SanLori Invitations, Stationary and Gifts {Review & Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Shelley!}

With so much of our lives taking place digitally these days, it's hard to remember what things were like before the internet and email. Did we really just pick up the phone and call someone when we needed to get a hold of them? Or pull out a piece of paper and write them a letter when there was something to share?

However, even though I do the large majority of my correspondences on the computer, one aspect that I've always felt should be done traditionally is sending out invitation cards and thank you cards. E-vites and emails work for some things, but when it comes to a true party and really showing gratitude, I remain convinced that nothing beats the real deal.

Fortunately, there are still sites like SanLori that believe the same thing. Not only that, they offer a wide selection of styles, colors and formats of invitations, stationary and gifts to help you stay connected for any occasion.

With a goal of giving you a little inspiration while you enjoy each birthday, holiday or event that you might be celebrating, SanLori has it all. Their collection of stylish, versatile and, best of all, cheap invitations come in so many varieties and colors that they are sure to start your party off on the right foot. I'd be excited to be invited to either of these parties, wouldn't you?


But a bonus feature found at SanLori that I really like is the way that you are shown items that relate to the invitation that you've chosen, just in case you would like to continue your theme onto thank you cards or laser paper. After I went and had a good time at the Monkey Party, I'd be even more thrilled to know that the birthday boy or girl enjoyed my gift when I received a thank you that looked like one of these:


I especially love the idea of the Fill-In Invitations and Fill-In Thank You's as a way to really give kids a chance to be a part of the writing. It's never too early to learn how to send a great thank you card!

In fact, for Big Sister E's upcoming Super Hero birthday party, she is all set to help me fill in the invitations, thanks yous and even write an extra letter or two with the great set of Hello Hero Fiddle-de-de! products she received from SanLori.


The bright colors, eye-catching design and thick, sturdy quality of these items are perfect for a child's birthday and Big Sister E was excited about them right away. I have no doubt that pulling out the Hello Hero Thank You Cards after the party will be a great way to not only reminisce about the fun that we had but to talk about what it means to be generous and why we thank people.

But there doesn't always have to be a predetermined event or reason to send a letter, right? SanLori sent me a great set of their Royal Green Note Cards, personalized with my name, that are just right for when a sweet note would brighten someone's day. The classy design and the matte finish make these easy to pull out at a moment's notice to let my friends, family or even business contacts know that I appreciate them.


From their clean, high quality items to their large selection and low prices, SanLori has something for everyone. Adults and kids alike can easily keep in contact with a set of correspondence notes or show their gratitude with stylish thank you cards. With stationary and gift options for weddings, holidays, graduation, baby showers... the hardest part about shopping at SanLori is narrowing down the seemingly endless list of possibilities.

However, thanks to their generosity, one person will have to do just that to enjoy their utmost favorite selection, because...

One lucky person will win the item of their choice from SanLori!
ARV $24!
