip balms. These are my personal favorites. They are personalized favors for a baby shower that are ingredients for sugar cookies. And, they come with a mini-whisk!!!!

I also love these for winter. (These do not include the contents.) Aren't the labels too cute?
Tomorrow I will post a great resource for personalized labels.


  1. Hey Katie, I too love judging books by their cover!! I actually let out a little scream when I read "pink scratchies" because a book with a scratchy cover is one worth reading!! (At least I say so!) I tried to explain this to Luke, but God love him, the boy just didn't get it! All good chick lit comes with a good scratchy cover! Great minds must scratch alike!
