I have plenty of people to thank for all of the fun and special presents I received on Christmas.

Instead of waiting until I get back from my trip, I think it's best to just do it now. Plus, I love to write notes. It's actually something I look forward to. Snail mail is one of my favorite things – not to mention, I adore personalized stationery.

I have plenty of cards like this that I can pull out in a pinch, but I think having personalized cards (even something as simple as this one) makes them extra special. I ordered mine through Ellis Hill, my favorite paper source in Dallas. It was really fun ordering a new set with my new initials!

There's also plenty of chic options (love these) that you can order online. Fine Stationery has some amazing options. They have a lot, so it requires some scrolling and browsing, but it's definitely worth it. The same goes for Neimans.
