When FIRST For Women magazine first approached us as a candidate to be in their November issue, we were thrilled beyond belief, but when we heard the article is about women owned businesses who make money during the holidays we KNEW we had to be a part of this feature.

Spreading Christmas cheer is something we do all year but the holidays are a pretty big deal around Christmas Crate HQ!  Our founder Kelli Girsch always makes the holidays a special treat not only for the elves but friends and family alike! You can swing by HQ anytime and grab a cuppa Rudolph hot cocoa or some warm apple pie drizzled pecans.

The story is true.... Kelli grew up in a home with a year round Christmas room. Complete with faux crackling fireplace, trees and lights strung merrily around the room (even in summer).  Growing up in a jolly house such as this clearly led the path to holiday success for Kelli with My Christmas Crate subscription services and our newest subscription "Collectable Ornament Club" for those of you who adore keepsake and collectable ornaments. Why wouldn't you have a seasonally festive delivered to your door (Valentines Day, Easter, July 4th and more)!

FIRST For Women was a joy to work with! They sent their photography team, assistants and makeup artist out to us here in California for the 4 hour long shoot. It was a great day with lots of laughs, retakes and of course a lil' Christmas cheer!
