My Christmas Crate

Christmas friends, have you heard of the subscription box called Christmas Crate? I absolutely adore them, and no one is paying me to say that! I discovered them about a year ago and signed up to receive a monthly box of Christmas goodies. It feels like Christmas each and every time I open one! Here were my goodies from last month. Chocolate peppermint cake, Christmas morning candle (the scent is incredible,) the planner I showed you last week, and my Santa watch!!

I reached out to the founder of My Christmas Crate, Kelli Girsch (Head Elf) to ask her a few questions for Christmas Tree Lane readers!

Christmas Tree Lane: I love My Christmas Crate. Tell me about that aha! moment you had for this idea!

Kelli: I grew up in a home that celebrated Christmas nearly year round. We had a "Christmas room" up all year (with a tree and lights) that felt JUST like Christmas even though it was scorching hot in thesummer months. I had been running retail businesses including online subscription businesses and
retail websites and thought... what if there are others who enjoy Christmas as much as I do? What IF
people really enjoy receiving, smelling and baking Christmas items and goods when they cannot be
purchased in store.... DO people miss Christmas like I do? And so we tested the market and to my
surprise, My Christmas Crate took off right out of the gate.

CTL: Where do you find your products?

Kelli: Our elves source products from around the globe year round. We try to accommodate a wide
variety of tastes and likes which is why it's wonderful to be able connect with holiday brands who
enjoy the same holiday vision as we do!

CTL: What are you looking for from a vendor?

Kelli: A vendor that can accommodate our need for larger quantities, has complimentary packaging,
fresh ingredients and sells holiday merchandise year round.

CTL: What are your Christmas must-haves or must-dos?

Kelli: Christmas cookies with the kiddos, Charlie Brown Christmas, A Christmas Vacation (a must), hoppingin the car to look at Christmas lights, Making hot cocoa, Taking our "donation jar" that we collect spare change in all year just for the holiday season, vote on our favorite charity (last year it was the SPCA for shelter animals) and make our annual donation. My kids LOVE this tradition every year.

CTL: What is your favorite Christmas cookie?

Kelli: Anything with TONS of frosting HA! Usually a classic sugar cookie with homemade frosting in Christmas shapes. We made ugly sweater Christmas cookies last year and it was a blast!

CTL: What's your favorite way to spend a weekend in Nov/Dec?

Kelli: Our family watching Christmas movies next to the fire with a Christmas tree gleaming in the room! Such a cozy feeling....

CTL: Can you give us a sneak peak at what we might be getting in the future?

Kelli: Welp, our elf lips are usually sealed pretty tight but we do release (one) sneak peek per month on our social media for our fans. Next month (August) we will be featuring "Christmas pillow wraps" that turn ANY ordinary pillow into gorgeous room d├ęcor! When we saw them, we knew our fans would love them!

Kelli, you are absolutely right, we will love those pillow wraps! Thank you for taking time from your busy schedule to tell us a bit more about you and your business. Bringing such joy and happiness to others must be a fabulous feeling!
