The first step to hosting a stellar baby shower is choosing a stellar baby shower theme. It can be really fun (and easy) to start to get ahead of yourself with planning all the little details for the big day — the tiny bottle drinks and the colorful banners.

We’ve compiled some of the internet’s (thanks to the delightful wide world of Pinterest) most exciting baby shower themes with ideas that you can actually use. Continue reading

Being a brand new parent is hard work. Even if you’re not totally brand new to the whole being a new parent thing, having tiny new humans around is no easy task — regardless if it’s your first or third go around. Actually, we’re still unsure how new parents manage their day to day to do lists without completely loosing it. Here at Postable we’re all about making the task of sending snail mail as easy as sending an email. And while being a brand new parent is crazy hard work, sending out Birth Announcements, Baby Shower Thank You Cards and your general kid-related snail mail doesn’t have to be. This got us to thinking — there must be other sources out there to help new parents take some of the hard work off their shoulders. Life hacks are the bees knees and life hacks for kids are even better.
Whether you’ve just celebrated your high school or college graduation, the time to step up your adulting game is now. Before we get too far in depth of introducing you to the whole idea of how to adult, we thought it might make sense to start you off with something obvious. Your graduation thank you notes. Yes, they are really necessary. In fact, thank you notes in general are pretty much an essential part of being a full grown adult, but we’ll get to that later. The good news, however, is that you’re living in the fabulous age of Postable greeting cards. The days of having to buy out-dated greeting cards at a card store, buying stamps at the post office and having to stuff and write your envelopes are over. Adulting doesn’t have to be so hard. At least not the part of adulting that requires you to show your appreciation. You can now mail your graduation thank you cards without ever leaving your computer.
To top off the convenience factor, Postable grad thank you cards are also rather bewitching. Check out these 6 graduation thank you cards — all designed by Postable’s talented artists — to write and send all of your cards in no time. Adulting will never again be this easy.

Being a brand new parent is hard work. Sleeping becomes a priceless commodity, daily tasks are no longer looked after and a whole bunch of other things that nobody tells you about. You’ll probably find yourself having to schedule in time for things that typically just happened — eating, for example. Needless to say, mailing out a set of cards to introduce your newest family member — aka the star of your show — takes a back seat to things like showering. At the same time, you want your family and friends to meet the new little human. Birth announcements don’t have to take up all of your very precious time. Being a new parent is hard work. No need to make it even harder. Although we haven’t found any hacks to changing diapers, we do have a pretty neat hack to sending your birth announcements.
