5 of our Favorite Very Merry Personalized Gift Ideas

12 Nov

It’s definitely gift season, that time of year when you carefully pick something you think will be enjoyed. We have called out 5 of our favorite personalized gift ideas that are items you might not have considered in the past.

Personalized Post-It Notes

1. Personalized Post-it® Notes. One of our favorite gift ideas. We mean, really…who gets these for themselves? But what a useful gift they will enjoy all year long! Perfect for little notes, messages and reminders for offices and homes. They are simply wonderful.

Cutting Boards2. Personalized Cutting Boards. Whether you select a glass or wood board, this is a really fun gift idea. The glass boards have great designs that can brighten up a kitchen and the wood ones are gorgeous and you can add a stand so it can become a room accent as well.
Personalized Barware3. Personalized Barware. We love giving a beautiful set of monogrammed wine glasses, high balls, micro brews or double old fashioned as a special holiday gift or housewarming present. We use them in our own homes too. Our guests are always impressed. These quality gifts quickly become a favorite, drink after drink.
Louisville Slugger4. A personalized Louisville Slugger baseball bat. Sports fans of all ages will be wowed by this special collectible. Anyway, who wouldn’t love the same quality bat that Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth used. With 120 years of experience, these are bats offer the best quality wood on the market and we offer them with a personalized name, just like the pros enjoy.
Personalized Stationery5. And, of course, a wonderful box of personalized stationery. Your recipient will certainly enjoy having easy access to a personal note card when they write their holiday thank yous this season and special love notes throughout the year.

Create your own list of personal favorite gifts and elevate your gift giving this season. Personalized gifts mean you took the time to pick out something especially for that someone special. It’s a great opportunity to be sure you select something not only fantastic but also something that will be well used.

Happy holidays!

Just a Little Reminder Can Make the Difference

24 Sep

Gift Reminder ServiceIf you’re anything like me, it’s hard to keep track of everyone’s birthdays, anniversaries and upcoming events.  That’s why we created our Gift Reminder Service.  It’s really helped me personally by providing an email reminder 5 weeks before an occasion and 3 weeks before which gives me plenty of time to order something special.

I love giving personalized gifts and I order a couple weeks before the occasion.  When I get the email reminder, it’s the perfect time for me to order a personalized gift.  It’s very easy to use.  To begin, you simply log in here.

Then you will be prompted to enter a recipient name, the event/occasion you want to remember, and the date of the event.  We save all your reminders and you can edit or delete them at any time.  I have reminders saved for Birthdays, Mother’s Day, Anniversaries, Father’s Day, and Thanksgiving.  Why Thanksgiving?  That’s when I order some hostess gifts for parties or dinners we’ve been invited to during the holiday season!

Be that special friend and relative who always remembers everyone’s special events and de-stress your life so you no longer have to worry about all those dates!  Take a few minutes and start your Gift Reminder Service now and stay on top of everything effortlessly from now on!

Best wishes,

Renee

 

New Puppy?

13 Sep

Do you (or someone you know) have a new puppy?  There’s nothing like a new puppy to add excitement to your life.  They’re so cute and full of energy!  Renee at The Stationery Studio just brought home this sweet puppy, Libby.  She’s a silver Lab and she’s adorable!  So what kind of gift do you give someone who gets a new puppy?  I made sweet Libby some homemade dog biscuits and put them in a reusable container.  I wanted to share the recipe with you … you can make these for any puppy (or any dog) who would love a yummy treat. WOOF!

 

Dog Biscuit Recipe (modified from Caser Millan’s original recipe)

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (substitute regular flour or oats if your dog is sensitive to wheat)
  • 1/2 c. ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp. salt (or less)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. Beef or chicken Bouillon granules (can substitute beef or chicken broth/stock)
  • ½ cup hot water

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Dissolve bouillon in hot water
  3. Add remaining ingredients
  4. Knead dough until it forms a ball (approximately 3 minutes)
  5. Roll dough until ½ inch thick
  6. Cut into slices or bone shapes (you can purchase a bone shaped cookie cutter to make shapes with)
  7. Place dough pieces on lightly greased cookie sheet
  8. Cook for 30 minutes

Maybe baking isn’t your thing?  No worries.  Check out the great selection of personalized pet gifts we sell at The Stationery Studio.  We just customized a personalized pet bowl for Charlie, the new puppy on the Today Show.  How cute is he with his new personalized bowl?
