Stationery & Accessories

With email, most people have cut back on handwritten notes. There is nothing more thoughtful than sending someone a personal "hello" or "thanks." To me, it means more which is why i'm always looking for pretty and unique stationery. It also makes a great "thinking of you" gift. Give the email a break and write a note-your family and friends will appreciate it.

I am a sucker for a pretty package which is what drew me to this boxed note set. The Cherry Blossom Design seems so peaceful to me. Inside the lovely box are 12 folded notecards with coordinating envelopes. Check out http://www.luxepaperie.com/ for more notecards and stationery. $17.00

How cute are these funny little notecards from http://www.provence-gifts.com/? The monograms on the front include: SUV-Stop Unnecessary Volunteering, JOY-Just Overindulge Yourself, SNOB-Sometimes Naughty, Occasionally Behaved, and more. Just $12.95 buys you a nice gift and a good laugh!

http://www.swoozies.com/ is one of my favorite stationery stores! Their Palm Tree Folded Notes are simple and pretty and can even be personalized. Find a store near you-you'll get hooked on this place! $14.95

Finally, pairing a notecard set with a nice pen always makes the perfect gift. These pens from http://www.colorfulimages.com/ are so cool. They are scented-yes, scented (just like back in elementary school!): Margarita, Pina Colada or Strawberry Dauquiri scented, $9.99 each. Match the pen to the stationery for a coordinated gift!
