May Happy Mail Idea: Birthday Fun

May just so happens to be my birthday month and I couldn’t resist bringing all of you into the celebration! This month’s happy mail idea will bring a big smile to anyone lucky enough to have it sent to them, birthday or not.

The Card

The Lily & Val team just released this hand-drawn birthday card a few weeks ago. Please take a moment to notice the little French macarons on the right-hand side. *heart eyes* We loved this particular design so much, it is also in print form (without the birthday reference).

The Candle

Name one person who doesn’t enjoy a good candle. Just one. I’ll bet you can’t! They’re just so simply hygge no matter the season. Sending a candle for someone’s birthday draws a fun parallel – if you can’t be there to see them blow out birthday cake candles, you can send a lasting one.

We’ve had an ongoing admiration for Candelles candles and decided to partner up with a collaboration! This macaron-themed soy wonder is my personal favorite. Though it is only available for a limited time, all of Candelles candles are heavenly-scented and a common fixture in our Flagship Store. Check them out!
