It’s Time to Celebrate

I returned home Tuesday night after attending the National Stationery Show and I am completely enthused from all I encountered. Thrilled for the new designers who will soon join the Brown Ink Paper Goods boutique as well as fresh work from our current lines. It’s all so good, especially to see the world of handwriting and paper goods alive and well. Before I share my favorites from the show, let’s move on to a few pressing matters at hand; gifts for the graduate or teacher in your life. A few ideas, starting with the graduate…

The Personalized Handwriting Necklace is a lovely gift for the young adult who may need a bit of family (mother, father, grandmother) close to her heart as she heads off to college.

For the craftsman in the family, send a student off with this do-it-yourself wooden base desk lamp, thanks to the minds behind Poppy Talk. It’s handsome, functional and handmade with love. Also ideal size for the dorm room desk (Make sure to include of few of these below!).

Of course, no Graduate should leave for college without a collection of fine pens or pencils….

 The Delfonic pen and pencil selection is perfect for both College Freshmen and Freshwomen who’d like to appear both smart and hip even if they are writing vs. typing.

A writing journal is a beautiful gift for a Graduate. They might be even more likely to download the numerous changes in their new lives’ with this proper and stylish journal by their side.

Leather Journals made by Twigg’s Bindery are simply stunning, a keeper for lifetime. Or a larger, Fabric Journal can hold concert stubs, airline tickets and other memorabilia (as a side note, Jonna Twigg just won Best New Product Award for this Fabric Journal at the Stationery Show!).

There may be a greater chance you’ll hear a few snippets of your child’s life if you send them off with stationery they will actually enjoy using like this Road Trip set from Scouts Honor Co.

And include a dozen stamps while you’re at it (what 18 year-old doesn’t love a little Jimi Hendrix?).

For the glorious Teachers….

For the teacher who appreciates a handwritten letter, the recently released Letters of Note would be a beautiful summer read, filled with extraordinary letters which will fill their soul.

 For Teachers with more freedom in the Summer, a Journal can be a needed creative outlet.

Gabrielle from Design Mom came up with these beautiful DIY painted pencil boxes. A great project with a child over the weekend. Add in a few pencils and note from their student, and you’ll find yourself a happy, full-hearted Teacher.

You could even include a lovely stationery set which fits the personality of the Teacher…

Gifts are always lovely but, from what I’ve been told, a written letter from a student is the best gift a Teacher could ask for on any day.

Of course, a few handfuls of these sparkles from The Great Lakes Goods never hurts! Let’s CELEBRATE these accomplished individuals, the Graduates and Teachers who have made us proud.

    Harmony

    Stop the season. Summer is halfway over and I have yet to remind readers my love and the importance of camp letters! As I shared last year, aside from talent shows and singing in harmony around the campfire (you think I’m joking?), nothing brought more happiness than receiving a written letter at camp. A simple reminder that someone back home is thinking of you can bring joy to any camper, especially in today’s digital world.

    Packing pre-addressed, pre-stamped envelopes with colorful notecards and unique stamps is probably all you need. However, if you supply a child with camp-themed stationery it might be just the trick to get them to share a wee bit more of their adventures while away from home.

    Anne Marie from Scout’s Honor Co created a summer theme to her recently released stationery. I adore the Summer Camp card set as well as the Bait + Trail set, both perfect for camp letters.

    Personalize your stationery with these Campfire & Tent themed cards.

    For the enthusiastic letter writer, this letterpressed camp stationery from Fawnsberg is perfect for young people to share all the details of their activities.

    My Camp Adventure Stationery seals the deal with a Summer Camp 2013 sticker!

     Sideshow Press is entirely Camp-themed (can’t wait to be selling some of their fabulous goods this fall!). A camper would go crazy for the Canoe Pencil Case filled with Message Pencils.

    When packing their duffle don’t forget to throw this Sunshine Journal (filled with awesome craft paper), Paddle Postcards, and a Patch card with a message sharing how proud you are of your child venturing “away” camp. They can wear their badge of honor when camp is finished!

    Why shouldn’t learning to write letters be among one of the independence-building experiences your child brings home this year? Who knows, they might even come home with their first pen pal.
