No one makes a more classier Gift Guide than our friends at InsideHook and this year their Father’s Day Guide exceeds all expectations. I’m especially found of the handsome, leather Moleskin notebook covers from Inkleaf to protect a Father’s written word! Speaking of leather…

Local J.W. Hulme created a handsome, leather, savvy Dad’s Day List for all kinds of needs. My favorite is the new, gently distressed Brown Leather Envelope for letters, a pen, important receipts or tickets to the ball game!

Thanks to the ever tasteful Tomboy Style, I found this Father’s Day Gift Guide filled with multiple ideas from Huckberry for the “outdoorsman, sportsman or dashing dude” in your life!

Terrain created a Dad’s List for the Nature Lover/Entertainer kind-of-a Father — But also included this thoughtful I Love You Dad Journal with room to share memorable moments.

For the foodie, head to Food52 for their highly crafted list of ideas for Dad. This Abner Universal Tool Box would be perfect for storing stationery, pens and written letters to treasure.

The Walker Art Center lists some awesome pieces of Dad Gear! I’m especially keen of the Scottish made Alwych all-weather notebook, unchanged since the 1930’s. To this day it’s recommended in the UK by police, delivery drivers, gardeners, mountaineers, golfers and explorers!

Of course, no gift is complete without a Father’s Day Card. Make sure to check out the variety of Dad cards at Brown Ink Paper Goods before June 21st arrives. If I’ve learned anything over the years, a Father needs to be reminded (in written words) of his importance to you. Cheers!

Blossoms in Every Direction

As I prep for the National Stationery Show next weekend (follow me on Instagram to shadow my trip!) a few topics have been blossoming. Here’s a little highlight of my favorites these days…

Already a huge fan of the gorgeous illustrations from Rifle Paper Co., this interview with Anna Bond, aka The Queen of Cards, found on the USPS Life in Letters blog is not to be missed.

Fountain Greetings, the company that does the writing for you, now sells beautiful gifts with each card they write. Although it might be a bit of a cheat, at least someone is writing a card!

As I have mentioned in past posts, written recipe cards and cookbooks hold a special place in my heart. This beautifully written article in the NY Times exemplifies the importance we may find with each card, doodle or smudge, connecting us with a moment in time.

Now that National Handwriting month and the Write_On campaign has come to an end, don’t stop writing. Local letter girl, Gina Sekelsky, has found a way to inspire us to keep up the writing with this Love Your Letters Challenge!
