It might just be me, but I get a thrill out of receiving a handwritten note in the mail especially in this day and age of texting. With today’s technology-obsessed world it’s easy to overlook the art of letter writing but I think everyone should have at least one set of personalized stationery to write a casual note, a thank you, or to have on hand to accompany a hostess gift or such. Besides having your own stash of cards, giving personalized stationery is one of my favorite gifts to give to a newly married couple and did you know paper is the traditional gift to give on a first wedding anniversary? So whether you’re on the look out for something new and fun for yourself, or need to get a gift for a loved one, do the world a favor and give the gift of stationery!
