Whew, I don’t know about you, but it sure seems like there have been a ton of birthdays, bridal showers, baby showers and other events to celebrate lately; and before we even have time to count them all up, the holidays are going to be here. Which reminds us here how much we love the touch, feel and sentiment of a really perfect card—especially a letterpressed one!
We have two new card lines that have the perfect mix of style, class and cheekiness. Ilee Papergoods is a local studio that uses thick, lush papers with elegant, hand-printed designs. Breathless Paper is a collection from a couple from Atlanta who definitely have a sense of humor (we can only imagine what their dinner table conversations are like…!). Why wish someone a Happy Birthday when you can wish them a Happy Hangover Day (that’s the one that probably needs the wishes, right)? Cheeky apology cards are perfect for when you’ve acted like an ass (but you never do), and blurry, beer-goggled bro cards are there to help the fellas express their feelings.
What, a card isn’t enough? Ok, we’ve also got some great new gifty things to go along with them:
- Bluewick Candles, double-wicked candles in a big glass jar that come in delicious scents like Peony Black Currant and Grapefruit Lime White Pear ($20)
- Yummy Love and Toast hand creams ($9) and perfumes ($32), that come in the most adorable packages imaginable.
- Two Loops Bags, canvas totes and cosmetic bags perfect for carrying things and looking cute doing it.
- Glam Purse Hangers are stylish little hooks you can attach to the bar or table you’re sitting at so that you don’t have to put your bag on the floor (otherwise, yes, my bag does need its own chair, thank you very much). Only $12, and so ingenious we could pee our pants!
