Great Gift Ideas for Holiday 2011

The season of gift giving seems to arrive earlier and earlier each year. If you are among those of us trying to simplify our gifts in an effort to free up more time to enjoy our holiday festivities the following was written with you in mind. No matter who is on your gift giving list this year be it a parent, child, teen, teacher, friend, beautician or spouse the American Stationery website has something designed to delight the receiver and add a personal thoughtful touch to everyone lucky enough to make your list.
 
Personalized stationery is a timeless gift for everyone regardless of their style or age. If you have a conservative or business oriented gift to purchase, American Stationery’s large selection of hand bordered correspondence cards, set off with lined envelopes, should be perfect. You can choose from the ever popular Navy, Hunter or Wine bordered cards for the executive on your list, or for those more suited to a less traditional shade, consider one of the newer fresh border hues in Peach, Periwinkle or Gray. These cards are available in quantities of 25 or 50, so the budget conscious can mix and match to fit their price range. When these cards are paired off with a complementing lined envelope, the package is not only personal but elegant. American Stationery offers a wide array of solid lined envelopes as well as a stunning Black or Red Acanthus, Soft Rose, Colorful Iris and French Blue Flourish to name a few. Whatever border color or quantity you choose, be sure to browse the lined envelope options before completing your gift. You may also opt to personalize the envelope flap as well. This is completed in rich raised ink, and makes a much stronger presentation than a label or written return address.
 
For the teacher, friend or co-worker on your list American Stationery offers a large selection of memo pads. These are available in different sizes, quantities and presentations so it shouldn’t be difficult to match one of them with your recipient. Some of the more popular are the Fashion Memos. These are available in eleven different designs, personalized in your choice of typestyle then inserted in an acrylic holder and polished off with a luscious grosgrain bow. Another popular selection is the Executive Desktop Memo Set. This 600 pad set contains three different sizes of memo pads all personalized and showcased in an acrylic holder etched with your name. These would be a welcome addition to any desktop or home office. A new addition this year to the American Stationery memo collection is the classic Embossed Memos. These have your embossed personalization topped by an attractive embossed design. They really take memo pads to the next level, and are inserted in an acrylic holder and tied with a delicate grosgrain bow. Perfect for home, office, school or anywhere.
 
If there are any children on your list it is never too soon to teach them the art of letter writing. One suggestion would be the simple, but fun, combination of Critter Notes and Seals. This American Stationery exclusive is offered with a choice of twelve different appealing animal icons ranging from a cute kitten to a whimsical inch worm. These notes are offered in Blue, Brown, Green, Hot Pink, Purple or Red ink and coordinate nicely with matching round seals for completing the envelope. Another popular suggestion would be the wooden puzzle stools or name puzzles. These are not only attractive, but sturdy enough for the roughest of playmates. They are also fun addition when a child is learning to spell their name. In white or natural wood, they are a great addition to any play room.
 
For the tween or teen lucky enough to make your list there are a variety of new additions to the fall collection. The colorful Safari Notes, Correspondence Cards and Stickers are not only colorful, but trendy. The notes are offered in a Black and White Zebra pattern above the personalization with a Black and White dot pattern below. The Hot Pink personalization is accentuated with two tones of Lime Green circled artistically in Hot Pink. The Cheetah patterned note features a Pink and Brown Cheetah pattern above the personalization with a lively Pink striped pattern below. The personalization is presented in White ink and bordered by two tones of Hot Pink. The correspondence cards are a play on the same color scheme…the Cheetah cards sport the Pink and Brown Cheetah border with a Lime Green center, while the Zebra cards carry the Black and White Zebra border with a Hot Pink center. Either the notes or cards will look great when finished with the matching square stickers. If you are looking for something a little less on the “wild side” the new Glitter Notes will add a little “bling” to your gift this year. A simple fold note with your recipient’s first name printed in Gold glittering ink. The Gold Glitter ink will certainly make this note stand out in a crowd!
 
If you have a family or business on your list the Family Fun Notes, or Dynasty Notes should prove to be a crowd pleaser. The new Family Fun Notes feature the last name printed across a bold Blue or Green band. They are polished off with a repeating background that can be first names, a message or anything else that comes to mind. These notes may be finished off with coordinating return address labels for envelopes. The same concept is applied to the popular Dynasty Notes. They feature your name or business bolded in front of a repeating name or message pattern in rich raised ink. Whatever your preference these are two notes that will be appreciated by anyone receiving them.
 

So whether you have a family member, friend, business associate or child there are a lot of thoughtful gift options available from American Stationery. With their wide selection of notes, cards, labels and memos, your shopping could be a lot easier this year!
