Question: What is the absolute cutest way to save during this Holiday season? ^_^

Answer

Sanrio's Hello Kitty and tokidoki's Cactus Pup Bastardino, Jr.

This ceramic coin bank is a decent size, measuring in at 6″H x 6.8″W x 6″D. Not only is this a functional piece, but it also looks lovely as home decor — especially if you already collect Hello Kitty coin banks and any of the Cactus Friends series, like the Cactus Pups and Cactus Kitties!

The colors are bright and beautiful — and the ceramic bank has a nice overall coat of shine all the way around.
