What is a gift enclosure card and why do you need them? These versatile cards are not very big… less than 3×4 inches; but they make a huge impact when they accompany your gift. I like to use these cards when I want to write a quick line for the recipient. “Thanks for your hospitality!” … “Thanks for watching our dog while we were away.” … “I enjoyed working on this project with you.” … “Congratulations!” … “Thanks for being such a reliable babysitter.” … “We’re glad you’re our next door neighbors.” Any heartfelt sentiment looks larger than life on these practical little cards. Gift enclosure cards can be tucked inside a gift bag, taped to a package or attached to a bottle of wine with a ribbon. Gift enclosure cards also add a touch of class to a bouquet of flowers you pick up at the local grocery store! A sticky label the size of your thumb is a good way to indicate who a gift is for and who it’s from. Using a personalized or monogrammed gift enclosure card makes a fabulous impression—and it won’t get tossed out with the wrapping paper it’s permanently stuck to.

There are 19 grandchildren on my side of the family ranging in age from age 4 to 29! Family reunions are a little chaotic; but it’s always good to be together. We’ll have three weddings within eight months as excuses for a little family togetherness! My nieces and soon-to-be niece in-law love the idea of starting a new Life. Everything is new—especially their last name! So giving these brides personalized stationery and address labels to help them announce their new identities to the world has been a huge hit. American Stationery has a vast selection of writing papers, labels and stampers to choose from allowing me to select a very personal gift in every sense of the word.

My mother-in-law, Toots, is a funny and fun loving woman with whom I share a very special relationship. I’ve written to her once a week for as long as I’ve been married—21 years! She appreciates the personal mail; but she’s not much of a letter writer. Her idea of writing paper is sticky notes! She uses them for everything! When I discovered that American Stationery sold personalized Self-Stick Memos I knew they’d be a big hit with Toots! If you’ve got a sticky-note-aholic in your life, they’ll love these self-stick memos too.

The holidays are coming and it’s time to order my personalized partyware from American Stationery. A few years ago I discovered that napkins are the key to successful casual entertaining. I can get away with using a sturdy "paper" plate or clear "plastic" plate when I have a fancy or funny napkin to go along with them. American Stationery has several choices and options for the perfect napkin for any and every occasion! I can select the ink color, design & typestyle and the personalization for the DYO White Cocktail Napkins. The Colorful Party Napkins are imprinted in gold or silver foil—perfect for any holiday party you’re hosting this year. American Stationery’s Textured Napkins are more like cloth than paper and I use them for even formal social events. The DYO Tumblers come in 5 different sizes, clear or frosted and can be personalized or imprinted just like the napkins. It doesn’t have to cost a lot to host a simply elegant holiday gathering; and your personality and sense of style can shine through during a casual get together. Best of all, you can just throw everything away at the end of the night! The hard part for me will...Read More
