5 Ideas for Giving Back This Holiday Season

7 Dec

The holidays are fast approaching and everyone is so busy getting ready.  Holiday cards, presents, parties, baking (need I go on?).  The holiday season is also about giving back to those who may not be so lucky to be “busy” with all the things so many of us take for granted.  If you’re feeling inspired to give back but not sure where to start, here are a few ideas that may inspire you:

  • Host a food drive where you work.  You can set up a collection box or site and have employees deliver the items to your local food pantry.  Be sure to contact your local food pantry ahead of time to see what they are in most need of.
  • Host a blood drive where you work.  There is almost always a blood shortage and most blood centers offer mobile services.
  • Sign up to help with your local soup kitchen.  Helping those in need where you live is a great way to connect with your community.
  • Call your local pet shelter and see what supplies they might need (they often are in need of newspapers, blankets and towels).  You can clean out your linen closets and help a charity at the same time (win win!).
  • Donate your gently used coats to those who don’t have any.  Many churches and local food pantries accept donations.  You can always find a drop off center at One Warm Coat.

I hope these ideas inspire you to give back this year!  The Stationery Studio hosted a food drive for our local food pantry this year for #GivingTuesday.  We were honored to help those in our community where we work and many of us live.  Along with the food donated, TheStationeryStudio.com gave a monetary donation to help with items they need to stock their shelves.

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!
