2017 Holiday Gift Guide by ConfettiStyle

Have you heard the news…Christmas is coming!

To usher in the holiday season, I’m kicking off my holiday gift guide series with an item that is on the top of my gift giving list–Personalized Stationery.

Stationery makes a great gift anytime of the year but it’s one of my favorite gifts to give at Christmas.

I’ve reached that age where I want to give gifts that have lasting value and personalized stationery fits that bill.  One of my favorite companies for personalized stationery is WH Hostess.  I’ve rounded up my top picks from their amazing selection to help you with your holiday gift giving.

Shopping For Stationery | Chinoiserie Style

Hi friends.  I hope everyone had a great weekend and Easter.  It’s not secret that I love paper products and today I’m sharing one of my favorite paper companies with.

I love beautiful stationery and as a business owner personalized stationery is part of my branding when communicating with clients.

 I was on the hunt recently for new notecards and my search led me to WH Hostess Social Stationery.   WH Hostess sells paper goods including stationery, party decor, gift packaging and personalized gifts.  Their designs are fresh and modern and I love the variety of patterns and colors they offer. Chinoiserie inspired designs are one of my favorite and WH Hostess has a great selection of chinoiserie stationery.

NOTECARDS

 I prefer flat cards over folded and use them for general correspondence with clients and for quick notes to friends. A few of my favorite designs from WH Hostess include their greek key, stripe, bamboo and plaid designs.

Monogram Ginger Jar Flat Notecard {7 monogram colors available}

Striped Letters Personalized Flat Notecard {available in 4 colors}

Bamboo Monogram Personalized Flat Notecard {available in 6 colors}

GIFT TAGS

If you think gift tags are just for gift  giving, think again.  Personalized gift tags with your business logo and name can be used as a creative alternative to a business card.  I use them to tag fabric sample rings or other design samples.  You can also use personalized stickers in the same way.

Creative Gift Giving–Stationery Box

CS Stationery Suite7

If you’ve been reading the blog for a while or follow me on Instagram, you know I love beautiful stationery.  I’m a sucker for the boxed notecards at HomeGoods and I’ve been known to handcraft my own monogram notecards.

As a business owner and lifestyle blogger, I make it a practice to send cards and notes to all my design clients and to new friends that I meet through blogging.  I also love to give beautiful stationery as gifts.

Today I’m sharing a fun and stylish gift idea that’s  easy to pull together, Monogrammed Stationery Suite!

The first thing you’ll need to do to create this stationery set is to compile an assortment of notecards. The perfect stationery suite should include thank you cards, blank note cards, blank or decorative tags and maybe even some decorative or monogrammed stickers.

Here are the items I included in my set:

CS Stationery Suite2

DIY Monogram Notecard // Personalized Notepad // Monogram Stickers // Personalized Thank You Cards // Gift Tags (similar)

CS Stationery Suite6

CS Stationery Suite4

DIY Monogram Notecards // Personalized Notepad // Monogram Stickers // Personalized Thank You Cards // Gift Tags (similar)

tip: You may also want to include a pretty pen in the stationery suite so the gift recipient has everything they need to send notes.

Next, head to the store and pick up a small acrylic drawer unit.  I purchased this one from HomeGoods for less than $8 but I also love this one from the Container Store.

Acrylic Box

Once all the items are pulled together, arrange them in each drawer so all the cards and stickers can be seen.

CS Stationery Suite17

To personalize the top of the box, use these embroidered iron-on letters and simply glue them onto the top of the box.

tip:  the initials are white when you purchased them but you can easily use a Sharpie to change the color like I did.  I used this same technique when I made my DIY monogram straw hat.

One of my favorite online stores is Zazzle.  I discovered them a few years ago when I was looking for business cards.  Boy was I amazed at the enormous offering of card designs and how great the prices were.  Since then I’ve bought a variety of paper products from Zazzle including address labels and wrapping paper.

Most recently I ordered some monogram stickers so I could make my own monogram notecards.

Custom Stationery Caddy

DIY Stationery Caddy by ConfettiStyle5

I’ve been on a mission this year to send more hand-written notes.

When it comes time to sit down and jot at note to a friend, I go into my craft closet and pull out a card.

 Then I sort through my embellishments for something fun to add to the envelope.

After the note is written, I dig through my desk drawer for stamps.

The simple act of writing a  note become more of a process than a pleasure.

To help make the writing notes more enjoyable and to have all my supplies within reach, I decide to create simple desk-top Custom Stationery Caddy.

IMG_9591

 I headed to Michael’s to look for a box or container that I could retro-fit.  What I found was a perfect solution–a decorative washi tape holder!

 There were two compartments that can hold pens and markers, the removable bar holds washi tape I use to embellish envelopes and the bar also works as a divider to separate notecards.

The caddy also has a serrated bar to cut the washi tape.

A solid white box was not going to work for me so out came a sheet of  Wallternatives vinyl silver dots that I got at the Haven Conference. I placed the removable dots randomly around the container and in a flash I had a really cute stationery caddy.

When was the last time you surprised someone with a hand-written note?
