Finally the birds are beginning to chirp. With chirping birds we are reminded that spring is coming (even though many of us have thought it never would).  And with the onset of spring, we think of all the holidays to come and one of those is Mother’s day.   During this cold weather, it’s not hard to daydream about a warm breezy morning spent having brunch with my mother. As the holiday approaches keep in mind that American Stationery has the perfect gift for mom no matter what she’s into or what stage of life she’s in.    What about a little something for the guest bathroom that she just remodeled?

With your choice of ink color choices...Read More
When it is time to bring a new baby into the home, there are many things to think about. Mom is busy nesting. Dad is busy studying the insurance plan. What about big brother?

Not unlike a new mother, new fathers also deserve a special gift when their new baby is born. Sure, they do not go through the physical exhaustions and pains the mother goes through but, they certainly experience many changes in their life. It’s important to show them that they are not forgotten and that they also deserve a little something extra.

The hustle and bustle of Christmas and New Year’s is now over. But, just when you feel like you are getting back into the swing of things, you remember about Valentine’s Day. For Valentine’s Day we often think of many different things. The color pink, heart shaped paper valentines, cherubs, flowers and many more things. A little research suggests that flowers have been given on Valentine’s Day for several hundred years, whether to ward off evil spirits by surrounding the loved one in a lovely scent, to sending secret messages that are tied to each flower. For instance it is said that daisies indicate both beauty and purity while the red rose signifies love. It is said that whole bouquets would be sent in ancient times and would translate an entire message to the recipient with out a word written down. While, there is much debate on why flowers tend to be the most popular gift given on Valentine’s Day, there is no denying that it is so. Red roses have long been the traditional favorite but, in recent years with the advancement in shipping etc. couples are able to give and receive just about any flower no matter if...Read More
In today’s classrooms, teachers need all the extra help they can get. Classroom populations are at an all time high. Many classes even at quality rural schools have an excess of 25 children per one teacher in the classroom. We all know that the smaller the classroom size the more ideal it is for the educational process. It makes sense because of course we work better when there is less noise and distraction. Many classrooms request parents to come in and help. This help can range from volunteering for field trips, to helping organize crafts, and bringing in snacks. Volunteers and “class moms” are present in virtually every classroom. Unfortunately, a lot of the time teachers struggle to find these volunteers. But, once they have a few good ones of course they want to hang on to them. While, we know teachers are over worked and under paid it makes sense that they would want to thank their volunteers. This is incredibly kind of them because, we know it’s proper to purchase them gifts as a way to thank them for all the work they do but, they don’t have to purchase gifts for their volunteers. Not receiving material or monetary...Read More
With the holidays behind us the “season” of gift giving has come and gone for a while but that is not to say that we are done purchasing gifts. As there are many reasons to purchase gifts throughout the year. Many of us work in office settings and as such have several colleagues many of whom we work closely with on a daily basis. Some we come to develop a bond with; even at times a friendship and so we naturally feel compelled to buy them something for their birthday. But, once word gets round that you bought them a gift others may feel left out. So, while we would never encourage you to purchase a gift for every staff member’s birthday we will provide some tips for gifts for those colleagues whom you work closely with but, you aren’t necessarily “best friends”. Remember when you worked so closely with Jennifer on the new account? Remember how she never had problem bringing both of you a latte but, always forgot her pen?

Believe us, the dad or grand dad can prove just as hard to buy for as that picky teenager in your life. He’s just not as vocal about it. Why?
