We got ’em. A few more ideas to help cross off those last minute holiday gift needs this week….
I love a good pencil set. This eco-friendly Pencil Pouch & Recycled Newspaper Pencil Set from Social Goods Co includes 5 pencils which, once sharpened, reveal a beautiful marble-like pattern.
Did you hear? Pocket journals are the new, hip alternative to jot down notes these days, be it ideas to share later or to keep a secret. Your sidekick will rock the trend with this three journal set from imogene + willie. Throw in one of their pencil cases while you are at it!
Although the masses love to rely on their Smart Phone calendars to get them through the day, the old-school paper calendars were a hot item at this year’s National Stationery Show – and I think they make the perfect gift for teachers, mothers-in-law, or those who appreciate the written way!
My favorite new calendar of the year, from the talented Emily Johnson at Hartland Brooklyn, is the House Plant Calendar which doubles as a beautiful postcard set.
In my mind, there is no sweeter gift than a monogrammed stationery set. Head to Sugar Paper for a few gorgeous options to gift the writer in your life.
A bit more masculine, these elegant Everlane Shorthand Notecard Set from Paper Chase Press are double thick, uncoated charcoal grey with gold foil stamping. You can personalize your gift or choose from the quotation marks, parentheses, or asterisks sets.
So long shoe boxes! To the friend who hangs on to all their written mementos, this keepsake Letters and Notes Desktop Box from Three Potato Four gives the place of honor each letter deserves. Features an antique patina stain, hand screen painted lettering, and hinged lid with antiqued brass hardware. A stunner to hold your treasures.
Inspired by an original design from the Stockholm Postal Museum, Santa might be dropping off one of these blue beauties to our kids this year. A perfect destination for all those notes they write back and forth to one another (free Shipping from the MoMA store through today)!
For the historical enthusiast, the Letters of Note book is a thoughtful compilation of letters with human emotion and history on each page. Encountering more moments that are stark than soft, readers can swoop in and out of these fascinating correspondences in this lovely collection.
With the need for Thank You’s soon after the holidays, I’d be tickled to find this Lake Card Set from Egg Press Social Preparedness Kit collection under the tree tagged for me!
Lastly, maybe this year add a few natural greens to top off your gifts and you’re set…
