Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Here are some vetted gift ideas from our fave, Ana Reinert of The Well-Appointed Desk. Enjoy!
Paper goods are great gifts. The key to making a great gift is picking just the right angle. What else does your paper lover like? Movies? Cooking? Gardening? Travel? It seems every paper lover in my life also has other hobbies or interests.
My co-worker is a foodie so I think I’ll get her a Rite in the Rain notebook with a box of Palomino Blackwing 602s and a sharpener so she record her recipes in the potentially wet, messy environment that is a working kitchen. The Cavallini Garden Calendar would look great in her kitchen too.
For my (geek of a) husband, I think a new Star Wars A5 Moelskine and an Eames Acme pen would make a perfect gift. And they’re cheaper than the new guitar.
For the bike geek in my life, the engraved Jan Petr Obr Bicycle note cards are cool enough for any guy, bike Fred or not. To keep with the bicycling theme, the Upcycle Tire brush bag would pair well with the cards.
My “other mother” is an inspiring artist, I think she’d love the Fabriano Classic Blue Journal and thePalomino wood box 12-color set of colored pencils.
For my friend who’ll be travelling over the holidays, the Mudlark Artifact Luggage Tag for her suitcase, theEvernote A5 Moleskine and a Frank Lloyd Wright Robie House Acme Pen to document her travels.
I hope they won’t be too disappointed that I spoiled their holiday surprises here! Hopefully, it gave you some ideas.
