THE HANDWRITTEN NOTE WRITER
My first gift guide of the Holiday season is for the handwritten note writer. Such individuals do still exist! In fact, now that electronic correspondence is so prevalent, the handwritten note has greater value than ever before. Today a personal letter is far more special, and its reception more noteworthy. I know this firsthand, as my best friend from high school and I have been pen pals for nearly ten years. Receiving her mail always makes my day!
GIFT DETAILS, 1 – 1o
1 – LAMBSKIN NOTEBOOK – Ideal for jotting down ideas before sitting down to write. Complimentary monogramming is included in the price of this petit red leather notebook, stamped with “Top Secret” lettering on the cover. Monogramming the recipient’s three gold-embossed initials at bottom right corner of the cover requires 4-6 weeks for customization, so make sure to order as soon as possible. The notebook’s unlined pages are pale blue Featherweight paper with metallic edges, and a grosgrain ribbon bookmark is attached.
2 – ADDRESS EMBOSSER – One pretty press creates an imprinted return address. Available in block or italic typestyle.
3 – DESK SET – Possibly the more sculptural letter opener and magnifying glass set, ever. This handmade 24-Karat gold-plated Adam and Eve inspired desk set brings a sense of ceremony to their day-to-day use.
4 – FRAMED QUOTATION – “More than kisses, letters mingle souls,” is the John Donne quotation that I chose for this custom art. Turn a favorite poem or any text into a one-of-a-kind foil-pressed or black ink print. Select the words and the font for a personalized piece with a handcrafted look and feel.
5 – KEEPSAKE BOX – A perfect place to keep a growing letter collection. This hinged clear lucite box keeps letters protected, yet within view, and lies flat when open.
6 – MEMORY JOURNAL – A thought-provoking question for each day of the year. This journal provides a space to hand-write memories and evolving answers, spanning five years.
7 – PENCIL CUP – An exquisite way to coral pens and pencils. This lapis blue hand-painted porcelain pencil cup with 24-karat gold detailing celebrates azure skies.
8 – LETTER TRAY – A place to rest stamps and outgoing notes. This hand-painted glass tray has a felt backing and a vintage-style envelope motif, sealed with a heart.
