No snow? We’re still in the holiday spirit over here at brown ink headquarters. And with Hanukkah beginning this Saturday and Christmas three weeks away it’s time to send out the elves. We’ve found a few goodies to make even the most uber-electronic fanatic consider some items from the old-school.
First off, let’s start with the gifts that keep on giving.
And now, down to business….
These rad Colored Pencils from Target are ideal stocking stuffers for a friend with pizazz.
I love the way the Serrote Letterpress Notebook brings a bit of Portuguese culture into its cover.
Just crazy about these wheel printed cover notebooks from Postalco. Take a look at how they hand-create each one.
Welcome to the world of Thumbook, a tiny signature book that “connects people through pen & ink.” Novel idea. On one side you create a self-portrait incorporating your thumb print and on the other side write a thought or two. Take a look for yourself.
Keeping your words close to the heart, here’s a gift for a true journal lover.
Maxx & Unicorn notebooks are well-made and the ideal pocket size. The dark camo design might just be cool enough for the untraditional nephew.
Surprise your mum with her very own custom stamp from Pretty Chic.
This letterpress stationery set is perfect for the sailor or boy scout in the family.
You can never go wrong with personalized stationery, especially if you select a classic style from the designers at Missive. Treat yourself.
For the friend who can’t stop typing, surprise her with a new font from My Fonts. At least her emails will arrive in script!
Monogrammed necklaces appear to be the rage these days (don’t you love the 80’s revival?). Get into the groove with this calligraphy necklace from brevity. Your B/F/F/A/E will be so touched she might even loan you her rainbow t-shirt over holiday break.
Of course, if someone in your life needs a little hint as to what you might be wishing for this holiday season…
The elves at russell+hazel are so bright with ideas they came up with this Holiday Wish List to help those troubled buyers (p.s. 20% off all orders over $50 through Dec 6).
Here’s something to give a personal touch to your gifts – DIY chalkboard holiday gift tags. A perfect craft to accompany you in front of the fire while you dream of sugar plum fairies writing letters of well wishes (my sugar plum fairies write, not dance)….hmmm, I think that egg nog might be setting in! Ho-Ho-Ho.
