The most thoughtful gifts are the ones with a personal touch, the ones that say, “I thought about you, and I know you’ll love this!” What’s more personal than personalized stationery? It’s a gift that only they can use, chosen with care and imprinted with their name or initials.
This Christmas season I decided to give personalized note cards to all the women in my family: sisters, sisters-in-law, mother and mother-in-law. In choosing the designs, I carefully considered each woman: her style, her personality, her needs – and found a design for each that matched her style perfectly. I then personalized them, some with a first name or initial, some with the family name, and some with both, depending on how I thought she’d use them. It was fun to do, and I can’t wait to hand them out at our Christmas gathering.All-occasion note card sets also make nice stocking stuffer ideas, because they are gifts everyone can use. We all wish we had a spare birthday card or get well card on hand for those occasions that take us by surprise. And a special stocking-stuffer-size gift for moms or kids are our little notelettes, for those times you want to leave a message for someone you love. Just like a handwritten note, the gift of stationery says, “I’m thinking about you.”
