In Other Words… Stationery, Travel, and All Else that Matters
The first thing I think about during Birthdays, Christmas, Housewarmings, Graduations, Weddings and other various Celebrations is the PARTY. Then I think about PRESENTS.
I am not bashful about accepting presents. Two years ago my boyfriend planned a Boozy Birthday Brunch Bash for me. I was being the ultimate Birthday Brat [another “B” word would probably work here as well] and forcefully requested for him to include a note at the bottom of the invitation stating that my guests were welcome to bring presents. Talk about rude… Birthday Brat alter-ego took over. My boyfriend tried to set me straight, but the Birthday Brat was in full effect.
I will say that the one thing that I enjoy more than receiving presents is finding the PERFECT present to give friends and loved ones. Call me selfish, but I love when my present a HIT, or when the recipient of one of my gifts lets others know how amazing the gift was. Friends will rarely receive a gift card from me (a few instances are acceptable). I try to give friends presents that I know that they will not only use but appreciate. The ultimate gift giving compliment is seeing the present being worn/used/served/hung.
With this being said here are a few PERFECT PRESENT ideas:
My last tip today – Always say ‘Thank You’ when you receive a gift. Below are some thank you notes that I have made. These orders came from amazing moms that wanted to have a stack of ‘Thank You’ cards handy for when their kids receive gifts.
Mustaches. I had an order from a classy mom for ‘Thank You’ Cards. This mom did not want anything that is too kiddy looking for her two boys, and the mustache theme was perfect. Not too kiddy, but still very fun. This print was so popular that another mother wanted the same for her boys! Both orders are shown below.
Nautical Theme. It seems like all the mothers are wanting ‘Thank You’ cards from me have boys. This nautical theme was also not too kiddy, but fun for boys. This print turned out AWESOME. It would look great on personal stationery as well OR invitations to a nautical themed party.
Remember…‘Thank You’ cards can also be used to thank people for attending an event you host, donating to a cause that is near and dear to you, buying a product you sell, or just being a supportive friend! Do not be an ungrateful hag – be thankful!
