There are those of us who love the technology that we have at our finger tips, and then there are those of us who love the "old school" analog world of paper. For those of us who are "Stationery Lovers" there are five things we always need to have. So if you are one of them or have one in your life, you can never go wrong with any of these.
That is a no brainer right? Having these on hand are essential when you are a card lover. I have a problem, I always buy two sheets; one to save and one to use-call me a hoarder. Whether you purchase from USPS or use Vintage stamps keep them handy at all times.
I have more pens than I probably need but you never know when you need a certain one. I have fountain pens, calligraphy nibs and ink, gel pens, ball point pens, sharpies, fat markers, colored pencils... you get the idea. They all have an unique charm to bring to your paper, and can help you express that special word or phrase.
Ok this is where you channel your inner "romantic" writer with these things. I love the hand work of melting the wax and sealing the letter, its soooooo Bridgerton. If you have to buy a gift for a card lover, friends this is the one to get!
For as long as I can remember I have been awful about keeping up with cards I buy. I throw them in a drawer, a glove box in the car, my purse and sometimes I have no f'ing clue to where I put it and find it months later when it's too late. By having a cute card organizer to put the cards by occasion, people, or a place to store the stamps, it will keep your letter writing in order unlike my sock drawer. Yep found a card there too. Who knows what I was thinking.
